6 Months old... Practically a teenager!

Miss Roo is 6 months old... actually 7 months now, but it has taken me a whole month to get myself to blog.
6 Month Stats-- Weight 17.2 pounds (58%) Height 27.5 inches (89%)

Ruby LOVES: Her crib, anything to chew on, bath time, carrots, sweet potatoes, and apples, she loves Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, her bouncer thing, looking at herself in the mirror, pulling hair, her carseat, the ibuprofen bottle(the squishy thing on top to chew), outside, being naked, drinking water from a sippy-cup, football/volleyball games, to fake cough and laugh(maybe to make me feel good about myself??) her blanket on her face to sleep, tilting her head to the side to look at something...


Ruby DOESN'T LOVE: Green beans or peas, getting dressed for the day or getting her pajamas on, her nose cleaned out, church(she is so irreverent), when her pacifier falls out...


Ruby can't do anything too crazy yet. She sits up really good and just watches everything whats going on. She sleeps about 11 hours at night and takes 2 2-3 hour naps during the day. She eats around 7 ounces of formula 4-5 times a day and has yummy baby food 2-3 times a day. She wakes up happy and only cries when shes tired or hungry. She doesn't have any teeth yet (although I thought she was teething at 4 months). The doctor said she is very strong and healthy. She doesn't laugh for just anybody but when she thinks something is funny she laughs until she's worn out. When Ruby and I both sit down and look in the mirror she flops both of her hands around like shes waving, and then while Im waving she stops and when I stop she starts floppin her arms again... so, I dont know if she is trying to wave or if its just a funny coincidence. She babbles a lot even with her pacifier in her mouth... she hardly ever goes without a pacifier, when she sees it she grabs it and puts it in her mouth. Ruby pretends like shes just going to softly touch your hair but as soon it touches her hand, she has a death grip on it. She rolled over for about a week when she was around 2 months old but she has ZERO interest in rolling over now. She doesn't like being on her belly for very long which probably means no crawling anytime soon which Im okay with. She rocks back and forth when shes sitting up kinda like shes dancing. She has a high-pitch scream that gives me a headache but its a happy scream so I think its cute. She loves her dad and thinks he's the funniest guy in the world!

She is such a joy in our lives! I can't imagine life without her... well, I lie, I can imagine it but life is much better with her around! She is a SPECTACULAR baby and we ADORE her!
