Half Birthday

It's hard to believe that Kennedy is already 6 months old. The time has really flown by, and yet, it feels like she has been a part of our lives for longer than just 6 months.

She is doing great with solids and hasn't met a food she didn't like. Except for peas, but really who can blame her, peas are disgusting. We are up to two solid meals a day and sometimes a snack in the afternoon. She absolutely loves lemons! She likes to gnaw on a lemon wedge and doesn't even seem to be phased by the sour taste. Her pediatrician said citrus is ok and suggested I give her some clementines.

She can sit up on her own now, which has completely changed her world. She loves to sit and play with toys and prefers the toys of the noise making variety. She is lunging herself forward as if she wants to crawl, but so far hasn't started moving yet. Olive is very enticing and I think she will learn to crawl by trying to chase down that puppy.

She sits in a high chair when we go out to eat and you can tell she is enjoying every second of being the center of attention. Last night we gave her a plastic wrapped fortune cookie and it kept her busy through the entire meal, banging it, crushing it and squealing at it. Packages of crackers have proven to be just as entertaining.

Kennedy has such a sweet, happy and calm personality and we are enjoying how easy it is to take her we know this is going to get more difficult as she becomes more independent!

Her 6 month stats and percentiles:
13.1 lbs, 8%
25.8 in, 60%
16 in head circumference, 10%

She is having her 'official' 6 month pics taken next week, but here are some recent shots of her:
