Six Month Well Visit

Our sweet Ellie Belle had her six month checkup today! She got a great report and is doing everything she should be doing. She is meeting all her developmental milestones and is turning into such a big girl! Dr. Washburn was very pleased with everything and told us she was perfect and that we're doing a great job...it's nice to have a little affirmation now and then!

Ellison got four vaccines today, three shots and one oral. She was so brave!
Y'all...she didn't cry. Seriously. She didn't even flinch for the first two. The third one apparently burns when it's injected, and we did get a couple crocodile tears and a good red faced yell, but literally 5 seconds later she was totally composed and over it. We are super proud of our brave girl!

We got the go ahead to try some new foods...puffs and yogurt melts. Dr. Washburn said they are really great for helping develop some more fine motor skills...using a pincer grasp instead of raking food towards her. We may also try to introduce a sippy cup in the next month or so and will start trying to phase out one daytime bottle and replace it with a fruit or veggie.

Ellison is a growing girl! Thanks to solid foods, E's stats are...

Height: 25.5 inches (30th percentile)
Weight: 17 lbs 3 oz (67th percentile)
Head Circumference: 42 cm (26th percentile)
