Only 13 days late ... Maggie is six (and a half) months old now!
Baby girl is chubby, goofy, toothy, and on the move!
She isn't quite sitting up on her own yet, but she's working on it. She has also developed her own form of locomotion - she arches her back and scoots around like a freakish inchworm. Like this. It's pretty funny.
Yes, that's another pair of oliver + s Nature Walk pants I whipped up for this photo shoot. I decided to do a constrast waist on these. Once I saw them on, I got a sudden urge to make her a Wonder Woman pair, with blue and white stars on the bottom and a gold lamé waistband. Can't you just see it?
Like the Wonder Baby that she is, she also does push-ups and scoots around on her belly.
Most (but not all) of her darker hair fell out, and soft, light brown hair is growing in. She has four teeth now - two on top and two on the bottom. Can you see her little top teeth? There's a little gap between them. Like a baby Lauren Hutton. It's pretty much the cutest thing you ever did see. But watch out! Those puppies are sharp! And if you're not paying attention, she will bite you. With a smile on her face, of course.
Those super adorable teeth are also the reason we don't sleep much anymore. Maggie is currently going through the "won't-sleep-except-with-a-boob-in-her-mouth" phase. It's very snuggly, but a bit tiring, as you can imagine. I keep telling myself that at least my early-teething babies get the whole teeth thing over with quickly. "Two-year-old molars" come in at 16 months in our family. So there's that to look forward to, right? Yawn.
We are just starting to try some baby-led solids now. So far, Maggie loves lardy refried beans and hates strained peas. (She's no fool.)
Last time she was weighed, Maggie was just shy of 17 pounds and 26 inches long. That puts her solidly in the 60th percentile. So she's a lot smaller than Joe was at this age, which is great! Our arms are so grateful! Especially since we have to carry her around most of the day, because hanging out on the floor with her toys is boring. Obviously.
Love ya, Sweet Cheeks Maggie Magoo.
