6 Months Old . . .

Can you all believe that Olivia is already 6 months old?? We can't! She's becoming more and more mobile every day! She's not crawling on her hands and knees yet, but she's getting pretty good at "army" crawling. Here's a little video of her from a couple days ago of her "crawling" around and trying to get into mischief:


Aside from her becomming quite mobile these days (yup time to baby-proof), we've just been hanging out with her and enjoying seeing her learn something new almost every day. She's been a joy lately and we are just smitten with her! She did have her 6-month doctor's appointment this past Friday - here are the latest stats:

Weight: 16 lbs 14 oz (75%)

Height: 26 3/4 inches (80%)

Head Circumference: 17 1/4 inches (80%)

So you see that she is growing like a weed! She has been doing so much better with her food since we've been doing the reflux medicine. AND she just LOVES her solids! See this picture:


We went over to see her friend Gracie on her 6-month birthday. They exchanged their presents that they got each other. Olivia got Gracie a fun spinning top that makes cool animal sounds and Gracie go Olivia some fun balls with animals in them and an NC State football jersey onsie (Gracie must have bought it when mommy wasn't looking!) Here are some pictures from them hanging out:


Here are some other pictures we took of her on her 6-month birthday:





Guess she's had enough:


And here are just some other pictures we thought were cute of her:







Well, that's about all that's going on here. Just trying to get our act together for Christmas. We are fortunate enough to have my family (mom, dad and brother) come to Raleigh for Christmas so that Olivia can spend Christmas morning in her own house to open her toys. Then we'll be leaving town that afternoon for a family get-together in Mooresboro, NC with some of Grant's family. Then we'll be off to Lenoir to see Grant's parents for Christmas night. Then back down to Huntersville to spend a little more time with my family and then back up to Lenoir for another family get-together on Sunday with some more of Grant's family. Yup, we'll be touring NC for the holiday and doing a little bouncing back and forth. Hopefully Olivia (and us) will be able to tolerate all the driving and time away from home. But we've just got to go to show off this little one to everyone this year for her 1st Christmas. It is going to be lots of fun to share Christmas with her and santa might just spoil her rotten!
