Happy 6 months, Lexi!

Lexi had her 6 month well-visit checkup on Wednesday.
17.2lbs (75th percentile)
25.5 inches long (45 percentile)
She is growing well and is such a happy baby!

Lexi rolls over very quickly from tummy to back, but still hasn't rolled back to tummy. I really think she could do it if she wanted, but she has zero interest in that. She sits supported, and probably will be on her own before too long. Loves to stand!

She is grabbing anything she can get a hold of, and seems to have a special interest in getting my hair or lips. She gurgles, coos, and squeals all day long, and we can really get her laughing too.

Lexi has started splashing during bath time, reaches for us to pick her up, and cries when we walk away.

Her interest (and quick acceptance)  in new foods fascinates us, as we are used to having a timid and picky eater. :)
It is so neat to watch her start to interact with her environment. To rub her sweet hand along Daddy's face, squeak a toy, reach and grasp Natalie's hand, or to run her fingers through my hair.

My favorite time with her is still nursing her right after her evening bath, before bedtime. She snuggles in for warmth, and the closeness just puts a lump in my throat every time.

Happy 6 months, sweet girl. You are loved.
