6 Months!


My little Livvy is 6 months! Where has the time gone!? That is half a year! WOW! Yesterday she had her 6 month Dr.'s visit. I had planned to have my Mom come and watch Ansley while I took Olivia for her shots. So, yesterday morning my Mom comes over at 9:00 to watch Ansley, who just woke up and is still in her jammies. As I am walking out the door I tell my Mom that I am sad that Livvy has to get shots (because it is awful watching your baby get poked!). Ansley freaked out, like sobbing! She runs to the door and stands to where I cannot open it, and tells me that she doesn't want anyone to hurt her sister, and that she is NOT getting shots! All through sobs. She then proceeds to run to the car and buckle herself into her carseat in her nightgown! I ended up letting her come with me, and my Mom tagged along to help. On the way Ansley said what I think might just be the sweetest thing ever, "I wish I was Olivia so I could get the shots for her." How sweet is that!? What a good big sister!!!
The Doctor's appointment went fine, and Ansley left the room while we did the shots! Livvy barely cried, and actually grinned a the nurse after he was done.
She weighed in at 15lbs 12oz (47th percentile), 26 inches (60 percentile), and her head which I cannot remember the measurement for is finally in the 20th percentile! Dr. said she was doing well, and doing all that she should be at this age!
Liv is up on all fours, and scoots everwhere! She has started laughing a ton! And she has tried avocado, sweet potato, bananas, and apples, and was pretty unimpressed with all of them. She still likes mama's milk best- and that is fine with me!
