6 Month Update | Emma Grace

Happy 1/2 birthday to my sweet and fun-loving baby girl! 

Weight: 15.6 lbs (49% percentile)
Length: 25 3/4 inches (60% percentile)
Milestones:  My goodness-Emma is standing.  She even lets go of whatever she is holding on to and tries to stand on her own.  She makes it a few seconds before falling on her bottom.  She is so determined! We almost have TWO more teeth!  I can see her bottom poking through and a big "bubble" on the top.  I have been reminded that she is teething too with how crazy uncomfortable she has been.  Teething is for the birds! She has learned to wave hi and bye.  It's still a work on progress, but she knows what she is doing.  It's so cute to see those little fingers and her hands moving.
Sleep:  Another vacation this month to Texas messed with her schedule, but she is still sleeping most of the night.  She is waking around 4 am to nurse, but then sleeps until 8am.
Eating:  Holy cow!  This girl loves to eat.  She is eating food now that I cut into chunks.  She has tried so many new things and I have even started letting her eat things that I eat.  I'm still careful about what I give her though.  Nothing processed or full of salt and sugar.  She loves avocado and can easily eat half of one chopped up during lunchtime.  We are still nursing as well...almost 7 months strong!!
Favorites:  She gets so excited when Baby Genius comes on.  It's part of her morning routine after playtime and when Mommy needs to take a shower.  Lol.  She is such a goofy girl and loves to make these weird screeching noises and then laugh.  She loves touching faces and of course, grabbing everything.  She still loves to read books and will sit still and study each page as we read them.  Bath time hasn't changes and she loves to look at herself in the mirror.  She really enjoys being outside and the weather has been amazing. 
Dislikes:    Not much has changed about what Emma doesn't like.  She doesn't want to be still long enough to have her diaper change.  She is better about her car seat, but that is occasionally a struggle.  She is not a fan of her high chair.  She does not like her carseat at all these days.  It is a struggle to get her in it and she cries until we are in the car and moving.  Now that she can crawl, she doesn't like to be her chair for very long.  She does like her diaper changed when she's tired and fights us every time we try to put clothes on her.  She would be perfectly happy going around naked all the time.
Clothes:  She is in 6 month clothes and fitting into some 6-12 months.  She is growing so fast!
