July 12, 2012

Ella is over 6 months old already!  For her six month checkup she weighed in at 15.7lbs and 27.75 inches long.  She is growing so fast.  It's 95% for height and 85% for weight.  Then the poor girl got thrush and went back to the doctor 3 days later to find out she gained another 1/2 pound!

She is almost done trying all the first foods and ready to move on to the next stage of foods.  So far she loves pretty much any food (she's just like her parents), except for homemade green beans!!!  She sits up completely on her own a lot and tries to crawl a bit, but really loves to stand instead.  She is starting to now learn to grab things and try and pull herself up into a standing position.  We need to baby proof the house fast!

The three of us vacationed in Cabo last week and had a great time.  Ella got to touch sand for the first time and felt the ocean on her feet.  She loved swimming everyday and had no problems when we dunked her head for the first time.  She's a little water bug!  She does so well travelling, but she was happy to be home in her own bed.
