Six Month Checkup

Elora is 0.5 years old! As usual, we reward this milestone with a doctor's visit. A real marathon visit - an oral medicine and FOUR injections. Elora handled it with grace; a few mild cries, and immediately calm again!

Weight: 14lb 10.5oz (25-50%)
Height: 26" (50-75%)
Head Circumference: 16.6" (25-50%)

Weight is under the trend curve, but apparently this is quite common when babies first become mobile and start burning more calories.

Bedtime. Elora can put herself to sleep at night with minimal intervention, and sometimes even sleep through the night!
Rolling, not just to change position, but as a method of travel to reach a destination.
Grabbing items, and passing off from hand-to-hand.

Rocking. Being able to get up onto one's knees and start rocking back and forth is a sure precursor to crawling.
Sitting up. Elora can, when pulled into a sitting position, can stay sitting while interacting with people or toys.

Feet are so four months. This is far more fun to get in my mouth.
