First Tooth!

Hannah had a bit of a rough night last night, but when I finally got her up this morning I discoverd why. Her first tooth finally broke through! It's hard to see and mostly looks just like a little slit with a grain of sand peeking through, but it is oh so sharp. She bit me with it several times today just to prove to me how sharp it was!

Hannah also had her 6 month well baby visit today and Kyle surpised me by being able to come after all. I was so happy to not have to deal with the shots by myself. Since I know you are just dying to find out I'll tell you her latest measurements. She was 18 lbs 12 oz and 28 inches long. As far as percentiles go, she's in about the 96th percentile for weight, and about the 98th for height. She really slowed down a bit on the length this time and was actually on the growth chart this time! Her head circumference was in the 98th percentile as well, but I can't remember the exact measurement and I forgot to write it down. She got all of her shots today including her flu shot which was an optional vaccine we decided to go ahead and have done. We learned that the next check-up at 9 months she won't have to have any shots! I'm very excited about that. Of course Hannah screamed and screamed after her shots, but luckily I remembered to give her Tylenol before her appointment this time so she really hasn't be as affected by it long term this time as in the past. We found out that Hannah is allowed to start trying very soft finger foods that disolve in her mouth like tiny pieces of bread or veggie puffs as soon as we think she's ready. Tonight she tries squash for the first time so we will probably hold off on the finger foods for just a bit, but we are both very excited for her to get to try them.

Well, that's all the big news for today. I can't wait to see what that tooth looks like tomorrow and I'll try to get a picture of it as soon as it's a bit more visible and Hannah is willing to cooperate for a picture!

Sarah finally gave me a minute to catch up on some of Hannah's posts. I can't believe she is 6 months old already! It seems like you were just bringing her home. I think she is getting more adorable each time you post new photos of her.
