Mac’s 6 Month Pediatrician Appointment & Stats

We walked away from yesterday’s appointment with the following information ::

  1. Mackenzie is a beast (which we knew)
  2. Abigail is manipulating us (which we had a feeling was the case)
  3. It’s time to sleep train (again…ugh)
  4. It’s time to start solids (woohoo!)
  5. And last but not least, when you have to wait 45 minutes for the doctor to even enter the room, chaos ensues

Luckily enough, Daddy came with us so Mommy wasn’t forced to suffer alone. Here are a few happy photos (prior to the chaos).

Then the waiting got a little long. Mac got a little hungry. A little frustrated. And Abby’s patience ran out.

Despite the meltdowns, it was a successful appointment and as I said at the beginning, we walked away knowing that it’s officially time to get things under control with Mac (or to at least try) AND with Abby (who still wakes up in the middle of the night on occasion and asks for milk). According to Dr. Langston, Mac shouldn’t eat AT ALL at night anymore…whoops…and she should sleep 11-13 hours.  You know I’ll be updating you all on that progress…haha…

He also said Abby doesn’t really want milk in the middle of the night, she just wants us to do what she’s asking…she must have been listening to him because she didn’t wake up at all last night!

Anyway, we have quite the laundry list of things to work on but for now, let’s take a little walk down memory lane and then check out Mac’s new stats!

Dr. Abby is always close by!

  • Weight: 19 lbs 2.5 oz (95th percentile)
  • Head Circumference: 17 1/2″ (90th percentile)

What can we say, she’s a big girl!  And she’s extremely healthy.  And someday we hope we’ll be able to say she’s a great sleeper. Maybe by her 9 month appointment…I’ll keep my fingers crossed.

For now, we’ll just continue to squeeze these perfectly plump rolls…


Until next time,

        Mac only weighs like 2 lbs less than V and she’s a year younger. Do you have Crisco flowing from you? 😉
        Well done!

          I think I do…haha…no wonder I can eat 3 times more than Travis these days. 🙂 She’s almost the same size that Abby was at one year. It’s crazy!
