And guess what? I survived! Emily did too, she only cried for a few seconds and then she was as fine as ever. I am so incredibly lucky to have an easy baby. I've heard people say that once a baby hits that 6 month mark, a change happens. The baby is happier, easier to deal with, and just a joy to be around. And it's true! A few days after her half birthday I started noticing a change in her. She is rarely fussy anymore, she is sleeping better, and she is a barrel of laughs!
Anyway, she now weighs 14 lbs. 2 oz which means she gained 2 lbs. 1 1/2 oz. since we were there the last time. She's still not as heavy as I thought, but at least she was back on the charts this time. She measured 26 1/4 inches long, and it seems like her head was 16 and some fraction of an inch in circumference, I don't remember exactly. Sorry but I don't get very excited about head circumferences.
Our little genius is
Unless she gets sick, we don't have to see the doctor again for 3 months! But we do have to go back tomorrow for a routine vision screening and next month for a flu shot. Boo!
