Amelia Earns an A+
At Amelia's six month doctor's appointment, we confirmed what we've suspected all along - Amelia is in the 75th to 90th percentile of all babies. That's an A+ as far as we're concerned! She weighs 19 pounds, nine ounces, is 26 3/4 inches long and her head measures 17 1/2 inches. She cried for a few minutes during her shots, but Jason held her hands, so that made it much better. When she got home, she had a new food (applesauce) and loved it and giggled in her playpen. She even took off one of her Snoopy band-aids (herself!) and tried to eat it. Probably didn't taste as good as the applesauce. And she's getting a bottom tooth - her first. So far, she doesn't seem to be in too much pain from it. The doctor said she's hitting all the benchmarks and growing remarkably well. We figured as much.
