Again I blinked and Alexis is already over 1/2 a year old. This year is going by so fast.... too fast.
Alexis is now right at 16 lbs. You were 15 lbs 14 oz last week at your '6' month appointment last week. You can still wear your 3-6 month clothes and are wearing your 6-9/6-12 month clothes as well - meaning we have tons of cute options for you to wear right now! You wear a size 2 diaper and 0-6 month shoes.
You are my best eater yet. You usually eat between 2-4 ounces of baby food twice a day. Neither Abby nor Micah liked eating nearly this much. You also really love your baby mum-mums. We just started trying puffs two days ago. You haven't gotten the hang of those yet as they usually get stuck to your hands and are harder to get in your mouth.
You started sitting up and crawling 2 weeks ago and have mastered both pretty well in the past week. You are getting to be a fast crawler when you want to be. I'll leave you on your blanket with your toys in the den and you came crawling after me into the kitchen. You recently also started pulling up on the couch and that also came with a first boo-boo when I wasn't close enough to catch you from hitting your head as you fell down after pulling up.
Last week was a rough sleeping week for you but it seems to be getting better thankfully. You are trying to decided if you want to go from 3 naps a day to 2 naps so it varies how many you take a day right now.
You used to babble quite a bit but lately you've been much more quiet. I think it must be because Abby and Micah are so noisy all the time and you just sit and take it in watching their every moves. I kinda miss your baby babbling. You do say a lot of "mmm...mmmm....mmm"' but that's pretty much it for your babbling recently.
You are a very easy going baby - everyone says you are just so sweet and content. Daddy claims you are easier than the other two. The ladies and the gym rarely have a hard time with you either. You do give the sweet ladies at Church a bit of trouble some Saturday nights but it's generally nap time during service time and you don't always want to sleep and miss Bible class.
I still can't believe how 'big' you are already. I feel like I blinked and all the sudden my tiny baby was gone. You are still incredibly sweet and I love every precious second though.
