6 month appt...new high chair...peas...and random...

monday we went to bryce's 6 month appointment for her shots and check up. she did great with her shots, they didn't seem to effect her like the 4 month shots did. so, that was good. here are her measurements:
height: 27 1/4 in.
weight: 20lb 10oz
she's really only gained a pound or so since her 4 month visit, which kind of shocked us!!! :)
here lately, bryce is on the go. she wants to be on the floor moving...rolling over, creepin' (crawling)...so we have to be very careful where we put her and make sure we are watching her carefully. we recently had to pull out the high chair because she will not stay put in her bouncy seat while we're trying to get stuff done in the kitchen...she rolls out of if...here are some pictures of her trying out the high chair for the first time...





here she is rolling out of her bouncy seat...scary!!!

this is after we ate our yummy meal of peas...the face pretty much says it all...she was pretty indifferent when it comes to peas...we didn't hate em', but we didn't love em' either!


just thought these last two were cute!! :)

6 months....

Wow! our baby girl is 6 months! i really can't believe this day is here. i remember when bryce was first born and how 6 months just seemed so far away, and now here we are. i was looking at pictures of bryce today, and i can't believe how much she has changed. she is so wonderful, so much fun and such a mess. i wouldn't change one single thing about her. she is just the baby i wanted!!! enjoy the pics...








what bryce is up to these days...
  • smiling and laughing all the time...and when i say laughing, i mean cracking up so hard she gets out of breath and starts squealing!!
  • rolling from belly to back and back to belly
  • army crawling all over the place...we really have to watch her b/c she moves fast and is into everything!
  • not quite sitting up on her own yet...we're getting there though
  • sleeping through the night, so exciting!! she goes down between 6:45 & 7pm and wakes up anywhere between 6 and 7am
  • mostly sleeps on her belly, but she is a wild sleeper and moves all around in her crib and flip flops throughout the night
  • really has just now found her fingers
  • everything goes into her mouth, she doesn't discriminate
  • she loves anything electronic...remote controls, phones, keyboards, cameras and she loves other peoples fingers, she's marveled by them
  • loves music
  • absolutely hates when i change her diaper, not when brian does it, just me! she lays there grunting with her legs as stiff as they can go and just stares at me, like try it lady, i dare you. it takes forever, and we both dread the diaper change.
  • she has definitely started to show her sassy side. she has been throwing some fits here lately when she is not pleased with what's going on around her or if her food is not prepared fast enough. it makes me worried about what's to come!!! :)
  • loves her bath, but only if the water is really hot
  • loves to fake cough, which usually leads to her gagging herself. she has also mastered the fake cry!
  • i believe she is teething, but no teeth have popped up yet
  • is about to begin baby food, which i'm excited about
  • loves to watch and observe other babies and people. she'll probably have a major staring problem like her mom.
  • loves the dog...likes to pet (grab handfuls) his hair, likes when he licks her hands. he is the first one in her room when she wakes up from naps and in the morning and he is the first one to her side when she cries
  • drinks four 7oz bottles a day, with cereal twice a day, wears size 3 diapers in huggies and 6-9 month clothes
  • her favorite songs are 'twinkle, twinkle little star' and the 'ABC's'

So thankful for her and we can't wait to see what these next 6 months bring! love her!!
