6 Months Old...

Our little sweet-pea is 6 months old. We celebrated her 1/2 birthday in style by introducing her to rice cereal. She loves to dive right into it and spread it on as much of herself as possible. She's starting to get the hang of this 'eating thing' now, and it's always entertaining to see what she'll do next. So far we've stuck to rice cereal & one serving of sweet potatoes - she wasn't too sure about those. We'll try again this week...

At her 6 month well baby check-up she came in at the 75th percentile for her height & weight. She's 17 lbs & 1 oz, 26 1/2 inches long.

She's babbling a lot, making lots of raspberries, clicking her tongue, & exploring her voice. She rolls to her side and thinks that's good enough for now. She loves to smile at people & thinks that everyone is here to look at her & coo to her (works for me). If someone isn't paying attention to her when she thinks they should, she'll stare them down. This is especially entertaining when you're on a plane & your seat mate isn't watching her...

She goes to bed around 7:15 & wakes up between 5-6am to eat, then it's back to bed until around 8:30. Nice. She is loving toys & noticing the cats. I think they're getting worried...
