Amelia, you're 6 months old!!
It's your half-birthday sweet girl. :)
We can't believe how fast you're growing. It seems like you're doing something new every day!
You weigh 17 lbs - 11 ounces and you're 26" long.
You're wearing size 2 diapers.
You're wearing size 6-9 month clothes. In some brands, the 6 month is already too short, so we've moved you up to the 9 month for length.
You continue to sleep 7-9 hours a night.
You still sleep in your pack-n-play beside Mommy's side of the bed.
You're eating 8 ounces every four hours.
We've also introduced you to rice cereal with peaches! Of course, you like it much better than the plain rice cereal. :)
We'll introduce a veggie next week. I'm hoping you like veggies more than your Daddy - he's not a big veggie-eater! First on the list...sweet peas!
*can you hear your Daddy gagging??*
You continue to fake cough and think it's so funny.
You've discovered your feet. They're your new favorite toy.
You seem to be tired of your swing, but love your play gym more than ever!
You also love your exersaucer that Uncle Chris & Aunt Kerri let us borrow!
You're sitting up for a few seconds without our help. We know you will be doing it all by yourself very soon!
You've started sticking your tongue out at people. Just like Mommy when she was little. She always had her tongue out in pictures. (LOL)
You smack your lips constantly and it's so cute. This is one of your Daddy's favorite things that you do. He's constantly getting you to smack your lips!
You had your first drink of water out of a straw and you LOVED it! You just kept opening your mouth for more. Your dress was soaked afterwards! :)
You are definitely teething and we feel so sorry for you. You chew on EVERYTHING.
You love to put the burp cloth over your face. You think it's so funny when we finally pull it away from your face. We think if we didn't pull it away, you would sit under there for hours! (LOL)
How you love for the burp cloth to be on your face is amazing to us, because you HATE for any type of clothing to go over your head. When we dress you, you immediately start freaking out when a shirt goes over your head. We have to be quick when dressing/undressing you.
You can roll from back to stomach and stomach to back, but don't do it every time we lay you down. Not sure when you will decide to roll every time we put you down. We're making sure not to walk away and leave you - unless you're on the floor (just to be safe). :)
You're Mommy's best little shopping buddy. If you have a full belly and a clean diaper, you'll shop til Mommy drops!
You love to hold hands. A lot of times when you're upset, all it takes is to let you hold our finger and you're happy again.
When we lean down to give you kisses, you will put your hands up and want to hold our face. We think this is just precious!
You continue to be the happiest baby we know. We can't take you anywhere without someone commenting on your beautiful eyes and sweet smile.
Amelia, we never knew that our hearts could hold so much love for someone. We love you more than words can say!
