SIX months! Almost seven oops!

This post is incredibly late and I apologize. I haven't been busy really, but just kind of putting it off!

I can't believe Molly is half way to her first birthday! It's so exciting for us. While I love the baby cuddles, Tyler and I also can't wait to see more of her personality, walking, and talking! Month six has been so much better than the in-between stage of months four and five. She is a lot more 'independent' now. When we get up in the morning I can set her down {with her boppy behind her because she will still tip over every now and again}, give her some toys, and make my breakfast {or take the dog out, start laundry, etc}.It's great until she gets on her belly and rolls across the room. I have officially had to put up DVD's and video games because those were quickly becoming her favorites. I just had to put up the cord that goes with the playstation controller. Anything is up for grabs and ANYTHING is going in her mouth including wait for it.... the dog's bone!

Six month milestones...

- Having solids three times a day. {Yogurt for breakfast, fruit for lunch, and veggie for dinner} She pretty much loves it all!
- Starting with puffs for a finger food. She is working on it. Still figuring out how to go from hand to mouth!
-Around 25oz total of formula for the day. 3 7oz bottles and a 4oz bottle either before or after her morning yogurt.
-One little tooth popping through. Not totally yet it's like it has stopped so, hopefully it will finish soon.
-Rolling ALL over the place. She will surprise you and end up on the opposite end of the room.
-Sleep. Hmmm..well, she gets about 10 hours in and then back to sleep for a few more. 6:30pm-4am-ish and then back down until around 7am-ish. About once or twice a week she will wake up in the middle of the night to eat, but then goes right back to sleep. Luckily, this is only happening a few times a week for a while it was almost every night.
-She can sit up in the shopping cart now. YAY! That's the best. I never thought that would be one of the most exciting things because I don't have to bribe Tyler to go to the grocery store with me every week ;)
-Always smiling, has a big ole laugh and it's our favorite. We are always trying to make her laugh!
-She is wearing some 3-6 month clothes, 6 months clothes, and she is starting to fit into her 9 months clothes.
-Her weight (if I remember correctly) was 15lbs and some change - which is under the average, but the pedi wasn't worried. She is also under the average for her length- again nothing to worry the pedi.
-She TALKS a lot. In fact, after her bottle at 4am this morning she started just talking to herself and since she is in our room, for now, it woke Tyler up and he went to sleep on the couch! ha! She talks and squeals it's the cutest thing. She does {we're like 99.9999% sure} say da-da-da-da-da-da-da. But, we aren't convinced she knows what she is saying.. so hopefully, 'da da' to Tyler happens soon because....


While neither one of us wants to be away from each other and Tyler is really having trouble thinking about being away from Molly from so long, but I need to find a job before Tyler gets out of the army. It's going to be hard, but that's what frequent flyer miles and skype are for right!? At least he is only 1600 miles away in America and not deployed! We are excited and so is our family.
