Baby Growing Up

The longest shortest time is right.

Six months ago my baby fit in the crook of my arm and now I can barely contain her on my lap.

She can crawl and laugh (a big, joyous laugh, sometimes for no reason) and she loves to eat. Sweet potatoes, strawberries, peas with mint, and carrots so far.

She has stood for three minutes with barely any help from me.

She loves going out places and staring at whatever is in the room. IKEA, Target, and the Mall of America mostly. Also, SO MANY restaurants. (We have about as much time and energy for cooking now as we did before she was born, unfortunately.)

She’s very alert and interested in her surroundings. She falls asleep by 8pm and starts waking up at 6:30am.

I think she’s really smart.

She doesn’t like pacifiers. Instead she sucks her tongue. She keeps it between her lips. Sometimes she moves it around so I know she’s hungry.

On Tuesday morning this week she woke up blowing raspberries for the first time. On Monday, she woke up knowing how to crawl.

I think she must dream about growing up, and she’s excited to get to it first thing in the morning, like it’s her job.

She’s six months now, wearing 9 month clothes. She is generally in the 80th percentile for her size among babies nationwide. I think she is the perfect size all the time.

She’s teething now and has one tooth, at the bottom in the front.

She is a very sweet person and I love her very much!

    My clip "Mr. Bouoqgles&njat; by Jerry Jeff Walker is taken from our "owned video", "The Arlo Guthrie Show." We have the rights to this show. However, from what I understand, WMG, just bought the publishing. What a shame, I don't think Jerry Jeff is going to like this. He had 85,000 views. I hope this problem can be resolved.
