6 Month Well-Baby Visit

Every pediatrician visit shows new changes in Kate. It's a single day each month where Ken and I can take a good look at how much Kate has developed that month and since birth. At this visit Kate was very interested in pulling and crinkling the sanitary paper on the examination table, as well as studying the plastic strap that holds the paper down.

Following her immunization shots -- DTP/DTaP/DT/Td and Hib -- Kate of course cried; but as soon as Ken picked her up, she was calm. I think it also helped that I started singing Kate's favorite new song The Itsy Bitsy Spider. I really hit jackpot when I found out that song always makes her smile. It's great for when she gets fussy in the car, while we're out and about or before naptime. I'm sure a few onlookers have probably been entertained by my performance as well, but I doubt it'll win me American Idol.

Kate's growing has slowed down a bit. This month she weighed in at 15 lbs and 26-1/2 inches. She doesn't have another well-baby visit until July, so it'll be interesting to see how much she grows between now and then.

Kate is surely a happy baby. It is wonderful to watch her development. She shines with that cute personality. You can see it in her sweet smile. Posted by: Nana Carol at April 17, 2004 07:24 AM
