Amelia said ma-ma-ma-ma for the first time today. Even though it was said when she was crying and wanting to be held....it was exciting to hear. (I had to wait for 15 long months before Lawson mastered saying "ma ma"....better late than never though, right:))
Amelia is sitting up unsupported and loving every second of it. She can even catch herself if she starts to gets unbalanced. She loves reaching for EVERYTHING and then it all goes to the mouth.
Lawson is growing and keeping life fun. Always saying the funniest things. Just a couple of his latest funnies,
"Momma, you kill'n me."
"Daddy, you cracking me up."
"Amelia, It be ok. Don't freak out."
(in response to Eric and I talking....)
Eric says, "I need to leave early to get my car tag, go by the bank,etc....
Ashley says, "I need to leave early for a meeting...."
Lawson says, "I need to go back to bed...."
(Eric and I thought his idea was much better!:)
When Eric asked him who he was voting for, Lawson's response was, "MeMe, Pappy & Smokey (the cat)"
Today was Amelia's 6 month checkup. We got a really good report. She is meeting all of her milestones (i.e. rolling over, sitting up somewhat unassisted, on a consistant schedule with eating and sleeping, etc). As for size, she is over the 95% height and off the charts for weight. I asked the Dr. if there was anything that I needed to adjust in her diet. Though she wasn't overly concerned about her being off the charts, she mentioned that I could cut back on her oz. per bottle if she is eating 2 jars of baby food per meal.
Her current schedule is:
Breakfast - 1-2 jars of baby food
Mid morning - 5 oz bottle
Lunch - 2 jars of baby food
Mid afternoon - 5 oz. bottle
Late afternoon - 5 oz. bottle
Dinner - 2 jars of baby food
Bedtime - 6-7 oz. bottle
So all-in-all - - she is on a good schedule and we got a good report.
As far as Amelia's disposition, she is so sweet and playful. She loves her big brother and loves to watch him play and make funny faces.
She is quite the chatter box these days saying "dadadadadadad".
She is such a joy and blessing to us! We love to watch her grow and to see what each new day will bring.
