I'm 6 Months!!

Ok - a little early - on the 23rd Annie will be 6 months but we had her 6 month checkup today!

Weight - 16 lbs
Head Circumference - 16 3/4
Length - 27 in. - 90-95th %tile
She is going to be a tall lady!

Still on reflux meds - and we'll try to wean her in 3 months. She also rolled over just once this week from belly to back, big accomplishment! She loves all her veggies so far - I made her some butternut squash that she devours each time we give it to her. Surprisingly she is not a huge fan of fruits just yet. She's so silly and loves games of peek-a-boo. She gets giggly and jumpy when we sing "If You're Happy and You Know It." Annie adores big sister Lucy - and will watch her dance and laugh each time she spins.
We love our sweet Annabelle!

here we go again! Croup - round 3! Poor kid - we just don't know why she keeps ending up with this. Thankfully our pediatrician called in some steroids a few hours after she woke up coughing. She had stridor at rest - so we needed the steroids. At first she wanted us to go to the ER, but we wanted to try the meds first. Today she is fever free and still has a rough cough. But she wanted to go to preschool. She's a trooper and on the mend!
Miss Annabelle allowed me to keep her on her belly for some time this day. About 2 min. before she started freaking out. :)
Check out this hair! It looks like this every single day. We cannot get the little tuft of hair to stay down. I don't know what we'll do when it actually does stay down -she won't look like herself!
