6 months and solids

Today was Ada's 6 month pediatrician visit. Here are her "stats":

Age: 6 days shy of 6 months.
Weight: 17 lbs 10 oz. and 26.5 inches
Size (diapers, onesies, etc.): Size 2-3 diapers and 9 month old clothes (some 6mos still fit and some 12 mos. fit already)
Eyes: Blue/gray with an inner rim of brown like Tim's eyes have
Hair: It's coming in so slowly. There is still a prominent bald spot.
Sleeping: sleeping through the night - we are incredibly blessed. She is a great napper too.
Milestones: Clear to start solids!
Words/sounds: She is still in the pterodactyl phase. It is beyond hysterical to watch her be so pleased with herself. It must feel good or something.
What we are looking forward to: I am unnaturally excited about starting solids. This is going to be so much fun!

As soon as our pediatrician said we could start solids we got really excited. Her first food was oatmeal. Here is a photo essay on how it went:
