Kayci's 6-Month Checkup

Last week was weird, and this week is starting out that way, too. On Wednesday last week Kayci started running a fever. She was happy and playful still, but was just hot. Actually, she did have some unhappy times, but they were few and far between. Kayci continues to amaze me. Her fever only lasted a couple of days, but she continued to have trouble sleeping through the weekend. She also didin't want to eat anything because she had a sore throat, so she only had formula- and not much of it- for a few days. She finally ate again yesterday and now everything is back to normal.

Kayci has been staying with either Mommy or Daddy during the day for most of last week and the first couple of days this week because her sitter's kids are also alternating being sick. 

Kayci's all better. In fact, she had her 6-month checkup this morning and the doctor said she looked and sounded much better. Also, the Bitty is 17 lbs 9 oz and 26 3/4 inches. She's in the 90% for her age, which means that she's a tall girl!

Kayci is also getting really close to being able to crawl. She can get up on all fours now and rocks back and forth. She scoots around in circles very quickly now and turns at will. In fact, she's so quick that yesterday when I put her on the living room floor to play she turned around and got into her Christmas presents. She opened one- she LOVES the crinkly sound that the tissue paper makes- and wanted nothing to do with the toy inside.

Last week Kayci also got to meet Santa. She thought it was a lot of fun, as you can see by the photo on the photos page.

Getting Ready For Christmas

It's been a rough couple of weeks at work for Daddy, which is why I'm just updating Kayci's site.

Everyone is well again. Kayci is back to her normal happy, loveable self. The Christmas decorations are up and Kayci loves looking at the lights on the tree.

Kayci is getting really good at scooting around in a circle during tummy time. We think she'll be crawling by Christmas- then watch out because she's going to be fast! She already loves to GO!
