Selena's Half Birthday

Selena is 6 months old now and it is amazing how fast the past 6 months have gone. My little tiny helpless baby is gone and we have a bigger, baby who can do lots of things like scoot and roll around, remain sitting if we put her there, remain standing for a little bit if we put her there. She has started eating solid foods and can use the spoon herself. She has gone on a growth spurt the last couple of months and actually increased in the both the height and weight percentiles.

Floyd has gone back to school and I officially quit my job, however I am working part time from home for an unknown interim. I have joined some mom's groups to keep us busy, since Selena loves to go out and meet people, and tends to dislike staying at home. Whenever we go out she smiles at everyone and they comment on what a happy a baby she is, however when we get home she seems very unsatisfied and is constantly whining. Part of the problem is that she is teething. It is also good for me to get out of the house and make some new friends.

I am looking forward to the holidays. I think it will be a lot of fun dressing her up for Halloween, getting together with family for Thanksgiving, and all the Christmas festivities.
