6 Months

Isabella has now reached the 6 month mark! It's hard to believe that she has been with us that long!

She is now sitting like an old pro and only on occasion falls over. Mostly when her brothers run past her in the opposite direction that she is facing. (which they do a lot!) She has started eating 3 meals of food a day. She has tried carrots, squash, sweet potatoes, green beans and peas and she LOVES them all. She cries when the food is gone almost every time! Jack is enjoying picking which food she will get to try next (he can't wait for the fruit!) He likes to line them all up and look at what she is able to eat.

She surprised us today by drinking out of a sippy cup that one of the boys had filled with lemonade. I guess it's time to pick up a few of those for her too!

She has also become a momma's girl and will be perfectly content with anyone else and then see me walk by and she will start to whimper or cry. Although this warms my heart greatly, it can make for getting things done a little trickier!

She had a modeling assignment that she got a "It's my 1/2 Birthday!" shirt, so I made her a cake to have in the photos. She loved to put her fingers in the frosting, but to my surprise she didn't once put her fingers in her mouth and try it! I was happy about that, but hope at her cake smash shoot at 1 year she will dig in!

5 Months Old

Belle is 5 months, well really she's almost 6 months, but with the chaos that surrounds our house (mostly good chaos) I don't get a lot of time to blog! I will attempt to be better at this, as well as blogging about the boys. There have been several comments about the fact that it seems I only have one child these days! I do what I can people!

Belle is now a master roller, which means almost everything needs to be up off the floor or it will find its way into her mouth. Jack does pretty well with this, Corbin on the other hand could care less! We're working hard on this before we find ourselves on a trip to the ER. I fully expect to visit there again, but I'm sure it will be because Corbin (the monkey) will need stitches or a cast on something. Not for miss Belle!

My grandma used to say if I had a tail I would be a monkey and I feel the same about Corbin!

Belle finally had her 4 month check up, only a month and a half late. She is in the 97th percentile for height and head size and the 60th for weight. She now weighs 16lbs. 11oz. Somewhere I have written that she weighed 17 lbs last month, so clearly I don't know how to use our scale. This could mean two things, I'm so sleeper deprived I can't read the numbers properly or I really weigh less then what my scale says! I hope it's the latter! 

That's right I'm sleep deprived! Miss Belle has decided to ditch the sleeping through the night idea and get up several times :( She is currently eating oatmeal 2 times a day, and will soon be adding another meal as well as some veggies! She's growing a little more each day, and has currently said "ma ma". Another check mark on her bucket list!
