6 Month Appointment

Yesterday Blythe has her 6 month appointment. She weighed 16 pounds 6 ounces and was 26.5 inches long. Despite the healthy thunder thighs (see picture below) she is now only in the 50th percentile for weight and still in the 75th percentile for height. She had to have shots again which of course weren't fun, but it was all over with in a matter of minutes.

Last night we went to the LLLI meeting and Blythe didn't seem to be feeling the effects of the shots. I am currenlty battaling a cold so I was looking forward to getting home and going to bed. Blythe had other plans.... Ususally she nurses to sleep, but she nursed and was WIDE awake and ready to party. Luckily my mom is in town and stayed up with our little party animal until 10:30pm when she decided Blythe needed to party herself to sleep. When I woke up at 5am to feed Blythe I realized that I had totally dropped the ball last night. I guess I thought I would go lay down for a little while and then Blythe would get fussy and want to nurse before going to bed, but I never heard her and my mom said she was all "happy pappy."


  1. thank God for moms! sounds like you needed some r&r. hope you're feeling better xxx

  2. I do need some r&r and I am NOT feeling any better. I was really hoping that I would be on the upside by today and I feel like today might be the worse :(. As long as Blythe doesn't get it I will be o.k. I just don't want my baby to be sick in Colorado!

  3. woah, I didn't see til now that you responded to my comment. Sounds like baby made it to CO without catching your cold. Did you end up feeling well enough to ski? by the way, LOVE the picture of the month!! good to see Blythe enjoying PARADISE!! takes after her mom I guess ;)
