Carrots...Good for the Eyes

We had a great weekend. This is what I found on Sunday afternoon...

Gracie had her 6 month check up Monday May 24th and received her shots!!

I was by myself on this round so I didn't even try to get a picture. She was absolutely happy the entire time and then BAM!!! The shots came!!

She now weighs 12 lbs 9.5 oz.
She is 23 inches long.
Her head is 16 1/4 inches.

She is now in the 5th percentile in weight!! Yea!!! That may seem low to you, but we are just glad she finally made it onto the growth chart!! Her height still has not made it onto the chart.


Our doctor suggested we begin Gracie on some baby food...starting with veggies. So on Monday night we put her chair together and Bryan had the honors. I think I was too nervous to try. She was a little fussy beforehand because of her shots. Plus she never liked the cereal we tried in previous weeks. I just wasn't sure if she would take to baby food.

Initially it was touch and go...



But overall, we feel like she did very well her first time.

julie, loved reading your blog....
i find that it still doesn't get any easier when ur child(ren) gets shots as they get older...as a mommy u still feel for them. one thing i did (and still do) is give them some (baby)tylenol before dr's appt....that helped them. didn't know if someone had already told you this...thanks for sharing Gracie w/the rest of us.
blessings to you and Brian

Oh she is a doll!!! Those big brown eyes are so beautiful!!!I agree with the other comment that I give my boys tylenol about an hour before their appointments.

She is just to precious!!! I remember shots well. I would just sit and hold him. He always got a bad fever the next day so I would check on him a million times a night the night of the shots. I love the food pictures to cute!
