No wonder every parent thinks their kid is the smartest in the world! We all start off with a dependent lump of smelly cuteness who sleeps all day and eventually begins to interact with the world around her. From there its a short jump to being able to hold intelligent conversation and then, dare I say it, the smelly lump of cuteness eventually turns into a well-coordinated, intelligent being with a life completely independent of her parents. To be able to witness this journey is such a miraculous thing and is really the icing on the cake as a parent.
Though Pepper is still in the very beginning of this journey, her personality is now more obvious then ever. She's a little girl, folks. A little girl.
At six months Pepper...
...is wearing 3-6 month clothes.
...sleeps from 6pm to 6am with three feeds.
...still takes four hour-long naps each day.
...gets so excited to play in her exersaucer. She bounces and kicks her legs all day long.
...can finally find her pacifier and successfully place it in her mouth.
...has the greatest smile.
...has had a few episodes of uncontrollable giggles. Can't wait for more!
...seems to enjoy solid food but doesn't open her mouth for the spoon.
...gets extremely excited and smiley whenever Maggie is around or gives her an ounce of attention.
