We have been so busy this month we are a little late with our 6 month post. We had Brooklynn's 6 month wellness check on September 3rd. She measured in at 25.5 inches (50% percentile) 15 pounds and 3 ounces (25-50%) and her head was 40.1 cm (10-15%). At the beginning of the month she was rocking back and forth, getting ready to crawl. Now she can scoot herself forward. She can also get her legs straight up to move her feet forward. She was also cutting her first tooth. We could feel it, but were not able to see it. Now, you can see her tooth on the left side sticking out through her gums. Of course, we're too serious to smile and show it...
Brooklynn has been watching Christopher and I eat and reaching out for everything. I had been letting her gum on my apple slices, but one day she actually bit off a piece. I took it away to put it in a teething bag for her. Now, Brooklynn has never really cried other than being wet, hungry or dirty. She was very upset when I took away her apple. I will have Christopher put up the video and you can see for yourself. With the presence of a tooth, we gave Brooklynn some rice cereal to see how she does.
We took another picture with Luc and Ally. Luc had been out of town all Summer, so it had been awhile since all three have been together.
We also got a visit from Brooklynn's cousin during Hurricane Ike. They lost power for 12 days and stayed with us. Brooklynn picked up a few things while Rylen was here such as how to turn on her music cube and how to bang legos together.
She also had a friend in the car that made it easier to fall asleep.
Last Saturday, we hosted a get-together with the other families that were in our home birth group. It had been about 4 months since we had seen each other.
Having her fall asleep next to you never gets old.
