We had your 6 month health check, and all is well. At 6 1/2 months you weighed 6.820kg and were 63cm long. You are only in the 25 percentile for your weight and the 10th for your height. Even though you were the heaviest at birth, the boys were well and truley bigger than you by this age.
One advantage of you being so little is that you are getting lots of wear out of your clothes. Youa re still in mostly size 00. One of my favourite little tops that you wear always reminds me of that song...I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair. the other day I couldnt resisit getting out in the garden and getting this photo... You have heaps of cute clothes in this size, and hear is what you wore for six days (oops, it was going to be a whole week) during this month.I remember the day we came home from hospital with you. I walked out to the car and strapped you into your car seat. You looked SO tiny in there. You are still facing rearwards in your seat, but you fit in there nice and comfortably now. You are no longer in cloth nappies at night. I didnt like the bulk, and prefer the AIO, which are not really designed for night time use. We use a disposable over night - one a day, I can live with that! I still love seeing that cute little toosh in those cute little nappies. I know Id decided on just sticking with my favourite few brands, but how could I resist this gorgeous nappy?You are able to sit for a while now, although you need a bit of propping up with some pillows most of the time. You look so plesaed with yourself sitting amoungst your toys Reaching out to grab what ever takes your fancy. I call you humpty dumpty - because just like Humpty, its inevitable that eventually you will come tumbling down!Your eyes as definaltely going to stay blue. I love how every now and then, I manage to get a photo of you with the light reflecting in just the right way to accentuate the gorgeous colour of your eyes. Isaac just adores "my baby sister". He loves to cuddle you, and make you laugh. He loves when you reach out to touch him as he plays next to you. he loves choosing which colour nappy you will wear, getting you a toy or popping your dummy back in. It is so cute the way he comes and tells me he thinks you need a feed if you start to get a bit whingy. I often find him with his teddy - top pulled up giving him a feed, or laying him down oa blanket, or cradling him in his arms - "just like Jazzy" he tells me. "She my baby sister, I love her, my sister"Hopefully by next months letter, we will finally have some news of your first tooth cutting, or of you rolling around all over the floor, or maybe even of you sleeping the whole night with out waking every four hours or so for a feed. But for now we will just hold you close and cherish everything about you my little princess. All my love Mummy xxxxx
