My little sweet pea is 6 moths old (well, more than that actually, I just got around to posting these).
What's she up to?
This little person has come alive with personality lately.
Talking: Seriously, almost. She makes sounds like seem as if she is saying "mama," "dada," "hiiiii," and "oh no." It's too cute. And there is a LOT of babbling. Tons. Loud too. SO LOUD. She sings and yells and exclaims all the time. Most of the time happy stuff. Sometimes not. But she's perfect to me.
Eating: Oh boy! This little peepster will eat anything we give her and also anything we don't like tags, books, toys, hands, and your face. My secret favorite is when she is done with her bottle and is looking fr something else to eat and she lands on my chin or nose. I let it go for a minute before I giver her the pacifier. Only a mother knows that this is cute, otherwise it sounds creepy. She has mastered sweet potatoes, peas, green beans, apples, pears and squash. We are going to slowly incorporate other foods like avocado, yogurt and some meats int he next few weeks.
Size: The doctor loves her. She always compliments us on her (ahhhh proud parent moment) and says she wants to take TNT on her rounds all day. So cute. She also says in a cute tone, 'You're nosy, you're nosy," because our Peeps is so curious. This baby is now ?? inches, 19lbs and has a head circumference of ??. What does that mean? Means she's doing awesome.
Sleeping: Another plus of having a monster appetite is that little Miss Taylor is a good sleeper generally. Sometimes she does not feel like napping because she just cannot miss any of the fun during the day, but mostly she does fantastic. Bedtime is about 745pm and she sleeps until 630am. Usually.
Movement: Rolling over! Check. Finally She doesn't love it though. She can sit up now on her own which is a BIG milestone for babies. She can pick things up and hold her own bottle too (which she loves). She LOVES LOVES LOVES her exersaucer (Thanks Aunt Jamie) and it usually causes some kind of poo-explosion that require a bleach wash. HAHA - mom humor. She moves her arms and hands well and kicks the little legs and feet all the time - ESPECIALLY in the bath. She loves the bath now most likely because she can "go" in it freely and suck on the washcloth. Is that gross? Let's go with no -she's a baby.
Teeth: Not so much. Drooling like a champ and gumming and gnawing on everything. But no teeth.
Hair: She lost a TON. I do think it's coming back now, but she was born with a bunch of dark hair. Not sure if she will have curls - we will wait and see.
What else: TNT loves books, funny noises, funny jokes, songs, and general silliness. She smiles from ear to ear when you come into the room and say hi to her. She is not afraid of strangers and is generally good for others. She is a JOY for everyone that knows her. Thank you my little Peepster - you are the best thing in the world to me. 6 months really did go by fast. I love you my sweet baby.
Here's the 6 month photo shoot for you:
|Reading a book. One of her favorites.|
|The tummy. My mom said it looks like dough. So cute! Zerbert!!!|
|Ready for a ride!|
|This is the best. TNT laughs HEARTILY when I tickle her of something just strikes her funny.|
|The little hands. I always try to get a hand and foot shot each month. She's so fast it's hard to get a decent one.|
