6 months

6 months

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
  • 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
  • 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.
