Eleanor: 6 months

My big girl- the last 6 months has just flown by.  It's funny because you spend your pregnancy waiting... and thinking "Are we there yet?.. are we there yet?" and now I often find myself wondering what happened to the time and thinking there isn't enough time in the day.

Weight: 19 pounds

Size: I just put her in size 3 diapers and in 6 months clothes.  

Eat:  She still is a morning baby and loves her breakfast.  She has gobbled up so many different kinds of vegetables and fruits- sweet potato, green beans, squash, prunes, pears, banana, and now peaches! Loves to make her yuck face when trying something new.  She drinks about 30-35 oz of breast milk a day and we have introduced the sippy cup!

Sleep: Sleep is still getting easier a little bit each day.  She has slept through the night several times but general wakes up 1 time a night..which I am totally okay with!

Baby Milestones: She can sit up by herself with out support and is grabbing at everything... lots of open and closing the hands.  She still is doing some rolling but not too much of a rolly polly... she is a wiggler and kicker. Her new sounds are clearing her throat and then turning into a laugh.  She also sat up from laying down by herself. She hasn't done it a lot by herself but I see her working at it.  When she sees someone she knows she smacks the ground or the person who is caring her (me) lol.  She gets so excited to see people she recognizes and just can't hold it in.

Loves: The pugs- they get the most squeals and laughs of glee from her.  For Christmas she got one of those bouncy chairs that lets you spin around and play with all the gadgets- She loves it! She kicks her legs with delight in that contraption and loves to make her self bounce.

Hates: She hates throwing something and not being able to reach it.  She throws her play keys and grumbles and then one of the pugs will sit right next to her.  I some how think the pugs are either helping her with some sort of support or maybe guarding her.  She hates falling down! She has done a couple of face plants from going from the sitting position to tummy and if she looses her balances.  tears.. :(

She has grown so much in one short month.  She makes me heart fill with so much joy.

Our pug sits next to Molly because she will play with her collar. Not sure if that feels like petting or what, but she sticks around for it. ;)

Omgosh - such a sweet and bright twinkle in her eye!!! You're right, it goes by extremely fast... before you know it they're grown and becoming parents themselves... I'll stop it at that. Enjoy every single second and, remember, there is no such thing as too many pictures or too much video! :)
