Today was Gabi’s 6 month check-up. The doctor was very impressed with her progress. She is completely caught up, her developmental milestones are right on target for a 6 month old, which she is. She can pass objects from one hand to the other, she turns her head when she hears my voice, and yesterday she started creeping backwards. I think crawling can’t be too far in the future.
Here are Gabi’s vital statistics:
height: 26″ (55th%)
weight: 15 lbs. 15.5 oz. (50th%)
She has really shot up in height – almost 3″ in the past 2 months. I have noticed that Gabi’s toes are starting to push against her footie pajamas. You know what that means – either I need to start cutting off the toes of the pajamas, or switch to 6-9 month sized clothes. I decided to go ahead and switch to 6-9 month clothes. When I was in the hospital my mother-in-law went through Rachel’s clothes, and put away the things that were too small. So after lunch I started packing up Gabi’s old 3-6 month clothes, and going through Rachel’s old stuff to pass down to Gabi. I hate going through the clothes, because Rachel loves it so much. She jumped right in and started helping – pulling out the clothes from the bags, trying things on. It was a good thing, though, because it turns out that we had gotten a bag of hand-me-down clothes from somebody while I was in the hospital, I don’t know who, and it turns out there were several things in it that were perfect for Rachel. She found a pair of Dora and Boots pajamas, which she put on right away (it was not a problem because she didn’t have any clothes on except for her diaper). She really liked them.
Here is Rachel training Scout. She is wearing her newly found pajamas with a sticker that Gabi got for her at the pediatrician’s office.
