6 months old!

Eliana is 6 months old today!! At 6 months she can roll over both ways, sit up, giggle, and say the sounds "kh", "gh", "t", and "ma", though she is best at "kh" and "gh". She sleeps from about 8 pm to 8 am, give or take a half hour on each end. She's eating three meals of solid foods daily and has had avacado, pears, bananas, sweet potatoes, and rice cereal. She usually nurses before each meal and has 4-6 oz of formula after. She also has a bottle before bedtime. She can feed herself a bottle and is not picky as to which formula she drinks. Ellie puts everything in her mouth, including her feet. She thinks chewing on her toes is one of the funnest things on earth. As of the last few weeks, she doesn't like baths, but does like seeing herself in the mirror all wrapped in her towel after the bath. She is a very smiley girl and is a delight to us. Happy half birthday, baby!

I don't like to pick favorite pictures, but the first picture on this post is a wonderful shot. I love the expression on Eliana's face. Nice birthday shot!
