Happy Half-Birthday Leo!

comparison

Leo's half birthday came and went quietly this weekend, without much more than a "Wow I can't believe she's been around for 6 months!" Going from 0-6 months flew by. I'm sure going form 6-12 months will be no different. Second babies seem to grow up so much faster that first babies.

Now for some fun facts about Leo:

Weight: 18 lb 2 oz

Heigh: 27 in.

Head Circumference: 17.52 in. (doc said her head didn't grow since her last appointment because it was big to begin with. It's her body that's growing into her head. I blame Keola.)

First solid foods: Poi, banana, sweet potato, rice cereal

Milestones: Sitting up unassisted, without bracing herself with her hands, going from lying down to sitting, crawling,

Favorite person: Well…duh.

Leo enjoys: Swings, getting tossed in the air, tickles, eating, being carried, playing with her toys, standing up.

Leo dislikes: Being left alone for too long, feeling trapped (i.e. her carseat, carrier, bumbo, crib, or when she wedges herself under the entertainment center), getting her face wiped down after eating.

Some (but definitely not all) of my favorite pics of the past 6 months:
