Happy 6 Months Charis!

Sweet baby girl how did 6 months fly by so quickly?  I swear we just had you!
I love this age so much and think the last month has been the most fun yet!  You are starting to really develop your little personality and your Daddy and I can't wait to see you grow into your own little person:)

So what have you been up to this month?  
You have really started chatting a lot this month.  You are constantly saying mamamama and dadada.  I know it doesn't mean anything yet,  but it is so nice to hear:)  You love to giggle and blow raspberries and it is pretty rare that you just sit silently! 

You are such a great sleeper - you take 2-3 naps a day for 1.5 - 2 hours and sleep 12-12.5 hours at night.  That being said this week between teething, your 6 month growth spurt and having a wicked cold you've been waking up around 5am every morning starving!  Mommy is secretly hoping you go back to 12 hours soon, we've been spoiled by good sleep!  

You are still rolling both ways and have started rolling to get to where you want.  The other morning I went to get you and you had rolled over and pressed your mobile to turn it on.  I came in and  you were just laying under it watching it go round!  You also can sit up pretty well on your own.  You tip over every once and awhile, but over all I can leave you on your own for pretty long periods!  You are alway moving! Even when you're on your belly you start flapping your arms and legs around as if you're trying to figure out how to get moving somewhere!

You still have just 2 teeth on the bottom, but I have a feeling it won't be too long before we see some more!  You are chewing on everything.  Right now your favorite things to chew on are your Sophie, and a mesh feeder with an ice cube in it.  We also started you on solid food last week and I have to say for all the begging you were doing for our food, you're not overly interested in yours!  You tolerate apples, pears and sweet potato, and you really do not love carrots and rice cereal!  You're too cute when you eat, after every bite you pop your thumb in your mouth and suck your food down.  It's too funny!

You are taking 4 - 7 ounce bottles a day, and you do best drinking them in your room, otherwise you are just too nosey to care about eating!

You are growing into the sweetest little girl and your Mommy, Daddy and brother love you so much!  We all just light up when you are in the room!  

We're looking forward to the next 6 months and watching you grow!
