Finleys First Halloween

Finley had her 6 month check up yesterday. She is growing very well and is still tall and thin. She is 16 lbs 4 oz and 27" tall. She is still breastfeeding every 2-3 hours during the day and not at all between 7 pm and 7 am. We have been giving her more regular meals (usually 2 per day). She has tried lots of foods and likes most of them. Some of the newer introductions have been yogurt, oatmeal, eggs, turkey, lentils, spinach, potatoes and liver. Her favorite by far is liver. Im not a fan of liver at all, but I know its packed with nutrients that are great for babies and am really happy that she likes it.

She is still sleeping like a champ. We never hear a peep from her during the night and even hear her get up sometimes at 5 am and babble for a little while and then go back to sleep. Naps are still more of a battle, but mainly if we are too late putting her down or if she is off her schedule.

We think she is going to crawl and sit up fully on her own any day now. She is very close to doing both. For now though, she enjoys rolling to get where she needs to go.

Finley dressed up like a duck for Halloween and had her Gran and Grandpa visiting during her first Halloween. We went to 2 pumpkin patches on Halloween weekend.

Grandpa made roasted chicken on the grill. It was delicious with a spinach & fennel salad and baked sweet potato. Finley enjoyed the sweet potato and sucking on a chicken bone.
