6 months!

It's insane.  Daughter's already 6 months old!  I'm going to do a quick write up of how she's developing.

She can roll over both ways.  Though she really doesn't like being on her stomach, so back to stomach is a rarity.

She can sit!  For a few seconds unassisted.  She rocks the boppy.  And when mama's sitting behind her with my legs around her, she sits for upwards of a minute!

She's a content girl.  Not overly happy.  We really have to work to get her to giggle, but once she does, we can keep her going for 10 minutes if we just keep doing whatever goofy thing we did to make her giggle in the first place.  When I ask her to, she'll smile about 1/2 the time.

Sometimes, if she's really tired but not fussy, she gets giggly.  I love it!  Sometimes it's while nursing in public (when she doesn't want to sleep) and then she just pops off and looks up at me through the neck hole of the nursing cover and starts to giggle.  So adorable!

She's starting to abandon her beloved play mat... but now she has a jumper.  She can jump in that for 40 minutes and stay content.  We had to put a pillow under it at the lowest setting because she's on the short side.

She's been mesmerized by her hands a lot lately.  It's so cute!  She'll just be lying or sitting there and then all of the sudden- "woah... check these things out!"

She's now had carrots, apples, bananas, rice, venison,  and sucked on brocolli and pears.  My mom got me a magic bullet for Christmas so making baby food is so easy!

She usually takes 3- 1/2 hour or 45 minute naps per day.  She normally sleeps 12-13 hours at night with an average of one wake up.  But even when she does wake once, it's usually around 8 hours since she went to bed.

She's the most smiley when she first wakes up.  When she sees us over her crib, she generally has a big grin :)

Her mobile motor started buzzing so we stopped using it.  Now during daytime naps we just use her fish tank night light and her Ipod (yes, she has an Ipod!  Grandpa thought her toys played bad music, so he got her an Ipod!) and for night sleeps just the normal night light.

She loves being worn.  She loves when we dance while wearing her.  She doesn't like her Boba wrap anymore.  She needs to face out to see the world!  She loves to watch what we're doing... dishes, laundry, cleaning, cooking.

She loves to pull mama's hair.  Sometimes clear out of my head!

She's such an amazing blessing.  We thank God for her every day.  She's our Daughter- our gift from God.  He entrusted us to love and care for her.  Wow.  So amazing :)
