Our sweet little girl is 6 months old today! I can't believe half a year has already come and gone since she was born. Seems like it's only been a blink. This little bee is her favorite toy, so we've upgraded her nickname to "Bumbleboo." Neither of the boys ever played with this little bee, but she loves it.
Now that she has reached the 6 month mark, we can finally get going with more baby food. She's been eating baby rice cereal for a while, but her pediatrician wanted me to wait for any others. I'm not sure if that's because she was born 3 weeks early and was tiny (5lbs 8oz), so he wanted her to get most calories from mommy-milk and formula until she reached 6 months, or if he's just conservative that way. At any rate, she got baby oatmeal today - and she really liked it. How do I know this? Because she serenaded her dinner, that's how. She likes to sing to her food. Sounds like this: "AAAAAHHHH, Aaaaahhhh, brooooooo......" and so on. The entire time she's eating. Then while she's swallowing, it sounds like this: "MMMMMMMmmmmmmmm." Very cute.
Below you can see little Bumbleboo when she petered out tonight and finally decided it was bedtime. She had such a great day, she just wore herself out. Happy half-birthday, little one. Or as my Grandma P. would have said, "Burpy Hapday."
PS: Go Gators! We just finished watching them beat South Carolina. Woo-hoo!
