I already had a 6 month post for Julianna ... but this one is just an update on her 6 month check-up with the pediatrician on Monday.
She got her vaccinations and the usual crying ensued... then she was fine after a couple minutes of mommy & daddy snuggling her. It gets easier every time. The doctor said she is doing just fine all around! She gave us some advice on what to have her eat now & how much... and how Julianna will start lowering her formula intake on her own as she eats more solids.
The Dr. also told us we should get the hearing test done that the Hospital contacted us about. The hospital told us since Julianna was in the NICU, they are required (by the state) to tell us that she should get a hearing test done. So now I have to schedule that with the hospital. It's just a precautionary thing, and all NICU babies get that notification at 6 months.
Julianna is 16.4 lbs and 26 inches long. She is in the 60th% for weight, and 85th% for height if you believe all that stuff. It's just numbers... and of course it depends on which nurse measures her height & how much she stretched her out LOL.
While we were waiting for the Dr. to come into the room, Julianna & Daddy sat on the exam table. Julianna was having a field day with the paper that covers the table.
Oh it was too funny. She was making us crack up - she was crunching & shredding the paper, trying to get it ALL in her mouth ... She was squealing & smacking her hands down on it with pure excitement. We decided that she will absolutely love the tissue paper at Christmas time! Heck with the gifts... bring on the tissue paper!!
