Rachel is half a year old!

Rachel is already 6 months old! She sits up, she rolls over, she talks and she is now eating cereal, bananas, peas squash and sweet potatoes! We're working on a sippy cup and she sometimes will drink water from a bottle. Often she makes a mean face when she starts to suck and realizes it's just water.

She loves her exersaucer and jumperoo at home and whenever we put her in there she will poop. We were on our way to vacation over the fourth and I put her in her exersaucer about an hour before we were leaving, hoping she would poop before we began our 6 hour car ride, and she did!

She sleeps well, she smiles and laughs a lot and people often comment on how happy she is and ask us if she ever cries! She's tiny - petite - weighing in at 13 pounds 12 ounces at her six month check up and 24.5 inches long. She's following her curve and in the 10th percentile!

My kid is so mellow and calm. Almost all of the photos we take she is just sitting there looking.

 

But I can coax a smile out of her!
