Six Months Old Already?

February was a big month for Amelia. After reading the blog, my father promptly purchased an airline ticket and came to visit for the weekend. We had a fabulous time just relaxing and laughing with Amelia. She’s so very happy. I’m pleased to report that she has now met every one of her grandparents. Next we’ll focus on meeting cousins.

She ate her first food, winter squash, in the presence of Papa. She has now moved on to peas and sweet potatoes. Fruit is next on the list. She prefers to take the spoon from you and feed herself with it. What a mess!

Last Friday, February 23, Gene proudly announced that we have a tooth. I ran downstairs, inspected her gums myself, and confirmed that a tooth was breaking through. That’s when I began to sob. My baby has a tooth!?!? How can this be? The time is going by just too fast. You couldn’t really see it for several days, but now it’s a beautiful pearly white getting taller each day. It’s official – I’m the mother of a baby with a tooth.

Our dear little baby is resting at the moment; recovering from her series of four immunizations today. It was her six month well baby visit. Here are her official stats.

Birth - 8 lb. 1 oz. weight & 21 1/4 in. long

2 months – 10 lb. 12 oz. weight (50%) & 22 3/4 in. long (75%) & 15 1/8 in. head (40%)

4 months – 13 lb. 3 oz. weight (45%) & 24 7/8 in. long (85%) & 15 7/8 in. head (35%)

6 months – 14 lb. 9 oz. weight (25%) & 25 7/8 in. long (70%) & 16 1/2 in. head (40%)

As you can see, we have a tall yet petite little gal on our hands!!!

A baby with a tooth? Doesn't seem possible!
Time flies! Next thing you know she'll be in college.
Don't mind me, I am still grieving my little niece all grown up and getting married. She was just 3 a minute ago.
