6 Months Checkup

In classic Haven style, as soon as the words come from my mouth, she proves me wrong. We haven't seen any teeth yet!
On Tuesday we went to the pediatrician for her 6 month appointment. She got 4 vaccinations; one by mouth and three by shots :(. I'm thinking, if you can put one vaccination into a syrup for her to drink, why can't you make all of them like that? Oh well, she did an amazing job and didn't even start to cry until the end of the second shot. Then as soon as I picked her up, she even looked at the nurse and grinned ("Don't worry, lady, I forgive you").
She's 17lbs, 2oz and 26" long. This is still about the 75% for her age group. We're green light for solids, sippy cups and all the mess that comes with. We've already started solids, but Haven had apple juice for the first time and it seems to be a big hit. It also seemed to attribute to two (count them, two) blow-outs and new outfits yesterday. Whoops. I'm still getting used to how much she should have, etc.
She's so close to crawling. She can easily move herself across the floor with an army crawl, so everything in the den is now baby-proofed and she can roam free. Usually, while she's inching around, she'll get onto hands and knees and move one "step." Then, it's back to her tummy and she continues to inch.
She's so much fun with her grins and giggles. I will try to get some good videos this weekend.
We love you!!
