Hey, where's my hair?!?!

Emily Grace had her 6 month check up today. She's growing and developing normally. She's developed what the doctor called "stranger anxiety" only most of the time this sort of anxiety occurs more often than not with family because they are usually fascinated with strangers. She cried when the nurse weighed her and then again when the doctor began his examination. She is normally overjoyed and full of smiles for them. The doctor was proud of this accomplishment. My sister in law does not share his pride for she is Emily's latest cause of anxiety.

As you can tell in the picture she's still searching for her hair. She weighs in at a whopping 16lbs 12oz. She's in the 75th percentile for her height but right in the middle on her weight. Her lungs are finally clear after a run in with RSV followed by bronchitis. So, we can put away the dehumidifier (hopefully until next winter). She got three immunization shots today and she handled it very well. She cried when the injections were going in and then gave the nurse the sad puppy dog face afterward, but otherwise she did very well.

My little peanut 3.0 is growing so quickly. It seems like yesterday we were bringing her home from the hospital!

***My FIL got the phone lines fixed at my house (THANK YOU, RAY!!!!) tonight by re-wiring the house. So, I'm back online now. Whew!!!***

The stages they go through...so funny. I love your take on her picture today. My son was "bald" for the longest time. When he was a teen, his hair hung to his butt. I guess he was making up for lost time...

sweet little Emily.. What a little doll.. She will find her hair. Jessica was just like her until she was about a year old. Stranger's are scary to me also. Have a great Thursday my friend

Emily is a doll! I'd cry if someone poked me with 3 needles!

I had a niece who didn't find her hair until she was 2 years old! She made up for it though... she has the thickest hair I've ever seen!

What a little cutie pie she is honey. The hair will come in due time. Not to worry.

Have a terrific day, and I'm glad you got your Internet back. Big hug and lotsa lovies. :)

My third child was bald at birth -- and stayed that way for months. Last week, I posted something on my blog about one unusual experience we had because of her baldness. It's been many years, but I remember it like yesterday.

It's always fascinating to see bald babies. My sisters and I all had very hairy babies; we thought that was the norm!
