Some more 6 month photos and Things I Know

Things I know about Elly:

  • She's getting better and better about sitting up on her own! If she tips to one side in her high chair, she's pretty good about straightening herself back up.
  • She wants to put everything into her mouth!  
  • She is still very social and happy. Riding in the car, she'll jabber away, interspersing her commentary with some pretty good belly laughs. And she smiles at everyone her looks her way.
  • She's not crawling, but has gotten really good at twisting and spinning herself around to get where she wants.
  • She is very good at entertaining herself, but if Mommy is in the room, she will undoubtedly protest if she's not being held!
  • We're working on being gentle when grabbing at Mommy and Daddy's faces. She seems to be listening when I explain the difference to her, and she's working on understanding.
  • This girl LOVES her Daddy! She always wants him in her sight and is full of giggles and smiles just for him!
  • She and Crabby have such a good time in the bath. Occasionally she'll stick her toe in the faucet (I let the water run during her bath) just right so that water sprays out everywhere!
  • She has figured out how make the "ma" sound, but its use it still very rare.
  • Her bedtime routine starts around 7pm. It's a bath and lotion, pjs, story from Daddy, nursing, and bed. I'm trying to get her to fall asleep in her bed instead of at the boob. She usually stays asleep for a couple of hours and we can soothe her back to sleep. Some nights she still ends up in our bed, though.
  • She likes to try to drink water from our cups. I'm trying to teach her how to do it with the cap from one of her bottles - I'm using it as an Elly-sized cup. I'll help her drink from it, and then let her try it on her own. So far, it just ends up upside-down with water everywhere, but we'll get there!
  • She's a big eye-rubber when she's tired. It is SO cute.
  • When she has something to say, she wants you to HEAR it! Her babbles can get rather loud and excited! I love her enthusiasm :)
  • She's still very good in the car. She just talks to herself until she falls asleep. It's really helpful on long car rides!
  • She is a short napper. Unless I am holding her, in which case she will literally nap for 3 hours. I LOVE the long cuddles, but sometimes I have to pee!
  • She is so fun and sweet. I love, love, love her!!
