I'm 6 MONTHS!!! (and 3 days)

I did not post on Saturday because I wanted to wait for her 6 month checkup so I could put her stat in as well. Man does time fly. How in the world have we already reached 6 months. I saw a newborn in the waiting room at the pediatrician and thought to myself "I don't think Kelsey was ever that little" Truth is she probably wasn't, but I look at her today and don't remember her tiny anymore. She has grown so much and learned so much already in these past 6 months, I can only imagine what will happen in the next 6 months and years after that. Here's a quick list of some of Kelsey's accomplishments:

  1. Rolls from front to back and back to front
  2. Smiles and laughs (always when she sees her daddy)
  3. Grabs and reaches for objects with both hands
  4. Holds herself up really high when on her belly
  5. Is sitting almost on her own (occasionally tips to the side)
  6. Tries to scoot forward toward and object but ends up pushing back (This frustrates her as she moves away from her toys)
  7. "Stands" when held up with her feet on a solid surface
  8. Says mamama, dadada, bababa, and likes to use a screaching voice when excited
  9. "Drinks" ( I use that term lightly)from a sippy cup while holding it on her own
  10. Sleeps through the night
  11. Can turn on the aquarium mobile in her crib by herself
  12. Throws her toys out of her carseat, stroller, store cart
  13. She's very interactive and alert
  14. and her hair is getting lighter in the back

    Kelsey is still off the charts for her height. She's 27 3/4 inches (which makes her the height of an average 10 month old). She has finally come down to the chart for her weight. She's 18 lbs 11 ounces. Her weight has slowed a bit, but she is more active now. Still she is in the 95th percentile. And her head circumference is 14 inches, which is in the 75th percentile.
All Smiles :-)

I am still nursing her ( we'll see what happens when she gets teeth). She eats rice cereal twice a day and we are getting ready to start adding in pureed foods. We are going to start with avacado in the next few days. We also learned that since we don't use tap water for her cereal, her 1 formula bottle a week, or her sippy cup, that we need to make sure we buy water that has fluoride added to it.

All By MyselfSoooooo Serious

Oops. I guess I can get the "bad mommy of the year" award for not getting fluoridated water for my kids. Who knew?

And how cute are you Miss Kelsey? We love you!
