Mya had a very exciting January as she began rolling all over the place. She enjoys sleeping on her belly and she can sit independently. She rides in shopping carts, swings in bucket swing at the park and sits at restaurants in high chairs. She also started sitting in her high chair regularly. She eats solid food 3-4 times per day. She loves carrots, sweet potatoes, and squash. She also enjoys wheat cereal with applesauce. So far, she's not a fan of any fruits and we have not given her any meat, which I doubt she will like. Mya may not love sugar because I over indulged with ice cream when I was pregnant with her. I'm not really sure why she doesn't have a sweet tooth yet, but I'm sure it's a good thing.
Bobby & I are very happy because at Mya's 6 mo check up we were given permission to change her formula from Alimentum (very expensive formula) to similac Advanced (regular formula). This is going to save us a bundle! We changed her over successfully towards the end of the month. Also, at her 6 month check up, she weighed in at 16 pounds and was 27 1/4" tall. 16 lbs put her in the 55th percentile, but her height put her in the 90th percentile. Mya attended her first baby shower and she loved playing with a balloon. On my birthday, she had her first taste of cake, which she didn't seem to like too much. She cut her first tooth on Jan 31st on the bottom. She is doing very well for being uncomfortable. This month we also changed her over from an infant car seat to a convertible car seat since she's so long and becoming such a big girl. She loves sitting on the floor and emptying out a basket of her toys. She enjoys playing with her Pal Violet (a leapfrog toy) and still enjoys jumping in her jumper.
