Paediatrician's Appointment

First off.... did you know that's how you spell Paediatrician?? Who threw that a in there? Strange.

Now that that's out of the way, Gracie had an appointment with hers on Wednesday and we were told she's perfect. Surprise, surprise.

She weighed in at 14 pounds, 12 ounces and is 25 inches tall now. That puts her in the 50th percentile for height and weight, but her head was in the 75th percentile. Smartie needs a big head for all that brain! :)

The doc gave us the go ahead to feed her solids so I tried out some rice cereal this morning and she did great! Ate lots and neither of us were too messy afterwards.

We knew she was getting ready because she stops whatever she's doing and watches if you eat in front of her. Plus, she's been practicing on everything that comes near her:

her blanket,

her frog,

her giraffe,

another blankie or her peacock, whichever gets to her mouth first.

So, we practiced hanging out in the high chair a few nights ago,

and then, this morning, she actually got to eat cereal, in her chair!
