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.
