Hadley- 6 Months


It's your half-birthday!  How in the world are you already 6 months old?  It's so surreal to me that 6 months have passed since you were born.  I still remember that day like it was yesterday.

You are learning so much these days!  I can see the wheels constantly turning in your head and your eyes just light up when you figure something out.  You are in to everything and that's just the way I like it!  You can't crawl yet.  You either roll over and over to your destination or you scoot your face across the ground.  Both ways are hilarious! :)  I'm sure you will be on the move any day now!

This month:

  • You weigh 14 pounds, 14 ounces and are 25 1/2 inches long!
  • You still wear a size 2 diaper.
  • You are wearing a mixture of 3-6 month and 6 month outfits.
  • We are still trying to teach you sign language!  I'm hoping at some point it will start to click.
  • You nurse about every 4 hours during the day and once around 5 in the morning.
  • You are going to bed about 7:30, waking up about 8:15 for a feed, and typically are down until 5 am.  You eat and go back to bed until 7 or 8!
  • You still get one bottle a day.  We are up to 6 ounces! Yay!
  • You started solid foods!!  You were eye-balling our dinner, starting to wake up at night, and just seemed ready.  You've had baby oatmeal, sweet potatoes, avocado, and carrots.
  • Still no teeth!  Drooling like crazy, but your gums are still just pink as can be!
  • You sit up like a champ!  Rarely falling over these days.  
  • You have started to make "word" sounds.  Your very first--"mama mama" :)  I don't count it as your first word, but that is a beautiful sound to my ears.

  • Stacking cups!  You love to knock them down.
  • Anything you can chew on!  Books, teether toys, cellphones...
  • Your activity table!
  • playing with tissue paper, you love the crinkle!
  • Spending time with mommy and daddy.  You do not like to be alone!
  • Sweet potatoes, baby oatmeal, and carrots!
  • Sitting in your high chair.  I'm not sure why this is such a struggle.
  • Solid food.  You started off loving it, but have recently starting crying through it.
  • Avocados!  You gagged through your avocado meal. Haha!
  • Having your diaper changed!  You don't like to be still for that long, ha!

Thank you so much, my sweet girl, for making me a mommy six months ago.  These have been the hardest, most blessed six months of my life.  I love watching your little personality blossom and know you are headed for wonderful things.  I love you, love you, love you, Hadley!
