Sienna’s 6 month stats:

— She is 27 3/4 inches (98th percentile). She is actually 3/4 of an inch longer than Brae at this same age.
— She weighs 18 lbs, 11.5 ounces (90th percentile). She is 2 pounds heavier than Brae at this same age.
— Her head is 17 inches circumference. That is the 76th percentile.

All in all, a well-proportioned girl. She has been in 12-18 month clothes…. for a while.

She is sitting on her own for periods of time. And she rolls, rolls, rolls.

Dr. said her eyes will probably stay the color they are (sky blue). We are in trouble. ; )

She’s starting to get a little more hair. It’s strawberry blond.

We received a Christmas card from our donors, and their children’s 3rd grade pictures. The resemblance between Sienna and her genetic sister is ASTOUNDING. If Sienna ends up looking anything like her, she is going to be a beauty (of course, we believe she already is).

Her torticollis has greatly improved. The PT thinks she may only need one more appointment. She still likely has several more chiro appointments in her future, however.

Brae stories:

— We had a visit from Roto-Rooter the other night. Brae stuffed an entire roll of ultra-thick Charmin toilet paper down the toilet. That ended up being a $150 dollar lesson.

— Brae only needs about 10-11 hours of sleep, total, in a 24-hour period. He takes a 2-hour nap at his school. Which means he only needs 8-9 hours at night. Which means he often likes to play in his room until about 9-10 p.m. at night (much to our chagrin). Which also means that Mommy and Daddy are in bed before he is (!). Sometimes, this poses a problem. Case in point — it was 9:30 last night and Tygh and I had just climbed into bed. We had heard Brae talking to his imaginary schoolmates in his room. Then, about 10 minutes later, I hear Brae open his door. Silence. Silence for the next 5 minutes.

More silence.

Then, I hear a loud “HOLA!” from Flicker, his Handy Manny flashlight. Brae is pointing Flicker right in my face, and has turned on the light right in my eyes.

Me: “Brae, what are you doing?
Brae: “Mommy, I came to say good night and I needed a flashlight to come and find you.”

Sigh. How can I ever get upset with this boy?
