Doctor Visit

We are happy, healthy, and we like to eat. :) This was Sofia's 6 month check-up, but it was actually on her 7 month birthday.

Length: 27.5 inches (90th Percentile)
Weight: 20 lb 1 oz (95+ Percentile)
Head Circumference: 43.5 cm (75th percentile)

Everything is great. The doctor said that Sofia will probably always like to eat and just to make sure we have healthy, nutritious stuff available for her. And since Sofia is sitting up like a champ, she said to go ahead and start giving Sofia stuff off our plate as long as it is soft and doesn't have added salt.....bananas, small, cooked carrot pieces, ziewback toast, etc.

And daycare went great! Every time I picked her up or dropped her off, a different teacher would tell me how great a baby Sofia is....of course, we already knew this. The first day she was a little hesitant and just sat back and took it all in, binky going a mile a minute. The second and third day, she was playing before I even left and would give me a smile as I walked out the door. I don't know that I could have left her if she was crying. It seems that most of the other kids are part-time as well, in fact, I get the impression that they come in about 10 am and leave early afternoon. When I drop her off and pick her up, she's one of three on her side of the room, but there are plenty of cribs for other babies. They must come after I drop her off and leave before I get there. Even when I went and got her at 11:30 for her doctor appointment, it wasn't too crowded. And the one teacher had to take her from my arms and give her a hug before we left.

She's growing like a weed! I'm glad she's doing well with daycare.

It is great that you have found a daycare that you like and trust. And, I bet that it is great for Mommy's sanity too.

She's a big baby! Annabeth was like that too, and I just called her healthy. :-)
