Stella Monroe :: 6 months ::

 It is SO hard to believe that it has been 1/2 a year since you were born! You apparently love to grow up as you won't stop and you seem to be doing things faster than your sibs ever did! Please slow down! 

You weigh 14 lb 10 oz and you are 25 3/4 inches tall! You are in the 50th percentage for both of those!
- You are wearing 3-6 months and will be for a while I bet! Size 1/2 shoes!
- You are in size 2 diapers!

- You sleep about 11- 11 1/2 hours at night.
- You nap about 3 times a day. Anywhere from 20 minutes to 2 hours!
- You nurse about every 3 hours, sometimes more in the evenings!

- You have started using a sippy cup and get the idea!
- Food wise, you just aren't into it. You like to put food in your mouth and like baby puffs. But baby food just isn't cutting it for ya! Practice, practice, practice.
- You biggest milestone was getting your first tooth just a few days before you were 6 months. Since then you have gotten another (bottom two front).

- You can scoot and roll - and will scoot anywhere except forward. You are also a spinning machine!
- You can get up on your hands and knees and rock!  You move your legs like crazy but can't figure out your arms yet! Which is JUST fine by me. Momma is NOT ready for another mobile child in the house.
- You sit great for minutes at a time! 

- No baby sounds yet!
- You have found your voice even more than before and can be quite loud!
- Your jumperoo is still is your best friend if you are in a good mood!

-  Speaking of moods - you are still a happy baby majority of the time. But lately you have wanted to be held 24/7 and if we dare think about setting you down, you cry or scream. The second we pick you up, all smiles. Stinker.
- You like sitting in your highchair and "eating" with us!
- You probably love your brother more than your sister at this point! He can make you laugh and smile the most! Though sister is a close second!

- You are constantly move and have strong little legs! You like to go.go.go.
- You've started reaching for people!
- You like to grab everything and put it directly in your mouth!

- You wake up super happy from naps and it is pretty easy to make you smile! Just smiling at you makes you smile!
- No stranger danger yet but out of everything, momma is your favorite. And I am just fine with that!
- Evenings are definitely your worst time of day! You think life can be pretty rough if we don't entertain you for every second!

- Your night time routine is to nurse and then top you off with a bottle! You normally go to bed awake, stick your thumb in your mouth, and away to night night land you go!

Happy 1/2 birthday sweet girl! We love you!
