Happy half birthday!

My sweet baby girl is 6 months old!  Rachel here.  It's hard to believe she's been here half of a year already!
 Sweet girl is 15 lbs and some change and 25ish inches long.  She's in 6-12 month clothes, spilling out of a size 2 diaper, and in a size 2 shoe (which yes is still ridiculous... but seriously... SO CUTE!).
 Berkley is still NOT sleeping through the night.  I just don't know what's happened.  She came home from the hospital a champ!  It then when completely downhill around 3-4 months, and it's taken us a while to get to where we are now.  She wakes up anywhere from 2-4 and then again around 7-8.  From time to time she still attempts to wake up before 2, but we let her cry it out.  It's virtually impossible for me to get back to sleep after her middle of the night feeding.  I have too much on my mind a good chunk of the time, so I'm pretty desperate for her to get there.  She's just too cute though, so it's hard to be mad at her.  Another issue we're having at bedtime is the rolling over.  She's finally rolling over from back to belly like a champ and often gets herself stuck in her crib.  It's quite frustrating for her. 
 We're still very hit or miss when it comes to solids.  Baby girl could take it or leave it.  She's nursing 6-8 times a day/night, so I know she's getting plenty in that buddah of hers, but she can't nurse for the rest of her life... no matter what TIME magazine says. ;)
 We've been practicing sitting up, and she's getting stronger every day.  She loves playing with her feet and has even started to scoot a bit on her belly.  Once she's mobile, I'm fairly certain my life will be over. ;)
 Berkley is such a little sweetie bug and has a smile that lights up our lives.
