Amaya at 6 months
Six months old. Wow. Growing so fast. Here are some of Amaya's 6 month pictures, which were taken on Sept. 15th. I scanned these into our computer from paper proofs, so excuse the quality. They are a bit grainy, but this way we can share Amaya's 6 month pictures now, rather than waiting a month for our order to arrive.
Amaya had her 6 month check-up this past week. More shots. Uh-oh. Smile, smile. Amaya weighed 14 lbs. 8 oz. and was 25 1/2 inches long. Getting big, relatively speaking that is. Amaya is on the verge of crawling. We are guessing she'll be crawling by the end of the week. She still does her push-ups, and now she scoots across the floor like an inchworm. She also gets up on her knees and rocks back and forth, and has even proceeded forward a few "steps" in this position, which surely is the beginning of her crawl. Swimming lessons are going well. Amaya mastered her float on Wed., floating independently on her back for several minutes. Now she is working on her roll-over, which she did once Friday, but still needs practice to master. It's been fun watching her learn her new skills. We look forward to her graduation day (from swimming lessons) and seeing all her new tricks come together. I will post a video of her "swimming" when she gets closer to graduation. Let's see, what else. Amaya has spoken her first word. She said da-da several times on Sept. 14th and the rest of that weekend, but then stopped when swimming lessons started. I guess it's normal for babies to back off on their vocalization as they learn new skills. But...today she said da-da, again. Which makes sense because she has the weekends off from swimming. Amaya continues to be a joy. It's so fun to watch her playing and to watch her explore her world. She continues to be a "talker", always jabbering, and she continues to be very cheerful, always smiling and giggling.
Well, I think that's about all for now. We hope this blog entry finds you all enjoying a wonderful fall Sunday.
P.S. Amaya had a ball watching the Packers win vs. the Chargers at B-Dubbs today. She loves going there on Sundays! It's hilarious watching her. A sports fan already.
