Olivia {6 Months}

Went to write Livvie's 7 month post and realized I never published her 6 month one because I forgot to upload her pics. At least I wrote everything and took the pics when she was actually 6 months...
Six months this past Saturday and what a great month.
Livvie continues to become such a sweet baby.
She has turned a huge corner from when she was a newborn.
 We've had a big month with lots of milestones.
Livvie has been army crawling all month, and is getting really fast.
Her favorite place to go is the bathroom...why are my kids obsessed with the bathroom?
She is starting to push up on her hands and feet, so I'm sure the real form is just around the corner.

Since 5.5 months, she's been able to go from a horizontal position to sitting up.
She loves that she can sit and crawl around and be a part of the action.
She still doesn't want to miss a thing, and loves playing with her brother's toys.
Brother does not love it so much...
 Just a week ago, she started pulling her self up to a stand as well. 
It has only been a few times, but we've got the crib lowered now because this girl will probably be trying to climb out of it soon at the rate she's going.

About a week after 5 months, her two front teeth broke through. 
Just like with Jack, I had no idea, and my mom had to point it out to me.
While I love the toothless grin, seeing those two little teeth sticking out is pretty adorable.

Right at six months we started cereal, and Livvie loves it!
I was avoiding introducing solids because nursing is just so easy.
And we tried at 5 months with Jack, and he really wasn't into it, so we ended up waiting another month - and even then, he wasn't impressed.
But I should have known Livvie is her own person and would have been into it because she wants to do everything we do.
Seriously, I feel like she isn't even a baby anymore, and she's only 6 months.
Trying to not be emotional about it, but it's been a rough few days...
 Sleeping continues to be going well.
We're still at 3 naps/day: Morning nap around 9; afternoon nap around 1; late afternoon nap around 4. 
She's still somewhat of a cat-napper and 2 of the 3 naps are 45min-1 hr; with the other one sometimes being 1.5-2 hours.
We might be transitioning to 2 naps soon, since sometimes two naps are going over an hour and we have skipped a third nap a few times.

Nighttime sleep is usually from 6:30/7pm - 5:30/6am.
Livvie does anywhere from a 7-9 hour chunk, so usually waking between 1:30-4. If she wakes around 1:30/2, she will usually wake again around 4.
Still, such huge improvements, so I'm not stressed about it, and I feel pretty rested most of the time.

We had Livvie's 6 month check-up this week, so here are her stats:

Weight: 14lb, 10oz  (20th percentile)
Length: 25.5 in (35th percentile)
Head: 16.5 in (35th percentile)
Diaper Size: 2
Clothing Size: 3-6 Month/6 Month
Eating: every 3 hrs. or so; takes 5oz from the bottle when not nursing
Firsts: 2 front teeth; army crawling; pulling to a sitting and standing position
Likes: cereal, brother's toys, laughing at brother, being outside, stroller rides, bath time
Dislikes: Going to sleep (still cries for a few minutes almost every time we put her down), snuggling

Can't believe we've passed the half year mark...
