Arlie- 6 Months

I figured I should give an update on how Arlie is doing.  She turned 6 months this week and it has been crazy!

Arlie is about 16.5 lbs now, which puts her in the 56 percentile.  She is also 27 3/4 inches long, which puts her in the 99 percentile.  Apparently she got her daddy’s genes in that regard.  Lucky girl.  She is growing like crazy and is a BUSY little girl.

She can sit up on her own unassisted and loves to go from sitting to standing with a little help.  She found her voice at about 4 months, but man she uses it a lot now.  I’m talking screeching and yelling at the top of her voice.  She is a crazy baby sometimes and really enjoys hearing her own voice.

She has started some solid foods.  So far she is a pretty big fan of bananas and pears.  Apples, peaches, avocado and sweet potatoes are pretty good.  Carrots are a no.  She seems to really enjoy eating.  She does this adorable thing with her mouth when she watches us eat.  Its like a fish mouth opening and closing.  Its hilarious.

She is on the verge of crawling.  She gets up on her hands and tries to get her knees under her so I don’t think we have much longer of a stationary baby.  I’m kind of terrified for this.

Shes a giggler and a smiley baby.  She’s almost always happy, which is amazing.  I seriously can’t believe it has been six months.  I am just so lucky.  I keep saying it because I really truly believe that  M and I are so incredibly lucky to have such a wonderful baby.  She truly is the light of our worlds.
