Oakley Berlin- 6 months

The time has flown by and our baby is already 6 months old (she actually turned 6 months on the 4th, but I'm way behind)!
Berlin:
-is 27" tall and weighs 18 lbs
-wears size 6-12mo clothes
-wears size 3 diapers
-just started eating rice cereal and is very good at keeping it in her mouth
-also started eating baby biscuits and gnawing on apple slices and loves those as well
-is still nursing every 3-4 hours except one meal is rice cereal
-can sit up by herself for several minutes, but is still pretty wobbly and can fall over easily
-can stand holding our hands
-smiles easily and can get laughing pretty hard at games where we come at her or nibble her ribs
-loves snuggles and being held
-hates being away from the action.  When she is eating and can hear Liv and dad playing, she has to turn and watch
-is obsessed with Olivia.  She gets so excited when Liv pays attention to her or plays with her
-loves her binky and can put it in her own mouth, sometimes finding the clip on her shirt and then reeling her binky in on the ribbon like a fish
-loves to hold hands.  When she is sad, all she needs is a hand to hold and she will stop crying most of the time
-still will NOT take a bottle
-is not a big fan of the car seat or her swing
-tolerates her bouncer seat or bumbo for short periods of time
-loves to play with toys and immediately reaches for things she has dropped
-loves to give "kisses".  She'll grab the skin on our necks with her sharp little nails (yowza!) and pull us onto her open mouth.  It's sweet and painful.
-likes to taste everything
-takes a 2 hour nap in the morning, a 1.5 hour nap after lunch, and a 45 minute nap late afternoon.  She goes to bed at 7:30 and just started sleeping in her nursery this week, which she loves and has done so well since I'm not waking her up when I go in to bed.
-is still so sweet and calm.  I can take her anywhere and not worry about her being a problem or distraction

We got Olivia's old jumper out of the closet the other day and Berlin is sooo funny in it!  As soon as I put her in it, she is all business.  Jumping determinedly like she is training for the olympics and cannot be distracted.  Her face is so serious while she jumps.

Berlin can't sit by Olivia without trying to maul her.  She looks like a bloodthirsty little vampire because as soon as Liv sits by us (to read a book, watch a show, whatever), Berlin grabs her shirt and goes in, open-mouthed to latch onto whatever body part she can get ahold of with her gums.  Liv is super patient with her, but usually ends up sitting on the arm of the couch, out of reach

She is super patient with Olivia's rough play, but will usually look for mom when she sees big sis coming, to make sure there is a referee close by
