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... :)
