26/52 // SIX MONTHS

Our little chickadee turns six months old on Wednesday! It's incredible how fast it's gone by! 

She had her six month checkup last week and she was given a perfect bill of health! 

Weighing in at 14lbs she's right where she needs to be but we're supposed to work her up to three solid food meals a day before her next appointment. We're starting with a lunchtime meal and so far she's still only swallowing foods with avocado mixed in - her favorite is avocado and blueberry. We tried peaches and banana the other day and she was not about that crap. We also were instructed to start giving her water in a sippy cup and this morning I learned that cold water is a very, very bad idea - threw it all up. She's still our little short stack (according to percentiles and such) at 24 inches, but no one is worried about that. She's a petite babe after all. 

Her newest tricks include sticking her tongue out and blowing raspberries like there's no tomorrow and that she's on the verge of crawling. SO CLOSE! She lifts herself up off the floor a little more each day. All she needs to do is figure out how to mover her arms while she's up and she'll be taking off. She's already very mobile in that she can roll and turn herself wherever she's made her mind up to go. She'll do a double or triple roll and turn herself around if it gets her to her favorite toy! We can no longer leave her alone on the top floor of the living room. Baby gates are a purchase in our very near future I'm pretty sure!

Our little girl never ceases to amaze and entertain us!
....Errrr speaking of which, I need to go get her before she eats the grocery bag on the floor

Belle got to see her Grandma after not seeing her for a couple months!
So she got spoiled with all kinds of attention and playing all weekend.
Even though it was a short weekend, she woke up this morning looking for her kisses from Grandma.

This week she started has started taking a 5-10 minute catnap in the morning, so we just snuggle on the couch until she springs back to life. I've been loving it because she rarely snuggles anymore (too much of a big girl for that). She also started "blowing raspberries" over and over again like nobody's business. She did it for about 10 minutes straight in the store last week. It's definitely her new favorite activity.

Can we just talk about how big she is?
I mean c'mon! 

Happy Labor Day folks!

This week we've just been very sleepy girls. We had early morning after early morning for Dr appointments and other such things and it just wore us out. So there has been a lot of crying, napping, & fussy buttness. We made it to the other side though *hopefully* without making early mornings a habit. Today she woke up around 7:30 and I've just let her continue to grunt and soothe herself back to sleep until 9 this morning so that hopefully she'll get back to her regular routine. I know those earlier mornings will probably become a way of life soon enough, I'm holding on to her perfect get up time as long as I can! In other news she's doing better and better when she's away from me. We went on another date this weekend and she did great (yay!) and she's still doing great in the nursery.
She's also getting so close to crawling, it's ridiculous. I don't know what I'm going to do if she starts crawling soon... baby-proofing our little home is going to be a bit difficult with no good places to hide things. Yikes! Haha.
