Ettley is 1/2 a year old!! Where did my little baby go?! She is so happy and squirmy and we love every second with her. Here is what Ettley has been up to:
-She had her 6 month check up. She weighs 15 lbs 10.6 oz (40th percentile) and is 26.75 inches long (81st percentile). She weighs less than Adler did even with her chubby cheeks.
-She is still spitting up which we are pretty sad about. It has slowed down but it had completely stopped with Adler at 6 months so we had high hopes.
-She is so squirmy. She wants to look at everything and would rather play on the floor with toys. She isn’t my snuggly baby anymore.
-She will pull the burp cloth off her face when you say “Where is Ettley”!
-Everything goes right in her mouth no matter what it is so we have to watch her closely. She also watches us eat and if we are holding her she tries to get what we are putting in our mouth and put it in her own!
-She has tried apples and bananas and loves them both.
-When she is happy she babbles “dada” and when she is sad and crying she says “mama.” I don’t think she knew what she was saying at first but now I think she is starting to get that we are Mama and Dada and when she says that we come to her. I’m counting Mama as her first word.:)
-She is still very obsessed with Adler. She loves to watch him and he is still the funniest person to her. She likes to see what he is doing and tries to join in.
-She took her 3rd trip to upstate New York for my cousins wedding (1st was for our family reunion and the second was for Labor day at the lake)! She does pretty well in the car except when she can see us. Then she cries and wants to get out.
Ignore our red eyes!
We love our Ettley girl and we love experiencing all her 1sts! She is growing up too fast but we are excited to have more adventures with her and watch her grow! Here are so cute pictures of her:
These pictures are getting harder and harder to take!
I told you I like this pose...This isn't even all of them!
Folding her hands
I love her big eyes
She pulled all her toys onto her lap!
She always manages to roll under the bed
Her face and posture cracks me up!
Showing off her Thanksgiving outfit
We all love Ettley
