A visit to Grandma and PawPaw's

Me and the girls decided to stay with my Mom last Sunday night. Her sister passed away that Saturday so I thought it would be a good way to get her mind off of things. While Riley was sleeping, we went out to let Madison see the horse and goat.

Happy 6 months, Riley!


Wow, 6 months?! Half a year, already! Time flies! She has gained even more personality this past month. She constantly smiles and squeals and laughs. It's the cutest thing! She's very ticklish and will squeal and squirm if you tickle her! She's started grabbing your face with both hands and pulling you into her, if you get close enough. It's really sweet! She's trying to blow raspberries and will copy you if you do it. She hasn't gotten it down pat yet but she tries so hard!

Weight- 14.75 lbs
Height-25"

-Wearing 3-6m and 6m clothes.
-Size 3 diapers
-tried real food this month. I have made my own oatmeal and started out with that. I also pureed some bananas and carrots and froze those in ice cube trays for meals. She has tried oatmeal, blackberries, watermelon, blueberries, refried beans, mashed potatoes, carrots and bananas. If we ever have anything I can mash up and give her(and she's awake), I let her try it. So far she has not liked bananas or carrots but liked everything else.
-trying hard to roll back to belly and has even done it a few times in her crib. She just won't do it consistently.
-also trying hard to crawl, as seen in the video below.

Bed at 7pm, wakes around 5 or 6am to eat and goes back to sleep. 
Wakes up between 8-9am for the day.
Up for 1.5 hours and naps an hour.
Up for 1.5 hours and naps anywhere from 1-3 hours.
Sometime she will wake up to eat and fall back asleep and sometimes she just wakes up.

I was getting ready for the day and Madison sat down and started reading to Riley. She loves her sister!
