Baby 6 months pictures and stats

My sister-in-law and my brother of Gallery Image Photography came to take Baby's 6-month pictures! I LOVE these pictures to death! (Can I say that, love to death? Hmm. Let me think about that one. Maybe I should say "love them to pieces," but I already put the other one down and I don't want to take the time to erase it after I have taken the time to type up all my thoughts about the process in these parentheses, so, it stays.)

I love the faces. They capture "her." Nothing fake. Just her funny looks and quirky smiles.

Before pics, here are her stats.

She may have FXS but she is totally up to speed on all her development right now. So for any of you who may have been worried about your kids because you thought my kid was behind. You are in luck. She is right where she should be. Reaching, holding, trying to sit when prompted, rolling a little bit—mostly to her side from her back, but does well from tummy to back.

A few weeks ago she weighed in at the doctor's office at 12.5 punds. I am guessing that she is easily 13 pounds if not 13.5.

This has all been such a new experience for me with Baby. She is much more on track developmentally than Brother or Sister. She is my chubbiest baby. She started sleeping through the night about 4 days ago. We will see how long it lasts...

Of course Brother had to sneak in there. I am always happy when he will actually look at the camera when his picture is taken.
