SIX Months And Counting!!!

Our little Blakey (which is what we are tending to call her right now - or Bake if your are Cole) is not so little anymore.  She weighs 20 lbs 12 oz and is 27 1/2 inches long...97%+...To give you a bit of perspective, she is a big girl, but still almost 3 pounds less and 1 inch shorter than Cole was at 6 months old.  She is in size 12 month/12-18 month clothes.  Her eyes are a greenish-brown color these days and she still has NO teeth...but the doctor said that she will be getting several any day now...drool is everywhere.  She is sleeping from about 7:00pm until 5:30am 6/7 nights a week - which is perfect for our crazy work week schedule...not so much for the weekend, except she goes back to sleep until after 7am if she wakes and drinks a bottle.  Blake is just a happy girl.  I can't really describe her in any other way.  She doesn't really get upset unless she is hungry or tired.  She talks a lot and loves to watch her family and friends - she is a bit of a busy body for sure!

Blake likes to:
Sing and talk all of the time, smile and laugh out loud for the silliest reasons, roll all over the floor and scooch to get to something she wants (it is not crawling yet, but somehow she gets to where she wants to go), brush her "teeth", eat her veggies (not green beans so much, unless we have something yummy mixed in with them), play with her doggy and monkey, play in her saucer, and try to sit up on her own.  She is getting so strong and wants to keep up with her brother so badly, I see the days of movin' and grovin' coming soon.

AND she still LOVES BIG BOWS!!!
