Six Months

Quinn is six months old! Plus some...this post might be a little late :) We have been flying by the seat of our pants a little bit this last month. Life with two full-time jobs, a part-time job, a baby and all the other life responsibilities is tough, and when we do get some down time, the blog is not the first thing I want to tackle. Usually I fall asleep on the couch instead.

Anyway, back to the six month update. Quinn is getting so big. At her six month well check she was 16 pounds (50th percentile) and 26.75 inches (just about 90th percentile). Sleep has still been a bit of a struggle this month, but things are starting to turn a corner - I hope I didn't just jinx myself. We are still experimenting with giving you solids, learning what you like, and when to feed them to you.

Last month you were just beginning to sit, but now sit very well independently. You still love standing and you can stand holding on to things by yourself for a few seconds at a time. Instead of using your legs and feet to push forward, you have been using them to turn yourself in circles. You also like to be scared. At first you get startled, but then you laugh hysterically. Your babbling is beginning to sound more like real words, and you love chatting it up with people.

We celebrated Easter in Pittsburgh...it was quite a trip. Your dad got the flu and the two of us decided to make the trip at the very last minute. You were so good in the car! We continue to be so blessed with such a well behaved baby. You are happy and funny, and have begun to like to give hugs.

You are still happy going with your babysitter each day and you love playing and reading before bed with both your mom and dad. This past month we started "playing soccer" and you love it. You are also enjoying your exersaucer, stacking cups, and anything you can put in your mouth. This month has already brought big changes (more on those in the hopefully timely seven months post) and we look forward to everything else as you continue to grow!
