Zoe is 6 Months Old!

My darling daughter is now half a year old today! I cannot believe how fast time flies when you have a child! I saw a newborn yesterday and I realized just how much Zoe has grown in the last 6 months. She still hasn't doubled her birth weight but she is almost there. She is about 13.5 lbs right now. She will be starting solid foods today! I am going to start with some Organic Whole-Grain Rice Cereal and we'll go from there. I haven't decided what her first veggie or fruit will be but I'll decide in a few days. Zoe is learning how to sit up on her own and she's doing very well! She's actually stopped herself from falling a few times. She still doesn't like to be on her tummy so I think crawling will come later rather than sooner.

Zoe is such an amazing little girl. My love for her grows deeper every single day. Last night it was like she was really trying to talk to me! Just before she went to bed, I nursed her and then she was in a very good mood, talking away and making facial expressions that she's probably learned from me, really looking like she was engaging in a conversation haha. She was so adorable and it made me cry! She is only a little baby for a short time and I am enjoying every second of it. Even when she's screaming her lungs out or crying for no apparent reason, it is all a part of being a baby and its her only way of communicating that she's upset and when that happens I just try my best to help her get through the problem. Most of the time when she is upset it just means she wants to change settings so I can usually take her outside and she's fine.

I love being a Mommy!
