This month was FULL of many firsts and milestones!! We can't believe this girl is already half a year old. The time has just flown by!
At 6 months Lucy:
~ took her first trip to Utah to visit her uncle, aunt and cousin. She spent 11 hours in the car and did really great! You can read more about that trip here.
~ slept through the night for the first time on August 15. She's done this several times now but not on a consistent basis.
~ keeps herself entertained pretty well
~ had her first solid foods on August 17. So far she has eaten rice cereal, peas, and sweet potato with no problems. Butternut squash and avocados are a no go right now, but we'll keep trying! You can see more on her first feeding here.
~ cocks her head to one side when she smiles really big. Seriously one of the cutest things!
~ is SO happy when you go to get her from her crib after sleeping. One of the best parts of my day :).
~ sat up!! She officially sat up on August 20 (my brother's birthday).
~ is still wearing 3 month clothes and size one diapers but I think we'll be moving into size 2 diapers soon.
~ has mastered grabbing objects and reaches for everything at her eye level
~ takes two longer naps and one catnap in the evening. As of late she's no longer taking that little nap.
~ likes to be outside a lot more now
~ loves the jumperoo that friends let us borrow
~ is very alert and really studies faces
~ she bobs her head back and forth when she's laying down and really tired or when she hears music all of a sudden playing. We still need to get some video of her doing that.
~ definitely needs a toy or something to keep her busy when she's on the changing table. This girl flips and moves around so quickly!
~ loves to make all kinds of noises
~ also loves it when you make any different noise.
~ laughs at her sister a lot. These two are the cutest together!! We can't wait to see how their relationship develops. We hope they grow to become close and great friends to each other.
Lucy, you have added so much joy to our family and every day you grow and change we see little bits of your personality coming through. Even for the little amount of sleep you get you are still one happy little girl and we love it! You are very squeezable, cute, joyful and we couldn't imagine our lives without you. You have changed so much this month and as fast as these 6 months have gone, we're trying to take in every sweet moment with you as such a happy baby. We love you baby girl! Happy half birthday!!
More of her 6th month pictures to come :).
