Happy Half Birthday Audrey!

my six-month-old baby girl is so full of smiles and laughs.  bubbles and "raspberry" sounds.  fluffy redish-blond hair and lovely baby chub!  we are so happy to have this little one in our lives and continue to joyously watch her grow.  here's what audrey is up to lately:


  • rolling over from tummy to back and back to tummy
  • doing a bit of wiggling while on the floor--she's not staying in one spot anymore
  • loves to jump in her jumper
  • laughs (we know where all of her best tickle spots are)
  • eating solids--rice cereal mixed with mashed fruits and/or veggies (bananas are her favorite by far)
  • sitting up by herself for a few seconds at a time
  • loves helping mama turn the pages in her board books (after gumming them awhile)
  • has two sweet baby teeth on the bottom front
  • has quite a length of wispy hair with some untamable locks on top =)
  • is sleeping a 6-8 hour stretch at night
  • the sprinkler startles her, but i think she'll take to sitting in the pool (once we get it put out)
  • smiles.  all.the.time!
  • napping about 3 times each day, but has yet to have a consistant nap time or length of nap

at her well-child exam, audrey measures at:

  • 17 lbs., 10 oz.
  • 27 1/2 inches long (90-95%!)
