On em's half birthday I wanted to do something special or fun. Ben didn't want to do anything at all. Like if he could have spent the day solely existing, like floating on a magic carpet or something I think that would have been his goal. I thought a trip to Joseph Beth would be fun, emmie could play / look at the toys and books, it's free, we get out of the house. Win, win, win.
I couldn't sell poppa on the idea but I did finally talk him into taking us to dinner (which was also free with a gift card)! Woot woot! Emmie needed to fall asleep half way through dinner but instead screamed her face off. Maybe she would have rather gone to the train table? After fighting sleep we finally just got her out to play with us which she enjoyed quite a bit more! Your fun little personality makes all of our outings pretty amazing. We loved celebrating you even if a half birthday isn't technically a "real birthday" as dad would say. Our server thought it was worth celebrating because when he brought out dessert he brought an extra spoon for you "just incase you wanted a bite." He was serious btw. I'm not about to feed my 6 month old a hot fudge brownie a la mode mister but that was a very sweet thought.
Today we had our 6 month check and it went well. It never fails that her nap falls at whatever time her appointment is so she was a little fussy to start but I still think she handled it like a champ.
She got three more shots and was perfectly normal after we got back home today, no extra whining or anything. Her growth has slowed down a bit. She now is 27 inches tall (86 percentile) and weighs 17 pounds 12 oz. (81 percentile). She has barely gained a full pound in the last two months. Evening out they say. She's following along with all the milestones she should be meeting which is exciting and also a relief in a way.
you are soooo much fun now. i can't wait to write your "6 month post" because i have so much to say! i'll hurry so i don't forget all the goodness.
