Month Six

It's so hard to believe, but my sweet baby girl turned 6 months old on February 3rd!

MILESTONES:

-Sitting up, unsupported, for long periods of time.
-Rolling to get to where you want to go...quickly!
-Doing "crunches" in an attempt to go from laying down to sitting.
-Pulling knees up under you in an attempt at crawling.
-Blowing raspberries while eating.

TOOTH COUNT:

2 bottom teeth!

COMFORTS:

You began to play with my hair while you're nursing, and play with your ears while falling asleep. You have turned into a thumbsucker, complete with your finger hooked over your nose. Even though our future dentist bills may be huge, it's absolutely adorable!

EATING:

-You are still breastfed. You tend to eat every 4 hours, but you're still a very quick nurser. You're usually done in under 5 minutes, unless you start to fall asleep. You won't drink from a bottle, so I don't even bother pumping anymore.
-You still aren't a huge fan of solids. Sometimes you are interested, sometimes you refuse them. I have a freezer full of homemade foods, so you've been getting a wide variety to try!

SLEEPING:

-We lucked out in this department! You are a great sleeper! You take 2-3 long naps a day, and sleep 12 hours at night. After 2 hours of being awake during the day, you tend to get sleepy.

LIKES:

-Pumpkin baby food.
-Looking out the window.
-Jumping in your jumperoo.
-Playing with your Sophie the Giraffe toy.
-Laughing at your brother and sister.
-Splashing in the tub.
-Snuggling with Mama.

DISLIKES:

-Having a dirty diaper.
-Getting your nose wiped.

Photobucket

STATS:

-Size 2 diaper.
-3-6 month and some 6-9 month clothes.
-18 lbs, 28.5 inches long. (50-75th percentile for weight and above the 97th percentile in height).

PERSONALITY:

You are the sweetest, happiest, most easy-going baby! Crying is still very rare for you. You are a joy to be around!

CUTENESS FACTOR:

Through the roof! From your light blond fluffy mohawk to your big blue eyes to your button nose to your dimpled cheeks to your big grin...you've got me hooked, baby girl!

Dear Liliana,

It has been 6 months since you entered the world, and brightened our lives. I can't imagine my world without you in it!

When you smile, you smile with all your being. You lift my spirits every morning by beaming at me. There is something so special about you, and that is your joy. Your happiness is contagious!

The first half of your first year has flown by, and is now in the past. Gone is my tiny newborn. But that's okay. Because every single day with you is a blessing.

I love you, Lilybug. Always and forever.

Love, Mommy
