6 Months Old

That's right, folks! Our little Gracie Pie is half a year old now!! She has her 6 month check up this week, and she is an impressive 18 lbs, 8 oz, and 27 inches long! STILL in the 90th percentile for her age. She is wearing 12 month clothes, and I'm really hoping that lasts awhile!

She is eating 3 different veggies now, and tried bananas for the first time last night. NOT a big fan yet. I know she will be tho! I am, like I've mentioned before, making my own baby food, and freezing it in ice cube trays. Each cube is about a tablespoon of food, and, right now, she is up to 2-3 cubes at a time, 3 times a day. I have been mixing it with a splash of cereal mixed with breast milk so she is getting all KINDS of good stuff in there! She is nothing short of a RAVE NOUS eater! Just like her sister was. We sure love our food in this family!!

Gracie is rolling both directions now, and starting to get up on her knees. I would guess crawling no later that mid October. But I think that is a generous estimate! She wants to chase her sister SO BADLY!! She is also sleeping in her crib now, and sharing a room with Ashy. Ash is not too impressed with her when she wakes up in the middle of the night, but thanks to Dr. Ferber and his sleep training methods, we are working on this.

Gracie is more and more beautiful everyday. And HAPPIER! She is SUCH a happy baby!! I cant wait til she develops more personality! (If that's possible!)

Speak of the devil! Guess whose up from her nap!!

I made all of my own baby food too. So easy to do and so rewarding. My youngest was also in 12mo clothes at 6mo. She is really tall. She is now 3 1/2 and in a 5T.
