6 months!

Dear  Chloe,
Yesterday you turned 6 months old! You are now closer to being a full year old than you are a newborn, how did this happen so quickly? You have changed so much this month. You really interact with us so much more than before. If you see something you want you grab for it. Yesterday morning you saw me eating my Kashi bar, I guess you wanted it because you grabbed it and shoved it in your mouth. In fact, lots of things go into your mouth these days. We have started offering you a sippy cup with water and you have gotten pretty good at drinking out of it. You love to play in your exersaucer now. You love to hear the music and interact with all the different toys. You are so verbal. You make all kinds of sounds, sometimes it sounds like you are saying dada. You are really good at rolling over when you want, and getting better at sitting up.

Nighttime is still not the best. Still not sleeping through the night, but last night was better, so I remain hopeful. You nurse once at night still.

Your hair has gotten so much longer. That bald spot in the back is starting to go away, and in some spots there are little curls. Your eyes are still a pretty blue. You weigh 11 pounds 7.5 ounces and are 24 inches tall. You wear size 0-3 months and some 3-6 months finally! Still no teeth, sometimes I think they are coming in but no sign of them yet. You are starting to get some chunk on your thighs and arms and it's so cute!

You are such a happy baby. Whenever someone comes up to you and says hello you smile so big. Most of the time you are pretty go with the flow. We've been traveling to North Carolina a lot recently and you do really well in the hotel rooms and on the drive down.

You still eat every 3 hours during the day. You are so curious about other foods, it makes me excited to start solids with you. I never can tell if you will nap good or not.  Sometimes you take nice naps in the crib and other days not so much. I will also add you love looking at yourself in the mirror, you laugh and think it's the best thing ever.

These past 6 months with you have been wonderful. It's hard to remember life before you came, because it's so much sweeter now. I love being your mom and I love you so much sweet girl.
Love always,
