Six Months

I can't believe my baby is half a year old! As the saying goes, they grow way too fast! So what all have we been up to?

Well, our adventure with solid foods is going pretty well. So far she has eaten most everything I have given her, except chicken noodle dinner and turkey. I think it's the texture she doesn't like, so I'm going to wait a while before I try those again. But most all the other fruits and veggies she will eat.

She scoots and rolls all over the place and is trying her darndest to crawl! She gets up on all fours and rocks back and forth, and is on the verge of figuring out how to move one leg and arm at a time. It's only a matter of time before she takes off, I just know it! :)

She also sat by herself for the first time a few days ago. She still topples over eventually, so she still needs to work on those back muscles and learn to balance herself.

She is fascinated with carpet and will lay on the floor and scratch at it for minutes at a time.

She chews on everything, but no signs of teeth yet.

She loves the remote control, my BlackBerry, and Ziploc bags (yes, we let her crumple these while supervised). I'm determined to not buy her anymore fancy toys. (kidding.)

She reached for her daddy on her six-month birthday and it was the sweetest thing. She thinks the world of him.

She has started to babble a lot. So far it's "na na na na na na na," and last night she said "da da da" a few times. It even sounded like she said "blah blah blah" a couple of times!

She went for her six-month checkup last week and checked out ok, as usual. She weighs 16 1/2 pounds and is 25 1/2 inches. Head circumference is 42 cm.

So that about sums it up this go around. I had a lot more pictures I was planning to post, but I hate Blogger with every fiber of my being and its formatting and the things it does with photos and I just don't have time to mess with it right now. I can't even make paragraphs without having to put it in "edit html" mode?!?!

Oh well, until next time...

Quick update...

...because I know you're ALL wondering, "What in the world happened to Brandi?" but mostly I know you're thinking, "It's about time for some more pictures of Macy!"

Well, a couple of weeks ago I cancelled the internet option on my BlackBerry, and right around the same time, my laptop crashed and died, so I have not been on the computer checking my email or facebook much at all since then because I'm not too thrilled about having to come use this big honkin' desktop.

But, I guess all this came at a good time and maybe it was a good thing to go cold turkey on computer/BlackBerry use because I was needing to do that anyway. I've been needing to try to structure my days more and do more things around the house and spend more time with Macy and all...

Things are looking up though as far as the laptop. Yes, I lost EVERYTHING on my hard drive... pictures, files, iTunes, you name it. I really don't want to think about it all. But fortunately we had a lot of pictures backed up on an external hard drive.. the one thing I'm mostly worried about right now is my iTunes. Gotta figure something out. Burin totally reformatted the computer and I think he is going to order another hard drive or something? I don't know. Hopefully I will get some pictures up soon though!
