today is ava six months old, half a year already. it is bittersweet because with each day more and more of ava's personality comes through, but at the same time it seems ages since she was a newborn and i feel like it is all just flying by so fast--oh the joy of motherhood ;)
at six months, ava:
∆ can sit by herself, but needs a cushion or two beside her as she gets tired after a couple of minutes and just falls/flops.
∆ is trying to blow raspberries--so funny seeing her try.
∆ has more hair than ever before, and her little bald patch is slowly but surely disappearing.
∆ is a little wriggle bum, she cannot sit still. she is always trying to reach for something or see something.
∆ is unbelievably nosey. she will just stare at strangers eyes and mouth wide open. it is rather embarrassing sometimes especially as she hardly ever smiles at them, just stares.
∆ is still a chatterbox who loves having a conversation with anyone and anything--spoons are particularly good to talk to at the moment it seems.
∆ loves her food and boy can she eat. sweet potato, butternut squash and banana porridge are her favourites at the moment but ava will try anything especially if she can feed herself and get it everywhere--and i mean everywhere.
∆ is a big girl as she no longer has her dummy and we are so proud of her for how she has just taken it all in her stride :) and speaking of being a big girl she also loves using her sippy cup especially if she can spray water everywhere when my back is turned.
∆ still can melt our hearts by smiling at us or giggling. her giggle just melts my heart, it is one of the nicest sounds ever i tell you.
