At her last 6 mos. apointment Summer was 15 1/2 lbs and 26 1/2 inches. In babyland that's a little below average weight, yet tall. Dr. Lepler said she's doing great! He also noticed her top teeth were on there way.
Sure enough a week later the top teeth are making an appearance. She's not too thrilled about this. The second time around is no fun and it makes eating even more challenging!
Although, Daddy seems to have the magic touch when it comes to eating. She wouldn't touch the applesauce for me but when dad does it somehow it tastes better. In other words, Ron has a new job- "baby feeder."
She may not be the biggest eater yet, but she sure loves to talk. Her ahhhhs and uhhhhs have turned into more recognizable sounds like ba-ba-ba-ba and ah-ba and ma-ma-ma. It's especially enjoyable to be seranaded at 6:15 in the morning to ba-ba-ba-ba. Who needs a rooster!

...and falling down
On Mother's Day she sat in a high chair for the first time. She liked it!
And my personal favorite, we finally found a food she likes. Bananas!! You can just throw that rice cereal right out the window. Remember that funny face she made the first time she tried the cereal? Well she's been making it ever since. Not a fan! Today we tried bananas and she eagerly opened her mouth with each bite. And here's what's left of the banana:

We could not get a picture of the mean peacock because he confronted us and we had to run for our lives. I'm not kidding! Ask Uncle Mike. Arn't birds suppose to avoid people? Not this guy. He jumped right in front of us when we were trying to leave and practically followed us to the car. I'd hate to run into that bully bird in a dark alley.
Anyway, We had a very nice hike regardless of the mayhem. It was hot, but we ended with a shady picnic lunch. As you can see, Summer got a nice nap out of the deal! Thanks again to my brother for these great pictures.
