On September 11, Katie will officially be 6 months old. But since that's Anna's birthday, I will reserve that day for her and post this a few days early.
In this last month, Katie has almost mastered crawling. She gets up on her hands and knees and sometimes even her feet, but has a hard time with the forward motion. She does a little inchworm action to reach toys or toes. Also this month we've worked on taking a bottle (she likes the special NUK nipples). It's hard for her when mommy leaves, but she really is improving.
Katie has a really cute laugh. It's a singular squawk, then a long pause, and another squawk. She smiles and especially laughs at Lee or Anna jumping up and down. Katie still loves to be held, and hates to be left out of the action.
We have loved the last half-year with our little girlie, and can't wait to see what she does next!
