6 Months

Okay, so she's gynormous. We really don't feed her pure butter, though she does eat her cereal like I'm rationing her food and she doesn't trust me to feed her regularly. I have to put her in 12-month clothes because her arms are too big for smaller sizes. She shares diapers with Erik. In fact, she's only about 7 pounds lighter than Erik. For her 6-month appointment, she weighed just over 20 pounds. As big as Taylor was, he wasn't even that heavy at 6 months. I ended up having to hold her almost the entire time at church yesterday (instead of finding some unsuspecting victim to pawn her off on), and my arms are totally sore today.

But really, is she not the cutest thing you've ever seen?

She IS so adorable and just getting cuter with time! Sorry about her pokes by the way... GRR to immunization rules! The nurse said she couldn't get her 3rd Hep B til she was 6m, but really the rule is 8 weeks between the 2nd and 3rd one, which she hadn't quite reached anyway. So sorry though, that's frustrating! Usually it's only the 4yo shots that have to be when the kid is at least 4yo otherwise kindergarten won't count them! I complained about all this to Kent, but just in case he didn't share, now you know all the background of your extra trip back for pokes another day!

You are so funny- I was cracking up over your description of feeding her! She is beautiful just like you! I love her hair bow! I would consider making Afton one, but she rips our any headband I put on her :/

She is adorable!! Melanie doesn't look like she weighs that much. I saw pictures of Taylor! Those rolls were amazing! Can't wait to meet her.

It is just too bad those rolls are not as cute on adults. I would be adorable too!
