6 Months!

Our baby girl is 6 months old today!

I can hardly believe how fast 6 months has gone! Although we haven't had her 6 month appointment yet, we know that Jordyn is about 26 inches long and weighs about 16 pounds. She is just starting to grow out of a few of her 3-6 month clothes and is getting into some of her 6-9 month clothes. :) She is still her in Size 2 diapers, but we are already prepared for Size 3.

Some of Jordyn's favorites at 6 months...

*Jordyn loves to roll ... and she loves to roll from one end of the living room to the other (we usually have to stop her before she gets to the hardwood floor).

*One of Jordyn's best friends is the cow on her exersaucer. She loves this toy, and I am afraid that she plays with it so hard that it might break off!

*Jordyn loves books ... especially her 2 new books about Elmo!

*Jordyn loves to eat! She loves vegetables and fruit. (Veggies are by far her favorite though!)

*Jordyn is working really hard on sitting ... she is getting close!

*Jordyn is far from crawling, but she can put herself up on her knees, put her butt in the air, and scoot.

*Jordyn is really starting to pay attention to Gizmo. She reaches out to touch him every time he gets near her. He doesn't really care to have his fur pulled by her though!

*Jordyn loves to be tickled. Her giggles are absolutely hilarious!

*Jordyn loves when her daddy dances and sings for her.

*Jordyn loves the workers at her daycare. She smiles so much at them when I pick her up at the end of the day. Makes me feel good that she is being well-taken care of.

Some of our favorite things that Jordyn does ...

*We love listening to Jordyn talk and laugh. There are some days when she doesn't stop talking ... but we love every minute of it!

*We love reading to Jordyn. Her eyes light up every time we put a book in front of her.

*We love to snuggle. And although snuggling isn't totally her favorite thing to do anymore, we just love it when she's tired and does want to snuggle.

*We can't believe how happy and content this girl is! Rarely does she cry - she's all smiles and giggles!

*We love watching Jordyn explore. Daddy often calls her "Jordyn the Explorer" when she starts to roll across the room. If she sees a toy or book across the room, she will roll until she gets to it!

Jordyn's 6 month wellness check will not be for a couple of weeks. She can't have her 6 months shots for a couple of weeks (due to the ear infection she had at 4 months, which delayed her 4 month shots). So instead of doing 2 doctor appointments, the doctor said he would just wait to do her wellness check when she comes in for her shots.

Happy 6 Month Birthday, Jordyn! WE LOVE YOU!

PS - Jordyn is also very interested in the computer keyboard ... she decided to do some typing too: y tttthhhhggbd b bbvvvv c
