Crosbi: 6 Months

Here we are at the halfway to a year mark. Actually, we're well past that. Crosbi is more than a week into her seventh month. I really want to blog more regularly, but I've been too busy spending time with my girl. She and I are really finding our groove and daily I'm reminded that leaving my career was God's best plan for us. I give her lots of time to play and explore our home and in return, she's pretty great about running errands and meeting friends with me.

She has such a sweet spirit about her. Mornings are my favorite. When I pick her up out of her crib, she'll typically let me hug her for a good minute or two before wanting to start the day. I can't get enough of her.

Six month stats:

*Sleeping has become really consistent. We no longer have those 11+ hour nights of sleep, but we're almost guaranteed a full ten hours. I try not to get too used to this since she's showing signs of teething.
*Weighing in at 20 pounds, 2.5 ounces and 28 inches long. Still in the 94-95 percentile for both height and weight. She's still outgrowing her clothes quicker than I can buy them. Good thing I like shopping for her!
*Eating like a champ. At this point she has tried several fruits and vegetables. She seems to be a big fan of apples, peas and sweet potatoes, but I try to mix it up as much as I can. 
*We're slowly introducing finger foods. She can eat puff cereal and has had little bites of tilapia and chicken.
*She's "this" close to crawling. She has figured out how to scoot around the house and can definitely make her way to the edge of our bed. No more letting her play on her own while I walk out of the room. It's looking like safety gates will be going up very soon.
*She's talking up a storm. She loves to say "num num num" when she's eating and while she can say "mama," I don't think she has realizes what she's saying yet, but I'll take it!

Just for fun I put together a little collage of Crosbi to see how she's changed these past few months. I can't get over how much she has changed in such a short time. It's hard to think that before the year ends I'll officially have a toddler. Yikes!

I sure do love that sweet girl.
