These pictures were made on Shelby's 6 month birthday last week. Her doctor's appointment wasn't until yesterday so I decided to wait to do her post. A lot happens when you turn 6 months old! It seems as though she has hit some major milestones lately which have changed up our routine. Here are her stats:
~17lbs 3oz (75th percentile)
~25.5 inches (50th percentile)
~She is still breastfed and seems to be doing great. Though, my frozen stash is dwindling so we will have to start using some formula on the days that I work.
~She loves eating solid foods. I feed her a fruit and rice cereal in the morning (banana, peaches, apples) and vegetables and oatmeal at dinner (green beans, sweet potatoes, carrots, squash). The only thing she hasn't liked are peas, so we will try them again in a few weeks.
~She is sitting up
~She has transitioned to two naps a day; morning and afternoon.
~She usually wakes up around 6am ready to go. I think she gets that from her Daddy.
~She goes to bed at 7:00 or 7:30 and is usually up around 12 midnight to eat again
~She is incredibly flexible and very good at going with the flow
~She will grab something off of the table or out of your hand before you can even blink!
~She still puts everything in her mouth (but no sign of any teeth)
~Sometimes, I think she is saying 'hi' to me
~She gives the biggest smiles to Claire
~She likes to be outside and enjoys watching the dogs run around
~Her hair is still a topic of conversation to most strangers
~She will grab your face or hair and almost give you a hug
~She likes to sit or stand most of the time
~When you carry her, her arms are always straight down and almost reaching back
~She kicks one leg like she is starting a motorcycle (according to my Dad)
~She went to her first Auburn game last weekend
~She can now sit in a high chair at resturants (with the cover, of course)
~She does not like the church nursery
~She is a precious child
~She has a very sweet nature and loves being with her family
