Capri 6 Months

Capri is half a year old! Where has the time gone? She is such a happy baby. She loves hair, it goes straight in her mouth, and pushing buttons. She also likes playing with her brother's cars. He likes them, they must be cool. She had her 6 month check-up and they yelled at me again. She is only 12 lbs 4 oz. down to the 5th %. Tiny! But she got taller, 25 1/4 in. and the 75th %. And she looks good otherwise. She just doesn't weigh enough. They told me to start supplementing (which I totally don't agree with) and feeding her high calorie food. Like what? What baby first foods are more high calorie? I try to feed her and she doesn't like it. I can get maybe a tablespoon of oatmeal mixed with water and teaspoon of applesauce. Maybe. But at the end they agreed that maybe she is moving around so much that she is burning all of her calories. Thank you! I have been saying that for the last 2 months! Hello, this girl is crawling everywhere. They must not be too worried because They don't want to see her again before 9 months. I am not worried. I feed her every 3 hours, sometimes even at night. She is old enough to sleep through the night, I just feel bad not feeding her because she is so little! At least she is looking bigger. It is really hard on me to put her next to a newborn and have the newborn be bigger. I have to try not to cry when I see these other 3 month babies that are huge and chubby. I know I am not doing a bad job and there is not much I can do to make her get bigger. It just makes me sad sometimes. She is quite the acrobat though. She can crawl and climb and stand with help. She is not so interested in sitting. If you hold her on your lap for more than 5 minutes you start to get a workout with all of her twisting and squirming. In fact just last night I put her mattress down because she was climbing up her blankets and bumper and pulling up on the edge of her crib. So, she woke up and Josh went in to find her standing and smiling. I had to see it to believe it. How can she do that??!! Yea, its going down some more. What a crazy girl, but we just love her!

Malcolm was always super skinny. Capri has more chub than Malcolm every had. Best fatty food...Avacado. Mush it up with a little water or breast milk. Malcolm loved it. In a few months try full fat cottage cheese.
