Who's a big girl?

Lucy had her 6-month check-up today, accompanied with 4 shots :( This time two nurses came in to do them so they could each do one thigh at the same time while her mother lovingly looked her daughter in the eye and she looked back screaming "whyeeeee????" But we survived. I hate to tell her we have to go back in a month for another flu shot!

Her stats are:
Weight: 16lbs. 2.5 oz. (50th percentile)
Height: 28" long (95th percentile)
Head circumference: 44 cm (80th percentile)
She's gained 2.5 lbs and 2 inches since her 4-month appointment. What do percentiles mean? For weight she is right around the middle in that 50% of kids weigh less than her at 6 months of age and 50% of kids weigh more than her at 6 months of age. For height, she's tall, 5% of kids are taller than her at this age and 95% are shorter. Who cares, right? Doctor said she's doing great, reaching all those milestones and very strong!

How's she doing? SO HARD right?!

I finally looked up Lucy's photos. ADORABLE! I'm sure you had a hard time making decisions there. She is getting so big. I can't believe how fast these girls are growning!

Happy belated anniversary! It has been too long since I've checked up on your site. Glad to see that all are happy and well.

I LOVE the photo with the apples!
