What a (little) champ

So Cassidy turned 6 months Friday. She had her appointment yesterday and was awesome. She is 26 1/2 inches long (75th percentile)and weighed in at 14lbs 12 oz, which is less than what she weighed when we went in 3 weeks ago. (She slipped from the 50th to the 25th percentile for weight, oh well that just means she won't grow out of her clothes quite as fast) She still has the "little" head, only 25th percentile but she looks so proportioned. SO DANG CUTE!!!! And those blue eyes... photos to come

She also slept through the night for the first time last night, from 715 to 630 then ate and fell back asleep till 830. What a great feeling. I actually woke up at 430 because my body is so used to feeding her 2-3 times at night. Joe woke up too and as we were going back to sleep we commented on how she hadn't gotten up yet and then... she stirred but went right back to sleep. Crossing the fingers it continues.

Shylas head size was in the 10th percentile for almost a year but I wouldn't worry. The charts are for "average growth" and every child is different.

That's great she's sleeping through the night, even if just for 1 night, it's a start. I'm sure more often now she'll learn she can have breakfast in the morning, and doesn't have do have it all night :) Good luck!
