six months

Today is Sweet Pea's six month birthday.
Six months.
Yes, I've already had
six delightful months of knowing my little sweetie!
It's been lovely.

Right now Sweet Pea...

is getting over a cold
is still trying to get those stubborn teeth
and has been sleeping horribly.
(schedule? what's that?)
has been super cuddly
holds on with a tight hug when being carried
is beginning to outgrow being swaddled while sleeping
began wearing 6-9 month sized clothes a couple of weeks ago

is adding more variety to her list of solid foods
still likes apples
loves pears and sweet potatoes
enjoys rice (especially when it's mixed with pears)
kinda tolerates avocado
sits up in a booster chair for meals
bounces in excitement when she sees that her food is on the way
likes blowing her food out of her mouth
(which her brothers find hilarious.)

loves, loves, loves to bounce
(in the johnny-jump-up, while being held, while sitting down...
she even tries to bounce when she's prone.)
has figured out how to get out of her Bumbo chair
sits up on the floor in the middle of a Boppy pillow
can scoot around backwards while lying on her back
likes being near her brothers
loves toys that make noise
is delighted when the boys share their toys with her
still rolls from her stomach to her back
and from her back to her side

loves Brother's squeezes
has an enthusiastic morning greeting ritual with Little Man
is fascinated when her daddy practices his golf swing
still says "mama" when she's sad
has a delightful, contagious laugh
smiles a lot
has already started posing for the camera
sheds real tears when crying
has figured out how to fake cough to get attention
delights us all with her silly faces and fun personality

Gorgeous! Happy 6 month birthday little one! What's the gap between Sweet-pea and her brother? - he's so lovely with her!

They're almost exactly 23 months apart.

Sorry about the comment delete. For some reason my post process didn't go right and it posted twice--so I deleted one. But now it looks like I said something horrible and retracted it, lol!
