Averi's 6 month checkup (late, as usual)

As usual, we were late on getting Averi's six month checkup on time! She ended up getting her checkup at seven months, instead of six, but hey, better late than never! As usual, the checkups are always rough on Ave, and Momma, due to the shots. This one was extra hard, as not only did she get four shots, and an oral vaccine, but she also had to have her finger pricked and blood drawn. :-( I had to stand in the corner while David held her because I just can't stand to see her hurt. And yes, I am very aware that I will have to get used to it. I can guarantee you that it won't be easy. Anyways.. We really liked the doctor we saw today. She was very informative and gave us all the answers to questions we asked, and even went above and beyond and gave us answers to things we hadn't even thought to ask. She told us that Averi was a healthy and happy baby, and even complimented me on how well I took care of Averi's skin. She said it was very obvious I took the time every day to make sure her skin was clean and moisturized. That made me feel very proud! :-) Now, onto her stats. My little Bean is 16 lbs 15 oz, and 26 1/2 inches long. She is in the 50th percentile for both height and weight. And is in the 75th percentile for head circumference, which the Doc said was excellent! We have to go back in one month to get the second flu shot, and then she gets a break for a few months. Since we felt so bad for all that Averi had to endure at the doctor, I went and got her a new jumper. She absolutely loves it! 

That's all for now folks! 

-Love to you all-
