You eat so much more now. You've tried, for the first time, this month: pancakes, waffles, peas, avocado, mashed potatoes, Italian bread AND you've begun handling and drinking out of your sippy cup!
Once in a while when you are upset and you see me walking away, you've cried out, "Mama!" but that's it so far on the talking front. You gibber gabber and laugh like nobody's business. I am amazed at how much of a happy baby you truly are.
I pretty much NEVER get a picture of you NOT smiling. A smile is too much a part of your face! You are also a very needy girl, or as Daddy likes to call you "High Maintenance". You want someone around you (and pretty much right in front of you) at all times. Occasionally, you get wrapped up in your toys and forget about your parents, but you always keep tabs on your brother, Hunter. You often times light up when he walks into the room you are in!
And guess what else started to happen this month? A TOOTH!
You are still a happily breast fed baby. Four days a week you get a bottle at Nana's and you take it no problem...it's usually filled with breast milk but occasionally when it's formula, you chug it down no slower!
Aves, you had your six month check up this month and Mommy and Daddy were happy to see you are growing right on track! You weighed in at 17 lbs 6 oz and 27 inches long. You are approximately 75% for weight and 85% for height...our tall girl!
You love your brother something fierce, little girl.
And you intently watch him play, analyzing everything he does ad plays with. You bypass most of your baby toys for Hunter's trucks, tractors, and race cars. I swear, Mommy even thought it looked like you were trying to drive one of the cars along the carpet the other day! I have a suspicion we could have a little Tom-boy on our hands!
Aves, our world is definitely a brighter place with you in it. You make us all laugh on a regular daily basis and I am so thankful. I couldn't have asked for a sweeter, more happy baby than you my sweet girlie!
Mommy, Daddy and Hunter love you with all our hearts! Keep on growing and getting strong!
Love you always,
