HAPPY HALF BIRTHDAY TO MY EVY GIRL! I can't believe 6 months has flashed before our eyes already! It went by soooo fast! She has grown so much! Now when I see newborns I am in shock at how little they are and can't believe Evelyn was that little once-- and it's hard for me to believe that she was in my tummy haha. We are so excited for the next 6 months and all the fun things to experience together! 


Diaper Size: Size 3

Clothes Size: 6-12 months. depends on the brand

Health: Great! She has just got a little runny nose that comes and goes.

Sleep: I feel like we can all function! Evelyn sleeps the whole night. We sleep trained her last month and it's made all the difference in the world!

Diet: We have been feeding her Rice and Oatmeal Cereal the past month and to celebrate her being 6 months old we are going to start to introduce more food to her! I'm excited to see her reaction to all the new flavors. She is still on Similac Sensitive formula


Milestones: 

  • - learned how to sit up all by herself
  • - can be carried on our backs when we go hiking! yay! we are so excited to take her on more hikes! 
  • - rotates, meaning she does 360 turns on her back by kicking her legs and twisting her body
  • - can put her binki in her mouth by herself
  • - learning to hold her bottle by herself

LOVES

  • - touching faces. 9 times out of 10 if you put your face close to her she will reach out and grab your face
  • - singing. especially primary songs. whenever I sing to her she does some sort of a smile
  • - kicking her legs. in the tub, during tummy time, in the air when we hold her up. I think she is wanting to moooove. trying to figure out this scooting crawling thing
  • - lip rolls. she spits all. the. time. ya its messy haha especially cuz she decides the best time to do it is when she is eating rice cereal. turns meal time into a battle field for mama haha
  • - her jumperoo!
  • - snuggling blankets when she naps. I think she is getting attached to a specific blanket! It's funny because I had a specific blankie that I loved too. mother like daughter.
  • - drives and change of scenery. sometimes she gets so grumpy and we've found that if we change things up it makes her happy. cabin fever??? I feel ya girrrrl.
