Growing Girl

Miss Adalee is growing SO fast. It seems this last month she has grown especially fast.

At her 6 month check up she weighed 14lbs 3 oz. (15% for her age) and was 27 1/4 inches long(85% for her age) She is still my long and skinny baby. She could still wear 3 month old clothes if her legs weren't so darn long.

This is how I find my little Monkey every morning now. Standing in her crib with a huge grin! Sometimes it's a "I'm hungry cry" and then a smile. What a great way to start my day.

She sits all by herself, however she won't sit for too long- she would much rather be crawling and getting into things. Oh, and this is no army crawl or scoot.....this is full on crawling as fast as she possibly can. Such a silly girl. Sometimes she will giggle and squeal while crawling because she is so excited with herself....and it's adorable

She can hold her own bottle now, but if you hold if for her, she will gladly let go. Her Grammy insists on always holding her bottle for her so she won't grow up too fast. And we let her.....that's what Grammy's are for. :)

This picture makes me sad and laugh at the same time. This is a picture from when Adalee was sick. And you can tell she just doesn't feel good. Poor baby had 2 ear infections back to back. We survived and she is feeling much better.

She is all smiles! Such a happy baby!

This is Adalee at Thanksgiving. She got to try mashed potatoes, yams and her Gerber baby turkey. She is getting better at eating. For a while she just stuck out her tongue to try to taste everything instead of swallowing.....I think we got it now. Some of her favorites are squash, rice cereal, and bananas. We tried spinach and it didn't go so well, We'll have to revisit that one another day.

We love watching this little girl grow and learn.......but it also makes us miss our little newborn.

She is super cute! Isn't it sad how fast they grow? Sad and fun at the same time. What a sweetheart!
