6 months old!!!

I can't believe Miss Caroline is already 6 months old! I wish time would have gone by this quickly when I was in high school! I say this all the time but I LOVE this age. She shows more of her personality every day and I just love watching her learn and explore. Her 6 month pediatrician appointment is on October 6th so we will know what her stats are after that. Speaking of her pedi, we just found out that she has been diagnosed with breast cancer. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.

Let's see..what's new?
  • She is sitting unassisted for longer periods of time now
  • She's sleeping in her crib now..unswaddled!
  • She actually decided to sleep through the night again last night..I hope this is the start of something good
  • I'm still making her food and she loves it..I've made sweet potatoes, plums, carrots, and green beans so far
  • I'm never making green beans again..they won't get thin enough and she refuses to eat them..we're going to stick with the store bought green beans
  • She has tried puffs and yogurt melts and she likes them okay..I think the consistency is weird to her
  • We've let her start playing with sippy cups..she puts them up to her mouth but hasn't figured out how to tilt them up yet
  • She's starting to wear some 6-9 month clothes and some of her 3-6 month things are getting too short
  • She makes a "mmmm" sound when she's hungry instead of just crying
  • She tries to grab and reach for any and everything around her
  • She sits in high chairs when we go out to eat now..we carry the shopping cart cover in the car now
  • She rode in a Target shopping cart for the first time last week
  • She's still not rolling from back to belly but she's rolling from belly to back again
  • She's starting to try to scoot and she can spin herself 360 degrees
  • I'm sure there's much more, but that's all I can think of right now
