6 Months Old

Isabella turned six months old on February sixth! The day before, she and I visited Dr. Penny for a check up. I was hoping that we would have some new skills to show off for this appointment, but Isabella has not yet mastered sitting up by herself.

She weighed in at a whopping 15 lbs and 12 oz and measured at almost 27". That's 50th percentile for weight and 90th for height. My long and lean girl!

Taken after a bath the day we went to the doctor. And yes, those are slippers.

Although Isabella hasn't mastered sitting up, this past month has been filled with several firsts.

Two Sunday nights ago Isabella was especially irritable when we came home from church. Jacob and I both noticed that she seemed quite warm. We took her temperature and discovered that she had her first fever. :( It didn't take us long to realise that she was finally cutting her first tooth. Although there's not a whole lot showing yet, it has definitely broken through the gums. Our sweet girl was so sad that night. I hated that she didn't feel good, but I sure did love holding her with only her diaper on while she snuggled up against me.

As seen previously on here, a few weeks ago Isabella tried cereal for the first time. This past Saturday she tried her first vegetable, pureed Butternut Squash. I made a whole batch of it on Friday night and couldn't wait for her to try it. She was pretty iffy about it at first but groans with delight as she eats it now. I've never heard a kid make such dramatic sounds while eating!

On Saturday Isabella also received her first two Valentines. She woke up to this from her Mommy and Dadddy...
I love it Mom!

And then later on in the afternoon, this showed up at our door...
This handsome little man is Michael Tremonte, son of our dear friends Molly and Ben. He got her the cutest little giraffe valentine.

Isabella's weekend was rounded out with her first Phase Ten game. She even helped her Yaya win! Please note her seriously cute Valentines outfit from her "uncle" Scott.
Uncle Scott and Yaya came over Saturday night and let Jacob and I go out for Valentine's Day.
