I’ve been meaning to download all of the videos from our camera, and finally got around to it today. It was so fun to go back in time a few months and hear how different Maggie sounded, and to see how small she was.
She’s now 6 months old, rolls over like a champ, can sit unassisted for a few minutes at a time (until she gets distracted by a toy or something), and continues to grow and change every day.
We went to her well baby checkup on Monday and she’s now 19 lbs 15 oz (good thing our car seat goes up to 32 lbs or we’d be buying a new one already) and 27 3/4″ long. She’s in the 99th percentile for both height and weight, just a few ounces and an inch or so from being off the charts. (We call her our little overachiever!)
She loves veggies and fruit, and devours both rice cereal and oatmeal. So far she’s tried grean beans, peas, squash, sweet potatoes, pears, peaches, and bananas. She seems to like them all, although some took 2 or 3 tries before she realized they weren’t all that bad. We haven’t tried prunes, yet . . .we’re saving those for a “special occasion”.
Here’s a video from the day Maggie rolled over for the first time. JLo was kind enough to video it for us. Mike called me at work to tell me that she had rolled over, and I was so excited the rest of the day, counting the hours until I could get home and see it for myself!
