6-Month Check Up

Kyra got a new starfish baseball hat from her Grandma & Grandpa.
Although she looks a little boyish, it's pretty darn cute :)

Kyra had her 6-month check up this morning, and she's doing great. She was such a good girl at her appointment, and only cried when she was supposed to (right after her shots - poor thing!).

Her new stats are:
Weight: 17 pounds - between the 50th & 75th percentile (up from 14 lbs. 12 oz. at 4 months)
Height: 27 inches - between the 75th & 90th percentile (up from 25 inches at 4 months)
Head Circumference: 42 cm - 25th percentile (up from 40.5 cm at 4 months)

The doctor gave us the go-ahead to start solid foods. So I think we'll head over to Target today to evaluate their yellow and green vegetables (baby foods), then eventually we'll try fruits, and then meats. We'll probably start with some pureed baby food, but also let Kyra "play" with some real foods and get a feel for this whole food thing. We'd like to get her eating mostly real healthy foods, rather than store-bought baby foods, but we'll take it one day at a time.

It should be interesting!
