6 months...

So I'm say.....oh, 11 days late on this, but HAPPY 6 months Adelynn!! Most of this is for my own reference...but here it is...

At your 6 month baby check you weighed just under 14 pounds and were 25 1/2 inches long! You are in the 75th percentile on the DS growth charts!

As of today you eat rice and oatmeal, peaches, pears, peas, green beans, applesauce, acorn squash, and carrots...and you don't seem to have found anything you don't like! But you really enjoy your peaches and pears the best! You are now starting to bite down on the spoon when I'm feeding you which causes for a messy meal as well as you are now trying to grab onto the spoon, which also results in quite a mess!

You love to have your mouth wiped and always have a huge smile on your face as I move the wash cloth or burp cloth over your mouth!

You just started rolling from your back to your stomach about a week ago (been rolling from front to back since 5 weeks) and you are now trying to bring your legs up under you and tend to be doing the worm scoot across the floor. Your head control is getting much better. You can sit in your bumbo for longer each day and really seem to enjoy it. You recently started using your saucer and jumperoo and also think you are big stuff in those! You love standing up on our laps and talking quite a story. You prop yourself on your elbows and are getting stronger with pushing up on your arms.

You have a favorite ball that has taught you to transfer objects from one hand to the other and do that with all toys now. You love your crinkly doll and bird as well as your Vtech ball. You could lay on the floor with those toys rolling from side to side for hours if I let you....but there is too much work to be done for that! =)

You can be all out crying and stop at the drop of a hat once we start singing you are my sunshine (even your daddy and your papa have been known to bust out the song). You also love your baby einsteins CD's in the car and have started showing interest in signing times DVD's and baby einstein DVD's. You also love our Mr. Sun song and Grandma's Oh what a miracle. I'm thinking you'll be doing something with music when you are older!

Oh what I have in store for you in the next 3 months! We are going to start mommy and me swimming class and work on getting you sitting on your own!

These last 6 months have been....well.....a time that there has been one set of footprints in the sand....because God carried us the whole way through. And we love Him even more today than yesterday because of that. Addelyn Ruth you are an amazing creature, perfectly and wonderfully made by our Father's hands. Happy 1/2 birthday! I love you like mad!
