6 months

Since Selah's 9 month appointment is this week... maybe I should write her 6 month update

From October 4th

Height:27 inches (81st percentile)
Weight: 21 pounds .2 ounces (99th percentile)
Head circumference: 16.75inches (42nd percentile)
There is no getting around this. The girl is big. Some (her mother) would call her gargantuan. The 99th percentile in weight is only because you can't go any higher. She is super strong and is very active. Sweet Selah has been crawling on her hands and knees for almost 3 weeks. She started to pull up to standing while we were in Wyoming and has perfected that move. In Wyoming she taught herself how to tripod and that quickly moved to sitting up. She never had any major falls backwards like her brother did.

Selah enjoys eating solids. I started her on rice cereal two weeks before she turned 6 months because she stopped sleeping through the night. She likes to eat her fruits and veggies mixed in with her cereal and not by themselves.

Selah loves her brother and wants to be right next to whatever it is he is doing. The majority of the time Ephraim loves it and it doesn't cause a lot of problems. She is usually smiling, but can get really mad if you leave her alone and she doesn't want to be. She snuggles, but only when she is tired - otherwise she wants to be on the move.

These next pictures happened after our doctor's appointment. I went downstairs to switch out the laundry, leaving Ephraim at the table coloring and Selah in the family room playing with toys. I found this...

Gotta love the posing.
