Ella at 6 months and vacation time!
At 6 months Ella weighs 14 lbs, 7 oz., is 26" tall and has a head circumference of 16.5". She is 100% pure sunshine! I love this age...it is my absolute favorite! She is such a happy girl and unless she is hungry, she is all smiles. She is sitting up on her own (since about 2 weeks ago...if we put her in the sitting position, she will stay put). She loves watching her big brother jump around and be silly. She's still saying "Mamamama" every now and then, but mostly she says, "Babababa" or just makes her mouth move as if she's saying "Mama", but no sound comes out. She is still stictly breastfed, but we will probably be introducing some solids in the next few weeks. Honestly I keep putting it off because with each step that means she is growing up and I'm not ready for that! Of course, it is inevitable.
We leave Friday to go on a family vacation to Panama City Beach, Florida!!! I cannot tell you how excited we are! This will be Ella's first vacation. 8 days of this view...
Friday night we will make a stop in Montgomery to see my Papaw and then we will be on our way to the beach Saturday morning.
Please pray for Ethan today. He woke up with a fever of 100.2, a stuffy nose, and a sore throat. He's wide awake at 6:00am and says he feels ok, but he can't go to school with a fever. I guess I should be glad it is happening now and not next week!
