Well, Cecilia is learning very quickly. She has mastered crawling and has also mastered pulling herself into a standing position on just about anything. She now pulls herself into a standing position and practices letting go with first one hand, then switching. She has even tried to cheat by letting go with both hands but leaning her chest and tummy against the object. She is definately thrilled to be able to move about on her own, but she continues to be anxious to keep learning and be able to walk on her own.
Her hair is continuing to fill in but unfortunately her sleep is getting holier (not the saintly type). She wakes constantly throughout the night. I've become so tired when I wake up in the morning I'm not sure what day it is or what I should do next. We have tried feeding her every 1-2 hours during the day to make sure she wasn't hungry at night. She is not napping too much during the day. I don't think a growth spurt lasts over a solid month. Motrin and Tylenol don't seem to help. I've tried sleeping closer to her in a snuggled fashion as well as a bit further away so she can move more - one only worse than the other. Her diaper has not been dirty even one of those nights. Our last idea is to try to transition her to her crib with the theory she just wants to sleep like a wild woman and needs her space. Otherwise, we are running out of ideas ... and sleep.
Overall she is a very happy little girl - as evidenced by her laughing video. She enjoys crawling and playing and laughing and being thrown in the air and just generally has fun.
P.S. - based on her 6 month stats, another 2 3/4 inches and she will have met her maximum requirement for her current car seat and we will have to switch her to her toddler seat. I think she will definately meet the height maximum (29 in.) before the weight maximum (22 lbs.)
