6 month checkup

Friday was Emma's 6 month checkup & Dr. K was very pleased with her progress. Emma weighed 13 lbs, 12.5 oz & 26.25" tall. I was a bit worried when I saw that Emma's weight was in the 10% but Dr. K said not to worry about that since Emma has been totally of the chart & now she is back on & going up the curve. Her height was in the 75% which is probably dead on since she is all legs.

Dr. K says Emma can start eating cereal & soon will move on to fruit, veggies & a cup. Developmentally Emma is slightly behind due to her surgery & post-op time but she should catch up. She isn't rolling over & doesn't really seem interested but Dr. K just told me to be patient & keep doing tummy time with her & she will come around soon.
Emma did try cereal for the first time over the weekend & just as everyone had told me, she didn't like it. She made a lot of funny faces & kept sticking her tongue out then came the tears.

Emma's first taste of cereal.

I added juice to the cereal instead of milk/formula and my kids ate it much better. She is just beautiful! Love the pictures!

She is such a pretty girl!! So glad that she is doing well. She is a beauty! You know, I think my girls were both always on the really low side of the weight scale---their pediatrician said they were just going to be Volkswagens and not Cadillacs!! Little Miss Emma looks great and I hope we can meet her one day soon!! Hope you and Chris are well, too!
