Right after returning from Alabama, we had Sadie's 6 month doctor's appointment. Compared to Callie, we think Sadie is HUGE. Unlike her sister, she has fat rolls and dimples in all the right places. Sadie is perfectly proportional but the doctor thinks she is going to be petite. Sadie weighed 14 pounds 9.2 ounces which is in the 17th percentile. She was 24 3/4" tall which is in the 13th percentile. Others might consider Sadie small, but we think of her as "pleasantly plump." As far as development goes, everything seems right on track with the little girl.
Now that I am writing this, Sadie just turned 7 months old. She is still our laid back, happy little friend. She loves to smile and laugh. She is a good little sitter and even though she is not crawling, she is quite mobile. I remember months of months of Callie sitting in the same place, but not Sadie. She will roll and squirm and move until she finds what she wants. It is really fun to watch.
We have also started solid foods with Sadie. I held off as long as possible but when she started waking up in the middle of the night hungry, I realized she needed something besides milk. I think since we waited later before starting solid foods, she had time to watch us eat. It was amazing how quickly she took to eating and can do so without making a huge mess. We are still in the experimental stage, but we haven't found anything she does not like. Tonight we fed her apple and sweet potato yogurt and that might be her most favorite food to date. She ate the entire 4 ounce containter and wanted more. It is really fun to feed a child who enjoys eating.
