Peanut is 6 months old!

Little Miss Julia
Weight: 12.1 pounds
Length: 25.1 inches long
Head Circumference: 16 inches
Diapers: Size 1
Clothes: 0-3 and 3 month. (Maybe some day she'll grow into the bigger stuff...she's got so many cute clothes waiting for her to wear!)

So at just barely over 12 pounds our princess is now in the 0 percentile for weight. We do supplement her either with formula or pumped milk once or twice a day.  We're hoping that helps her gain a little more.  The doctor seems to think it's a calorie issue for why she's not gaining. She's very distracted when she's nursing which doesn't help her. We've started solids and she is still working on getting used to them. She loves Mum Mum rice crackers like her brother did. I've made her solids and given her jarred baby food. Both she's tried and eats a little bit, but she's not as into the solids. I am not pushing it, because I think she's maybe just not quite ready.
She loves to rock and bounce. She makes lots of noises and squeals LOUDLY! I think she's going to be crawling sooner then later. She's almost sitting up on her own. Her favorite toys are Sophie the giraffe and anything else she can grab onto.  She's still a doll and continues to be loved by everyone who gets their hands on her.
