6 Month Milestones

This post contains affiliate links that help me continue this blog. Thanks for your support!

This month:
-You got your first 2 bottom teeth!
-You have started solid foods- so far you have had rice cereal, applesauce, pears, avocado, peas, carrots, oatmeal, and prunes- you LOVE them all!
-You weigh 17lbs, 2oz and are 27.5" long
-You are really trying to sit up on your own
-You are so roly-poly now! You roll around the room to get to where and what you want
-You are getting pretty steady at sitting up- you can't quite be trusted to not tip over, especially when tired, but you are doing a great job!

Dear Gracie,
I can't believe it's your half birthday already! Where have these 6 months gone?! It still feels like yesterday that I was in labor and breathing through each contraction, awaiting your arrival. We have survived your first teething experience. We felt like it was coming, so we weren't completely blown away. But, you were pretty cranky and you didn't want to eat much. I knew something was up because you had been loving eating solids and then all of the sudden, you were uninterested. Now they are poking through and as cute as a button. You are rolling all over the place- I mean all over. We can't turn our back anymore for fear of you rolling onto the tile floor. We haven't baby proofed yet...I think we are holding off to see if we move and you aren't yet sitting up without our help so we are always there. 

Mommy and Daddy are really prepping the house to get ready to move. We do it while your are sleeping or while one of us is with you on the floor...We don't want to take any time away from you :-) Mommy is still that mom who sits in the back with you :-/ We don't mind, but I guess some people think it's weird or that I can get over it... I love watching you sleep and playing with you in the car when we go places. 

You love people watching- just like Mommy and Daddy. Some people may think you are anti-social or don't smile but for us and people you know, you are always smiling. But, for strangers and new situations, you just watch everything and take it in. You are a smart little cookie.


Love,
Momma
