six months old

Wow, where is this time going? I feel like I just had her yesterday. I need to get some 6 month pictures taken and post them. Maybe I'll go do that on Wednesday. As for her new skills now that she's so "old", she now does..... nothing. lol. She has gotten better at rolling from front to back now and doesn't look like she's falling down anymore. But still no teeth, still no sitting up, still no solid foods yet. I did take the first step to solids yesterday though and actually brought some into the house. :P We decided to go with oatmeal cereal instead of rice since I've heard rice can be constipating.

I had a FABULOUS time in Indiana. It was so nice to hang out with my friend and her hubby, parents, and 2-year-old. It was so cute watching the little girl interact with Lydia. I kept telling people that Lydia would have made such a great second baby, since she was so patient with what the other little girl kept doing to her. She even emptied out her little round laundry basket and put it upside down on top of Lydia. lol. Oh and Lydia LOVED their golden retriever. She kept smiling and laughing and having a good old time. And apparently this dog will "nudge" the 2-year-old every so often, and the dog did this to Lydia at one point but wasn't used to nudging such a small baby... and rolled Lydia right over with her nose.

While we were there, we went to some of the cutest little kids' stores. I got her a new toy that I'll post a picture of once she's awake. She LOVES it. When we left that store, she cried when I put her in her carseat. I gave her the new toy and she was SO happy and was playing with it and "tasting" it and talking to it. Then we got to our next stop and I had to take the toy away to get her out of the seat, and she got mad again. We also went to Babies'R'Us since there isn't one anywhere near where we live, and I got her a tiny swimsuit. :D All of the other stores we looked at had swimsuits but they started at 12 months. BRU is the only place that has swimsuits in her size. I tried it on her last night and it is SO cute. :) I'll have to post a picture of that, too, later. So far her daddy doesn't know about the swimsuit. He's off on Wednesday but has an eye appointment so I'm planning on getting both of us ready for swimming while he's at his appointment then surprising him when he comes home. I can't wait, he is going to love it.

The drive wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. I planned 2 stops and took them, and she hardly cried at all on the way up there. But the drive back home seemed like it was twice as long. :P We made it OK though. Now at the end of this month I'll visit my mother in law for a few days to help her out post-surgery, then for most of July I should be here. Then I added a trip in early August for a wedding (another 8-10 hour drive), and in later August I'll visit my sister in law and my family on the same trip, and then after that I think I'll rest for a few months. Or years. lol

Hi Andrea

Its Jen here from Ovusoft. I tried Kailyn on the rice cereal about 2 weeks shyof her 6 months. I felt she was ready as she is sitting up etc... She loved I can tell you that much. But boy did it give her nasty constipation. Its so full of iron and thats all. So I opted for her next cereal to be the Oatmean and rice. Then I will intorduce different ones. The oatmeal keeps her moving. Pardun the pun!!! Lydia will get her teeth and she will sit up. Hey, Lydia has hair and rolls over. She's 2 up on Kialyn LOL! Like your blog. Jen from Ovusoft...
