we took miss harper to her 6 month well-visit on december 3rd.
even this week i am still wrapping my head around the fact that my baby is half way to turning one year old.
we met with miss elaine, one of the sweet nurse practitioners in the practice. (i have no idea why they call her miss elaine – she’s definitely at an age you would think would no longer constitute “miss”, but whatev. yet i have started calling her that too.)
after weighing the little girl, we saw that she had actually lost weight since her last visit.
yet as we discussed, harper is very alert, responsive, joyful, curious, developing well, and doing things a 6-month old should be doing – all the things that i know would not be there if she were sick or malnourished.
so we talked with miss elaine (who would consult with the doc) about how we could remedy this.
after her shots – during which she was a champ… and cried her eyes out – daddy soothed her.
we started rice cereal this past weekend (which y’all already read up on) so we are hoping that will help the girl pack on a few lbs.
past that, we covet your prayers for harper. we pray that it is not any type of bigger issue or problem.
i hope this post wasn’t too all over the place and disorganized.
well, it was and i know it.
i wanted so badly to write this post better.
i feel a bit scattered and off as i write this about my little girl.
i know she is ok.
i know that she is going to gain weight and that geoff and i will do whatever she needs to make that happen.
nonetheless, we would be so glad to know you are keeping our baby girl in your prayers.
who knows… in two months she might look like a little caucasian sumo wrestler.
just like her mommy once did…
