6 months (and 1 week)

This has been the best 6 months of my life! Even though we've had a rough couple of days this week (thanks to those new teeth!), I wouldn't trade this job for anything. Speaking of a job, I started back to work this week. I'm glad to say it wasn't as hard as I thought it might be. We have a great sitter, Kelley, that comes to our house to watch Caroline. Thankfully, I'm only working 2 days a week. It will be nice to be around some adults during the day.
We started our Level 2 Gymboree class yesterday, and Caroline loved it! She was almost always a little fussy at some point of each of our Level 1 classes. I think my little wiggle worm just didn't like laying down and hanging out for the songs. In our new class she gets to play on all the equipment in the gym--slides, mats, boats, all sorts of new things!
We have her 6 month doctor's appointment on Friday--not looking forward to more shots. :-( Here are a couple of new pictures and fun Caroline facts:

*She is a master of sitting up now. She loves to sit on her alphabet mat and play with all of her toys.

*This kid will be crawling before long! When she's sitting and wants a toy that's out of her reach, she will lean forward until she's on her belly and tries her best to get where she wants to go (and then gets frustrated when she can't get there!).

*We are having some trouble transitioning to solids. She has tried avocados and apples and doesn't seem to be a fan of either. She does ok with oatmeal, and we're going to try green beans tomorrow.

*She's working on drinking out of a sippy cup.

*I think she is going to be a spunky little girl. You definitely know when she's mad about something and will cry and get frustrated when something's not going her way.

*She has 2 teeth! Her 2 bottom ones have started to make their appearance.

*She is trying to pull up. She will grab my leg and pull onto her knees. In Gymboree, she was sitting in the little boat, grabbed the bar in front of her, and stood right up.

*She loves Max (our dog) and Baby (our cat), but they are not interested in her at all!

*She absolutely loves to be outside.

She is growing fast! And so cute! Have you tried mixing avocados and bananas? Jenna Claire loves that.
