Kate: 6 month old milestones
Just before the new year Kate hit half a year! Life is so good.
All of her rolls have starting posing a problem by causing rashes. We clean the out really well but she sweats in all of those rolls and it has proved to be quite the task to keep up with her rolly body.
Speaking of rolling, Kate finally rolled this month! Dec 11 she rolled from back to tummy. On Christmas day she rolled from tummy to back (that "easier" way took her longer). It was a few days later that she began consecutive rolls. Now we put her down and she's halfway across the room in under a minute. She loves being able to get around.
The first week in December Kate found her voice. Previously she only blew raspberries. Now, she squeals and screeches, particularly during sacrament meeting.
We introduced solids this month. She has loved everything so far (sweet potatoes, bananas, green beans, peas, avocado, apples) but wasn't found of pears.
In addition to suffering from sweaty rolls, Kate has pretty dry skin. It's gotten much worse with the cold weather. It makes me so sad when I'm lotioning her to feel rough patches. We're going to start putting Vaseline on the worst spots at night to try and heal them up.
She's a very happy baby. She smiles and talks to people all day long. Sometimes it almost sounds like she says "hi".
We only half swaddle her now. She has one arm out, one arm in. Our hope is to be down with it by 7 months... sheesh!

Height: 26.5 inches (71%, up from 37%... but before that it was 75% so 4 months must have been a bad measurement)
Head: 16.56 inches (42%, down from 65%)
