A dash of hodge and a pinch of podge

*Baby B had her six-month checkup this morning, and it went well despite some crying when the doctor was checking for teeth (none ready to pop anytime soon) and when she got her shots. She didn't quite laugh at the nurse after her shots this time, but she calmed down fairly quickly.

*I had to answer a series of questions at the doctor's office about Baby B's development, most of which I could answer easily ("Can your baby roll over both ways?"), but there were a couple that threw me for a loop. My favorite was, "Can your baby see items that are as small as a crumb?" Holy crap, I have no idea!

*Yes, we sometimes do really call her Baby's not just a blog moniker.

*The dirty diapers have started to change now that we're feeding her real foods. Let's just say the sweet potatoes look exactly the same as they did going in. Everyone warned me that the consistency would change, but people neglected the smell would change, too. Not that it was rose scented before, but ewww.

*Baby B loves the sweet potatoes. She's very eager to take each bite and always seems disappointed that it's gone when she's done.

*Next up: avocados beginning Tuesday night.

*Appointment details:
Height: 25 3/4 inches (50th percentile)
Weight: 14 pounds, 15 ounces (25th to 50th percentile)
Head circumference: 16 5/8 inches (25th to 50th percentile)
