Natalie Grace- 6 Months

Our sweet Nonni Girl turned 6 months on the 17th!

6 Month Stats:
14lbs 7oz- 25%
25.5in- 40%

She is our Sweet Pea, Little Lady, Love Bug, and Angel Baby.
She LOVES to give wide open smiles and kick her arms and legs out when you look at her. And if she wants you to look at her again, she'll make a little cackle/cough sound and then get so excited when that does the trick of getting your attention.

This month, she got her first tooth, and the second little bottom one is not far behind!
She's also been doing a lot more tummy time and really trying to reach for things when she's playing. Sweet love will try so hard and then start to cry if she can't get what she's reaching for. It is the cutest, saddest, girliest little reaction! And Ryan is usually quick to the rescue with whatever it is she's reaching for. ;)

She has transitioned into one morning nap and usually a long afternoon nap that's anywhere from 2-3 hours. Occasionally, she'll do one last cat nap in the evening and typically goes down for the night between 6-6:30. Sweet girl loves her sleep!

One of my favorite things about her right now is the way she gets so excited when you go to get her from a nap or see her first thing in the morning. The excitement on her face and the way she kicks her arms and legs out is precious!

She also tried food for the first time this month! She gets really excited about putting whatever it is in her mouth, but then doesn't really know what to do with it, so it usually all comes right back out and then she tries again. This month she tried bananas, blueberries, and tomatoes.

Here's a recap in photos of her past month!

Our last morning in Maine, getting ready to drive to the airport.

Handing out, waiting for her second flight!

First bath with her big brother!

Eating her first food!

Wearing my dress from when I was a baby!

Laughing with Aunt Gigi in the mirror

These two fell asleep together- sweeeetness!

I came down with an rough 24 hour virus this month and this little sweet pea was either teething or fighting off her own little bug- so the two of us snuggled and slept while her brother napped and daddy came home to the rescue.

This was my little dress too :)

Smiles for Papa!

Playing with Ryan!

This was the morning that Ryan brought his "friends" into Nonni's crib and introduced her to all of them. :)

Saturday morning play date! Pretty soon, she'll be sitting up with the big kids!
