Happy 1/2 year, Ava Kate!

How quickly 6 months has flown by!
 Ava Kate is now 6 months old (as of Friday, April 6).  

- Ava Kate weighs 18 lbs and 4 oz. and is 27 1/2 in. long (just 4oz bigger and 1/2 shorter than AR at this age).
-She eats 7-8oz every 4 hours and eats a "meal" 2-3 times a day.
- She has oatmeal most mornings and has tried sweet potatoes, applesauce, bananas and purple hull peas and liked them all. 
-She eats really well with the spoon and loves her sippy cup.

-She is on a great schedule and is such a great little sleeper.  She likes to be in bed around 7 and she will sleep until 7 or 7:30 the next morning.  She takes a shorter morning nap (30min-hour) around 9 or 9:30 and then takes another nap when her big sister does after lunch and that nap she will sleep anywhere from 2-3 hours and sometimes I have had to go wake her up. 

-She loves to sleep on her tummy and hold both her bunnies...one in each arm.

-I rarely have had to go in to soothe her but lately I have had to go move her back to the top of the bed because she moves her way down to the bottom and then she is stuck.

-Her fine motor skills are really in action lately.  She is grabbing everything in sight and 90% of it, she puts in her mouth. 
-She likes to watch Mickey Mouse Clubhouse like her Big Sis always did.
-She smiles and laughs all the time...she is such a happy baby!
-She thinks Anna Riley hung the moon!  She looks up to her so much already!
-She loves bathtime and gets so excited when she sees its time to get in!

-She is getting stronger with her sitting but is still a little wobbly.
-She loves to play on her tummy and her back under her playmat. 
-She still likes the exersaucer for now.
-She kicks her legs and feet all the time.
-She loves to play with her feet!
-She does this thing with her right wrist where it looks like she is almost waving but I know its too soon for that but it is cute anyway! :) 

-She has big brown eyes that she gets the most complements on all the time!
-She looks just like her Daddy when he was a baby.
-She has the cutest, chunkiest legs!
-She is a very laid back, happy go lucky baby!

Happy 1/2 year Ava Kate!  We love you!
