sylvie had a pediatrician appointment this morning. she wore her favorite panda hat for the occasion. (thanks aunt marsha!) we found out she weighs 14 pounds 11 ounces (that's almost a pound and a half gained since christmas eve!) and it still holding tight at 25 inches long. developmentally she is doing fantastic. she can bear weight on her legs, sit unsupported for minutes at a time, and has become a pro at mimicking us. the only area in which she is falling behind is tummy time. ever since she learned how to roll from front to back she has avoided tummy time with all of her might. i think we may have figured out a solution. this is either parenting at its worst or its finest. whatever. she did tummy time for a full 10 minutes without whining or trying to roll over. it's a new record! i don't blame her for her aversion to tummy time. why would she want to lay down when she can STAND? this is blowing my mind right about now! she can STAND with very little support. when in the heck-fire did this happen?! also, i have a confession to make. with all of the traveling we've done lately, we have gotten a little lax with cloth diapering. however, i am happy to report that we've started it again! this afternoon's diaper even matches her outfit. cloth diapers are great for the environment, friendlier to the tush, and blah blah blah. whatever. they're stinkin' CUTE. end of story. you know what else is stinkin' CUTE? sylvie does this thing where she puts one finger in her mouth and then looks at me or travis all sweet and dimply. yeah. it slays me, too. she is getting funnier and more fun every single day. this month is shaping up to be the best one yet! MONTH 6 FTW!
