6.5 month stats

17 lbs of pure love! That's the size of some of the Turkey's served on Thanksgiving night! Miss Brook-eyyyy weighed a whoppin' 17 lbs 5 oz. That's 75%. She's 25 inches. 25th surprise there.

She had her 6 month check up a little late due to the holidays. She did very well with her shots. Fell alseep right afterwards and even let Brett and I have dinner out. It was quick, but we enjoyed dining out nonetheless. Brooklyn's still sorting out her night time sleeping habits. She's been waking up screaming...but the last few nights we've been able to soothe her back to sleep....rocking, lullabyes and tylenol! We're getting more sleep here again. Dr. attributed the break in her pattern to be her teething, which would be my best guess, but still no teeth!!!! Despite her moments of rage which in the overall picture is very few and far between she's still manages to make us laugh smile and melt. I hear most all parents say their baby is a happy baby, but truly ours is!!!! She's so awesome!That phrase gets used all the time in our house. How can you not smile and melt when you walk in her room to find this....

She's pulls herself up and waits quite nicely for us to come find her....

We finally tried baby food last week.

Brooklyn tested out peas last which she grimaced the whole time and then this week we tried out the yellow squash, we got the same sour face.

I hope we don't have a picky eater on our hands. Brett and I are not picky at all so I'm sure she'll be just fine. Although, Brett doesn't like feeding her things that she doesn't like and keeps insisting we stick to what she likes.....Ughh, he's such a sucker for her already!!!! He keeps this up we're in for more trouble! I'll be nipping that one in the bud real quick!

Brooklyn tested out the big girl tubbie last week. She was kind of skeptical at first when she got in, but took the tub quite nicely after a few moments. Once we busted out the toys she was having fun. All those toys dont fit in her old tub as well.

hey working on Sunday? I'm scheduled for my c-section at 12:30. One of the babies is only weighing 3lbs 4oz, so there's a good chance you may see her in there (hope not, but you never know). Let me know!

Super cute! We must get together again soon. Amaya misses Brooklyn! She told me so. I swear. Gotta run. It's movie time. Later.
