6 Months!!!

Our little baby girl is 6 months today! It is so hard to believe it has been 6 months already. She has been doing so much for the past month or so that it is unbelievable. She has been crawling around the house getting into tons and tons of trouble. She started pulling up on to her knees. So much that I had to lower the crib down because I found her peering over the top! She has started veggies, green beans, carrots and squash and in the last 2 days she has started bananas. She LOVES to eat and hollers at you when you don't feed her fast enough.

She went this morning to her 6 month well-baby appointment. She is 15lbs 12oz, 26 inches long and her head circumference is 17 inches. Her doctor is happy with what she is doing gross motor wise, but we have to keep an eye on her babbling and laughing. We know she can laugh we have heard her do it, but she isn't like most babies who will just laugh at anything. We joke and say that she just doesn't find us or anything we do too funny. She also isn't babbling to us at all. She just does this high pitch screaming talking thing. It is hard to explain. Next time she does it I will have to get a video. The doctor said that if by her next well baby appointment at 9 months she isn't really babbling at all we will do some tests. She is hearing fine and turns when we call her name and startles at loud noises so I think because she is so ahead on her gross motor skills that she might just be a little behind on cognitive skills and with her being tongue tied until 3 months that might have something to do with it. But other than that she is doing GREAT and got 4 shots! She has been asleep since about 6pm so I am hoping we have a good night tonight and I wouldn't be up with her around midnight!

In the next couple of days I will post some of the pictures that I haven't posted yet. Her eating veggies for the first time, pulling up to her knees and just some other random cute pictures!
