This past weekend Nora celebrated her half birthday. Our sweet baby girl is 6 months old!!
Weight: 15lbs 6oz (33rd percentile)
Height: 26.5 in (71st percentile)
Head Circumference: 16.75 (56th percentile)
Nora is such a joy, I don’t even know where to begin to describe her. She is just simply full of joy and curiosity. She smiles easily, giggles at all the crazy antics constantly going on around her and spends much of her play time trying to figure out how to get her little body moving so she can keep up with her sisters. You can’t help but smile when you around her. She is so stinkin’ adorable it just melts my heart.
Her development had gone into hyper drive lately. She is rolling all over the place and has figured out she can get to things across the room by rolling to them. She is pushing up on her hands and knees and has begun rocking. She is so close to crawling it is scary. She is sitting up pretty well and can sit unassisted for short periods now. With two big sisters to keep up with it really isn’t a surprise she is trying so hard to become mobile.
We introduced solids recently and she is really enjoying trying new things. The cereal went over pretty well and she actually seems to enjoy it now! She has tried peas and sweet potatoes so far and seemed to really like both. I love her facial expressions when she tries a new food. The look of “What on earth did you just put in my month?” is priceless She already seems to be working on her pincer grasp so fingers foods probably aren’t too far off.
She had her 6 month check up today and got a the seal of “Perfect” from her doctor. We already knew she was perfect, but it is always nice to hear it from the professionals Her development is either on track or ahead in every respect and she is growing well. So much changes during this time in babyhood. They grow and develop before our eyes. This is one of my favorite ages and I can’t wait to see what comes next for Nora.
We just love her to pieces and our family truly does feel whole now that she is here.
