Rosalie's 6 Month Check Up

Rosalie had her 6 month check up last week, and she did great! Can someone please tell me where the last 6 months have gone?! My baby girl is getting so big, so fast, and it is bittersweet. 
Her Stats:
Weight: 15 pounds 5 ounces
Height: 25.25 inches
Head Circumference: 16.25 inches

She is still small, but she took a huge leap in the percentile for her weight this time around. I don't have the paper, so I can't remember exactly, but she was in the 7th percentile at 4 months and I think she is now in the 21st percentile!
She was a happy girl for most of her appointment, and she even giggled for the nurse and won her over right away :) She only cried for about 10 seconds (if that) when she got her shots, and I was grateful. It was the cutest thing ever because as soon as I picked her up and snuggled her, she stopped crying and smiled right at the nurse. 

Chanse was even able to come for the appointment which was another plus! I love having him there when she has to get her shots.
Movement:
The doctor said that Rosalie is in great health, and that she is just taking her sweet time to roll over and sit up. She has a pretty laid back personality, and he said she will just do it when she is ready. When I was a baby I didn't crawl until I was over a year, and within a month I was crawling and walking, so I am not too worried about her. Right now she is working on rolling over, and has come pretty close several times :)
Personality:
This little girl has the best personality and it is showing more and more every single day! She loves to hear herself talk, and has started squealing with excitement for several minutes at a time. The last couple of times that she really decided to scream were at church and at the BYU Graduation. These obviously weren't the best locations for screaming, but I love her little squeal so much that I don't mind ;) She also LOVES to smile when she sees people, and of course this is the best thing ever. Her toothless smile is my favorite! 
She is a mama's girl through and through, and knows that mama will give her everything that she wants. I spend a good portion of my days holding her because I can and because I want to. That being said, we are working on getting her to use those muscles of hers. To help with that, I have been putting her in her jumper to work on her leg strength, and I have also been giving her extra tummy time and assisting her in rolling over.
I love how she puts her hands behind her head when she sleeps :)
Sleep:
In terms of sleeping she has been doing pretty good, and only wakes up once a night to nurse. She usually goes to be anywhere from 8 to 10, and then wakes up around 3 to 4 to nurse. She will then sleep until about 6 to 6:30 before she wakes up. She is an early riser, but so am I so I don't mind. She is still sleeping in the room with Chanse and I, and for the time being this is what makes me the most comfortable. But she does have a room of her own in our apartment now and I am working on putting together :)
Eating:
This little girl is still going strong with nursing, and is now eating all sorts of different baby foods! She nurses whenever she is hungry (normally about every 3 to 4 hours during the day), and eats baby foods in between most nursing sessions. 
She loves:
rice cereal
apple sauce w/ berries
apple sauce
bananas
bananas w/ berries
mangos
sweet potatoes
squash
green beans

dislikes:
meats
carrots
This little girl has changed my whole world for the better, and she helps me to see the good in each and every day. She makes me so happy in the mornings when she wakes up with a smile on her face, and I couldn't imagine my life without her. Chanse and I just love her so much!! Thanks for choosing us to be your parents sweet girl!!! :)
