Our Six Month Old Baby

Grandma Z. crocheted this gorgeous dress. The lovely blue color is perfect for Jocelyn's eyes.

Our baby turned six months old this week, so we had another visit witht he pediatrician and another round of immunizations. We also opted for the flu vaccine since Little Miss goes to daycare and next week we will battle the whole community for an H1N1 vaccine. She weighed in at 15 lbs 8 oz (40th percentile) and is 26 inches tall (60th percentile). Her head is 43 cm (70th percentile).

We've had some fun "milestones" this week. Jocelyn finally decided that she wanted to roll in more than one direction, so now she is rolling all over the room. She started sleeping in her crib in her own room (I cried, she didn't). And she tried baby applesauce yesterday and loved it.

In her beautiful new crib. I was afraid the giant ladybugs would give her nightmares, but so far she's slept soundly

Here are some more fun facts about her.

  • She constantly drools
  • She likes to pet the cat and the cat lets her
  • She wakes up jabbering every day
  • She takes at least two naps a day and sometimes three
  • She eats 5-6 oz of formula every 3 hours and 2-3 oz of cereal a day
  • She laughes when I click my tongue at her or when I say "dadadada"
  • Her favorite toys are her stuffed pink poodle Pup-Pup and her plastic bear rings
  • She likes to fall asleep holding a burp cloth in her face
  • She likes to be swaddled and likes her binky when she sleeps
  • She adores being sung to
  • She can be entertained for a surprisingly long period of time with television

Last week we had visits from both grandparents. It was our nephew Haiden's second birthday, so Justin's family came down for that. My parents came up to help my brother with a home project. Here are some pictures of these adventures.

Trying on her sealing dress that Grandma H. made. She's sitting in her Bumbo Chair and can't resist the urge to constantly eat that flowing layer of organza.

I love both the dresses. The crochet one is so cute, wish I knew how to do that. The one mom is making will be perfect for the temple. How adorable that Joci loves the organza! Glad she isn't scared of her lady bugs. :)
