.kaiya eats.

Today was little miss Kaiya's 6 month well baby check-up with Dr. Carolan.  She did excellent at the appointment.  She even gave Dr. Carolan a few smiles when he was doing his little leg/hip dance with her while singing his usual song (da dum da dum....). Kaiya weighed 16 lbs. 5 oz. and was 24 inches long.  Dr. Carolan said she's consistent on her growth, staying in the 50th percentile for weight, 25th percentile for head size, and 10th percentile for height (oh boy!).  We went over her solid food feeding schedule, got a clean bill of health, and a prescription for vitamins (which mommy and daddy forgot to pick up due to the excitement of buying her Rice Cereal!).  She had the oral vaccine and two shots again.  However, she only cried two whimpers when Aunty Flo (the nurse) gave her the shots.  Such a big girl!  Her next well baby appointment won't be for another 3 months, when she turns 9 months old!!!

When we got home, we couldn't wait to let her have her first taste of rice cereal.  She LOVED it and couldn't get enough of it.  She did well with the spoon, too.  She even wanted to try feeding herself, but it was already a mess when mommy was doing it, so we just let her chew on the spoon a bit.  Daddy also took a video, but I'll have to upload that later.  In the meantime...check her out...EATING!!!

Getting ready to eat.
I'm so hungry...I can eat this bib!
Are you really gonna feed me...or are you just teasing again?!
Give me MORE!!!
I can't reach it if it's all the way over there.
Sooo glad I can finally ditch the milk only diet.
Mmmmm, thank you so much mommy and daddy.
