6 Month Checkup
Taylor had her six month checkup today! She weighed in at 16 pounds 8 ounces and is now 27 and 1/2 inches long! Dr. Franklin said that everything looked great! So, once again, another excellent report. Of course, we know that we have a perfect baby, but it is nice to have it confirmed! We also got the green light to start baby food, so we will be feeding her green peas in the next couple days. Today was a much easier visit since Blake was able to come with us. This was his first doctor visit to come to. He definitely was not looking forward to the end of the visit...the shots, but it sure was nice to have him there to help hold her while I filled out paperwork. When we finally got called back, he helped get her undressed and entertained her when she got fussy. While Dr. Franklin was talking to us, she even fell asleep on him. I think the sweetest part of the day was right after her shots. I held her as I always do during the shots. The difference this time was as soon as the shots were over, Blake took her, and she was immediately quiet and laid her little head on his shoulder. She felt so safe and secure with her Daddy, and I think his heart melted right then and there. So far, these shots haven't been as bad as the last round (even though they are the same ones she got last time). She generally sleeps more after her shots, so hopefully that will be the only side effect tonight. Of course I am ready with the Tylenol to help her feel better if she needs it. We are going to bed a little later tonight because she napped later this afternoon. I think story time is about over, so I better go get her and put her to sleep!
