6 month addendum

So, I kind of rushed my 6 month post because I wanted to put something up, since it was already 2 weeks late, and silly me, forgot a bunch of things.

First, Greta made it 6 months with no illness! The doctor said most babies get sick 8-10 times a year (although most kids are also in daycare), I just hope she doesn’t get sick a lot now!

Twice this month Greta was told that her legs looked like ham hocks. The first time, we were at the grocery store and some man handing out samples said “that baby has some nice ham hocks for legs,” or something to that effect. Umm…am I supposed to say thanks? The second time was when we were getting on the plane for Thanksgiving. The gate agent said “those legs look like ham hocks.” Later as we were actually giving her our boarding passes she said “There’s the little ham hock.” Seriously people, she is my cute little baby. Yes, her legs are chubby, but that is cute! I’m sure they meant no harm, but still I can’t say that to a large person, can I?

Our little girl is quite curious. She wants to be into everything. If something is in your hand, she wants it in her mouth. While at the Philadelphia airport waiting for our flight to leave, I got a bottle of water. I put it in the diaper bag. Greta kept trying to get something in the diaper bag. I kept handing her toys and things for her to play with, but she would not stop trying to go in the diaper bag. Once I gave her the water bottle, she was happy. I thought babies were supposed to be easily distracted? Not this one!

Lastly, this month Greta started reaching her arms to be picked up. We absolutely love it. It is so sweet!
