She likes it!!!

Emma had a big day yesterday. She had another visit with her OT and she showed off all her new skills. The awesome news is that she's off the charts (developmentally) for her adjusted age and actually on the charts, 10-25%, for her actual age. THAT IS HUGE!!! It means she catching up, which is our goal!! I am so proud of her! In case you're wondering she's rolling from front to back, she sticks out her tongue, she grabs her knees (and is working on her toes), she is picking up toys with both hands and putting them in her mouth, she LOVES to stand (with help of course) and we're working on sitting up!
She also had her 6 month doctor's appointment, she's 10lbs 12.5oz, 22 1/2 inches tall and her head is 15 1/2" around (4 months stats were 8lbs 13oz, 20 1/2" and 14 14"), she's still tiny but she's following her own little curve so the doctor is happy. She got the okay to start solid foods and we talked A LOT about this coming RSV/Flu/Cold season. He told us that we don't need to be quarantined (yay!!) but that we have to be very smart about who visits (NO sick people and everyone needs to wash their hands) and where we go (no tight spaces with a ton of people). Her shots (4 of them) sucked, but she handled it pretty well and slept like a champ last night!
Here are some picks of her first bites of cereal, I have a video but I haven't figured out how to upload it yet :)

What's that you say? Time for cereal?
I'm ready!

I'm not so sure about this

oh yes I am, this is good!

good and messy!

Can't a girl eat without the paparazzi in her face?

I think I'm done now, thank you. My hand has enough left on it to last me a while :)
