Six Months Old Now

  • June 26, 2009 8:09 pm

Well, I can’t believe that Kira is six months old already.  Seems like just yesterday I was still pregnant and waiting anxiously to meet her.  It’s been a fun six months.  We’ve gotten really lucky getting arguably one of the easiest babies (so far!).  She sleeps great, eats great, and is content and rarely cries.  So far she’s healthy and happy and we couldn’t be more thankful.  She’s pretty cute too.  She weighs 18 pounds 6 ounces and is 27 1/2 inches long.

Update on her milestones:  she’s sitting up better and better every day but her arms are still a bit too limp to catch herself when she tips over.  It’s kind of cute to watch her tip over and just fall on her face…although that’s always just an accident because I didn’t catch her in time.  Usually I grab her and set her upright before she topples over all the way.  She’s eating 1st and 2nd foods and moving on to 3rd foods next.  After a few weeks of 3rd foods I’ll start introducing table foods.  She does really well eating rice biscuits by herself, although a lot of biscuit falls back out of the mouth and all over the place.  She can roll over but doesn’t really want to bother with it.  She hates being on her tummy, so she has no desire to roll over and put herself in that position.

She had her first official swim this weekend.  We put her in her cute little swimsuit and dipped her in the pool.  She did not like it.  I think it was her frame of mind – she’d just got up from a nap and was ready for her bottle, so getting plopped into some water outside was not really going over too well in her little head.  We got some pictures and video and that the was the end of that “first”.
