Kayla is 6 months old! Time has gone by fast and she is already 1/2 a year old. She is so much fun at this age. I love her smiles and giggles. I love how she greets me with a big smile. She loves to be held and will nestle her head on my shoulder. I love my little Kayla so very much!
Kayla had her 6 month check up today and she is 13 lbs, 12oz (10% ile) and is 24.75 inches (17% ile). Her weight for length is at the 15% ile. She continues to be little and petite, but she is healthy. She does have reflux and spits up a lot. Her doctor put her on Prevacid so I really hope that medication helps her. She got her 6 month shots and tolerated them well. Of course she cried, but soon forgot after a couple of minutes. She is a happy baby most of the time. She has the cutest laugh and smile. She loves attention. She will meet others with her big contagious smile. Though she does have some stranger anxiety and I have to be near by or she gets upset.
So what has Kayla been up to the past month? Lots of things! After trying rice cereal with her when she turned 5 months, I started introducing stage 1 vegetables. I thought she wouldn't really like them, but I was wrong! She likes all the vegetables, even the peas! I have also started her on fruits and of course she likes them as well. She eats baby food better than the formula though she isn't a big eater in general. She still is not sleeping through the night. She will go 5-6 hours or sometimes less between feedings at night. Her doctor thinks her reflux is keeping her from eating enough during the day and therefore causing her to wake up at night wanting to eat. So I usually get up one time in the middle of the night to feed her. Oh how I wish she would sleep a good 10-12 hours straight. Hopefully one day!

Kayla is active. She wiggles and squirms so much when I hold her. She just can't sit still for a long amount of time. We put her in the doorway jumper for the first time last week and she loved it! She likes to jump just like Haley.
