Baby Bear

Lilly is now 6 months old, I can not believe that half a year has passed already. I took her in for her appointment and she now weighs 14 lbs and is 25 inches long. The doctor was so impressed with her, he said that she sits and moves and grabs things like a 9 month old. It was kind of funny because he walked in and saw her sitting on the table playing with the paper and asked if we were there for her 6 month appointment, and when I said yes, he asked how old is she and checked his chart because he thought she had to be older than that.

Some things that Little Lilly is up to these days are...

Still eating every 2 hours day and night

Cat napping...this girl has not heard of a 2 hour nap!

Sitting up on her own from lying down

Getting up on her hands and knees but not going anywhere on them

Climbing up small objects like pillows and climbing out of her carseat if not buckled

Standing with support

Rolling or scooting to everything that she sees

Puting said objects into her mouth as quickly as possible

Eating sister's homework

Getting excited when she sees Mom and sad when she doesn't

Having stranger anxiety just a little bit

Growling...she loves to growl

Aside from the not sleeping, and wanting to eat all the time, she really is a pleasant and happy baby. She just wants what she wants when she wants it, but I guess that is just what being a baby is all about. Last week I left her alone for the first time with my mom because we were going to a football game and it was going to be very cold, she took a bottle like a champ, (and while I was glad, I was also a little sad, like she didn't really need me as much anymore.) I can not believe how fast my baby is growing up!

14 lbs? Ivy was 15 lbs at her 4 month appt, so she really can eat Lilly for breakfast! :)

Your little girl is so dang cute! And such a mover, it sounds like. Ivy still hasn't rolled over yet. I can't believe it's been 6 months, either. (Ivy just passed 5 months.)

She's darling Kristy. I think she looks just like you.
