6 and a half months

So I have been meaning to give an update about Brinley since she turned 6 months old. But lo and behold the month is already half way over and I am just getting to it now. Crazy how I don't really have a whole lot to do right now but it still takes me this long to get caught up. Anyways, back to Brinley.

Brinley is awesome! She is getting so big. At her six month appointment she weighed 16 lb 7 oz and was 26.5 inches tall. So much bigger than the little 6 lb baby we had just 6 months ago. It goes by faster than anything.

We determined today that Brinley is so cute because she looks just like a cabbage patch kid. Just compare the pictures.
Okay so she doesn't look exactly like one but close enough.

Brinley has so much personality now. She loves to laugh when being tickled or hanged upside down. She is such a happy baby. Her favorite toys include my hair and her own feet. She will suck her big toe just like it is her thumb. She loves sucking on her hands and anything else she can get her hands onto.

Right now Brinley is fascinated by anything outdoors and by her own reflection. She is also a constant little noisemaker too. She doesn't cry too much, but she does like to her herself talk, especially right before she falls asleep.

My favorite thing right now is that Brinley loves to have her face rubbed. The best way to get her to fall asleep is by lightly tickling her cheeks and eyelids. So cute. If only everyone could be pacified so easily.

Brinley refuses to eat any food except for cantaloupe. She is also doing great at sitting up on her own, except when she gets distracted by her feet and ends up falling on her face trying to get them.

Here are some pictures of our little cutie. Hope you enjoy!

A couple of weeks ago my sister had a baby girl named Jacelyn. She is a cutie and has about a million times more hair than Brinley. Yup, after 6 months Brinley would still be classified as being bald.

We love you Brinley Bear!
