Violet is half a year old! She had her six month weigh in and for the first time ever, she went up in her weight percentile! She is now 1.1%, which of course is still quite light, but we are very excited that she is making progress. We attribute the weight gain to acid reflux medication, supplementing higher calorie formula and the introduction of solid foods. She regressed in her sleeping habits and is waking up once a night most of the time. She is a happy girl and loves to be around her parents and her siblings. She is nervous of most everyone else and cries if someone other than her family is holding her, talks to her or even looks at her. This is what is going on with Violet at six months of age.
