Dahlia had her 6 month check up yesterday. Here are her stats:
Height - 25 1/4" - 18th percentile
Weight - 13lbs 14oz - 6th percentile
Head Circ - 17 1/4" - 76th percentile.
I used to joke about her "big brain" but now she has to go in for a CT scan because her soft spot feels "full." The doctor just wants to get it checked out now instead of waiting but it stresses me out beyond belief. She has to be sedated for the scan which I HATE the idea of on so many levels...and if they find something wrong? Well, I just can barely stand to think about that.
Otherwise developmentally she's doing great. She's doing all the things she should, she's growing as she should, even though she's a peanut. She babbles, and can sit up for about 1 second at a time, rolls both ways, makes eye contact & tracks things easily, passes objects from hand to hand, puts EVERYTHING in her mouth and is really very very sweet and such a good baby. Great disposition, lots of smiles & laughs. She's a doll and my little buddy for sure.
I can't help but feeling anxious though. *sigh*
In other news she GOBBLED up an entire jar of carrots last night. We couldn't shovel them in fast enough! She also pooped orange this morning. Lovely. At least we know things are moving right along!
