– She officially reached 6 months! Yay!

– New foods include broccoli and bread. She liked both, and got broccoli ev.er.y.where. For those playing along at home, the current list is:

  • bagel
  • avocado
  • sweet potato
  • apples
  • carrots
  • banana
  • applesauce
  • broccoli
  • bread

– Army crawl! She can now move herself, rather slowly and with a great deal of effort, across the room. Mostly she employs this skill to acquire her foam bath toys, although she got pretty annoyed when Dad kept moving his pizza out of her reach

– New sleep record: 6.5 hours (which was simultaneously glorious and painful for me!)

– Thumb sucking. I’ve spotted her a couple times with her thumb in her mouth. It may have been coincidence. I gave her a pacifier anyway. She’ll now chew on it. She hasn’t figured out which end goes in her mouth (she mostly uses that part as a handle) but hey, it’s a start.

– She is also definitely now afraid of our neighbors. She’ll tolerate one of them, if I’m holding on to her, but she cries every time she sees the other. We’re not sure why, but I think it’s a fear of strangers combined with the fact that Dad’s pretty much the only guy she ever spends time with.
