Time is flying by as Adeline turned 6 months old. How in the world our baby girl is half of a year old, we do not know! At her 6 month check-up, she was 12 pounds 12 ounces (3rd percentile so moving up the chart!). She's in the 20th percentile for height. To celebrate her 6 month birthday, she tried sweet potatoes for the first time and loved them. She's since tried peas and squash. She hated the peas initially but will now eat them.

Adeline had an appointment with her cardiologist last week. He thoroughly checked her out and did an echo. I expect that Andrew and I will be anxious before every cardiologist visit for probably the rest of Adeline's life. We expected all to go well, but there's always that worry. Dr. Shuler gave Adeline a great report! He said her arch repair still looks fabulous (thanks Dr. Bradley!), and he doesn't anticipate any complications from it considering how good it looks at this point. Her mitral and aortic valves aren't normal (we've always known this), but they're functioning normally and growing with her heart which is all we can ask for. He said that she should live to be an old lady with her heart just the way it is - the best news we heard all day! When it came time to discuss her next appointment, he said he'd see her in 6 months - 6 months?! What a blessing that he's so confident in her heart to wait six months. We are so thankful for her amazing doctors and the care that they are able to provide her.
Adeline's a pro at sitting up now. She can sit for a good amount of time by herself but will still topple over occasionally. I know she's enjoying the new view. She's mesmerized by buttons, patterns, or logos on shirts. I think they could entertain her for hours as she's always trying to pull them off. Her feet are at the top of her list of favorite toys right now as well. Not always so fun when I'm trying to feed her, and all she wants to do is play with her feet. I think it's also time we finally give in and put her in the nursery at church. She is a happy squealer, and perhaps she's just wanting to participate in the service as well but man can she be loud during church. And it's always in the middle of a prayer...never during songs!
