Half Way There!

Kayleigh turned 6 months this past Monday. She is half way to being a year old. She had her wellness exam today and she is doing great.  She weighed in at 14 lbs 1 oz and is 24 and a half inches long.  She is finally 2 feet tall! She isn't a fast growing baby and she is without a doubt going to by my little peanut for quite some time. She is in the 6th percentile for height, 14th for weight and 59th for her head size. Just two months ago she was only 7th percentile for weight so I am quite surprised she made such a jump. 

She is officially a sitter. Although she still hasn't quite figured out that if she leans backwards there is nothing there to catch her. She is still working on being able to sit up from laying flat on her back. She can get up onto her hands and knees but she doesn't know what to do once she gets there.  Usually she just gets frustrated.  It's funny though - for a baby that hated tummy time she LOVES sleeping on her tummy. In fact she sleeps with her butt in the air half the time. It's too cute.  Since I'm still a paranoid mommy I always turn her Angel Care monitor on. Maybe by her 9 month appointment I will feel comfortable with her sleeping on her tummy and not need it anymore! 

Here are a few pictures from her 6 month photo shoot. I am working on really improving my photography skills with my camera. I have as nice as camera as the photographers I pay for photos so I need to learn how to use it and save myself my money. I used natural light in these pictures and no flash. So when Kayleigh got excited and started waving her toy around it blurred. :-( I will keep practicing to figure out how to minimize that. 

I love her sweet smiles!


Giggling and swinging her toy around...all the while blurring my picture!

She was having so much fun waving her toy around that I was surprised when I got this one. It cracks me up!

Such a gorgeous baby. We are so blessed!
