EVR: Six Months

Lizzy turned six months old on Sunday.  Time is flying at warp speed.  Here are her stats:

Height:  28 1/4" (97%+)
Weight:  18lb 12.5 oz (92%)

  • She is still the smiliest girl I know, though we have yet to get a good laugh out of her (still!).  She is certainly a girl, though, because she can turn rather serious rather quickly.  
  • She's sitting up all by herself...all the time.  Lying on her back is a drag, so if not sitting up, she prefers to be on her belly where she can push herself around backwards around the room.  Yes, she's already somewhat mobile.  Yikes!
  • Her hair is coming in thick and still as blonde as can be.  
  • And those eyes?  Still blue.  
  • She continues to be enamored with anything and everything W does.  Perhaps that's why she can't quite seem to ever get away for a good nap.  This girl can't nap to save her life!  
  • Nighttime is tricky, too.  But we're working things out.  
  • I have learned that tickling the back of her neck and shoulders sometimes does the trick of calming her down to sleep.  It's like instant relaxation for her.  
  • She's well into the "everything must go in my mouth" phase.  In fact, right now, she's sucking on my arm/shirt.  
  • She loves pears, peaches, applesauce, whole bananas and sweet potatoes.  We even sneak in some bread, too.  
  • She loves to chew on Sophie the Giraffe's leg.  
  • We love the few hours of time she and I have together each week while W is at preschool.  It's so fun to play with this little girl.

Wow, Elizabeth really looks like you did Katie, especially the first two color photos. It takes me back, what a pleasant memory!
She is beautiful, just like her mommy!
Love you!

Sigh. She's lovely. Aren't baby girls dreamy?

Look at her in her ruffly top. Adorable.

Seems bizarre that she's 6 months already...because that means my little gal is almost 18 months!! Warp speed, indeed.

The "everything in the mouth" stage...blerg. I think my kids are in that stage forever!! Currently, Blair's favorite item is chalk. She gets irate when I take it away. Eeeesh.

Dear Sweet Baby Lizzy: Oh you precious little girl. I want to hold you RIGHT NOW! Please, will you just show up at my door...you can even come alone. I won't tell your Mom or Dad or big brother. I will feed you sugar and lots of milk (from some other mother's supply) and we will have a good ol time.
To the Mom- Katie, she is such a little beauty!

Katie-I'd whole heartedly recommend Warby Parker. At least do a home try on (or 2, like me!)-totally free and then you can get a feel for the quality and such.

Plus, $95 for frames and lenses is a pretty great deal.
