Aria 6 Month Checkup

She's already six months old. I can't believe it. I'm in denial. We went in for her six month well baby checkup this morning. She is happy and healthy. Here are her stats:

Age: 6 months
Date: 1/19/2010
Length: 26 3/4 in (90%)
Weight: 18 lbs 5 oz (90%)
Head Circ: 41.6 cm (25%)

She received her vaccinations, including the seasonal flu and H1N1. The doc said that he has seen an uptick in colds and RSV, so we will be staying home from group gatherings for another little while. She has lost her voice a few times these last couple of months (it makes her cry sound really sad) so I talked to him about that. I thought it might have something to do with all the smog we have had this year. The doc said that it might be due to acid reflux irritating her voice box? Good news there is that she is starting to sit up more and will eventually spend a lot more time vertical which will help the situation. It doesn't seem to bother her so it's really nothing to worry about.

Milestones for this visit:

  • We can sit up for a good bit of time before toppling over.
  • Drooling, not so much a milestone as a fact of life.
  • Gets seriously insulted when you don't give her some of the food you are eating.
  • Moves toys from hand to hand, all with the singular goal of getting whatever she's holding into her mouth.
  • Babbles, laughs and does this weird screechy thing.
  • Just happy to be a part of the action.


  1. Look at the joy in her eyes!

  2. I agree! Those big blue eyes! Times goes by. When you only get hair compliments from women who are: 1-expressing their sort-of-desire to stop coloring, or 2-have the same white hair, it's sad. Oh well-look at the next generation. Irreplaceable!
