Faye's Sixth Month:

Height: 27" (95th percentile)
Size Clothes: 6 month clothes
New and Noteworthy: first 2 teeth cut (bottom middle), first time in a high-chair, first time meeting Daniel (from NZ), and Penny & Gary from Australia; on the "noteworthy" side of things...you're a total carseat pooper! As soon as you're buckled in and we start driving somewhere (usually to the babysitters), you decide it's the perfect time to poop. So funny!
If I could only pick two words for the month, they would be 1) crawling, and 2) fussy! Thankfully I can use as many words as I want and there were so many other noteworthy things this month. But seriously...you were hell-bent on figuring out how to crawl. You spent most of the month backward crawling, which didn't satisfy you in the least. The object of your desire would get further and further away--making you fussier and fussier. I know it was so much work trying to figure it all out. You overachieved big time by doing plank holds regularly.
I checked your mouth regularly thinking I could blame your fussiness on teething. I couldn't see any teeth buds for most of the month...but finally you did cut two bottom teeth! They are still just poking through and so we can cherish your gummy smile a little longer.

(8/26) You signed "milk" to me for the first time. It was after work and we were just laying down to nurse and you looked at your hand and made the sign. Usually you just smile and giggle when I ask you if you want milk and do the baby sign language, so I know you understand...but it was amazing to see you sign for yourself!

You like trying to suck on my nose (gross, I know) and putting your mouth next to my mouth. It makes you giggle when i pretend to eat you. You're also so grabby now and wanting to scratch and touch anything you can get your hands on. The next thing you know, it will be in your mouth!
We went to Catalina Island over Labor Day weekend. It was such a fun time playing in the pool and enjoying the beautiful ocean views! We all had fun cruising around in the golf cart. Your eyes were as big as saucers.
After enjoying the pool on Catalina Island, and with it being so hot at home, we got a kiddie pool for the backyard. You mainly just try to eat the side of it.
Happy half birthday, my love! There's nothing we cherish more than observing and shaping the person you're becoming. With each new development, you better express your personality and it's so awesome. We love playing with you, snuggling you, consoling you, and more. We cannot wait to see what the next 6 months will bring!
