6 Months

Today, on 11-11-11, Finley Marie is 6 months old!! What a great day!!!

Not sure of your height and weight yet, you have your 6 month doctor appointment next week, but I can't wait to see how much you have grown!
You are still in size 3 diapers, size medium Bum Genius diaper. While we are home I'll slap a cloth diaper on you :)
Wear mostly 9-12 month clothing
Your legs are crazy long so a lot of your pants are too short
You still sleep pretty well. The last week or so, you were waking up twice during the night but I think it's because you are rolling so much now and you'll accidentally roll onto your back and you aren't quite sure what to do. You aren't real graceful quite yet :)
Bedtime is still 7:30ish and you will wake up for the day anywhere from 6:00-7:30am
Still taking 3 naps a day. A 45 min around 9:00am, then around 12:00 you will "hopefully" take a 2 hour nap. And then a 45 min one around 4:30pm.
We started giving you some food a few weeks ago. We started with sweet potato and you have also had green beans, peas, squash, zucchini, apples and pears. I would have figured that after doing this food thing for a few weeks that you would get the hang of it, but you really have no interest in eating. You love playing with the spoon but as soon as I put the spoon up to your mouth, you clinch those lips so tight. It's not like you don't like the food because once it's actually in your mouth you like it, but again, not a huge interest. However, I'll let you suck on a real apple and you LOVE that, so maybe you will just be one of those babies that's not a huge fan of baby food...ugh :)

You still nurse every 3 hours or so and definitely have no problem with the bottle now! You even take the bottle from the ladies at church, yay!!! :)
The days of you napping on mom and dad's bed is about over. You roll all over the place and now if I leave the room I have to make sure you are strapped to something, ha!
I'm trying to get you to practice sitting up, but you aren't that stable yet. We'll get there.
You are also getting up in the push-up position but not even close to crawling yet.....thank God!! I'm not ready for that yet.
You aren't as scared of strangers anymore. You are pretty comfortable with whoever now.
You will be making another trip to Colorado soon and I'm sure you will do just as great as you did last time.

We love you pretty girl and CANNOT believe you are half a year old already...sheesh!!!

We will have to get the little girls together when you come to CO. She will seem like a toddler next to skinny Ella!!
