Six Months?!

How did a whole half of a year go by that?!?!?!!!
How did she go from this... this?

Officially, she's 6 1/2 months.  In the span of one week she learned to sit up totally unsupported and started babbling nonstop.  She'll say "dadadadada" "bababababa" and "mamamamama".  How'd she get so smart? 

She is also now in her high chair and able to ride facing forward in her stroller.  Too many changes for me to handle, but I don't have a choice do I?

At her 6 month appointment she was 14.13 lbs and 25 inches long.  She's in the 10th percentile for height and between the 10th & 25th for weight.  Her head is 16", which is in the 50th percentile.  Of course it is.  :)

Toes are a very big deal right now.  If she can't lift her foot to her mouth, she just folds herself down to reach them.  Whatever works! Her favorite song is still "The Wheels on the Bus" for some reason.  We still struggle with riding in the car but I think the road trips we've taken in the last few weeks have helped a lot.

I'm trying to keep up with everything she's been learning and growing into but it's kind of hard because I just want to scream "SLOW DOWN!" But we love her so so much and our favorite thing is just watching her little personality really shine as she grows.  We call her "independent at an arm's length."  We are loving [and so is she!] that she can sit up.  The world is so different now!
