Big Baby!


Last week I took Baby Violet to her 6 month check-up. She is doing great. I realize this is just interesting to moi, but here goes anyway.

Violet is growing great. The pediatrician was very surprised at what a great crawler Violet is. In fact, this week Violet has started trying to climb stairs. Oh boy!

She is a very strong baby, and I would dare say even athletic! She is quite happy, and she is very vocal. She is loud when she wants to be - her little voice is going from sounding like a baby dolphin to more like a dinosaur ROAR!


Her stats are:

Weight: 20 pounds (90th percentile)
Height: 28 inches (95th percentile)
Head Circumference 45.5cm (96th percentile)

Last visit (her four month appointment) - she was 26.3 inches long (86th percentile), 18 lbs. 4oz in weight (95th percentile) and 43.9cm in head circumference (92nd percentile).

She always manages to be around the 90-95th percentile for everything...so I was kinda laughing a bit this time because the pediatrician was trying to make sure I feed her enough. I kind of looked at her like, "Does she LOOK well-fed?! Ummmm...because she is!"

Seriously though, she is still just nursing pretty much exclusively. We have been introducing some baby food to her - and she is still much more interested in nursing than anything else - by a long shot. So, we're taking the solid food thing very slowly. No need to rush, as long as she's just kinda getting that opportunity to explore food. So far, she likes hummus and organic applesauce - or at least likes to spit it out. Haha!

Glad the visit went well, she's a little dote. And great that nursing is going so well: she is obviously thriving on it, so there's no need to worry about how much she's getting! (not sure why paediatricians get fixated about "enough")!!
When my youngest was little and loud, I remember telling him not tobe so loud and his reply "I have to be loud to be heard in this family!" It was true!!
