[Getting her picture is getting harder and harder--all she wants to do is play with the owl now, eat it's ear, chew on it's foot....etc.
This was the most decent shot we got out of like, a billion.]
You are six months old today. Six.
Every month I am shocked at how fast the time goes---but half a year?? I cannot even believe it. We've watched you grow and change into such a gorgeous little six month old. It's been the best experience of my life being your momma.
You are a busy little girl. You can get anywhere you feel like going simply by rolling, or getting up on your knees and pushing off. You haven't quite figured out crawling yet and I'm perfectly okay with that. You love your toys, you love to grab at people's faces, and you will smile BIG at people you know and love. You are a sociable little girlie.
The newest thing this month is the constant babbling. Your most favorite is "Da-Da", and the sweetest thing is when you whisper it (yes, whisper) when your Daddy holds you or takes you up to bed. You also say "na-na", and sometimes "ba-ba". You love your voice and are pretty much talking most the time we're at home. When we go out, you are pretty perfectly quiet (at a restaurant and such), and we appreciate that, too :)
This month you also can sit very steady on your own. So, we've graduated you to the front of the shopping carts, and sitting in the high chairs at restaurants. It makes life SO much easier, and you love to look around. Happy baby=happy mommy.
You weigh 16lbs 13oz, are 26" long and your noggin is 17". You are growing perfectly and on track with where you're supposed to be. You are wearing size 3 diapers, some 3-6 month clothes, and mostly things 6 month are fitting perfectly now. You have a very few 6-9 month things that fit.
You're eating solids twice a day now, but you're still a small eater. You eat some fruit in the morning, veggies at night, and nurse in between. You are nursing a whole lot less then you used too. You always sleep about two 5.5-6.5 stretches at night, plus maybe another 2 hours or so. You nap twice a day.
You still love bathtime and all the one on one time you get with your Daddy. You two are seriously adorable together.
Your blonde hair is coming in more thick this month (and its very light!), and your eyes are still icy blue. You are a stunning little lady.
You make our hearts melt everyday. You are a blessing from God. You're a reminder that good things come in small packages, and you.are.loved.
