Six Months Old!

Mina turned six months old on Monday! We can hardly believe she is half way to her first birthday.  The time has flown by!
 We have been aware of Mina's petite size but it was confirmed at her check up on Tuesday. 
14 pounds 9 ounces and 24 1/4 inches tall!  That puts her in the 7th percentile for weight and the 21st for height.  Her pediatrician isn't concerned about her growth because it has been pretty steady.
 6 month stats:
Height: 24 1/4 inches
Weight: 14 pounds 9 ounces
Head circumference: 17 inches
Diaper: Size 2 and holding steady!
Clothes: 3 Month but her onesies are getting a little short in the arms.  Most of the 3-6 Month sized clothes drown her!
Sleep: She goes through phases where she sleeps from 8 PM until 5 AM for a feeding and then back until 8 AM.  I like these phases.  She has been waking up more often the past few days, I'm not as thrilled by that.
Noises: She has a variety of cries and she has been babbling more often.  She also screams!
Teeth: Nothing to report!
Skills: Mina has pretty much mastered sitting up on her own. Granted, she can't pull herself into a sitting position yet but she's working on it. She still hates "tummy time" so we think crawling might be a ways away. She loves to "walk" while holding our hands though!

Happy Valentine's Day!!!!

Banshee Baby

Mina found her voice a while ago. This week she discovered she had volume control. I wish this was a video, you'll have to make do with a picture instead.
