6 Months, nearly 7 Months Old!

Now that Penny is nearly 7 months old, I better give her 6 months report!

Half a year has passed since little Penny completed our family.  She is a sweet, vibrant, and active girl starting to show a little of her own personality...she seems to me a touch on the ornery side...  Just in the last week, Penny has accomplished a lot!  She is now officially eating solid food, sitting up, and crawling!  It was an amazing transformation. Penny had been getting up on all fours and trying to crawl and pushing herself half way up to sitting for a few weeks now, but then she decided she was ready for it all!  On Monday she sat herself up, on Thursday she crawled, now today (Friday) she is crawling all over the place.  She is now so much more content to play by herself, which is a huge help.

Penny went in for her 6-month well baby check up and shots today. She measured in at 17 lbs, 4 oz, and is 17 and 3/4 inches long...90th percentile!!!  She received two shots and only cried a little.  Also, while we were waiting at the doctor's office, I spied something else different about her...another tooth!  We expected the top two teeth to come in next, because is the order the are "supposed" to come in. NOPE!  She now has the first right bottom tooth!

So what we will be looking forward to in the next few weeks is more teeth, the trying and accepting of more foods, and pulling up on furniture.  Its going to be busy!
