annie-bellie update.

I brought Annabelle to the Doctor today for her 6 month check up. {yes, she's over 7 months already.}
She has had a lengthy growth-spurt. 

Last visit, she was at the 50th percentile for weight and height. Today she was at the 50th percentile for weight, but the 90th percentile for height. My oh my! No wonder she's already stretching out of her 6-12 month footed onsies but her dresses are too loose. And in case you care, her head went from the 40th to the 55th percentile.

she weighs 16lbs 9oz
Annabelle can sit on her own, without support.
She can stand really well, with support.
I was told to put her on her tummy a lot more, because she's not very good at rolling.
She's very strong and active though.

She had a tooth(bottom right fang) pop through two weeks ago, but it went back in her gums last week. Now this week, it seems like she's teething again, perhaps her two front bottom teeth at once? I'm seeing some white coming in around there.

Poor little girl was sickie sickie this weekend. I'm not sure if her fever/diarrhea/lethargy was because of the teething or perhaps she picked up a little bug. Chase has been sick, so it's very possible he passed something on to her. This is luckily only the second time she's been mildly sick (or sick at all.) The only nice thing about her not feeling well is how cuddly and sleepy she is. It's adorable.

she rarely will sleep without blankies.

Today I went to church, after spending the morning preparing a lesson, only to realize it was stake conference today and I had missed it.
My lesson was titled "I Am Thankful for My Eyes"- how darling is that? {Read John 9:1-7} I really am thankful for MY eyes. All the beautiful things to see, the wonderful things to do, there are far too many things we need eyes for. I am glad my eyes work.


I read Freakonomics yesterday. I bought the book for Chase, but after I read the first couple pages, I was hooked. Have you read it? What did you think? I love how he comes up with new ways to present boring data. I was a little offended when I saw my name was on the poor-white person list, though I was relieved to find out I spell my name correctly. {unlike the thousands of Brittney, Britney, Britni, Britani's out there, etc}

Well tonight Annabelle was really having a sad time. She's teething and quite uncomfortable. She wouldn't go to sleep and stay asleep, so because I felt desperate to comfort her, I got in her crib with her. I layed beside her, head on her sleep sheep, and cozied up to her by nursing. Oh my previous little girl, it was so comfortable in there I wished I had thought of getting in with her sooner. Chase walked in and was very curious what on earth I was doing laying in the crib.

Tonight was a rant on my iPhone. No pictures cause I don't know to upload them in my phone. Anyone else know?

Xoxo, Brittany
