Well Baby Check Up

June 2009: 6 months old

Bailey had her 6 month Well Baby check up on Wednesday. Our little munchikin weighed in at 14.09 pounds (25%), she measured in at 26 inches (50%) and her head measured in at 42.5 inches (50%). She has hit all of her milestones except for sitting unsupported. The Doctor claims it's the exersaucer's fault, but I think he is wrong again. Am I one of those parents? He said that it was preventing her from crawling, but she seems to prefer to roll around vs. crawling. She's a rolly polly baby. Well, regardless, we just got it and she doesn't like to be in it for very long, 15 min at the most so I don't really think it's holding her back in the way he claims. I think Bailey prefers to take the easy way out, she's no sucker LOL. JK! From everything I've read babies learn things at their own pace and if they are behind in one area they are usually ahead in others. Her latest tricks are clapping and peek-a-boo.

Clapping... it's still kind of random, she hasn't associated it with being proud or happy yet

Peek-a-Boo... also very new for her to be doing it on her own, too cute!

Bailey has mastered rolling over so well that it's her primary source of transportation LOL... Mr. Kitty doesn't know what to make of Bailey's mobility feature now!

On the day of the appointment we noticed a new development in Bailey's world... her first tooth. So cute =) Then the very next day she grew it a friend. So little B has two brand new baby teeth pushing through. This in combination with her 6th month immunization shots has given me some trying days this week! Nap times have become an all day battle, she fights sleep as if it were her enemy. Dosing her with infant Tylenol has helped, but I hate having to do that. But her lack of sleep is causing her to get dark circles under her eyes to match my set and that scares me. I have started giving her baths twice a day now, once late in the morning after she eats her solids and once at night. The baths are to help her sleep and it's been working so I will keep it up for a while until she stops the battles. She is the cleanest baby ever LOL.

These are her toothy shots, if you can see them poking through

new baby teeth = tired girl

    samantha didn't crawl until around 8 months, and then she was up and walking at 9 1/2! Jack crawled sooner, but didn't walk till close to a year. they are all so different...I do think a lot of it is what motivates each kid...it's always something different, just like their personalities :)
