6 Month Check-Up

27 Jul

We went to the doctor today for Kyler’s 6 month check-up. She is doing great and we had a good visit! She slowed down in weight gain slightly but picked it up in height. Shocker, right? We talked about food and sleep mainly. Food- how much she hates it and Sleep- how inconsistent she is.

For the food…. she told us to keep trying multiple times a day. Try before her bottle so she is nice and hungry. Since she is still doing great on weight, she isn’t worried yet. We are going to keep sending food to daycare so they can continue to work with her there. Keep your fingers crossed for us!

For sleep….time to let her cry it out. Sometimes, she will sleep through the night. Sometimes, she will wake up once or twice. So we will now let her cry when she wakes up. No more getting up to put the pacifier back in. Why do I have a feeling there are going to be a lot of sleepless nights ahead…..

I asked about her pacifier and if it was time to start getting rid of it. She said no, not yet. That made me kind of happy because I am not sure that is a battle I am ready to fight yet!

Her 6 month stats:

Weight: 17 lbs – 75th percentile

Length: 27 1/4 inches – 95th percentile

Head: 16.5 inches – 30th percentile

She didn’t get her shots because she had a small fever so we have to go back next week for those! Good news, her ear infection cleared up and it appears her cold is gone!

Things Kyler Loves:

  • Trying to crawl – Anytime she is on her belly she tries to get up and crawl. Right now we are in the rocking stage.
  • Chewing – Still chewing away!
  • Laughing – She laughs a lot at me. Especially when I pretend I am going to bite her.
  • Smiling – She smiles all the time and smiles at other people.
  • Puppies – She still can’t get enough of the dogs. They are her buddies!
  • Mom & Dad – She now reaches her arms out for us to pick her up when she sees up. I love that!
  • Books – She still loves the books!
  • Mickey Mouse Clubhouse – Every once in a while, we will have this on while we are playing. She loves it. Not too much TV for little Kyler though!

Things Kyler doesn’t love so much:

  • Food – Obviously
  • Sleeping through the night – Nothing new here folks!

We don’t go back until 9 months! I can only imagine how much different she will be.
