7 months

7 months



Clothes: Lacey still fits really well in Carter's 3 month clothes, but I have been slowly adding her 6 month clothes into the mix because I am tired of her 3 month clothes.

Sleep: We recently just went to Utah to visit, which threw off Lacey's sleep schedule. We are working to get her back on track. I feel like our battle to get Lacey to sleep a decent amount is never going to end.

Milestones: She is great at sitting up all by herself. She is starting to "crawl" if you can call it that. She is also doing really well eating solid foods.

Firsts this month:
  • First tooth
  • First time eating cheerios
  • First time eating watermelon
  • First time sitting by herself in the tub
  • First time meeting her uncle Parker, uncle Steve, and aunt Heidi
  • Meeting her great grandma Nevada

  • Playing soccer

Likes:
  • Looking at herself in a mirror and giving herself kisses
  • Being outside
  • Being in her stroller as long as the sun isn't in her face
  • Any attention she can get from anyone
  • Eating food all by herself
  • Kisses from her mommy and daddy, she giggles and squeals the whole time
  • Sitting in the tub by herself and splashing.

  • Walking around, holding mommy's fingers
  • Eating in her big girl chair (making a mess, I haven't let her get this messy since, haha.)

Dislikes:
  • Going to church for 3 hours
  • Green baby food
  • Being held by other people when her mommy is standing there
  • Being sick
Things I want to remember

  • We watched our neighbor's little girl one day. Lacey was asleep when they brought her over, and when she woke up I put her down next to our neighbor. This was her reaction, she did this for like 10 minutes straight.

  • Lacey thinks that she is one of the big kids. Every time she sees any kids playing she starts kicking her legs, smiling, and giggling. She is so ready to be able to run around with all the big kids.
  • Lacey absolutely adores our neighbors, Max, Luke, and Jack. Sometimes we can hear them in the hall when they are coming in from outside and Lacey will get a big smile on her face and start kicking her legs.

6 months

6 months



Stats
Length: 24.5 inches
Weight: 13 lbs 7 oz

Clothes: Carter's 3 months clothes fit her really well right now, but the 6 month clothes are a little to big. Pajamas must run smaller because she is in the 6 month pajamas already.

Sleep: Just this past couple weeks we have given sleep training another go. Some nights she goes down without a peep where other nights she will cry for 10-20 minutes before she falls asleep. She is still only sleeping 3 hours at a time, but that is so much better than the 30 minutes to an hour that she was giving me. Now I need to figure out how to wean her off the night feedings.

Milestones: She is starting to get much better at sitting up on her own. We still have some work to do, but she does great sitting in a Boppy. She has started reaching for people(mostly me) when she is being held by people that she doesn't know.

Firsts this month:
  • She scoots on her back to reach things over her head. I don't think she knows that she is moving, but between arching her back and straightening her legs she moves a little. 
  • Swinging in the "big girl" swing at the park
Likes:
  • Looking at herself in a mirror, she just squeals and kisses(licks/eats) the mirror
  • Jumping in the Jumperoo, especially if there is a mirror in front of her. 
  • Being outside
  • Being in her stroller as long as the sun isn't in her face
  • Any attention she can get from her mommy and daddy 
  • Sucking on her bows. I don't know what it is about her bows, but she prefers them to any of her toys
  • Kisses from her mommy and daddy, she giggles and squeals the whole time
  • Taking baths
Dislikes:
  • Going to church for 3 hours
  • Green beans, Peas
  • When I leave the room, even if I wasn't playing with her at the time
Things I want to remember
  • Lacey loves to snuggle with me when she gets tired. 
  • She is the most smiley baby that I have ever met, and she has learned how to squeal when she gets really excited.
