Six Months Already?

Ok so technically Shelby is 6.5 months now, looking back how can it possibly have been six months already?

This past month Shelby has learned so many things, from crawling to giggling all the time. She has also started making tons of funny sounds and loves to laugh at herself or shriek at herself in the mirror.

We don’t have 6 month stats yet, but I weighed her yesterday (6.5 months) and I got 17 lbs. I think she is about 27 inches long.

We are still slowing introducing her to solids, she doesn’t have solids every day yet. She isn’t really interested in eating food yet. we are still breastfeeding and she also refuses to take a bottle. We have tried a few times and she just turns her head.

Shelby loves to sit and play with toys. Her favorite toys are those that light up and make sounds. She also loves to be entertained by people. talking to her, playing peek a boo and watching you clap or sing.

She can sit up by herself and this past week has learned to lean forward to get onto her stomach and crawl. She army crawls and can move quickly on her tummy. She is fascinated with cords and outlets… time to baby proof things!
