It has been a while since you've seen Wyle, so I thought you were due for an update. She is now six months old, and getting so big! She will be crawling any day, and can manuever backwards already quite quickly. I can leave the room for just a minute and come back to find her five feet from where I left her. The days of letting her out of my sight are numbered!
She is in the 50th percentile for weight but the 90th percentile for height. That means she is wearing footie pajamas a size larger than she should because I can't cram her feet into the six-month sized ones.
She is beginning to communicate with us. She picked out her first book recently by deliberately grabbing it while I was reading a different book. It wasn't what she wanted to hear but when I started reading the book she grabbed, she was quite attentive.
The most exciting new development is that she began sleeping through the night this week! I went to feed her at midnight like I have been doing for the past three months, and she only drank a half an ounce and went back to sleep. I couldn't rouse her, so I let her sleep. I thought she'd wake back up in an hour, but I woke up at 7:45 when she awoke. And so we don't do an evening feeding anymore, which means I can get to bed before 1:30 in the morning. I have always been a night owl, but I am so excited to get to sleep early these days!
