My sweet, little love bug... You are HALF a year old. You are learning so, so much. You are like a little sponge that soaks everything up.
At 6 months you weigh 14.11 lbs (25th percentile)
and you are 25-3/4" long (50th percentile)
Anytime we are out and about and people ask how old you are, they always comment on how petite you are for your age. They, of course, always mention how stinkin' adorable you are as well. ;)
You are a rolly polly olly... when we lay you down for play time you usually end up across the room in about 2 minutes. You have figured out that if you want something you can roll your little self over to get it.
We are still working on sitting up. You can do it for about 10-20 seconds until you fall over.
You took your first (of many) trips to St. Louis this month!! The weather was cold and rainy, so we did not get to get out and about as much as we hoped. But you did get to meet all of our best buddies for the first time! We cannot wait to see them all again soon. And you were AWESOME during the 5 hour car ride! We are so thankful that you are such a good baby no matter where we are!
This month we will be starting solid foods. I am so excited to see how you do with them. We get to start with veggies first. You have been SO interested in our food the last month or two, so I cannot wait to watch you eat!
Unfortunately, seperation anxiety is still in the works for you. You are definitely a Mommy's girl and for the most part do not care to be with anyone but Mommy. We are working on this... But it is hard for both you and mommy! If we are out in public and there are plenty of things to distract you, you are great with other people, but if we are at home or in a very small group, most of the time you know who has you and you get upset.
You LOVE hands... your hands, mommy's hands, daddy's hands. If there is a hand in your view, you are very intrigued!
We discovered that you are a HUGE fan of Veggie Tales. We don't like for you to watch TV much, but there are some days you get fussy in the evenings and we can't seem to calm you down, we put Veggie Tales on and it is like magic.
You are wearing size 3 diapers and are in some 3-6 month clothes and some 6 month clothes.
You have the most gorgeous blue eyes and the most precious gummy smile. Your belly laughs make our hearts melt! We are the most blessed because of you!!!
