Meredith is 6 months old and today she had her check up and vaccinations. She's continuing in her growth - just fine. She grew an inch from in the 2 months since her last appointment and gained 2 pounds as well. Below are her stats.
Weight: 18 lb 12 oz - 91.3 percentile
Height: 28.5" - 99.61 percentile
By comparison, she weighs about the same that Mackenzie did at 9 months and her height matches Mackenzie's at approximately 10 or 11 months. Because of this, I pulled out some of Mackenzie's 12 month clothes yesterday and she seemed to fill them out ok. The jeans were a little long, but they fit her pretty well in the waist.
At 6 months, Meredith...
...eats 2 meals a day and drinks 5 bottles a day.
...wears size 6-12 month clothing, depending on the brand.
...wears size 2 shoes.
...sits up with support.
...moves all the time and kicks her legs a lot.
...is rocking back and forth on her hands and knees.
...screams at a VERY high pitch when upset or wants our attention.
...still likes to hear me or Mackenzie sing.
...goes to sleep on her own at night. I swaddle just her legs and put her in her crib with her pasi and lovie and she goes to sleep.
...puts everything to her mouth. (This is why the playroom had to get organized before she starts crawling.)
...loves her big sister very much and smiles whenever she comes near.
As always below are the comparison pictures of the girls.
And here's a collage of Meredith's first 6 months.
