We went to the doctor yesterday for our 6 month check up. Ella now weighs 20 pounds 15 ounces and is 27" long. She is in the 95% percentile for both height and weight. She is my little sumo baby and I just love it! I mean, up until 3 weeks ago the only thing she has had is breast milk, so I must have some good stuff in order to fatten her up like that. I feed her every 3-3-1/2 hours, like the doctor tells me to. She just told me that breast babies are bigger.
We showed the doctor how Ella can sit up on her own, roll over both ways, crawl backwards and how she likes to pull up if she is holding your hands. And we showed her Ella's TWO teeth that are coming in! (picture to come soon if I can get that little booger to open her mouth long enough!) The doctor was impressed (I am sure she says this to all moms to further inflate their egos about their children, but I will just pretend that she doesn't). Then, it was that time...the time we dread, me more than her because she doesn't know what's coming...SHOTS! She had to get three and she cried a big cry for about 5 seconds, then it was all over and I picked up my chunky baby and headed out of there. I strapped her in her car seat and she was asleep in 4 minutes.
Don't you wish you could get over something so fast? And not even have a memory of it? Must be nice. So, we headed to WalMart for some groceries. My mom is coming in town tomorrow morning for my sister-in-law's baby shower on Saturday. Ella and I are very excited about this and I think Ella may want a new dress to wear to the occasion. And we all know what Ella wants Ella gets. =)
