Finally back online and have tons of updates to share!
We took Savannah in for her 6 month check-up on Friday...lots of surprises:
1) Her growth hasn't slowed much yet (Dr promises it should by 9 months...we'll see...that's what he said at 4 months!). She's 28" long which was off the charts, so officially greater than 97%, 18lbs 3oz which put her roughly in the 87% (down slightly from 90% at 4 months) and her head size remains consistently in the 75% (17"). Her Pedi is reassuring us that he thinks she won't actually be GIGANTIC as an adult and thinks her head size is more reflective of where she'll ultimately end up percentage wise (let's hope so!)
2) WE HAVE OUR 1st TOOTH!! It popped through Friday AM just in time for her appt - it's so freaking adorable...but the surprise is she's going to get 3 more w/in next couple of weeks according to Pedi. The one that's through is bottom front (right)...bottom front (left) is really close too and apparently her two top front teeth are also getting close. I can't believe she'll have 4 teeth soon!
3) We also have our 1st ear infection (boooo)...she had no symptoms and so we're not sure how long she's had it...now we have 10 days of antibiotics for it and suddenly she's sleeping through the night again. Do we blame the teething, the ear infection? I dunno, but it's amazing how once the tooth popped through and we started antibiotic she's sleeping 8+ hours again...
And we survived the move (barely), haven't hardly started unpacking but did take 10 mins to take her for her first swim in the pool! She was so cute and kicked around but otherwise I think was wondering what all the fuss was about

I'm so glad that your move is finished and you can finally relax in your pool! Sounds like Savannah's appointment was overall good, despite the ear infection. I guess it is a good thing that it didn't seem to bother her much.
Where are the pictures of her swimming
Glad you survived the moved, I hate moving, so I'm glad all 3 of you are alive and well.
Sorry about the ear infection, and OMG she's tall. It sounds like she is doing wonderful.
How are you feeling?
