Marjorie turned 6 months old this past Thursday. Growing like a weed and still making us all smile! Marjorie loves her stage 2 foods we started last week. She has pretty much taken to all the foods we have given her. She still doesn't really care for peas, but will eat them if I mix them with her rice cereal. Her favorite food so far seems to be squash, but she definitely still loves all fruits as well.
She still isn't quite sitting on her own, but we are practicing and she can sit for a minute before falling over. It won't be too long until she can do it on her own. We got some very cute pictures done at Sears on Thursday and some are of her sitting and I just had to be next to her and reach and grab her quickly if she started falling over. The lady taking her pictures was impressed with out well she did and how happy she is.
Marjorie still has just the 2 bottom front teeth,but seems to be working on a few more. She can still wear a lot of her 3-6 month clothes too, but I went ahead and packed them up so she can be wearing her 6-9 month clothes since we have so many cute hand-me-downs from Lillian she can be wearing.
Marjorie's personality is developing more and more as well. I think the funniest thing in the world to her is Duncan and other dogs! I swear, she thinks they are just funny looking hairy people. She just looks at him and smiles so big and then will laugh and laugh when he barks or shakes. One afternoon last week, I took her out in the backyard and our neighbor's dog, Buddy was out and he and Duncan were running up and down the fence chasing each other and barking and Marjorie had a huge giggle fit! She couldn't stop laughing. It was so cute to watch and listen to.
We will be visiting our peditrician on Tuesday for he check-up, so then we will have her stats, so I will report on those later.
Happy half-birthday to my sweet baby girl!
