6 month checkup

On Wednesday, we had Kathryn's 6 month checkup (a few weeks late, but it was convenient since I had the day off from work). Unfortunately, it didn't work out as planned because our doctor had to cancel, however, we were still able to get in because Kathryn was still coughing.

Waiting for the doctor...
As we suspected, she has a plain-old cold. She's still coughing occasionally and sounds congested in her chest, but all in all, she's doing well.

6 (and a half) month stats:

Weight: 18.5 lb (75th percentile). After 6 months of being off the charts, she has leveled out for a bit :)

Height: 27 1/4 inches (85th percentile).

Back at home playing in the playpen and making silly faces
Wednesday was also a big day because K tried out "real food" for the first time. I pureed her some fresh carrots...and it was a success! (more to come at a later date about homemade baby food!).
Another first was using her high-chair! It was most definitely needed because she's now able to get herself out of her Bumbo if she wanted to and it's an easier clean-up for us with her in a confined space :)

  1. Yay for homemade baby food! My favorite website and book for hm baby food are: and Baby Love. You may have already heard of them. And yes, the highchair is a life-saver (literally!). We just started using the highchair (could've used it a lot sooner, though!). Happy 6 months, Katie! Where has the time gone?
