6 months old!

I honestly cannot believe I am the momma to a 6 month old.

K is growing by leaps and bounds. She has mastered sitting unassisted for long stretches, rolling both ways and babbles constantly. We have heard the occasional dada or baba, but they don't seem to be associated with anything yet. She likes to turn the pages of the books as we read before bed, explore people's mouths with her fingers, watch Sesame Street with daddy in the morning and still spends most of the day sticking her tongue out. She also likes to "walk" around by holding our hands - her steps seem pretty deliberate, moving towards people, items or cats so I don't think this is just reflex.

She still isn't too interested in crawling. As soon as she gets on her stomach, she immediately rolls to her back or starts crying.
She has also picked up the lovely habit of rolling onto her stomach in bed and getting stuck. She will wail until we come rescue her. FYI for those keeping score, this is not so adorable at 3am (and 4am and 5am...)

Her official monthly weight is 15lb 3oz, so she has slowed some in the past month. The dr. isn't concerned at all, so I won't be either.

And it turns out photoshoots with enticing paper objects are much more difficult then before. This is literally the best we got:

Keira is 6 months and 2 days old
