Sailor's 6 month check up!


Sailor and I had the day off today. She had her 6 month check up just a little late. I am not sure what happened with the scheduling. Daddy met us at the doctor's office. Everything went really well. She is 71st percentile for height, 44th percentile for weight and right at 50th percentile for head circumference. Dr. Fogle is so proud of how Sailor is growing. He says she is eating right and growing at a good pace. She is drinking around 30 oz per day and eating 4 servings of solid foods including cereal, fruits and vegetables. She enjoyed her visit as usual with her happy self laughing and smiling at all the nurses until that one nurse acted like her friend and then stabbed her in her legs with 3 shots. I know, I exaggerate just a little and this sounds just a little more violent than it actually was. We are just a little dramatic when it comes to things like this. We have been anxious for a week now just thinking about getting shots. This part of well visits are never fun but I have to say Miss Sailor is a trooper. Although she turns fire engine red with the initial prick she was smiling within 10 minutes after and even gave that sneaky nurse that pretended to be her friend a grin! Since it was so beautiful outside we convinced daddy to take the rest of the day off and go home with us. Needless to say it did not take much convincing since I think he had already planned this. We had lunch at the Smokey Mountain Brewery where we ran into Nana, Aunt Vicki and Aunt Pam. They were having a girls day out shopping. Sailor took a long nap and then we headed to the park. It was a great day. Much needed after a busy weekend that was not too relaxing.

Those pictures are great! I love the bright tulips framing Sailors sweet face. I am so glad the well visit went well! Shots are never fun, but necessary. Connor has always been a trooper too, although I must say that as he has gotten older it has gotten worse. I think he really realizes what pain is now. In a couple of weeks Connor goes for the MMR and I am a little nervous about this. You know with all of the research done on the possiblity that it causes autism in some kids. I think I have decided to go ahead and do it though. Keep sending the pictures, Connor loves looking at them!

I love those pictures! The tulips really are pretty. I hope they still look that good when Carrie comes to take her pictures with the boys next week.
