Chloe, it's November 28, 2010 and you are six months old today!
We go to the doctor on Wednesday, December 1. I'll update your height and weight then.
You are such a big girl. You are napping in your crib now. I lay you down and you fuss for about five minutes and then fall asleep. Staying asleep is another story. Your naps are only about 30 minutes, but I'm sure, like everything else, you'll work it out. You've led the way for most of this journey.
A quote from last month: "You have still not started solids but we are going to try rice or oatmeal cereal on Sunday! No veggies or fruit until 6 months." I'm eating my words. You were soooo ready for solids. You didn't spit anything back out; you just started chowing down...so we decided to try some fruits and veggies. You have eaten sweet potato, pears, apples and carrots. You eat them in the evening around 5:30 and you only have a tablespoon.
When you are eating, we give you sips of water to wash it down. We have learned that you like to drink out of a cup like a big girl...no sippy cups for you!
You have both your bottom teeth now! They are so cute but very sharp!
You now sit up without support. and can stay that way for about 30 minutes. You love to play with your shape sorter cookie jar.
You also like to put lots of weight on your legs and with our help, you stand. It was so strange. Every day we tried to get you to put weight on your legs. One day you were curling up into fetal position when we tried and the next day, you put all your weight on your legs. You literally learn things overnight.
You had your first family holiday experience.We went to Duncan, OK for Thanksgiving! More on that later...
