6 month check up

We went in for Sophie's six month check up this morning and she's doing great! She now weighs 17 lbs, 6.5 oz (75th percentile) and is 27.5 inches long (97th percentile!)! The doctor said that everything looked great! He said that we could probably feed her more than we do now (I feed her fruit and oatmeal in the morning and veggies and rice in the evenings). He said we could do 3-4 feedings a day instead of two. He also said that it would be fine to start giving her some fruits/veggies off our plates, as long as she can tolerate their texture. He then gave me a quick lesson on how to dislodge any stuck pieces of food. 

I can't believe how quickly she's growing. She is truly a joy to be around (well, sometimes at bedtime, joy might not be the first word that comes to mind). She is such a sweet girl, though! She's sitting up by herself and scooting all over the floor. It's not quite a full crawl yet, more like a little army crawl, but she gets where she wants to go. She's become much more enamored with the cat....who doesn't want too much to do with her and really doesn't like it when she pulls his tail. She's not quite able to pull herself up yet, but she's pretty close. If you let her stand, she will hold on to something and hold herself up. She's as strong as an ox - she broke my necklace this morning while waiting at the doctor!
