I can't believe we are at 6 months already!

It seems like just yesterday I was posting Elizabeth's birth story, but here we are on her 6 month birthday!  When did time start moving so fast?  Poor girl had to have her 6 month shots today, but she is recovering like a trooper!  She is sitting up on her own better and better every day, when her brother isn't pushing her over (a battle he has had many time outs for.) 

Elizabeth was born with a full head of hair, but she had been loosing it steadly until recently when it seems like it has lightened up from the almost black that she was born with.  I still say she is going to be blond for a little while, but everyone else thinks we will have a little burnette.  Whatever color her hair she is sure to be a little beauty!

Although she has always been a pretty good sleeper she doesn't really get herself to sleep most nights and wakes at least once.  I think we may need to start sleep training her like we did Jason.  It always hurts my heart to hear my babies cry, but I think that putting herself to sleep is a skill she needs to learn. 

Recently we started solids with her and she doesn't really approve.  We have only done oatmeal and avocado, but she only tolerates them sometimes.  She weighed in today at 17lbs, 10 oz so she isn't hurting for food.  Unlike her brother Elizabeth wants to put everything in her mouth so I will have to watch her very carefully.  We are about to move her up a size in diapers and we may have her wearing her 6-9 month clothes soon.  She also loves to babble and I think Jeff can claim another child who's first word was Dada.  All in all she is a pretty happy baby.

  1. She is such a cutie! Katie had hair like that and is now a light brown or dark blonde depending on how you look at it. ;)
