Yesterday was Little N’s 6 month appointment with Dr. G, and her stats are in!
Little N Skolrud:
Weight: 15 lbs, 1 oz (25-50%)
Height: 27 inches (90%)
Head Circumference: 17 inches (50-75%)
Still long and lean! Dr. G said she is a very healthy and happy girl!
Dr. G checked her heart and her ears. Little N wanted to play with the stethoscope. =)
She also encouraged Ry and me to start Little N on solids (which we did!) and also to work on training her to sleep independent of her swaddle. We’re gearing up to do that. It won’t be fun, but it will be worth it!
Then Little N got her rotovirus oral vaccine
And she got her one shot – a D-TAP combo. We mainly want her vaccinated for pertussis, but they don’t separate that out into a single shot.
A second or two of crying and she was good!
Nurse P does a good job of making sure the shot is as quick and pain-free as possible. =)
Later in the afternoon, we started on solids – avocado!
Here’s a video her first bite:
She seemed to like them!
She ended up eating for about 15-20 minutes, and went through 2/3rds of the 1 ounce cube I melted down. It mostly stayed in her mouth or on her face. Not bad for the first time!
We’re so proud of the sweet little lady you’re becoming, Little N! We are excited to introduce you to new tastes and textures. =)
