Head circumference: 16 1/4 inches (10th-25th percentile)
Today we had Madison's 6 month well baby check-up. As always I was nervous about putting her on the scale as she has been a bit too small in the pediatrician's eyes. Today she weighed 13 lbs. 7 oz. (in the 6th percentile.....to be exact). I couldn't get the usual picture of her on the scale because she was attempting to roll herself off the scale. Safety first. LOL. The pediatrician was very please with her weight gain as was I. I am feeling so much better about this appointment than I have her other appointments as the pediatrician reassured me that she is completely content with Madison's size. She is just going to be my LITTLE peanut! And I LOVE that! I would much rather have a petite baby girl than a overweight, gigantic baby girl!
Maddie tolerated her three vaccines like a champ. She barely even let out a whimper and even smiled at the nurse just after her shots. That's my girl!
Madison continues to amaze me every day with her adorable personality, laughter, and development! It's just amazing how fast she is changing. Today she actually sat up unassisted for the longest that she has yet. Usually she will sit upright for a few seconds before toppling forward or to one side or the other. Today she was sitting up all by herself playing for a few minutes! Of course just as I moved to get the camera she looked at me and.....timber! LOL.

Maddie is thoroughly enjoying her solid foods. So far she really has seemed to enjoy the squash, pears, sweet potatoes, and apples that she has had. Tonight we will be trying peas for the first time! Will post again soon with her response to the peas as well as her 6 month well baby checkup. We did have an appointment for a "weight check" last week. Although she is continuing to gain weight - she was 12lbs. 13oz. on January 16th - she still remains my little peanut in the 5th percentile. :-)

After the church service we had the family up for some brunch at our house. It was a great time to have EVERYONE together to celebrate Maddie's baptism and spend some more quality family time together. How did we get so lucky with such an amazing family?!?! WE LOVE YOU ALL. Thank you so very much for all your love and support over the years.

Madison has now perfected her rolling over skills. She is rolling over from her back to her tummy on a regular basis. She began doing this regularly on December 31st, 2010. Way to celebrate a big milestone on the last day of 2010!!! She has yet to master rolling from her tummy to her back so she tends to get frustrated after rolling onto her tummy. We can't believe how quickly time is flying by with her. Hard to believe that the next big milestone will be sitting unaided and then crawling and walking. Is there anyway we can slow time down?
