Eleanor is 6 months old!

I'm really not sure how this happened, but today our child is six months old. Every cliche about flying time and such is so true. Here is my big girl... For pictures of previous months click here and here.

Here are some things she is up to:

  • Still trying hard to crawl, and becoming VERY frustrated that she can't.
  • Sitting with no support.
  • Taking her pacifier out and putting it back in 200 times a day. Also, as of today, sharing it with her toy animals.
  • Smiling and laughing a lot, especially when Mommy and Daddy get out the camera.
  • Trying to sign "all done" when she's finished eating. She just barely turns her little hand over a couple of times. She also signs "milk" when I'm putting her to bed. I'm not sure what the connection is there, but I'm probably just not smart enough to understand her complex intellect. (That's a joke.)
  • Watching Baby Einstein with intense concentration. I think she would watch it all day if I'd let her.
  • Eating a wide variety of fruits and veggies.
  • Putting everything in her mouth. (And drooling like she's one of Pavlov's dogs.)

Jared and I are having so much fun watching our baby turn into herself. We're looking forward to our visits next month from Mimi and Nana, and our big trip to Texas!

She must have been saving her smile all week for her six month pictures. She's definitely a cutie!

What a fantastic picture. And a fantastic age. Enjoy the days while you have them!

Eleanor is adorable. Very pretty little lady. I saw you went geocaching. We tried letterboxing for the first time last week, which is similar and had a blast!!! We may start geocaching and doing both, allthough if the kids were allowed to pick a "treasure" to give it might not fit in the box.

What am I supposed to read if you only post a few times a week??

Here are some suggestions...a book, a magazine, a newspaper, the encyclopedia, the phonebook. I could also give you directions to the library if you'd like. :)
