6 month Stats

 This post is incredibly late, I know. Due to Spring Break and scheduling conflicts we just got Alison in for her 6 month check up & shots on Friday. The Pediatrician was very impressed by her growth and her sitting posture :) 
  • Age: 6 months 21 days / 28 weeks 6 days
  • Weight: 16 lb 9 1/2 oz (50%) as of 4/19/13
  • Height:  26 1/2 in (50-75%) as of 4/19/13
  • Head Circumference: 16 1/2 in (25%) as of 4/19/13
  • Hair Color:  Light Golden Brown
  • Eye Color: Blue  
  • Diaper Size:  Size 3
  • Clothing Size:  9 months
  • Mommy's Favorite: Her laugh, The way she "spit-talks", How she looks like a pretty little flower when she sits up,her hugs, our nighttime routine. 
  • Daddy's Favorite:  Feeding her new foods, her smile,going out to eat with her, When she laughs at "play yelling" (its so cute - he'll say I told you not to pull my hair with a smile, and she'll just laugh and laugh)
  • Favorite Toys By Month:
    • October= monkey rattle
    • November= giraffe music box stuffed animal
    • December= bumble bee toy
    • January =  knit doll
    • February = wooden teethers
    • March =  her "box of fun" (Thanks Megan!!)
    • April = bunny book
  • Sleep: We seem to be in a good spot with her sleep patterns. Ever since we got a sleep sack she's more or less sleeping through the night again (thank goodness) baring a quick wake up once or twice just for a pacifier. Still not wonderful, but it only takes a moment to get her to back to sleep. Naps are still a thorn in our side - she just wants to sleep on me and is very persistent on doing so. We've almost broken her of it, but not completely. Our big girl only naps twice now - around 9:30 and again around 1 or so, for anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours a stretch. UPDATE - She is now napping in her crib after minimal fussing. Still not LONG naps, but they are gradually getting better :)
  • Feeding: She's an efficient little eater for sure! She nurses every three hours (or so) and only for about 4-8 minutes. I used to worry that it wasn't enough, but she sure is growing! We started solids a week before she turned 6 months and she eats a meal of peas, carrots, or avocados once a day, before bathtime at night. She loves trying to feed herself!! UPDATE: We're now feeding solids twice a day mixed with a little oatmeal.
