6 Months

Dear Carina,
Mommy is in a state of disbelief.  6 months ago you were a tiny little peanut with funny crossed-eyes and a cone shaped head.  Today you are curious, active, vocal, and oh so beautiful.  Mommy and Daddy feel so lucky and blessed to be able to spend our days watching and helping you grow.

Weight & height: Roughly 17.5 lbs. and 26 in.  I will update with official stats after your doctor's appointment tomorrow.  You are still in size 3 diapers, and surprisingly we have been having fewer blowouts.  Luvs, I think I may have judged you prematurely.  Your 6-9 Month size outfits are quickly becoming a bit tight, as are some of your 9 Month sizes.  How is this possible?  You just turned 6 months.  Either baby sizes are way off, or you are quite the little chunk.  I'm going to go with the former ;)

Eyes & hair: Your eyes are getting darker and darker as your hair seems to be getting lighter and lighter.  Daddy thinks you are going to be a little brown haired brown eyed Italiana, but I just don't know, seeing as how in a few new pics your hair looks slightly blonde.  I am so happy it has started to come back in.  You're no longer my bald bald baby.

Milestones: You enjoyed - and I use the term "enjoyed" loosely - your first solid foods!  We have learned that peas are not your favorite.  They either end up on your chin, your bib, or around the room (projectile-style).  Your favorite food is currently your Daddy's finger; you just can't seem to get enough.  You've rolled over from belly to back once, and are sitting for longer periods unassisted before you face plant.

Loves: Standing and bouncing!  You would stay in the Jumperoo for hours if we let you.  Also babbling, yelling, and squealing.  All of these are music to our ears...we love hearing you practice using your voice.  Blowing raspberries is still your preferred form of communication, though.  Toys you are currently loving include Captain Calamari, Eric Carle Elephant, and you are more fond of your Wubbanub than ever. 

Hates: Your old archnemesis, tummy time.  You and tummy time are never going to be friends, are you?  We don't think you like peas, either.  Hopefully you will like butternut squash and/or carrots better when we try them this weekend.


So pretty in her romper from her Mimi (Grandma)

I can almost sit up by myself!


I am going to be so sad when these chubby thighs go away


Don't try to resist my pout

This piece of paper is more fun than posing for pictures

Face plant
