  • We started cereal, she loves it! We also have given her sweet potato, apple sauce, mashed banana and butternut squash. She is a champion eater!
  • Takes 5, 4-5 Ounce bottles a day.
  • Sits without support.
  • Passes toys from hand to hand.
  • Can successfully put her pacifier in her mouth.
  • Jabbers and does lots of happy screams!
  • Wears size 2 diaper, 3-6 month clothing Hair finally fell and looks more normal.
  • I still cannot believe how much hair she has, we can do things to her hair that we could not do with Addison until she was well over a year.
  • Still no teeth and no sign of them coming soon.
  • She loves to chew, but what baby doesn't at this age.
  • Loves bath time! She kicks, splashes and squeals!
  • Loves her exersaucer, jumparoo and play mat.
  • No sleep issues!

I took McKenna for her 6 month well check, everything went well. They only thing I need to work with her more is rolling back to tummy. She had no issues with her shots, such a big girl! Here are her stats: Weight: 15 pounds, 2 ounces (30th percentile) Height: 25.5 inches (60th percentile) Head Circumference: 43cm (75th percentile) Her weight dropped off a little bit, but Dr. Sperling was not too worried. She has a big head, you only really notice it when you try and put a hat on her head. I think it is funny that her head is only 4cm smaller than Addison's and they are 17 months apart. Now that McKenna is older and is doing more than eating and sleeping, I have to be careful not to compare her milestones with Addison. There are some that Addison was doing that McKenna is not, which bothers me, but I am trying to remember that all children develop at a different pace. McKenna is not "behind" in anything.
