Weight Check

The boys' snowtube is a great place for Amanda to practice sitting up. Not matter which way she tips, there's soft landing.

Amanda is 14 lbs. 3 oz today at almost six months. She's been gaining about a pound a month. She only measured 24 1/2 inches, so either she hasn't grown much taller or there's some inconsistency in measuring techniques. She's taking about six feedings a day of 4 1/2 oz. She sleeps from around 8-9 pm to 7-8 am. When she's tired she will lean her head on the floor, her toys basket or us. She does okay with skipping a nap occasionally, like for church or home school gym. Then I feed her when we get home and she goes right to sleep. Otherwise she is back in bed within a hour and a half of waking.

She's been having some issues with diaper rash after using disposables so we've started using the cloth when we go out, too. She has stayed dry and I've taken her to the potty at church and gym. Unfortunately, she has also dirtied her diaper upon waking. She is often very quiet and doesn't let us know she's awake. It's a problem that started at Christmastime when we traveled. I try to catch it and have her go in the toilet, but it's been challenging.
