6 months

Bailey turned 6 months on December 5th. That is the same day as her Grandpa Rick's birthday. It's kinda fun that she can share her half birthday on his birthday! She had her 6 month appointment on that day and she sure is a tiny little thing! She weighed 12lbs 6oz and was 23 3/4 in long. She is in the 5th percentile for weight and 10th percentile for height. She is so petite and dainty and I love it!! Even though she is little she is go getter and wants to be and act bigger than she is! She does a scoot/crawl and can get anywhere she wants to go and she does! She is into everything! No more little toys or papers can be on the floor because she immediately sticks everything in her mouth! Her favorite things are paper, magazines, napkins and my phone. When she sees any of those things she is a magnet to them! She started pulling herself up on furniture a couple weeks ago. Thankfully she hasn't started walking around on them yet! Every time I go to get her out of her crib she is standing up in it now. She looks so funny doing it because she is so tiny! I love her to pieces! She is always so happy!! She will smile at anyone who gives her attention! She loves her big brother Nate and loves it when he pays attention to her! She is funny when it comes to baby food. She prefers the veggies over the fruit...kinda weird! Her favorites are squash, sweet potatoes and carrots. She has never refused them! Sometimes she is good about eating bananas and other fruit medleys but she sometimes wants nothing to do with them! I have fed her oatmeal with mixed fruit out of two different jars and both times she has thrown up all night! She must be allergic to something in it. I am thinking its the wheat grain because that was just about the only difference between the oatmeal with mixed fruit and just mixed fruit. I have been scared to feed her anything else with wheat in it because its so sad to see her throw up and be so sick! She brings so much joy to our home and we love having her as apart of our family! I have been so blessed with the two sweetest kids and love them with all my heart!!

Bailey is in love with the dogs! Anytime she sees them she heads straight for them! Max stays outside all the time now except when it rains so here she is with him one day when it was raining.

Just hanging out
