6 Month Milestone 5: 6 Month Check Up

According to the pediatrician's chart Magnolia continues to hover around the 92nd percentile, weighing 18 lbs 7 oz and 27 inches long. It was easier to weigh her at this check up since she could sit by herself on the scale. But that was all that was easier. While waiting for the doctor she ripped up the tissue paper covering the exam table. The nurse kindly replaced the paper and, lucky for me, the doctor arrived shortly after that. All of the pediatrician instruments were extremely interesting to Magnolia. After she surprised Dr. Rosquist by crawling across the exam table to grab her stethoscope we changed strategies. Instead of using the exam table Dr. Rosquist guided me through various holding positions to restrain our squirmy, curious little girl.

Overall, Magnolia Grace is happy, healthy and thriving.
