6 Month Appointment

I made the doctor see us a week earlier than our original appointment (which was three weeks late anyways) because there were lots of questions I wanted to ask.. mostly having to do with my child's lack of daytime sleep - which he had not answer for! Well, she's still growing, but not as fast. Blythe now weighs 17lbs 4 oz (76th percentile) and is 26.5 inches long (95th percentile!!!). She is one long baby! The chart could be a little off though since our appointments are running behind. She is eating a whole lot though so I'm not surprised at her growth at all.

She is finally sleeping through the night thanks to her daddy's gentle nudge. Against my will, we (as in BRIAN) used the Ferber method to train her to sleep at night and it worked quickly. It wasn't easy, but it sure is nice to get a decent amount of sleep at night. My body has had a hard time adjusting and I still wake up from time to time. I don't think it knows what to do with so many hours to sleep. Also, Blythe is going down at 7pm instead of 9 so we finally have some quiet in the evenings which is so needed!

Now, this is what we see when we go into her room in the morning... How can you not smile at this face?!?!
