six months.

Dear little Emma,
Happy half birthday, baby girl!
I can't believe you are already six months old.
Time is seriously just flying by.

The past month has been full of firsts,
Milestones left and right.
You are growing and changing so much
And with each new month, each new phase you enter
I think I couldn't love you more.
But life with you just keeps getting better.

At six months old, 
You are sitting up on your own!
You're trying oh so hard to crawl
and I know it won't be long until I need to lock up the cabinets.
You've got the rock and scoot thing down but
still find it easier to just roll to your destination of choice.
No matter what, you're never still for very long.

You've moved to the big girl tub,
had your first of many pool trips to come
And just last weekend, you had your first beach trip!
{which deserves it's own blog post!}

You are very serious at times, and a little bit bashful.
You seem to evaluate new people, places and things
before you decide to flash your pretty smile!

You are 13 pounds, 8 ounces
and 24 1/4 inches long.
10th percentile for both, little munchkin!

You're wearing size 2 diapers.
3-6 month, 6 month and some 6-9 month clothes.
We re-started the solids up a few weeks ago
and now, you have no problem
and have loved everything we've given you. 
Apples, bananas, sweet potatoes, carrots, peas, rice, pears and prunes.
Looking back now,
I think your rash you developed last month
was the result of teething.
You cut your first tooth this month
And the second tooth followed right along.

You started to sleep through the night
and teased us with a whole couple weeks without waking
until it stated up again.
We are currently in process of getting you back in your groove.

And, just to keep it real, here's an outtake
 from the approximately 100 photos I took in about 15 minutes.
That's spit up on the onsie, a wrinkled six month sticker from being eaten,
and those are "I've had it!" fake tears.
It's tough being six months old :)
