I'm only putting this here because I can't access my hosting via normal FTP. Once I get that working, this will disappear. Not that anyone notices...

6 Month Izzy

Six months has gone by so quickly! I remember every month of pregnancy seeming to take forever and then, suddenly, she was a week away. And then she was here! And now she's three times heavier than when she was born. WTH. I miss my tiny baby!

She's so much fun, though. Lots of spitting and giggling and babbling and now hand-clapping. She likes to clap my hands to get a different sound, sometimes.

I love when Chad gets home and she goes bananas for him. She's always SO excited to see him and just loves to play with him. She's definitely gonna be a Daddy's Girl.

We took her to a Tornado game last weekend. NOT on her list of Favorite Things To Do With Mommy and Daddy. She cried every time we tried to sit down with her, after the first goal. She's gonna have to learn to like hockey, though, because we need to go to games.

It's been a while

Izzy is 6 months old. Hooray! I should blog/journal more about her but I find myself thinking I don't have the time.

She's sitting up with help and likes to dive headfirst towards toys. We bought her a Jumperoo because she loved using her cousin's a couple of weeks ago and that thing has been AWESOME. She's happy for as long as I'm willing to leave her in it but I try to keep it to less than 30 minutes at a time. I don't want her to be so into jumping that she never wants to crawl. I know crawling isn't the most important development but I do think it's something she needs to do.

I started giving her cereal at 4 months and would give it to her every couple of days. I didn't want to push it if she wasn't really needing it. I started veggies and the occasional fruit about a month ago and she loves everything. So far, anyway. Peas seem to give her gas so I guess I'll hold off on them for a while. It's a shame. I really liked that she loves peas as much as I do.

She babbles constantly. It's a lot of 'dadadada' and 'mamamama' and 'EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEtttttthhhhhhhhpt!' but when she gets sleepy and I'm walking around with her, she whispers to herself. I have a feeling she really is talking about something because her noises are all over the place and she'll stop and giggle.

She's just over 17 pounds... only gained about 1.25 pounds in two months so she's definitely slowed down. She's tall, though. 95th percentile! I bet she'll be lanky like Ben... :)
