6 months

And there went a half a year! Baby Sis turned six months yesterday! Since last month, her bottom two teeth came in, she got her first cold, and she can now sit up unassisted for quite a while. She prefers to stand and walk places, with help of course. She can't stand being on her stomach. She is acutely aware of everything in her surroundings.
She loves to sleep right next to my body. She is ticklish all over. Always has a smile for Dad and Terran. She is a tough little cookie who barely cries with shots and when she gets bumped. She puts everything in her mouth. She reaches up and pots her fingers in my mouth every time she nurses, though that is really hard to get her to do because she is often too distracted to eat. But, she does great with solid foods.
She has a quick smile and shares it with almost anyone. She has done pretty well with having other people hold her, unless she is tired. If she is really tired, only Mom can comfort her. She has evolved to sleeping with us every night. If I'm not next to her, she wakes often, but if I am, she sleeps quite well. Not sure how that will play out in the future but I'm just going with it for now. With sickness and traveling, it isn't worth changing right now.
She is such a bright little being in our lives.
