6 months old!

Emmy is 6 months old! It's crazy how the time flies! I still feel like I just had her! She is eating veggies, fruits and cereal now (she had applesauce yesterday and today and LOVES it!). She can sit up by herself and is putting her feet in her mouth. She started grabbing at her feet a few weeks ago, but just today she discovered she can actually put her toes in her mouth! I was getting ready to put her in the bath when she started doing it so I had to run and get my camera to take some pics. I thought it was so cute! Also, on Mother's Day we were at my parent's house and she started pushing her face into the ground and going up on her toes, it was totally funny! And Emmy helped Jake make me breakfast on Mother's Day. It was so cute I had to get a picture of it!

She had her 6 month check-up this last week and weighs 16 lbs 4 oz (65th %) and is 25 1/2 inches long (50th %) so she's slowed down a little in her growing, but she's still a total chunker!

So, I've been checking Emmy's gums a lot lately just to see if any teeth are coming in. I was kind of waiting for her to get fussy with a runny nose and red cheeks but it never happened. But last week I was just rubbing her gums and I felt something - it was her first tooth! It's her bottom left one. Let's just hope she doesn't start biting me . . .

On a sad note, Emmy's been sick :( We took her to the doctor and found out that she has croup. It's so sad! I didn't get much sleep last night - I'm hoping tonight is better!

She's doing so good!! She will soon be on her hands and knees, based on that picture of her face in the ground. That's how Audrey started! So glad to be your hero:)
Emmy is adorable!

Better watch out she'll be crawling soon. She is so cute. I am sorry she's been sick. Isn't it the worst when your kids get sick? Hope she gets better soon.
