6 Month Appointment

I took Ava yesterday for her 6 month "Well Baby" check-up and shots. Among babies her age, she is in the 25th percentile for height (25.5 inches) and in the 5th percentile for weight (14.1 lbs). The doctor said he is not worried about her and developmentally she looks great, but he'd like to see her gain some weight. So I'm supposed to increase the breastfeeding and/or supplement with formula and we'll go back in a month for a weight check. She got two shots, which she ScReAmEd about, and we were good to go. Ava is a pretty resilient little girl. When she gets hurt or upset she calms down pretty quickly and easily. I guess she was pretty tired after that eventful morning cuz in the afternoon she napped from about 12:30-4:30! Then last night she went to bed at about 10:15 and didn't wake up (or at least wake me up) until about 8:15 this morning. I am LOVING getting some good sleep too. :)
This morning we took the pups for a walk. BB and Pancake are still doing great with Ava. Pancake is always nearby, like a little furry mama. BB keeps her distance a little more, but she's fine with her too. Ava loves going for walks, just riding in the stroller and looking at everything. She's usually pretty sleepy (or asleep) by the end from so much looking around and the lulling motion of traveling.
That's it for now. I'll try to keep the videos coming. I know that's everyone's favorite part of the blogs. :)
