My peanut

It's hard to believe that it was a year ago this past week I found out I was pregnant. Now she's a little over 5 months old!

Friday we took DD to get her next round of vaccinations. It was supposed to be at 6 months but due to the way they schedule things in that office she's not even 5 1/2 months. Fortunately the time span from her last round was within the limits and she was able to get them any way. Daddy got to hold her feet this time. I wish there was a better way to do that. It just hurts me to have to be a part of that torture.

She also had her measurements taken. She was 23 inches (5th percentile), 12 lbs 10.5 oz (15th percentile), and 41 1/2 cm (50th percentile). I don't understand why they used a full term chart and her actual age to figure percentile. Shouldn't there be one for preemies?

The doc was impressed how she well she can sit and stand (assisted of course) and maintain great head control. She is rolling over now, which concerns the doc because of SIDS. I fully understand that but how do I control her from rolling over everytime I put her in the crib. She gets mad at me if I try to move her. At what point do you stop worrying?
