6 month stats

Cayden is growing! Length: 26.25 inches (70th percentile)

Weight: 15 pounds, 0.5 ounces (32nd percentile)

Head circumference: 43.7 cm (83rd percentile)

She's still a bit shrimpy on the weight, but everything else (especially her big melon) is above average. We went to the doctor today for her 6 month checkup and she had to have 4 shots!She got pretty red in the face and cried hard for only a little bit. She did pretty well, considering. Yesterday we started her on peas, and this morning she had oatmeal for the first time! When she first took a bite, she frowned, but after that she kept wanting more!

When we got home from the doctors office, I put her in bed and later I went up to check on her and she had peeled off one or her bandaids and was playing with it! Pretty funny until she decided to eat it! Cayden is sitting up all by herself now, and can reach and play with things without falling over. She loves her binkie and picks it up and puts it in her mouth a alot. She also discovered my cell phone and loves to play with it. She rolls and scoots backwards and in circles, says "dadadada" a lot (no matter if Bryan is around or not) and has started rolling over when I lay her down to change her diaper (not awesome).
Her new thing is to get her legs stuck in her crib when she is supposed to be napping. This happens like every day. She wiggles into the weirdest situations....on her belly, both legs sticking out of the corner of her crib...stuck and not happy. It's quite disturbing and I think I need to buy a bumper or something because it's getting a bit ridiculous.
