Someone hold me.
Month 6 was a pretty big deal. She teethed some more and fussed, but teeth are still hidden, far-off things. She had her six-month vaccinations and they went fine. She met a ton of animals and loved every single one. She doesn't have stranger anxiety, but is a little more clingy with me these days. She makes new sounds every week. She laughs at things like books on a shelf or streetlights or running water.
She crawls a lot. It's still technically just scooting on her belly, but she can move pretty far pretty quickly with just that. We have to shut doors to keep her out of rooms and away from power cords. That girl loves power cords.
She likes going for walks and loves it when we read to her. She loves music. (Still.) She likes to pull off her socks and chew on them. She's better at traveling. She seems to recognize certain words--especially people's names. She gets upset when we have to stop doing something she likes, like when we leave a grandparent's house or pull a power cord out of her hands.
And we're trying out solids! She wasn't a big fan of mashed bananas, but she loves really soupy rice cereal. I really appreciate people being so excited about that--I got texts, 2 likes on YouTube, several comments in real life, and her Uncle Brad made this for us:
Just how big is she? We haven't measured in far too long, but I know she weighs a little over 17 pounds. And how do we know?
|Like check out Yarniverse. She loved it.|
|And browse a children's bookstore.|
I love life with this girl.
