I can't believe it! My little angel is 6 months old already! That's halfway to 1! My little munchkin is just growing and growing. At her 6 month well check today, she was 28.5 inches long and 15 lbs. 6 oz.!
I probably say this a lot but she's just so stinking smart and beautiful! She's sooo close to crawling! She gets up on all fours but doesn't move yet, but you can see she's determined to. In the mean time she rolls to wherever she wants to go, and sometimes that's clear across a room. It's crazy! And she's fast too!
Still no teeth have broken through but she gnaws on everything so it'll be very soon. This month she started trying baby foods! She's had green beans, green peas, mashed potatoes, a bite of raspberry sorbet, turkey & gravy, beef & gravy and chicken & gravy and still not a single mess! She also tried water for the first time and in a sippy cup no less and took to it immediately. Never dropped it or threw it and held it herself the whole time!
And she learned to wave!
And likes to stand (assisted) whenever possible! This month she decided that she was done with her swing, so I've broken that down and moved it to storage. Instead she has moved on to her exersaucer, which she just loves!
She celebrated her first 4th of July by participating in a parade and watching sparklers. We also went to the beach for the very first time! She wasn't entirely sure what she thought of the water but she did really well. All in all, it was a successful trip.
She also took her first day long mini-vacation to Ft. Lauderdale! We did a lot of walking around, window shopping, and then got to hang out in the pool for a bit! Sophia got to meet my cousin, Sarah, and Uncle Mark, and we had a pretty tasty dinner with the whole family at Outback :)
