Six Months Old and Getting....small?

Miss Chloe recently celebrated her 1/2 birthday. It's hard to believe that 6 months' time has already passed. Gone are the days of newborness, screaming in the car, and projectile vomitting.

Chloe is now a really relaxed and chill baby. She does such a good job riding in the car now that we often wonder a). is she with us / did we remember to put her in the car and b). is she feeling okay, breathing, etc. She shrieks in excitement and when she's getting peeved and has recently discovered her tongue, which is almost always wagging around outside of her mouth. She's found her feet, but she doesn't play with them much. Chloe is a drooling machine, although baby has no teeth yet. One would think she would get some any day now by looking at the buckets of slobber soaking her bibs, toys, and hands. She loves to watch Camdyn and Cam loves to hold her. They are the cutest thing together.

Chloe weighed in at 13 lbs. 13 oz at her well visit on Tuesday. This places her in the 15th percentile for weight. At the 4 mo. visit she was in the 50th percentile. I guess we have a case of the incredibly shrinking baby. Her doc assured us that she is perfect, and is in the normal range and that the downshift in her weight ranking is not cause for concern. We can start rice cereal whenever we want, but he warned that we should hold off on fruits for awhile. Chloe still gets all the nutrients she needs from me! On the height chart, Chloe measures 25 1/4 inches and is in the 25th percentile. This also is a shift from the 50th, guess baby girl is just going to be more on the petite side. She's my little itty bitty.

Happy 1/2 Birthday Chloe Belle!
