6 month check-up

We went to the doctor on Monday and all is well. Rachel weighed 17 lbs, 14 oz and was 26 1/2 inches long. She is still in the 90th percentile for height and weight. Her head was 17 inches, which is still only 75th percentile. She has a little head and little feet!!! She actually lost an ounce from her last month appointment. She only has gained 10 ounces since her 4 month appointment. Dr. Hull said that it wasn't a big deal since she is still very healthy and she is slimming probably because she is becoming more active. She is also only taking 3 bottles a day now. She told me that we can start giving her 2nd foods and even meats!!! We have tried macaroni and cheese, turkey dinner, and sweet potatoes with corn! She seems to like them all okay. We have also been giving her some finger foods. There are some little fruit puffs that dissolve in her mouth and some veggie things that look like cheetos. She loves them!!! She is sitting up pretty well now and is really starting to move when you put her on the floor. She is getting so big!

This morning she was getting fussy so we put her down for her morning nap. I was about to leave to go get a pedicure and I asked Brice to go check on her. He came back down and asked me if I covered her up. I told him no and he said, "Well, you gotta come look at this." I went upstairs and Rachel had somehow turned herself completely sideways and pulled her quilt off of the side of the bed and on top of her. It is so cute. Not only had she done that, it was nicely draped over her and it looked like someone put it on her. Here is a picture of that!!! I love that little girl!!!
