M3 is now 6 months old and she seems like she has matured so much in the past month. She can sit on her own now, for brief moments, and is constantly reaching for things. She's starting to understand 3 dimensions and can instantly bop a person in the nose, grab a handful of the nearest head of hair, or chew on her own toes. She likes to converse with us and it just looks like she is trying to get her point across.
She is teething (2 are in with more on the way), which makes her a little more cranky than her normally sunny self. Her sleep is completely wacked as well. I have trouble remembering those 11 hour stretches she had in the beginning. From trouble napping to many night wakings we are just not sure what happened!
She can push up on her arms and roll from back to front and front to back. She puts a lot of effort into doing crunches, lifting her shoulders off the floor when she is on her back.
Up until just a few days ago I could put her on a blanket and she'd play for a while. Now, she rocks and rolls her way all over the floor. In just a few moments she traveled from her blanket to the spot I was sitting when I took the previous photo. Her path was anything but direct, but she was really excited to tag me.
We all adore her and she loves to give and receive kisses. The kids get her giggling with peek-a-boo and other silly games. We'll start her on solid food as soon as we get some made for her and she goes in to the doctor for her check-up next week. She seems ginormous to me and I can't wait to see how much she has grown. Her 9 month clothes are getting tight already!
