6 months

It is amazing how much this little one has changed...even just in the past month. She has quite the personality and is just so stinkin' much fun!

She loves to babble/talk/blow spit bubbles/grunt like she's filling her diaper (even though she isn't). She can be quite loud when she wants to be.

She loves to grab her toes...and many times will pop that big toe right in her mouth! 
She has the best disposition & is rarely fussy. If she's upset, there's a reason - aka messy diaper/hungry/tired.

She's better about being around strangers...for the most part. She still sometimes gets upset if there's too many people around her that she doesn't know. Like in my older daughter's classroom when all the girls were crowding around her. Kinda freaked her out & she started wailing.

She loves to try and grab hair, my Coke, my water bottle, my necklace, whatever. She still hasn't quite figured out how to get those hands to work how she wants but she sure is trying. 
She got her first tooth just 2 days after turning 6 months old. She has mastered rolling over & seems very eager to crawl. She is a very observant baby & loves to watch & study everything. 

She loves her mobile & little music/aquarium thingy in her crib. She loves to be sung to. She also loves stuffed animals so we were sure to ask Santa for a Fozzie Bear puppet for Christmas :)

She loves to lift her legs way up & slam them down when she's in her crib. Her big sister used to do the same thing. And now she can wiggle around a bit which means finding her in her crib like this...
I decided to get one of those breatheable bumper pads because she was getting her legs caught in the crib slats. So far I'm really happy with it. It's a lot less bulky than a regular bumper & very easy to wash.

She's a spitter-upper but thankfully {for the most part} she's not as bad as her big sister was. Now there was a super spitter upper!
She weighs just over 17lbs and for the most part wears 6-9 month clothes although some are a little big on her & some of her 3-6 month clothes still fit. Just depends on the maker of the clothes.

So far her favorite baby food is bananas...just like her daddy :)
I wish time would slow down just a bit. We're just having so much fun with her :)

Isn't so unfair that these little ones grow up so much faster than their older siblings?! My littlest just turned 5. I wish it would slow down. He has been so fun. Addie is such a cutie!! Oh how I miss all that baby stuff!! If you figure out how to slow them growing up down, let me know. :)

What an adorable little girl! I remember hearing all about the miracle of her coming to be and how much she was wanted and loved before she even joined this world. I can't believe she's six months already!! Merry Christmas!!
