As much as I've been trying to enjoy every minute and stage that these past 6 months have brought about, I have to say that I still think it's gone by WAY TOO quickly!! On Thursday, Ms Emma turned SIX months. She's on the verge of crawling, currently backing it up quite well :) She loves to babble...she's picked up a little scream that we're thinking she's learned by mimicking the neighbor's dog. How sad is that?! Her room is next to the side of the neighbor's house where the dogs hang out and over the weekend we were able to match the dog to Emma's scream :) Still super cute.
She's enjoying food very much, and salivates when she sees us eating food (which makes me feel bad!). She's growing quite a bit, growing out of clothes left and right, mainly due to her length not so much her belly size (more on that below).
Her feet and toes have become her new fave toys. She loves being on the changing table and just hanging on to her feet, or once she rolls over on the ground, pulling them up to her hands. When she's wearing loose fitting pants, she's always hiking them up and kicking her legs about.
Emma's really good about playing by herself, which is a big blessing for me :) Gives me time to do a little something like a post, wash dishes, or whatever needs to get done.
We had her 6 month check-up on Friday and her current stats are:
weight: 13.2 lbs
height: 26 1/4 in
head circ.: 16 1/4 in
Doc was not satisfied with her weight gain over the past 2 months...made me feel like a bad mommy :( I feel like she's eating so much! She's actually increased the amount we feed her int eh bottle just over the past 2 weeks, which I thought was a plus..showing signs of growth. So we're supposed to increase her cereal and veggies quite a bit... which is leading to LOTS of spitting up. I feel like her tummy is just doing what it can but it's just small! I mean, it's not like she didn't gain ANY weight...she seems healthy. it's a little frustrating, but I'm trying to just do what I can and go with what she gives ques for. Figure that's all I can do.
AND NOW...on to the pics! Of course, we took some pictures on Thursday. here are some of our favorites.
Had to get one of her playing with her feet for Nani! :)
she really wasn't in to smiling all that much - she was making sounds, and here she is doing that
...it was such a nice day we decided to go outside for some...
My beauty ;0...sigh...
Here are the rest of the photos, if you have an hour or so to browse :)
