My sweet little Lexie had her 6 month birthday on Tuesday. I can't believe it's been half a year already!
At 6 months you are a busy little girl. You still may not be quite sitting on your own but you can certainly move! You do your own little version of the army crawl and can get all over the place. You pull/push yourself forward to whatever toy (or piece of paper way on the other side of the room) that you want. The past two days you've briefly gotten up on your hands and knees - I'm sure at this rate it won't be long before you are crawling the "normal" way.
You certainly have the exploring things with your mouth part down and love to taste all your toys. Sophie is usually your favorite toy to play with - we sadly lost the "original" Sophie that Gigi had brought Micah from Paris so we had to get a replacement. You still like her but don't seem to like new Sophie as much as the original.
A couple weeks ago your had your first taste of solid food when you took a quick swipe of mommy's mashed potatoes. Since then we started solids this past week. So far you've tried green beans and sweet potatoes. You almost seemed to enjoy the green beans on day 3 of them and weren't too interested in your first taste of sweet potatoes today. You are easily distracted by Abby and Micah and were twisting to see them instead of eating tonight. I'd try to feed you without their distractions but they love you too much to not be a part of everything you do. I'm not a big fan of the solids stage anyway so I'm not too sad if you don't take to them. :)
You are still wearing mostly 3-6 month olds but we are starting to add in some 6-9 month things as well. Still in size 2 diapers. I'd guess based on your previous growth pattern you are about 16 lbs. We don't go for your check up until the beginning of next month (at almost 7 months.)
Happy half-birthday little girl! We all love you!
