6 Months Old

Wow! 6 months have come and gone. I just can't believe that Madi is already half a year old. Before we know it she will be running around the house with her big sister!
Yesterday I took Madi to Dr. Nelms for her 6 month well baby check up and 6 month shots. Madi has no pain tolerance which is complete opposite of Haylee. Haylee won't even flinch when she gets a shot, Madi will hold her breathe for a good 20-30 seconds and let out the loudest scream. Yesterday another nurse in the office poked her head in the door when she began screaming to make sure everything was alright. She said she had never heard a child scream as loud as Madi was. Poor baby!
6 month stats:
Weight- 14 pounds 15 ounces 32nd percentile
Height- 24 1/2 inches 13th percentile
I really thought she weighed more. Madi has little chunky legs and is getting so heavy in her carrier!
Up Close Shot
Look what I can do!
She just started sitting up yesterday by herself.
Haylee wanted a picture with her sister.
I took about 25 pictures and in every one of them, one of the kids were either looking away or had a strange look. Oh well...they are still cuties!
What is Madi doing at 6 months?
  • Sitting up when put in the sitting position.
  • Rolls EVERYWHERE and is really FAST.
  • Drinks a bottle 4 times a day- 6 oz per feeding
  • Eats and likes all solid foods (have not tried a couple of the meats).
  • Takes 2 naps a day, mid-morning and mid-afternoon.
  • Sleeps 12 hours a night.
  • Loves the excersaucer.
  • Adores her big sister, Haylee.
  • Really wants to crawl! She can pull herself to get to a toy or object she wants.
  • Wears size 3 diapers and 6 month clothes.
  • Smiles at anybody who gives her attention.
  • Loves to hear her own "voice".
  • Cries EXTREMELY loud.
  • My hair doesn't stand up in a mohawk anymore!

We love you baby Madi!

Please check out Madison's totsite. I haven't been as good at it as I was with Haylee's, but I am trying to keep it up to date so I can purchase the cd of the totsite after her 1 year party. Be sure to leave a comment in the guest book so that when she is older she can look back and read what everyone has to say.
