6 month check up

Nayeli had her 6 month check up on Friday May 1st. We called her Doctor ahead to make sure it was safe to bring her in because of the swine flu. When we arrived they immediately put is in a room. I had Nayeli covered pretty good in her stoller like I always do. Nayeli is only used to seeing Shane and I. Last time we were at her RSV shot in March she was very upset over the nurses looking at her or talking to her. The same thing happened this time. We were shocked when Dr. Hahn came in to the exam room. We thought for sure she would start crying. Nayeli just stared at him and allowed him to examine her. Nayeli was so smitten by him that she posed several times while Dr. Hahn took pictures of us. Nayeli is a total flirt.
Dr. Hahn examining Nayeli
Nayeli now weighs 14 lbs. 13 oz and measures 26 1/2 inches. She is 20% percentile (for weight) and 75% percentile (for her height). She is doing great. She received her shots after her exam. In the past, she has screamed and cried when she got her shots. This is always preceeded by a reddening face, and then the scream! This time, Nayeli got upset and cried, but it was nothing like it has been. We think she is getting used to the shots. Pretty soon, we expect her to laugh when she gets a shot. Dr. Hahn said she will not need anymore shots until her 1st Birthday. What a relief.

Nayeli has been doing alot more tummy time on her own time in her crib when she wakes up from her naps. Shane likes to call it self initiated tummy time. She has been doing push ups and is showing us how strong she is. She is almost ready to do P90X with daddy! She is trying to sit up on her own but still needs help by us or pillows to prop her up. Nayeli's bottom teeth are coming in. I haven't been able to take a clear picture. She shakes her head back and forth when she has her teether in her mouth. She looks like a dog jerking a toy, we think it's funny.
Onesie II
Last summer at our baby shower in L.A our friends made onesies for Nayeli in all different sizes. Here are the ones that fit her now.
