6 Months

This chick is half a friggen year; CRAZY. 
 This month brought a developmental spurt for sure:

She's sitting up on her own .. for like 15 seconds max & then topples over, but hey, she's so close!
She's thisclose to actually crawling; she'll get up on all fours and just rock back & forth. She's definitely got the whole "army crawling" thing down though, we had to start baby proofing the house this week!

 She celebrated her first Easter

 She got an entire play area right in the middle of our living room;
coffee table out, Cam's play mat in :)
She can literally roll around this little area for hours & be so happy

& figured out who her best friend for life is going to be.
Weight: 14 lbs
Height: 25 inches; still tiny & still growing right on point :)
Diet: Still nursing about 5-6 times a day & slowly cutting out her nighttime feedings, YAY! We've also attempted quite a few solids (apples, avocados, bananas, peas, rice cereal) but she doesn't seem to be a huge fan of any of them, YET.  Our doctor said to just keep trying a little everyday & eventually she'll get the hang of them.

Sleep: 9:30 AM: 40 min - 2 hour nap in crib
1 PM: 40 min - 2 hour nap in crib
5 PM: 30 min - 1 hour nap in crib
9 PM: bedtime & she'll usually wake up 2-3 times in the night fussing but then fall back asleep within 20 minutes

Milestones: Can sit up on her own for like 15 seconds
Almost real crawling
Army crawling EVERYWHERE
Tried apples, avocados, rice cereal & peas
Hated apples, avocados, rice cereal & peas
Says "ba ba ba" or "da da da" on repeat when she's really into playing with one of her toys
In her 6 months of life she's watched; Sons of Anarchy, Dexter, Bates Motel, American Horror Story & Breaking Bad.. Chris & I just realized this list of shows we've binge watched since having Cam & got a little nervous HA. But seriously when you're a new parent, in the dead of winter, Netflix becomes your new best friend, if it already wasn't ;)
Favs: Rolling around on the ground with all of her toys
The remote control, our cell phones & basically anything else that she always sees me or Chris holding
Being nakey
Sitting at the dinner table with us, preferably on Chris' lap
Laying in our bed
People watching

Not So Favs: Getting her diaper changed
Getting dressed
Being buckled up in her car seat

Mommy's Fav: her awesome faces :)
