6 months old!!

Kate is 6 months old today! I can't believe it, time has flown by! I don't know how she does it but Kate gets more and more precious every day. Kate is really working on crawling. She can turn herself in a full circle and go backwards but moving foward is much more difficult. She can scoot forward using her head and dragging her body along but it is very tiring so she does not attempt it very often. She has almost mastered sitting. I still have to be close by because she still topples over from time to time. She is eating solid foods regurlarly. She really likes everything so far but her favorites are pears and carrots. Her favorite things to do are to shriek and blow rasberries. She has also started to babble but mainly prefers to hear herself make loud noises. She is so curious and tries to grab everything especially my hair! Anything and everything goes into the mouth so we have to be very careful. Kate is an extremely happy baby and usually has a big smile for everyone she sees.

We went to the doctor today and Kate weighs 16 pounds, 7 ounces and is 27 inches long. I am so thankful for my sweet little girl and I can't wait for the next 6 months!
