26 weeks + a Checkup and a New Trick!

Posted by Emily , Thursday, July 11, 2013 8:59 PM


Sage turned 26 weeks old on Sunday, and we had our 6 month checkup on Wednesday.  In the doctor's words, she is "perfect!"  I have been worrying about her blocked tear duct and have asked about it at every appointment, but the doctor assures me it's nothing to worry about for now.  Sage really hammed it up for the doctor, laughing, smiling and babbling away.  She was so cute.  Her personality has really started to come out in the past week or so, and she is making some new sounds.  She has also started blinking and winking every time I try to take a picture of her, because my camera has this red light that comes on before it clicks.  So now we have a lot of pictures like this:
Wish I would've bought a camera that takes the picture faster.  She has way too much time to react.

She is 25.25 inches long (50th percentile), 16 lbs. 12 oz. (80th percentile), and her head is 43.5 cm (80th percentile).  I can't believe she's grown half a foot since she was born!  Crazy.  She got her six-month shots and was super tough.  She cried, but very briefly.  She's been very tired and a little fussy ever since, though.  Also running a little fever. 

Matt and I celebrated our second wedding anniversary on Tuesday.  We took Sage to daycare and went out to lunch and to a movie.  Then we went to our friend's pool for a couple of hours.  We picked Sage up afterwards and went home to grill steaks.  I made a whiskey cream sauce, sautéed mushrooms and mashed potatoes to go with it.  It was a nice day!
About to enjoy our supper

Sage learned a new trick today - drinking water from a cup!  She has been very interested in our eating and drinking and I read that it's ok to introduce the cup around 5 months, so on a whim we tested it out today.  Great success!  She LOVED it.  I was dying to try out some baby food since we got the go-ahead at her check-up, but I want to wait until the effects of her shots wear off.  In the meantime, the water trick is fun!

Big girl!
