Wow, it's been awhile. Hope you all are doing well. We are doing great here! I am reminded daily how blessed we are to have Annelise in our lives. She's touched so many people, even people we don't know. She is truly a miracle.
So, Annelise is now 6 months old, almost 7 months. I put her 5 month and 6 month pictures below. What a cutie pie, right?!?
I had to include that 6 month old picture, even though you can't read the sign. It's just a perfect representation of Annelise at 6 months. She puts everything in her mouth, wants to grab everything. And rolling side to side.
Here's the one where you can read the sign. There's a typo though - should say 11 lb. 4 oz. NOT 12 lb. 4 oz. Oops!
We took 6 month pictures with my sister Denise again, and they turned out gorgeous. My favorite is below....
Look at that drool! :-)
Annelise had a great check up at CHOP with Dr. Flake this past week. She is 12 lbs. 1.5 oz and 23.5 inches tall. She's had 3 shots of Synagis (the RSV vaccine) so far and her first flu shot! We get the next (and last) flu shot the beginning of March.
Annelise is an official roller! She rolled from belly to back last Sunday (Jan 29th) for the first time. She's done it at least once a day since then! Friday night she rolled from back to belly to back again. She couldn't make up her mind. I can't wait to tell Kathleen (her physical therapist) on Tuesday morning. She'll be just as proud as we are!
I spent a day last week changing out Annelise's clothes. She now fits into 3-6 month and some 6 month clothes.
Annelise turned 6 months old on a Sunday. Monday afternoon she tried rice cereal for the first time. This was her reaction....
But then she started having fun with it!
And this continues almost every day. My sweet girl loves cereal time. I'm trying to make it as fun as possible for her so eating is a positive experience. So far so good. We're sticking with rice cereal right now until she starts to consume more of it and dribbles less.
Well, we have to say goodbye for now. However, I promise to update again soon. Annelise is growing by leaps and bounds these days. Here are some recent photos!
