6 Months Old

Ava was six months old yesterday.  If it makes any sense, the past six months have gone by very fast, but it seems like Ava has been here forever!  She has grown up and developed so much in the past six months.  Right now she is eating 6 oz. of formula 5 times a day.  We are eating 7 oz. sometimes, though.  She eats food at breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  So far she has had apples, apricots, avacados, pears, prunes, bananas, green beans, blueberries, sweet potatoes, squash, green peas, spinach, mixed garden vegetables, peaches, oatmeal, and rice cereal.  She has liked it all! Green beans are probably her least favorite.  She takes 1-2 naps a day, but she sleeps at night from about 8:00 pm to 7:30 am.  It's awesome!  Hopefully blogging about it won't jinx it!  She rolls over both ways, but loves to stay on her belly and "fly".  She can sit up by herself, but she can't pull herself up into a sitting position yet.   She also loves music, shiny things, and lots and lots of attention. She weighs about 20 lbs right now, she's growing more hair, and has no teeth yet.  She is such a good sweet baby and we are glad she's ours!

Oh, and she started talking last week.  Well, she started putting together consonant and vowel sounds.  She says either "da da da da" or "ta ta ta ta".  She will also put her lips together when I make the "mmmm" sound, but she doesn't get how to make the sound yet.
