16 pounds of baby

28 Sep


Hadley had her 6 month check-up on Friday and she now weighs 16 pounds 5 ounces. This explains my defined arm muscles. The doctor was impressed with her standing ability, her health and her ability to grab onto anything within reach. She tried to take both the growth chart out of his hand and was very reluctant to release the stethoscope from her grip. Also, she showed her new skill of standing on one foot (her left) and the doctor confirmed this was an early sign of her foot preference. So, we might have a left footed and left handed daughter. She was a trooper about getting her shots and only let out a cry on the third one but the crying quickly ended after she was allowed to stand back up and she had no side effects the rest of the day.

In other news, her second tooth looks like it is about to poke through and the fact that her clothes are covered in drool seems to confirm this. If you look closely in the below picture you can see both. They may look small  but I think we both have tiny cuts on our fingers from the first ones. Those little teeth are sharp!

It was so nice to catch up with everyone (I forgot my camera) and to hear about the recent travels, weddings, babies and life in general. Also, it made us want to take another vacation very soon!

Kerry and Hadley did some shopping and enjoyed an afternoon of college football. Yesterday, was more football, more errands and just enjoying the time at home.
