6 Month Check Up

Ellie went to the doctor on Wednesday for her check-up. She weighed in at 16 lbs. 4 oz. (50 percentile), measured 25 in. long (20 percentile), and was in the 70 percentile for her head circumference. So it looks like we have a baby that is short but smart since her head's so big! Everything checked out well and she received all her immunizations plus a flu shot! The poor thing had 4 shots in her legs and one oral immunization. She does very well and stops crying as soon as I pick her up. We are so blessed to have such a healthy baby, I don't think we realize that enough.

Here are some extremely cute videos of Ellie:

This first one is me walking in on her while she plays this game with herself. What she does is pulls the blanket over her head and pulls it back down, it's basically playing peek-a-boo with herself! Of course she gets distracted by the camera, but I get some giggles and coos out of her:

This next video is of Ellie eating something she doesn't like. I have so much fun feeding her because she gets the funniest expressions on her face. In this video I had prepared just plain oatmeal and she did not like it! Watch how funny she is:

And a picture I caught of the same thing:
