6 month old beauty !

Wow!! I can't believe Ava is 6 months old. Where did my newborn baby go? She seems like such a big girl now but I love this stage. She has such a great personality and is just such a sweetheart. Her newest thing she has started to do is stand while holding on to a chair also she has found her tongue and clicks it all the time! Haha. We went for her 6 month checkup yesterday and here are her 6 months stats:

weight: 15lb 10oz - 50 percentile
length: 26 inches - 55 percentile
diet: breastfeeding and rice cereal; will start fruits and oatmeal
milestones: sits all by herself, rolls over from both sides, stand
while holding on to chair,

She also got 3 more shots yesterday, I HATE this, as does every mommy! The pediatrician also offered me a job to work with her. I was flattered but for now our schedule works out best with me working overnight at the hospital and plus I don't think I would like giving other babies shots all day long while their mommies hold them down. No thank you. In other news, my mom and dad and sisters will be visiting for the weekend!! They live in Tampa, that is where we are from but we moved to the other coast of Florida 4 years ago. Can't wait to see them, we haven't all been together since Christmas. My youngest sister recently moved over to the east coast with her fiance, so at least I have some family around. All of hubby's family is still in Tampa also. We hope to make it back over that way once hubby is ready to start a practice. We miss everyone so much!
Here are some of our 6 months photos......
