It really feels like these monthly updates come around way too quickly. 6 months ago our sweet little Lucy was born. Oh how we love her and are so glad to have her in our family!! I told the doctor today that she is not sleeping through the night on a regular basis--he said to stop feeding her in the middle of the night when she wakes-up. He said after a few nights of this she should realize it is no longer meal time at 3:00AM and should start sleeping through the night. I really hope so!!! I am ready to get a full night's sleep! (Knowing that she is my last one has made it a little easier to make it through those 3 o'clock feedings). Another problem during the night has been that she has started rolling over and once she is on her tummy she does not know how to get back to her back. Sometimes when I get upstairs to feed her, she is on her tummy and she is not happy!
Her growth is right on track. She weighed 16 pounds 2 ounces today. 26 1/2 inches long and her head is 17 inches around. She did great for the doctor today, but she was super sad after getting her shots! Hopefully she will sleep OK tonight. Here are a few pictures from today. I could not get her to smile for the camera and she was slobbering a lot!
this was her favorite face to make today during her photo shoot:
