6 month Stats

My baby's growing up!! Technically she's almost 7 months, but we had to push back her 6 month check-up until she was fully recovered from her palate surgery. She endured one oral vaccine (she spat half of it out on to my face while she was crying) and 4 shots including the flu shot and the H1N1 shot. Poor baby! Mia did great afterwards though. No fever or fussiness.

Weight: 17 lbs 6 ounces, 68 percentile (This is after losing weight after her surgery!)
Height: 26.2 inches, 53th percentile
Head Circumference: 16.6, 32 percentile (She takes after her dad's small head...this is an improvement from when she was born...her head was in the 5th percentile then!)

New things Mia's doing:
-Sits up all by herself! No pillows needed!
-Pulls up to standing by grabbing the laundry basket, my shirt collar when I'm sitting, and my pant legs!
-Gets on to her knees and hands then plops on her belly.
-Eats 3 meals a day of solids. Oddly she LOVES the combination of prunes, papaya, and avocado (we have to give her prunes because she's been constipated since she started eating solids more frequently). She hates peas...I have to hide it in her sweet potatoes, but she still manages to figure it out and spit it out.
-Started to grab finger foods with her palm...They don't actually make it to her mouth yet because she squashes the crap out of it!
-Screams and shakes her head when she doesn't want something
-Can stay in the church nursery without crying! Last week they had 12 girls and 1 boy in the 5-8 month room! CRAZY! Poor boy!
-Starting music classes in March!
