Chelsi started eating solids (well, if you can call baby food and rice cereal solids). She would get really cranky and upset every time she would see me eating, like she was thinking "hey, where's mine??" So I made up some rice cereal and she downed the stuff like it was her last meal. She is a really good eater and does great with both fruits and veggies (her favorite is squash). She also just got her third tooth the other day! Bring on the steak!!
Josh's mom was able to come out for a visit. She has definitely enjoyed spending time with Chelsi and I think Chelsi has enjoyed having grandma around. We made a trip to the San Diego Zoo and it was pretty fun - although Chelsi didn't look at a single animal while we were there. I guess you can't expect too much from a 6 month old, right?
Chelsi is really making up for being a little bit of a pill in her early days. She has been a little angel lately. She already has a few flights under her belt and has been amazing about 90% of the time. She's sleeping through the night and for the most part can fall asleep on her own. She loves to play with her toys, although sometimes she needs mom to sit and play with her. And she absolutely LOVES her Baby Einstein video (and to be completely honest, I get a little into it as well).
As you can see in these photos she is now sitting up on her own, she laughs and smiles for the camera, she eats a TON now and likes to feed herself her Cheerios and "puff treats" - although she doesn't quite get the concept of "one at a time" so that can get a little scary. At her 6 month appointment she weighed 15 lbs 4 oz and was 26 in tall. She is now 7 1/2 months old and feels like she weighs a whole lot more! But we are having a whole lot of fun with her! We think we'll keep her around for a while! =)
