Happy St. Patty's Day & Jayna stats

Jayna had her "6 month" appointment on Friday, though she turned 7 months today. Everything is looking really good and she's developing as expected. They said she's on the low end of milk consumption and sleep, but still doing fine. That's right, my child still won't nap, but luckily she makes up for it at night. Her measurements were as follows:

  • Height 25.75" (30th percentile)
  • Weight 14 lb 6 oz (8.6th percentile)
  • Head circumference 42.5 cm (36th percentile)
There ya go... She's long and skinny with a larger head. Just like her daddy... Haha! The nurse said, "How can you have such a skinny baby with such huge cheeks?!" Hehe! She should have added "cute" to that! Funny enough, I don't realize how big they are, but they seem to be the number one thing people talk about... I recall people talking about my cheeks too. Sadly, mine never went away... They're not so cute anymore.
At 7 months, Jayna's personality and energy are shining through. I'm a little concerned when she becomes mobile because her energy doesn't end, which is why she rarely naps. New things include:
  • Two bottom teeth are completely through now... and one of them is crooked. Haha! So cute!
  • She does "riverdance" all the time. Her upper body is completely stiff while lying on the floor while her legs are going a million miles a minute. Once her legs are kicking, she's totally winded and sounds like she's running a marathon. It makes me laugh.
  • She loves to grab her feet and roll all around the floor.
  • She now loves her oatmeal, but hates her peas-pears-parsnips combo. We're trying new things :). She's also very independent and likes to "feed herself". Let's just say most of her food ends up in her hands and down her front.
  • She is extremely extroverted and no longer entertains herself in the living room while I teach... She has to be in the studio with us, singing along. (I'll have to figure something out for this... she sings louder than my students!)
  • She's getting more and more dark hair in every day. (The only thing she got from me.)
  • She will turn herself in a clockwise motion if left on her belly, which she still hates.
  • She continues to win the hearts of all of my students (yes, including the boys) and others she comes in contact with. She's a total ham and charms her way through life.
We got her this cute little St. Patty's Day outfit for her 7 month "bday". She looks pretty darn cute! I love that this outfit shows off her one little fat roll on her legs. Hehe!
