Happy 1/2 Birthday
Ella is six months old today. She's just as wonderful as the day she was born! She's so smiley, eats any kind of baby food I give her, and is sitting up pretty well now. She love to bounce around in her jumper (or fall asleep in it),
and she can even swing on the playset. And although she puts everything into her mouth, she is NOT teething. Despite what everyone tries to tell me as soon as they see her chewing on a toy, a key, a paper towel, her pediatrician confirmed that she is nowhere near getting any teeth.
Yesterday, at her appointment, she measured 26", and weighed 14 pounds, 11 ounces. Her doctor said she was of average height, petite weight and had a big head. She received 2 immunizations on her legs. And although she cried, it wasn't for long. We left the office with two circus band-aids on her legs. Sometime throughout the day, both of the band aids fell off. No big deal, she wasn't bleeding or anything. There wasn't any need for them anymore. I even forgot about them, until later on that evening.
Ella was a little fussy and sleepy after receiving her shots. But she dutifully took her naps, consumed some bottles, ate some dinner, etc. In the evening, I laid her down in front of me on a chaise we have in our living room to change her diaper and put on her pjs. At the angle I was sitting, I could see directly into her mouth. And when she opened it to smile, I saw something on the roof of her mouth. I thought it was some piece of paper she must've found, or a piece of paper towel from when I cleaned the food off her face from dinner. I immediately pulled it out and discovered the BAND-AID from earlier that day.
She had spent the whole day...sleeping, playing, drinking, eating...with a band aid stuck to the roof of her mouth!!!!
