Six months old!

Half of Olivia's first year is already gone.....but oh what a great first half it was! I am looking forward to her next six months and all of the things she'll grow to do. She is such a sweet baby. I remember this being such a great age with Carter too. She is content to lay on a blanket on the floor and watch Carter play. She loves when I sing to her and when Carter tickles her. At six months she also:

-weighs about 14 pounds as best as I can guess (her weight gain has slowed down but she is healthy and is meeting her milestones so I'm trying not to worry about it. Her six month check-up is Monday)

-has been sleeping 12 hour stretches at night this past week! Woohooooooo!!

-nurses about 5 times a day and only nurses for about 10-15 minutes total. She is becoming pretty efficient and just likes to get the job done!

-can roll over both ways but hasn't done it too often

-babbles all the time and says things like dadadadada, something that resembles papaw :), and buhbuhbuh, and I promised yesterday, it sounded like she said I love you (Ah yuh yew)!

-takes two naps a day and is on a schedule for the most part when we aren't running around like crazy doing stuff

-can sit alone for a couple of seconds at a time

-has not had a pacifier in forever since she prefers to suck on her fingers, or anyone else's fingers for that matter

-has had her first airplane ride and did amazing!

-has tried oatmeal baby cereal, bananas, banana mango, and sweet potato. I think the oatmeal is her favorite so far.

-laughs loudly, especially at Carter

-does really well in church despite the concert-loud music

-still has a headful of gorgeous curly brown blonde hair and beautiful blue eyes

-loves seeing her daddy's face when he comes home from work

Olivia, Daddy and I love you more and more everyday. You are truly a joy and bring so much happiness into our lives. We can't get enough of you!
