6 Months Old Already!

Though Bennett actually turned 6 months last Friday (while we were in Peoria) - we are celebrating today with another routine doctor appointment. She weighed in at 16 lbs 12 ounces this morning and was 25.5 inches long....which is in the 75th percentile in weight, and 50th in length! She is really growing like a weed and exploding with personality!

I know that every mother thinks her child is the best and brightest, but I know that my little girl is! She can say one word (da da), can rollover, and sit up for a minute or two by herself. In addition, she is reaching for her bottle, and is really trying to communicate with us by imitating our sounds and concentrating on the silly faces we make. She is such a happy baby, and when she gets excited or laughs, she does so with her whole body. She kicks her legs, waves her arms, her eyes sparkle, and she smiles with her mouth wide open.

Happy Birthday, Bennett! What a great picture. She's really beautiful!

Totally understand about the flight thing - you feel like everyone is looking at you when they start crying. :(
