6 months old!

Well, it's been almost a week since Amelia's half birthday, and as I sit down to write this post I realized how indicative that is of how quickly time is flying by these days! I can't believe my baby girl is 6 months old already! To summarize the last month, all I can say is that she is GROWING! She went in for her checkup (and more shots, boo) yesterday and while she weighs in at an average 15 lbs 12 oz, she is a whopping 27 inches long! That puts her in the 90th percentile for length! We're not entirely sure where that comes from - maybe grandpa Jon? - since both David and I are pretty average in height. She hasn't cut any new teeth this month, but her constant chewing and drooling indicate that more are definitely on their way. She is rolling all over the place, pushing herself up a bit, and moving around on her tummy, all just short of actually crawling. If she sees something that she wants, she figures out how to get to it! We started her on some rice cereal, which she seems to like well enough, and she's had a little bit of banana, which she's not overly excited about yet. She still LOVES her stuffed piglet and likes to suck on him or the edge of a blanket when going to bed. She's starting to figure out how to sit up without much support (although we have to put her in that position, she hasn't figured out how to push herself into a sitting position yet). She also likes to holler. A lot. She's found her voice and wants to be heard! Overall, we're really enjoying this stage - as she's much more interactive, but still fairly non-motile! The next stage will be here soon enough!

6 months.

4 months (just realized that I forgot to get a 5 month car seat photo - see!? time is moving by way too fast!)
