Half a year already

Mackenzie is 6 months old today! She had her check-up this morning and she's 15lbs, 9 oz and 25 1/4 inches long. She's grown about 3 pounds and 1 1/2 inches since her 4 month check-up. She's on a pretty good schedule, now. Sleeping 12 hours at night, usually going down without a fuss, eating 4 times a day and napping twice a day. The only negative is she's still waking up to eat at least once in the night, usually between 1 and 2 am. Her pediatrician said today I really need to break that habit, since she doesn't need to eat at night. Eastier said than down when breaking said habit requires letting her cry herself back to sleep and Emma's room is right next door. We're going to try tonight, though.

She doesn't have any teeth yet, but with the way she's drooling and chewing on things, they've got to be coming soon! She's getting closer to sitting up, can roll both ways and still loves her feet. She likes to be in her exersaucer and we just tried the jumper the other day. Once she figured out what to do she loved it.

Took some pictures today. Although she wouldn't smile for any of them. Could be those 3 shots she got today - they made her a tad fussy.

(The pictures that were here will be back in a few days.)

can't believe she is already six months and my three month old niece weighs more than her. CRAZY.

oh sweet baby - look at those beautiful blues full of tears. Poor little thing - I don't understand why they have to give them so many shots at one time. Good luck with the "letting her cry it out" it's harder on us then them - but it still doesn't make it any eaiser!
