Zoey - 6 Months

Six months.  Half a year.  I just don't know how this is possible.  I'll just sit here in denial and weep about it while I tell you about my sweetheart.

- Her six month well check-up is tomorrow so I will have to wait to post her exciting growth stats.  My hope is she's around 14 pounds.  To compare, at six months, Cam weighed 15 pounds 12 ounces.

Update on growth:

Weight: 13 lbs 13 ounces (10th percentile)
Height: 25 inches (23rd percentile)
Head Circumference: 16 inches (11th percentile)

The doctor was so happy with her growth (especially compared to last time) that she printed me out a picture of her growth chart because she said it was so "beautiful."  Ha!

- Wears some 3 month and mostly 3-6 month clothing.  I've tried dressing her in 6 months stuff just to get some new things in the mix but she swims in them.

- Continues to be happy, happy, happy, smiley, smiley, smiley, and chatty, chatty, chatty.  She smiles with her whole little body - especially for Ryan.

- Hair continues to grow a bit more on the top and is starting to fill in a bit on the sides and back.  She has a lovely bald strip in the back from sleeping.  Her eyes baffle me daily.  I'm clinging to calling them "dark hazel" - especially when I see and compare the color to a truly brown-eyed baby.

- Is a rolling pin, rolling all over the place and has discovered Camden's toys - much to his displeasure.  This girl just wants to move.

- Not crawling and I'm more than OK with that.  The past few days she has started scooting around on her back by pushing her feet against the floor.  I've never seen a baby do this in person and it's hysterical (to me, anyway).  I need to get a video.

- Sleep has been a little hit or miss lately.  Some nights she sleeps well and wakes up between 3-5am for a feeding before falling back to sleep until sometime between 6-6:30am.  Other nights... Not so much.

- Naps took a turn back to crappy town and I'm lucky if she sleeps for an hour.  Most naps are 40-45 minutes.

- Continues to hold the title of drool and spit up queen.  We usually go through three or four outfits a day.

- Greets me when picked up from daycare by squealing and grabbing my face.

- Has learned how to swipe glasses off faces and likes to lick the lenses.

- Has entered into a serious relationship with her lovey, Florence (Flo).  Give her that thing and she's immediately hugging it and smothering it into her face.  Much like her long-distance bestie Wheezy is with Mrs. Jiffy.

- Is starting to have a bit of stranger-danger and will cry if someone unfamiliar comes around.  My poor aunts just wanted to snuggle her on Thanksgiving and she wasn't really having it.

- Continues to adore her big brother and gives him the sweetest belly laughs.  Even if he just looks at her and says, "Hi, Zo Zo!"

- Loves her some rice cereal and has tried sweet potatoes, peas, carrots, pears, bananas, and prunes.  She gets pretty vocal when the spoon isn't moving as quickly as she would like.

- Is still nursing as often as we can, and with this six month birthday - we've surpassed how long I nursed Camden.

- No teeth yet but I don't think the bottom two are too far away.

Oh, Zo Zo.  You have no idea how much you are loved and how thankful I am to get to be your Mommy.  Now if you could slow this growing-up-so-fast business I would appreciate it, mmkay?

Take Luck,
