6 Month Stats

Sage is 6 months old already! I've been looking back on all of the videos that I've taken of her and it's hard to believe she was ever so small as 7lbs.
I knew I never should have fed her....she's getting too big!
Height: 25.5inches (about the 50th percentile)
Weight: 17lbs (about the 70th percentile)
Food: She's eating solid food regularly now. Daily, she gets around 36 ounces of formula and I feed her solids three times a day when I'm home with her and twice a day if she goes to daycare. She only eats about 3-4 tablespoons of solids at a time typically. She can hold her bottle pretty well if she's reclined back and we've tried introducing a sippy cup. She likes to hold it and gnaw on the spout but I don't think she quite gets that liquid comes out. I'm still making the majority of her food (remember the terrible post on the carrot fiasco?). She's eaten squash, sweet potatoes, sweet peas, green beans, bananas, avocado, pears, apples, apricots, and pumpkin. So far she's eating it all pretty well but there are definitely ones she prefers over others. She tends to favor the squash and bananas the most with pumpkin and sweet peas being the least favorite.
Movement: This kid will not be still. I have to force her to cuddle or else wait until she's VERY sleepy. She's rolling all over the place and if you don't watch her she will plumb roll off into another room-or over to the cat-whichever she gets to first. She's got the rolling from back to tummy as well as tummy to back down pat and it's her primary mode of transportation. Every day I lay out a nice fluffy blanket for her to play on and everyday she stays on it only about 25% of the time. She loves toys-preferably ones that she can bang into something to make a loud noise. She's doing great as far as picking things up and she only bangs herself in the head with her toys every now and then :) She's SO CLOSE to being able to sit up on her own without any support. Right now she can sit up as long as she uses her hands to brace herself but she can sit without using her arms for a couple seconds at a time before she loses balance and topples over. I think she would pick up on it faster but she realizes that she can do more things, and it's easier, if she's laying on her tummy.
Temperment: Drama. She is full of drama. She's typically a very happy baby and full of smiles but she's very sensitive and can throw a full on tantrum at the drop of the hat if something doesn't go just right. I try very hard not to let her see her bottles as I make them because if she gets one look she will scream like she's not eaten in days till she gets it. She does pretty well with strangers as long as I'm in her direct site. I took her to a baby shower today and she was cheesing it up for everyone there for the whole 2 hours we stayed. She let whoever wanted to hold her as long as I stood nearby but if I walked away she started crying. She's also laughing. It's GREAT :)
