At the end of October, we took KEA to get her 6 month shots, flu shot, and check up (even though she was about 7 months). This time at the doctor, she weighed 16.9 lbs and is 26 3/4 inches long! I can't believe how big she is getting! We are glad to see that she is finally catching up with her peers and her weight is starting to taper off a little. However, she is not in the 90% anymore, but that's okay. She is finally wearing 6 months clothing and beginning to do lots of things. She is sitting up now, can say things like ma, da, ba, blah, and is trying hard to skip the step of crawling. If she is on her belly, she automatically goes in the downward dog position (feet and hands on floor-like a bridge). Dr. J (her pediatrician) says that she may not crawl because she can easily go from sitting to standing with little support, plus the fact that we have hardwood. She loves to bounce in the doorway jumper and use her walker. We'll see though, she constantly surprises us with what she can do. She is continuing to create puddles of drool, but still has NO teeth! We are beginning to think that she will need baby dentures! (Ha, ha).
History in the making
