Seriously?! I have a 6 month old baby girl already. These last 6 months have gone by way too fast for my liking. I'm hoping that the next 6 months slow down just a tad =)
Miss Alyx turned 6 months on Monday. She is changing so much and I notice different things about her almost every day now.
We had Alyx's 6 month well child check yesterday. And my poor little girl had 3 shots =( She did well though. She cried as soon as they did them for only a couple of minutes, and then she was good to go!
So here are Miss Alyx's 6 month stats:
Weight: 15 pounds!!
Length: 26 inches
Clothing: 6 months mostly and she can even still fit into some 3-6 months clothing
Diapers: Size 2
Sleeping: Oh does she like to sleep! We put her to bed right around 8:00 pm and she falls right to sleep and wakes up in the morning around 7:00-7:30. She naps a couple of times throughtout the day, but the naps usually doesn't last too long. Sometimes she will surprise us and nap for a couple of hours.
Feedings: 7ozs of formula every 4 hours or so. She also loves her food! Sweet Potatoes is by far her very favorite. She also likes green beans, peas, carrots, apple sauce, bananas, and her most recent try was pear/raspberry. And whenever we are eating she keeps a very close eye on us and tries to grab food from us =) Our doctor told us we could start introducing small pieces of Ritz crackers to her. I'm anxious to see how she does with them!
She is grabbing onto *everything* these days. Her most favorite thing to grab...Emma's hair!! Right now Emma thinks it is just absolutely funny when Alyx does it...but i'm certain she will soon get sick of it =)Everything that Alyx gets her hands on, goes straight into her mouth! She loves to grab your cheeks with both hands and open her mouth up wide and pull your face into hers. It's the cutest thing ever. And then she just giggles away.
She's such a happy baby, and always smiling. Our first couple of weeks were pretty rough with her, when we were trying to figure out if she was colic or had acid reflux, but she's turned out amazing!!
Happy 6 months baby girl!! I'm thankful every single day that I was picked to be your momma, and love you to pieces!!
