Autumn had her 6 month check-up yesterday. And as usual, the Dr said she looks fantastic! :) She is now 26 inches (65th percentile) and 14 lbs 10oz (20th percentile). She gained over a pound in 2 weeks! I guess thats what fruits and veggies will do to you! So far we've learned that she LOVES sweet potatoes, applesauce and bananas. She is NOT a fan of peaches! She's starting to sit alone but when she reaches forward for something, she falls over. But we're getting there! She's getting so big! She's talking up a storm and every tells me she's going to be an early talker. I guess we'll see!
Autumn tried both last night and it went great! We've been giving her a "training" sippy cup where the spout is the shape of a nipple, not the typical sippy cup spout, and we would give her some water. She was doing well with that. We decided to try her out with a real sippy cup and put some apple juice in there. She LOVED the juice and took the cup without hesitation!
My baby girl is 6 months old today! Hard to believe! She doesnt have her check up for another few weeks but she's as happy and healthy as she can be! She's eating vegetables now and we'll start fruits in the next week! She talks to stuffed animals, her rubber ducks, Major and just about anything else all the time. She's rolling over all the time now and we almost always find her rolled over after her naps We're working on sitting alone but still have a little ways to go!
