6 month check-up

It's that time again! We went to the doctor's this morning and here is the update!

Weight: 15 pounds 10 1/2 ounces 49 percentile
Height: 26 1/4 inches 74 percentile
Head: 17 1/4 inches 76 percentile

Her head and weight went down on the chart since last visit but no concern there obviously. She is still healthy and happy!
The doctor was amazed that she was already commando crawling. He said I have an advanced little girl and congratulated me! I couldn't help but be proud of Marisa! =o)

Also, Marisa recently has started pulling this new face at random times. I don't know why she does it! I was able to get a picture of her doing it. I almost pee my pants everytime I look at this picture. What is she doing???

Lastly, yesterday I finished eating a box of Nerds and when I was done Marisa wanted the box. So I gave it to her thinking that in a few seconds I will take it away from her. But within seconds I had already forgotton. So....while I was turning off the TV and putting clothes away....she ate the flaps of the box!!!

I freaked out of course and put my finger in her mouth so I can feel for it and get it out but I was too late. Right when I took my finger out, she looked at me...and then swallowed. Oh geez!

I've been tagged!

I've been tagged, so here it goes!

The rules: Player lists 6 facts/habits about themselves, At the end of the post, player then tags 6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blog and posts a comment letting them know they've been tagged and asking them to read our blog for the rules.

1. I am totally OCD about my house. Everything has to be exactly in its place. I can tell if someone moves an item an inch to the left or right or whatever. It drives me crazy! I like to have a nice house with nice things and I basically like to have my house look like a display from a store. I don't know what I am going to do when I have several kids!

2. Speaking of stores, I am obsessed with Pottery Barn! I must admit, there are a few things that I can't get myself to buy because I think they are overpriced so I love to find a room I like from a PB catalog and copy it exactly by buying look-a-likes from Target, Bed Bath and Beyond, Bombay, etc. But there are definetly a few things from Pottery Barn that I HAVE to buy. Some things just can't be replaced.

3. I am also obsessed with Oprah! haha I know, wierd. I just wish I had her job!

4. Anyone that really knows me knows that I am addicted to juice. I literally crave it. I have to have it! I wake up wanting juice, I need juice with every meal, and even when I wake up in the middle of the night, I WANT JUICE! Tim says that all his hard earned money goes to juice but he loves milk just as much as I love juice, so we are even. =o)

5. Have any of you watched a movie and wished you had some of the powers/abilities that some of the characters have? Well, I have! For example, when I watched Catwoman, with Halle Barry, I really wished I could have her kick butt powers. When I watched Oceans 11, I wished I could be amazingly sneaking and clever like all those boys! When I read and watched Harry Potter, I wished I was wizard so I can do magic! And the lists goes on and on....haha.

6. And lastly, like most girls, I love shopping! If money weren't an issue I would seriously shop every single day of my life. That is one happy life! haha

Ok, I now tag...Megan Hilton, Kelsi Rose, Steph Rich, Kari Call, Sara Hart, and Emily Nelson. Have fun!

Yeah for Veggies!

Marisa has successfully completed all of her vegetables! Now I just have to make sure she eats her greens for the rest of her life. Tricky...

My sweetie eating Sweet Potatoes!

Happy 6 months!

Happy 6 month birthday Marisa!! This morning dad and I were in awe that we are parents of an absolute beautiful 6 month old baby girl! We LOVE you with all our hearts! MUAH!

Green Beans

Marisa's face after eating green beans for the first time. According to the face, she is either fully satisfied or she wants to puke. And I just want to eat up her cheeks!

Sittin' Pretty

As I have said before, Marisa has started sitting! I still have to be close to her because she can flop to the floor kinda hard, but she gets better and better at it everyday. My pretty precious baby!

For some reason she started coughing while I was taking a picture. This picture is hilarious!

Pumpkin Patch

We went to the Irvine Park Railroad this afternoon to have some fall fun with good friends of ours. The park had a hayride, a train ride, picture stands, a haunted house, a haymaze, and best of all, a pumpkin patch! It felt good to get out and enjoy the cool fall atmosphere.

What a cute Frankenstein!

Marisa trying to eat the pumpkin. What else is new?

Marisa and Emma really enjoyed each other and they were so happy looking at everything! It was really hard to get them to look at the camera because they were so distracted with all the fun things.

A Blanket Burrito

I had laid Marisa onto a completely flat blanket before I took a shower. When I got out of the shower, Marisa had somehow rolled herself up into a burrito.

Daddy's Little Girl

Despite the fact that I slave all day and that every ounce of my being is dedicated to making Marisa happy and comfortable, she is totally a "Daddy's Girl". Even though Tim has been out of town for the past two weeks, Marisa still knows her daddy and wants to spend every waking minute with him.
In fact, every morning Marisa will not go to sleep for her morning nap until daddy is gone. It is so funny because literally the second he shuts the door she is ready. If I try to put her down before he leaves, forget it! Also, whenever I put my arms out to Marisa for her to come to me she doesn't really come to me, only sometimes, but Tim just has to stand near us and she will very happily lunge forward to him. Marisa will also smile anytime daddy even looks at her. She watches his every move and you can see it in her eyes that all she wants to do is be with him. A couple of times Marisa has rolled right next to Tim's stomach and nestled herself right next to him to cuddle. And lately, Marisa will crawl to him no matter where he is in the room and just chill next to him. Today she crawled underneath the coffee table to place her head on his feet and just laid there.

Daddy made her smile during dinner today when she decided to wear her oatmeal cereal on her face. Doesn't that face just say, "I'm daddy's little girl" all over it?!

Marisa laughing while her and daddy wrestled.

MMMmm...Me gusta!

I introduced Marisa to carrots today. She LOVED it! Marisa would say, "MMMmmm" and then open her mouth really wide for more.

There was hardly a break between bites!

Elbows and Knees

Before babies first start to crawl, they get on their hands and knees, rock back and forth, and then slowly over time, they begin to crawl. But the rocking back and forth is kinda the basis of learning how to crawl. Well, Marisa did just that this morning, but put her own twist on it. She was on her elbows and knees instead.
While I was getting for the day, Marisa was playing on the floor in our living room. I needed to wait for my hair straightner to heat up so I decided to go play with Marisa for a little bit. I just sat there watching her trying to reach for a toy. She usually rolls around and twists in all sorts of ways to get to the toy but this morning she decided to do something else! She got on her elbows and knees, rocked back and forth, and then lunged forward with one hand up so she can reach her toy! I freaked out!!! I think I scared her because she looked at me like, "Ok, crazy lady." Like any mother, I smoothered her with kisses and praise because she is starting yet another milestone in her life. A minute later she did it again! This time she looked at me and smiled right after. Tim and I better watch out! Marisa will soon be taking over the house! Oh wait, she already does...haha.

Good-bye September

September has come and gone. Time is definetly flying by. Marisa is now 5 months old going on 6 months. Here are a few random pictures of her during September!

Marisa rolled across the room to get to the Gatorade bottle. I looooove this pic!

So this was soo random. During dinner she just leaned back in her Bumbo and stayed like that for awhile. I guess it was comfortable?!

As always, being cute after a bath!

Marisa rolled away from me when I was trying to change her. And then she stuck her tongue out at me. haha
