Kayler's 6 month Doctor Visit

Kayler's 6 month check-up when great! She weighs 16 lbs 1 oz (50%) and 25 inches in length (25%). She also got her 6 month shots and her flu shot. She was just a big girl, only cried for a few seconds and then was all smiles.

Dr. Orr said that she is finally getting better with he chest cold after 6 1/2 weeks. They are taking her off the Prednizone today and she will still need breathing treatments of pulmicort through the winter. The last two nights she slept through the night and we are so happy for that. We think she must be feeling much better.

The doctor said to start her on stage 2 babyfood after she is finished with the stage 1 we have. We are also to start her on the dissolving cereal treats that Gerber makes so she get's familiar with feeding herself. Another new step is to introduce the sippy cup. The doctor said she may just play with it, but she has 6 months of practice until she needs to know all the in's and out's of the sippy cup. :-) We are so proud of our little girl and can't believe she is growing up so fast.
