Unsolicited Baby Update

...in case anyone was wondering.

We just had Plan C's six-month checkup and immunizations. Here's the status:
  • She's 14 pounds, 10 ounces. That puts her in the 25th percentile for weight.
  • She's 27 inches long. That puts her in the NINETY-FRICKIN'-FIFTH percentile for height.
  • She's now immunized against various bad baby diseases. Side note: people who don't get their babies immunized are morons.
  • She rolls around, grabs toys without having to look directly at them anymore, shakes rattles, and carries on extensive conversations in baby-squawk language.
  • She sits up as long as someone or something is supporting her back.
  • She starts on solid foods tomorrow - brown rice baby cereal stuff, later followed by sweet potatoes, pears, and avocados.
  • She is a gorgeous, sweet, extremely "good" kid in public. She loves people and loves looking at stuff.
  • She gets extremely bored with us when we're just hanging out at home. B and I have to keep improvising to keep her entertained. We take lots of walks and do a lot of sweet dance moves to disco beats to keep her entertained.
  • She's still a good, albeit not great, sleeper. Sometimes she likes to wake up for an hour or so in the middle of the night. Sometimes she likes to not nap all day. But, mostly, she's good about it.
In sum, all's well in the tiny weird world of the Baby Croc.

I agree with you about the baby immunizations thing save one- the varicella (Chicken Pox) vaccination comes in two flavors, the one year old version, and the 3 or 4 year-old-prior-to-entering-school-version. I waited to get L's until she was 4 because there's some pretty strong stuff in there for a 1 year old. Just sayin'.

She's growing fast! So great to hear the latest about your babbler.

How cool! Thanks for the update.

Our little one is in the same brackets for height and weight, but I have no idea where the height came from (certainly not me). Maybe it came with the vaccines she got in the hospital....
