Tale of the Tape

Yesterday was Makenna's six month appointment, and right off the bat, her doctor was impressed at how she sat up throughout the duration of the visit, all while being completely attentive and focused on him. She stared at the doctor as if she understood everything he was talking about! Maybe it's because she knew exactly what he meant when he told us that we can start her on solids? Whatever it was, she found him to be quite intriguing, and only took her stare off of him to catch a glimpse of herself in the mirror-what a ham!

So in regards to her current status, here are her numbers. At six months of age, she weighs in at a healthy 19 pounds, putting her in the 97th percentile for her weight. Yeah, apparently we starve this kid! She is 26 inches long, which places her in the 50th percentile for her height. Both her mommy & I aren't exactly "towering" figures, so for her to be in the "average height" group isn't too big a deal. Finally her head circumference was something like 43.5 cm, which is in the 75th percentile. Big head = big brain?

She had another series of shots as well, and of course those put her over the top. She wasn't too thrilled with the oral vaccine she took, and the shots in the legs didn't help any either. She didn't cry for too long, which was good since she was going to spend some time with grandma. We dropped her off to stay with grandma for a couple of hours while Enza & I visited the doctor regarding baby #2. All in all, this was a good day for Makenna. We're starting the solids tonight so hopefully we'll have some great footage of little Kenna making a big mess! Stay tuned...
