Half Way to One Year

I can hardly believe that we're already half way through Tinkerbell's first year! When people tell you that your child's life flies by, they are NOT kidding! We had her six month checkup today, including two regular shots and the flu shot (resulting in a very fussy afternoon - boo for shots). She weighs 15 pounds and is 25 1/2 inches long - right on track, but she's not what you would consider a big girl :) What she lacks in size she makes up for in personality! She started talking constantly, which I love - it's nice to hear a response after feeling like you're talking to yourself for six months! She is sitting alone like a champ, and is really starting to explore on her own. She grabs everything within reach, and immediately puts it in her mouth. These things have recently included my grocery list, both R's and my nose, her own toes, and, unfortunately, Scruffy's tail (don't worry, he escaped before she reached her mouth). She is just starting to push up onto her knees and try to scoot around on the floor, which is hilarious. She can only go backward so far, but it's a start :) Her new favorite playing position is laying sideways, propped up on one elbow (also funny to watch). She's eating two meals of solid food a day, and loves sweet potatoes, butternut squash, applesauce, bananas, and pears (I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a kid who isn't picky!) Here are her six month pictures - I have a few more that I'll post soon, but they deserve their own post :)
