6 months

E turned 6 months old on the 17th of November. A half a year already?! TOO FAST!!
At her 6 month well check on November 27th, E was 15 lbs, 16 oz and 26 inches long.
She is wearing 6-9 month clothes and size 3 Huggies diapers.
E is still nursing every 3-4 hours. We started solids on her 6 month birthday. Her first food was avocado and she LOVED it!
We're getting into a better napping pattern. E usually naps once in the morning and takes a long nap (approx 2 hours) in the afternoon. Sometimes she'll take a catnap before her 6pm bedtime. She loves her nighttime sleep and wakes up between 6-7am the next morning.
This month E got really good at getting her knees up under her. She does a push up with her arms, and then pushes forward with her legs and flops down. She'll rock back and forth on all fours and CJ says "E is dancing!" Ha ha! Not yet, son, but she'll be crawling any second now. So between rolling her "push up flop" E is very mobile. 
This month was also fun for us because E seemed to REALLY "come out of her shell". Remember how I had described her personality as serious?! Now our sweet girl is smiley almost ALL the time! And the way she crinkles her nose is adorable! :)
E LOVES her big bro, and I'm so glad that CJ is starting to enjoy having a little sister. E watches everything CJ does and really likes playing trains and trucks with him. 

This month you went to the Pediatrician for a cold, MOPS childcare, the Aquarium, Zoo, Safari Park and Sea World. I wish I could put this next half of a year into "slow motion". Everyday I try to think to myself that "this is the youngest my children will ever be" because everyday you do something new! We love you E!
