Six Months Old

My baby is six months old:(. A whole half year has come and gone in a blink of an eye. Olivia has become a mommy's girl. Especially in the evening when she is hungry and tired, all she wants is mommy. She sits up with very little support. She rolls around the room some but she loves to lay on her belly and just play...she rather be on the floor then the exersaucer, johnny jump up, etc. She is eating three times a day and loves most of her foods. She even started on Gerber puffs in the last few weeks. It is fun watching her try to get them in her mouth. I have started making my own baby food and she seems to spit up less on it. She loves to be out and about as much as her sister. If she is having a bad day then I am itching to get out of the house b/c I know she will be happy. Olivia absolutely loves her sister and looks for her all the time. We still aren't sleeping through the night. It doesn't seem to be bothering her but it's killing mommy. She loves things that rattle and crinkle and is a TV watcher just like her sister. She is a very good baby and is very much a wiggle worm also. She still has a bad day here or there but the doctor said it is her reflux acting up (we have been of medicine for a month now) she suggested giving her medicine on those days to see if that helps. When we are having a day like that and I can't get out of the house with her, I will strap her in her carseat and put her in front of the TV. Within ten minutes she falls asleep....does that make a bad mom? She is such a joy and I can't wait to see how much more she changes in the next six months.
