6 Months

How did this:

turn into this?:



A half a year?! WHAT? Considering I really don't remember the first 2 months of her life, this really isn't fair. Although she is SO MUCH FUN, she's getting too big too quickly. Seriously. She plays, cuddles, communicates, slaps, kicks, bites, giggles...all on purpose too! (Hm...that made her sound very violent)
Part of me can't wait to see what she's like in another 6 months, but it's a catch 22. I now understand what Julia meant when she said her baby wasn't a baby anymore. He was 8 months or something. I said, "If he's in diapers, he's still a baby!" Sorry Julia, I understand now!

At 6 months:

She's barely tipping the scales at 13 lbs
She can roll from front to back and back to front- although not to get anywhere, just when she's bored
She's sleeping 5-7 hrs in a row at night
She's napping- for real! at least one 1-hr nap day (the others are 20-45 minutes)
She loves her daddy- and gets so happy and excited when he comes home from work
She wants mommy when she's tired and cranky
She cracks up at the "white dog" and "goldfish" pages in Brown Bear Brown Bear, What do you See?
She won't sit- but loves to stand
She is MAJORly stranger shy
She still loves bath time (although there were a couple weeks where she didn't like it due to a very scary water inhalation incident)



and mommy and daddy are very proud: Her favorite toy is a spatula (people at mass always crack up when we pull it out)
