Respectable, but petite compared to her big brother. She's not the biggest 6 month old in the world, but she is healthy and for that I am so thankful.
She's growing every day in her baby skillz. She can sit unassisted for small, very small, periods of time. She's army crawling, and occasionally she gets up on her hands and knees for a few seconds at a time. I've been trying to discourage all of this forward movement. It's mostly been verbal discouragement: "Isla, there will come a day when you will actually have to do something with yourself. Please, for my sake, enjoy laying about while you can!" (I'm kind of nervous. I don't know what I'm going to do when two of them are running around the house... )
I captured her on Friday having a great time looking in the mirror on a play mat:
Who's that girl?
In it went...
..and out it came.
Despite her lack of interest in actually eating, she managed to convey quite the range of emotions: from suspicious to surprised to appalled:
Seriously, it can't be that bad.
We could not be more delighted with this girl! The only thing I'm disappointed about is that she's growing up so quickly!
