6 Month Update

Anne turn 6 months old last Wednesday.  It's been a busy week for her.  Her Grand-papa's birthday was on Tuesday and her papa's birthday was today.  I can't believe that a half a year has passed already.  It's gone so fast.  The 6th month was a big month for our baby girl.  My sister is an excellent photographer and she captured some great pictures of Anne.  It was such a nice day that we took the photo shoot outside.  She just loves to be outside.

Anne got a new cousin this past month.  Little Austin James was born on March 20th.  I think they are going to get along great.

Weight: 13 lbs, 3 ounces (25%).  She has doubled her birth weight.
Eating: She is still nursing around the clock.  We have started introducing solid foods.
So far:
Thumbs Up: sweet potatoes, green beans, applesauce
Thumbs Down: Oatmeal, spinach, avocado

We have to try some new foods and introduce these again.  They say that a baby can try a food up to 8 times before they like them.
Sleeping: She still doesn't like to take a daytime nap.  Her sleep pattern has been all over the place this month.  Some nights she will sleep really well and then other nights she will be up every 1-2 hours.

* Still no crawling, but she loves to stand.  We try to practice tummy time more often but she still doesn't really like to on her belly.  If I put her down on her belly, most of the time she will immediately roll over.

* She can now sit all by herself for a short time. 

* Anne got her first taste of the great outdoors this month.  Our little October baby has never seen the world without snow and without being bundled in several layers. 
I swear we love her more everyday.  I am so glad that I am blessed to be her mommy.
