Our fatty has been growing up. She is now 6 months old today!! I can't believe it's already been half a year since I had her. I feel like it was just barely but with 2 kids, things really go by so fast. I went to her 6 month docter's appointment and she is now sitting at 50% in both height and weight. Coming from 90% to 50% is quite a change. I'm actually really glad she's tapering off. I don't think I could handle picking her up! But she's great, happy and healthy! And to add, she sleep EXCELLENT last night. From 7 pm to 7 am. This is a big deal to me since for the past couple of weeks, she's been waking up between 5-6 and staying awake! I've been altering her schedule, cutting out a nap, making her fall asleep on her own and doing solids so there has been a lot going on! So I am just hoping and praying that all this altering is fixing the problem :)
At 6 months, she is sitting up with assistance. She's eating solids just fine. Twisting all around. Grabbing her legs and feet. Almost rolling from back to tummy. Grabs things and puts them in her mouth. Babbles and laughs with Emma. Overall, she's just getting more interested in the world around her. She's much more alert and aware of us. We love her so much! I am so blessed to have her in our family. She brings such a sweet, beautiful presence in our home. Happy 6 months Kate!
I came into her room after she took a nap because she sounded distressed. I found her like this, trying to "eat" the bars of the crib. She's so silly!
Emma is trying to get me to turn on the TV. "Watch six, seven eight". LOL when she tries to say "this", it turns into "six" which she then continues the counting. She's hilarious.
She is still "Chubbs McKate" to me with those cheeks! And I have to credit my sister, Jenny, for that nickname. I love it :)
