Laney Wishes You A Sweet and Fruitful New Year

Baby Business – 6 Months Edition

It’s been a rough couple of weeks for Delaney.  Since being in daycare she’s apparently been in contact with every germ in existence short of Ebola.  Being the generous baby that she is, she insists on sharing her germs with Mom and Dad.  (She’s our very own Outbeak Monkey.)  So far, Dad has been lucky and remains mostly germ free.  Mom, on the other hand, has succumbed to some alien strain that’s yet to be identified and is slowly being encased in some pod-like structure.  I’ll let you know how that works out.

So, although we’ve spent a lot more time lately at the doctor’s office, yesterday was actually planned as Laney had her 6 month check up.    You’ll be happy to know that she’s still one of the largest babies in the world for her age, weighing in at 19 lbs. 2 oz (95%), 28″ long (off the chart at >97%) and a head circumference of 17 3/4″ (97%).

In other news, she’s been saying “da da” all week and I’ve deluded myself into thinking she’s actually talking about me.   She’s spent the last two weeks working her way through the world of orange veggies and will soon make the transition to green veggies.  Sam is very excited because now we can add a new color to all of those stained clothes.  I was hoping for something in Gator blue, but there doesn’t seem to be any food item of that color that can be mooshed up into a baby poo type of consistency and bottled.

Laney also has her first tooth showing and it’s sharp.  I know this because she’s learned from Bailey how to bite, rend and tear.  Again, we’re so proud.

That’s it for now.  Stay tuned for all of the latest in Laney news.  Oh, one more thing.  Laney demands you vote for Obama and you really don’t want to upset Laney.  Especially now that she has teeth.

Delaney vs. Orange Veggies

It was a big weekend here at the Schrager home.  Delaney, who’s now 6 months old and 19 lbs. (!!!) decided it was time to try and eat messier foods.  Mom decided that orange was a pretty color and we purchased a bunch of squash and sweet potato moosh.  Saturday night the adventure began.

Please join us as Laney experiences her first bowl of orange veggies.
