Willa is 6 months old. Ahh! We are loving this stage. She is so interactive and smiley and giggly. (not that this picture shows that)

She's getting really good at sitting up and playing with toys. She moves in a circle when she's on her back and she scoots backwards when she's on her tummy. I'm not sure she realizes she's doing it. She cracks up laughing when we talk like pirates to her or make funny noises.

She sat up in the shopping cart for the first time this week. She loved it. She is such a curious little girl and loves to look around. She didn't keep her eyes or head still while we were in Target. And she held on for dear life the whole time. I was such a proud little mommy.
We started feeding her rice cereal. She does a good job and seems to like it. Especially when we heat it up a little for her.

Her favorite book is Feely Bugs and her favorite song is Jesus Wants Me for a Sunbeam. She loves pacifiers and swinging. Her favorite toy is a stuffed turtle that crinkles and rattles.

We went to the pediatrician this week. She weighs 15 pounds, 10 ounces (50%) and is 26 1/4 (75%) inches tall.
