"Six Months - I MADE IT!"

If Emma could talk, I bet that's what she would say...and this (above) is the face of excitement she would make (too . She turned SIX MONTHS old today. I truly, honestly, cannot believe that she is already one half of a year old. On one hand it still feels so new and like we're getting used to everything. On the other hand it feels like our precious girl has been part of our lives forever. And now, in just another SHORT six months she'll be one year old. Wow.

Here's a quick (maybe) update, followed by LOTS of pictures from this week and today. So, now six months old, Emma is a pro at sitting up! She also rolls from her belly to her back AND her back to her belly. Every now and then she acts like she wants to crawl when on her belly but as she gets her knees up she just tips over to the side instead of thrusting forward. Maybe next month. She is WONDERFUL at playing now and laughs and smiles all the time. She seems engaged by her toys, passes toys between both hands, will hand toys back to us, and EVERYTHING goes into her mouth. Speaking of that, she is definitely teething, but no teeth just yet. The past several weeks have been interesting trying different foods. So far, she has had sweet potatoes, green beans, peas, pears, peaches, squash, oatmeal cereal, and just tried bananas today. She seems to like everything. Only downside is that we've had some trouble with - um, shall we say - staying "regular." But we're working on it. She's still sleeping pretty good, although she's started waking up for a bottle once a night sometimes. We think it's growing spurts....although she's still a little bitty thing. We're excited to see how much she weighs at her 6-month check up on Monday. She seems so petite and compact to us.

Now here's LOTS of photos.
