half of a year
This girl of mine is half of a year old! 6 months, 180 days? That sounds so long ago yet feels like a month. She started rolling over on her tummy the beginning of this month and now she rolls over back and forth and on her actually 6 month b-day she did a plank and got on her knees. She sits up but after awhile she falls to the side. She also grew her two front bottom teeth. Luckily she hasn't used those teeth to bite me. She's started on baby food including sweet potatoes, apples/strawberries, and bananas. Of those 3 she prefers sweet potatoes. Last weekend she had her first bike ride and loves being outside. When we're hanging out in our backyard she loves to stare at the moving palm trees. Tomorrow she goes to the pediatrician for measurements and vaccines. Many people today at church mentioned how much she resembles Levi. During the day I sing to her, read, sign, talk, play, and feed her. Peek-a-boo gets her to smile, signing the ABC song helps her to stay still so I can change her diaper or put clothes on her, and her soft "whoobies" aka blankets comfort her as she sleeps. Macie is a happy, easy going baby. We love her like crazy! Macie weighs 18 lbs (85%) and is 27.9 inches (98%). Her head circumference is 16.7 inches. Her dark newborn has fallen out and her hair is definitely light. Her cradles cap is 98% gone.
6 months old. What a big girl.
