Here she is at her check-up waiting for the doctor to come see her.
- Eating vegetables. So far, she's tried peas, green beans, carrots, butternut squash, and sweet potatoes. Green beans are her least favorite right now, but she will eat them. I recently started fruit with her. She's only had applesauce, and seems to like it.
- Sitting up. She can sit up for several minutes straight without support. This is really nice, because we can put her in a high chair when we go eat, and she likes to be able to sit and not be crammed in her car seat. This skill has also come in handy when I take her to the store, because she can sit in the front of the cart and look all around or play with toys while I shop :)
- Becoming more and more aware of her enviroment. I went into her room the other day with her on my hip to get something, and she started crying a little because she thought I was going to put her down for bed (she had just gotten up from a nap not long before this). As soon as I left the room, she was fine :) I did this twice to see if that was what had made her upset, and she did the same thing both times.
- Giggling and laughing more everyday. For the longest time, you had to be hysterical to get good belly laughs out of her, but now she's letting loose with the good laughs more often.
- Continues to squeal, yell, fake cough more and more.
- Continues to put whatever she can get her hands on in her mouth, and she will wiggle or move to get that little something to put in her mouth.
- Does not like having something taken from her that she is enjoying in her mouth, and will tell you about it...not that I blame her :)
- Loves to be sung to, and really likes the songs that have motor movements to go with them.
Okay, that's enough. I just keep on thinking of different things she does now, but I don't need to go overboard :)
This is what happens when you cough with a spoonful of carrots in front of your mouth.
This picture was taken on her actual 6 month birthday, so I had to include it. Just sitting up on our bed playing with toys.
