6 months

Our little one is 6 months old now. Here are some of the things we learned in the last half a year:
  • Sophisticated discussions of poop no longer seem oxymoronic
  • Sleeping more than 3 hours at a time is not actually necessary to function as an adult (though it is useful to function as a logical adult)
  • It takes different muscles to remain in a sitting position than it does to pull/push oneself into said position
  • Being flipped through the air is really fun (though we thought that might be the case even before Tovina agreed with us)
  • While swallowing pureed foods looks easy, it is a surprisingly difficult skill to master
  • Hair is not required for a person to look really cute (Who loves ya, baby?)
  • If you suck on your fingers a lot and accidentally push them too far into your mouth, you may regurgitate a little bit
  • "Little" is a relative term
  • Repeated face-planting is a required precursor to crawling (at least we hope that is why she is doing it)
  • One big dimpled smile is enough to enforce how truly lucky we are to have such a wonderful child
