:: 6 Months ::

And just like that half a year has gone by!

Well we are almost crawling people!  Just the other day I caught her up on all fours rocking back and forth.  I must say I'm a little nervous to have her crawling, I've gotten used to finding her in the same relative area that I left her in.  It will mean readjusting the way I do things... I guess that's always the case though!

Milestones for this month:

-She is almost sitting up completely by herself! She hasn't figured out how to prop herself with her arms yet so when she goes to reach for something she will still fall onto her stomach or back.

-She is becoming quite mobile, like I mentioned above she is showing signs of moving toward crawling pretty soon.  I can barley keep her on her back when changing her diaper, or clothing her for that matter.  She is constantly wanting to roll over, its like a mini wrestling match just to get her changed these days.

-Still no teeth we are still waiting for them to make an appearance, but I can kinda see them below the surface. She is gnawing on everything she can get her hands on, including those little feet of hers!

-We just started her out on food two days ago with some mashed avocado.  She's not quite sure what to think of it!  Matt has the video on his phone so I'll have to grab it from him and post so you can see.

All in all she is such a happy little baby!  Always giving smiles and chatting away.  These days she is doing two to three naps a day.  Her naps are anywhere from 1.5 - 3 hours. She generally naps in the morning and then again in the afternoon, sometimes though she will need another little one in the late afternoon to hold her over until bedtime.  With her going to bed between 7:30 and 8 it means we are at home a lot more in the evenings than we used to be.  Needless to say we've been watching The Office a lot these days!

Here are a couple more pictures, enjoy!


  1. She is beautiful! Sounds like she's a great sleeper for you too! What is your secret ha ha? :) Josiah used to be a decent napper but that has tanked in the past month and now it's a miracle if he takes a good nap. We are trying to train him now. Ug! So hard!

    1. Thanks Bethany! :) I think we have just been blessed with a good sleeper! I really don't feel like I have done much to train her!

  2. wow, sooo cute! i loved watching her and izzy interact. maybe he can learn some tricks from her in the area of sitting up and crawling :)

  3. She's so cute, Monica. I can't believe how big she is.
