Another month, another milestone: this time it’s crawling time! Lily’s keeping us busy with baby-proofing while simultaneously littering the floors with anything she can chew on or pick up and bang on the ground. She has tried a variety of foods by now but still doesn’t eat solids every day. It appears that she likes fruits over veggies for now.
At her 6 month appointment she weighed 16 lbs, was 25.5 inches, and enjoyed the crinkly exam table paper as never before! She still enjoys splashing in the pool or tub (not ocean) and tends to sleep or relax through runs in the jogging stroller. She is a very motivational running buddy, especially when unhappy or hungry. Her expanding vocab includes screaming, “pfffft,” “bbbbbsh,” “wah-wah-ah-wahh” etc.

Lily is proving to be an avid traveller on her first plane rides and on a another road trip even though she let her FOMO* get in the way of her usual 11 uninterrupted hours of sleep at night.
Happy 1/2 birthday, baby! You bring us so much joy with your smiles and cuddles, your giggles and squeals, and even your grumpy faces and tears. Thank you for sleeping through the night, for breastfeeding, and for being healthy. Thanks for having soft curly hair, the smoothest skin, and big brown eyes. Thank you for putting up with the times we've let you get stuck under beds, had to let you fuss for a while, took the power cord or the phone away from you, didn't feed you the second you wanted, or paid more attention to our phones than to you. Thanks for letting us blow in your face and make the goofiest noises around you and for letting us smother you with kisses. Thank you for being our daughter. I know you have no control over any of these things so we thank the Lord for making you you!

As I write this she has manouvered her way to where she can now kick the vertical blinds, this was the process of her turning on to her side and then back to her back in a different position (not sure how else to explain it). Even without knowing where she was going she ended up somewhere pretty exciting!
Taking a short break from trying to get her gums on the uke.
I'm a pretty big fan of her smiles.

gnawing on her hands
staring at the blue bird on the swing
grabbing at the duck on the doorway jumper
kicking her feet to slowly move in a circle on the floor
being outside in the warm weather for the first time in her life
She was eventually able to adjust to taking the bottle while I'm at work though her sleep is a little more wonky now throughout the week. She generally spends most of her awake time doing practice talking, practice sitting, practice standing, practice rolling, and practice flying.

she smiles bigger than this but this is as much as I could capture

being rocked to sleep for naps during the day
long walks in the Ergo
the swinging car seat
just laying around
the still or the rocking car seat
passing gas and those difficult poops
when her bow falls down over her eyes
New this month:
size 1 diapers
cloth diapers for most of the time
more head control
more oohing and aahing and other apparent attempts at verbal communication
more waves in her hair
more length to the car seat straps
For a while this month her every 3 hour day-time routine was to wake up (or just start crying without waking up), eat, burp and spit up, hang out happily for a while (with some more spitting up), yawn, sneeze twice, smile, get fussy after a while, yawn more, get stuck in the carrier, sleep, wake up, eat... She definitely had the being a one-month-old thing down to a science.
At her 2 month appointment she weighed 10 lb, 3 oz (more than 2.5 her birth weight) and was 22", putting her up into the 20's for percentile instead of just making it onto the charts. If her job is to look cute and to get bigger, she should get a raise for her excellent performance.
