One-half of a year already!

Today was Hannah Mai's 6 month check up. To think, 6 months have already flown by. Wow! Well, for all of you who are dying to know the latest, here's the scoop on her visit.

Hannah is now weighing in at a whopping 15lbs and 5 oz. She feels 20 to me! She's 26 inches long. Let me reword that. My daughter is 2 feet and 2 inches tall. Whoa. Her height and weight are very average for her age: both around the 50th percentile. Her precious little big noggin is 95% bigger than all other kids her age. My sweet girl must have a big ol' brain.

She's responding beautifully to her physical therapy. She still has a ways to go but she really is doing better. This week she FINALLY started rolling from back to front regularly. That was a problem because of her lack of neck strength. She's sitting very well (even by herself). Her head is not as flat as it was now that she's moving around and the doc said she will not need a helmet! ;) Yay!

Some other random notes are as follows. Hannah has sensitive skin. You may have noticed her rosy red cheeks or occasional rashes. However, nothing is required to treat it. She still hates her formula but it makes her feel much better. She has started eating solids. So far, she enjoys bananas but does not like her (soy-free) rice cereal. As far as we know, her allergies (dairy and soy) remain but will likely dissipate in the future. We're still working on getting her to sleep through the night but I trust the Lord will help her there. :)

Overall, I think that's a good summary of where she is. My beautiful baby girl is growing up fast. It's hard to believe how big she is. I pray God leads us as Christian parents and role models in her life.

Until next time...
