6 months

Happy "half" birthday, sweet girl! Mommy and Daddy love you so much and are so incredibly blessed to have you in our lives.






Things you are doing at 6 months old:

-you can sit all by yourself! Mommy and Daddy have to stay close by because you will topple over, but every day you are able to sit for longer periods of time without support.
-you are eating solids 2 times a day. So far you've tried carrots, sweet potatoes and squash. Squash is your favorite and you aren't too fond of the sweet potatoes
-you suck your thumb all of the time
-you are always happy and very content
-you love Bailey and smile and laugh whenever she walks up to you
-you enjoy sitting in your high chair
-you have to be entertained all of the time... otherwise you get bored and just lay there and suck your thumb.
-you have been "swimming" twice and seem to really like the water.
-you've been on your first boat ride
-you've traveled to 5 states in your 6 months of life
-you've been on a plane
-you are wearing 6-9 month clothing
-you are in size 2 and/or 3 diapers
-you roll over from your tummy to your back and it's nearly impossible for us to keep you on your stomach for tummy time
- you want to be on the move so badly, but haven't quite figured out how to crawl... you will push with your legs and face plant- it won't be long, though!
-you love to stand... with support, of course!
-you don't have any teeth breaking through yet, but you drool ALL of the time and you chomp on everything!
-you have the cutest little leg rolls we've ever seen!

6 month stats:
weight: 14 lbs 6 oz (10-25%)
Height: 25 in (25-50%)
Head Circ.: 16 1/4 in (25%)

You did fabulous at your doctor appointment. You received one oral vaccine and two shots. Last time you took the oral vaccine with no problems, but this time you put up a fight and made it difficult for the nurse to administer the vaccine to you. The nurse also had to give you a shot in each thigh and you only cried for about 5 seconds and stopped as soon as Mommy picked you up. You always do so wonderfully at your appointments and I am so proud of you.

Avery, thank you for bringing so much joy into our lives. We love you, little Monkey!!
