6 Month Stats

Judith had her 6 month well baby visit (and shots) today, and I have some updated stats:

Weight: 12 lbs 6 oz (holy crap - that's a pound more than 2 weeks ago!)
Length: 22 1/4"

She's in the 3rd percentile for her actual age in weight, and the 25th percentile for her adjusted age in weight.  She's still not on the chart for length, but she's getting close!

We have to stay on the NeoSure for another 2 1/2 months, until she is 6 months adjusted.  Then we'll more than likely be able to make the switch to regular Similac...and can start saving a bit of money on formula!

We're also going to work on weaning her from the Zantac - her pedi didn't want to increase the dose since she's doing well with the current dosage, and we want to see if she's able to outgrow it so we can stop altogether.  Really, she has been doing quite well with the reflux.  There's usually a day every 1-2 weeks where she's spitting up a bit with every feed, and is in a bit of pain, but that's a great improvement over how it was when she first came home!

In other news, we're on day 3 of bananas, and Judith is really enjoying them!  I have enough left for 1 more day, so I believe we'll move on to a veggie starting Wednesday.

I'm a tad sad: my peony plant didn't bloom very long this year, and it took a while for it to open because of the weather (there were definitely plenty of ants to do their thing, but they took off and hid when it got so cool again a few weeks ago).  Unfortunately I didn't get outside to take pictures this year (fail for me), but the blooms were gorgeous!  My phlox is coming up, and that should start blooming within the next month or so.
