70:365, well check
We visited the pediatrician yesterday for Fifi’s 6 month well check. She had the paper on the exam table totally crumpled and destroyed by the end of the visit. The doctor said she would have been concerned if she hadn’t done so.
Six months, it is amazing to me to watch my big girl (16lbs 9oz and 27inches long) and realize that she is half way thru her first year. The doctor checked her and asked me a few questions and said Fifers looked great and seemed to be right on track with development and growth.

Baby girl is doing things that crack us up these days. She likes to blow raspberries and hold her toes while you change her diaper. She hates to have her nose or face cleaned, but doesn’t really mind the brush running through her wispy hair. She loves to be on her tummy and will actually roll onto it if you place her down on her back. I walked away for two seconds the other day with her like that and when I came back she had flipped over and scooted her self 90 degrees to the side.

Fifi has also been scooting herself backwards and is often getting herself stuck up against a wall or under a chair.The daycare also told us that she got ‘lost’ yesterday- scooting herself backwards and into a corner. (I totally trust this place and know that the kid is faster than you would think at this reverse mode thing…)

She is getting up on all fours and rocking, smiling proudly at herself the whole time. Today she even did a little worm-belly flop thing and got herself moving forward. oh boy, we are all in for it. She is also sitting up for a few seconds at a time, until she forgets that she is sitting and topples over to her side. It’s pretty funny actually.

She loves anything that crinkles and is quite fond of how plastic crinkles in her hands. It’s funny how fast you forget to keep your glass full of water or other spillibles out of arms reach when there is a little one around. she literally picked up Daddy-O’s glass the other night and set it gently back down on the table. We have talked with O about how some of his toys are off limits for Fifi and what a chokable is and why he needs to help us keep those away from her. I think he gets it, but this whole toy age gap thing makes me a little nervous.

We have started feeding her solid foods here and there. I’m not pushing this to hard yet, but we have tried cereal, sweet potatoes and butternut squash. She seems to really like the squash. I think we will maybe do bananas and avocados next. She is really interested in whatever we are doing while at the table so I feel pretty good about starting her slowly on foods other than breast milk.

Sleep has been on and off good. I could do with out the 4:15 wake up calls during the work week since going back to sleep for an hour seems to only leave me groggier than if I would have just stayed awake. These don’t happen all the time though and she even does full night stretches on a regular basis. Overall, she is a much better sleeper that O was and I am grateful for that.
Fifi, you are such a light in our world, full of smiles and joy. We love you beyond words. Happy half birthday my girl!

    oh fifi, you are so adorable!!! and so similar to lucy. i do wish you’d teach her to roll over, though. she’ll pass along her secrets for sitting for long periods of time.

    oh momma, i’m so glad to have found your blog – so sweet. xo
