Chelsea Month: 6

There is so much to say about my little girl this month! Hopefully I'll get it all in...

Chelsea Mckinley 6 Months....
--21.6 lbs 29 in. (quick comparison...Carson was that heavy at 10 months and that tall at 9)
--Sits up all by herself
--Scoots around the room
--Gets up on all fours
--Still has to deal with eczema and impetigo infections

--Loves to swing at the park

--Will suck on my chin when she is hungry
--Laughs the hardest at her Big Brother
--Sleeps a total of 13 hours a night with usually 1 feeding in between
--Sucks on her toes a lot!
--Starting saying da-da-da-da and na-na-na-na
--Loves to suck on wet rags

Up until about 2 weeks, she would NOT eat solid foods. This video shows you just how strong her feelings were against it.

--Since this video, she has eaten sweet potatoes twice, bananas, and squash once. ( the last few days she hasn't wanted ANY solids though)

I'm sure there is more. But it will have to wait for another time and another post!

Ranch Style

This was a fun weekend with my fam last month. Carson LOVED every minute. From the buggy, to the bike (4-wheeler), to the warm pool...he was one very happy camper!

"Where guys, mom?"

"Here Mal, stand there and shoot."
"Um, yeah ok, like this?"

I really don't know how we always get a picture of my face like this??!!

"Guys WAIT!"

And the Goo just hung out either in the jump-up, someones arms, or the closet!

Ok, funny story about our trip.

When we got there, we saw a few dead scorpions and 1 live one. That night before bed, I asked what it felt like to get stung by one. No one really knew. When we were all asleep, my dad woke up from my mom jumping out of bed, flinging the sheet off her, and saying, "OK!"

It was an "ok, now I know what it feels like to be stung by a scorpion!" It had stung her on the bum and for a while they couldn't find it. Then my dad swat at my moms leg cause it was clinging to the side of her leg! AH!

I am so glad it wasn't me! Or one of my kids. I would have flipped. Apparently it feels a lot like a bee sting and lasts only a few minutes and then it's just a bit sore to the touch for a day. No big deal but still. Way to go mom!
