6 months old!!

I cannot even believe it...but Oaklee is 6 months old now. It's crazy how time flies by. She has grown so much and has the funniest little personality. She is a VERY busy baby, and can't hardly sit still long enough to drink a couple of ounces of her bottle! She loves eating baby food ( and everything else she can get into her mouth for that matter!) Especially pears and peaches. Not as big of a fan of peas though.

Oaklee is getting close to crawling now, and even though she isn't quite there yet she can still manage to get into everything by rolling EVERYWHERE she wants to go. She will pull all of the DVDs off the shelf, rip apart any paper she can get her hands on, and pull all the wipes out of the wrapper....so helpful. :)

For Halloween Oaklee was a SKUNK. We were able to borrow my niece Lily's costume from a few years ago. She looked so cute in the costume. We went trick or treating to Grandpa Dave's house and Grandma Heidi's house. Grandma Heidi gave Oaklee a sucker to try, of course she loved licking it. Funny girl. :)

Some of Oaklee's favorite things:

  • rolling around and making a mess
  • SQUEELING at the top of her lungs to make sure you are paying attention to her. And then smiling and laughing when you say "what?"
  • talking jibberish
  • eating baby food
  • stroller rides
  • sitting up
  • trying to wiggle out of her bumbo chair (she can about do it)
  • blowing bubbles
  • pulling mom's hair
  • popcorn popping (likes it much better than pat-a-cake)
  • grabbing mom's food off her plate
  • being tickled
  • bath time
  • riding in the car
  • Easton and Lincoln
  • grabbing mommy's face and slobbering all over it
Oaklee had her 6 month Dr.s appointment a week and a half ago. (hate going to these and getting shots!) She had a blast playing with the paper on the exam table and ripping it to shreds.

Her 6 month stats:
Head circumference- 42.8 cm - 65th percentile
Length- 27.3 inches - 90th percentile
Weight- 18 lbs. 8 oz - 90th percentile

Visit to Monticello

About a month ago we took a trip down to Monticello to visit Grandpa Gary and Grandma Bev. It was a fun time, and Oaklee got LOTS of grandma/grandpa time between them and Grandma Heidi and Grandpa Curt. They have a hot tub at their house so we all spent a good amount of time hanging out in there. :) Minus Oaklee who was already asleep for the night. It is really neat to watch all the deer walk into the backyard and just hang out back there the whole time we were out there! One of them even walked up to the hot tub and layed down on the grass...crazy!

 We took a drive with Oaklee up past Lloyd Lake and took some pictures of all the pretty fall colors. Oaklee was a good sleeper there and on the way home. The highlight of the trip was Derek getting pulled over less than 2 minutes after we got onto the highway and getting a speeding ticket!! NOT FUN..
