Sorry, I just realized that I didn't update information on Emmaline.

Monday, May 12, Emmaline saw a pediatrician for her six month well check. She is in the 4 percentile for her weight, weighing only 13 pounds 4 ounces. She is 25 and three quarters inches long, so she was in the midrange for her length. And her head circumference was like in the 1 percentile range. So, all in all, we have a very petite baby on our hands. The doctor said she looks very healthy, but also called our beloved Emmaline "lazy". Emmaline didn't really like to put any weight on her legs or be on her tummy for very long (she would just lay down her head in protest and not even try to roll over!), so she was deemed "lazy". The doctor was probably a little right. Anyhow, I've been trying to encourage her as much as possible when she will cooperate, and I am seeing improvements. She can roll onto her stomach from her back like a pro, but she still has not figured out the stomach to the back thing. Oh well, every small step counts!

That whole back to stomach thing is a lot harder than the stomach to the back - so she's not lazy. She just chooses to be like her mother & choose the path of more resistance in order to challenge herself! ;-)
