We took Lucy to see Santa last week. It was fine, and Lucy seemed wholly unconcerned that a huge, hairy stranger was holding her. I do have a few issues with what Santa was wearing. Where is the red coat? Where is the hat? A festive blue shirt does not a Santa make! Oh well, his beard was real, I guess that counts for something.
Also, Lucy had a doctor appointment yesterday where she got weighed (and vaccinated, which I'm betting is the only part she remembers of the whole visit). At close to 6 months, she weighs in at 12 1/2 pounds, and is nearly 25 inches long! Her weight is *almost* on the chart, and her height is in the 18th percentile. Go Lucy!
At the appointment, we got the go-ahead to start giving her something to eat besides rice cereal. Here is her first experimentation with peas:
She was unimpressed.
