So we had Penelope's 6 month well baby check up today! No big surprise, she's over the 95% in height and weight. She's 29 inches (my guess was off by a half an inch) and 21 lbs 2 oz (my guess was off by 4 oz). So the average size of a 12 month old. Her growth has actually slowed, she only gained a half inch in the last month and a half, so I'm hoping this means we'll get some wear out of her 18 month sized clothing.
Everything else looked good. The Ped said her runny nose is leftover from the ear infection and should clear up in a couple of days. He also said he thinks she'll be walking by 10 months! So Bryan and I have about 4 more months of peace :)
She's still not rolling, but our Ped isn't worried. She's sitting unassisted (and has been for quite awhile), is standing with just a little assistance, and has got the crawling position down pat - some of these are 9 month markers (and others are 6 month) so he says that skipping rolling is just fine.
She's also been SUPER chatty lately. Adding in more consonants... "g" is currently her favorite, but she also makes the "b", "h" and occasionally "p" & "d" sounds as well. Still no "m" :( We're pretty sure "hi" will be her first word.
So that's pretty much all that's new in the Penelope front.
It Feels Like No Coincidence...
