At 6 months Paige-
-sits independently, although loves reaching for toys just out of her reach so she still falls over often
-puts everything in her mouth and loves to play with her toys either on the floor or in the hopper or saucer
-has her two bottom teeth
-says “ahhhh” pretty regularly and at times it really sounds like she is being a monster. Gotta love the brotherly influence in her life!
-is a chunk! Gone are her dainty legs. She now has huge thighs just like her brothers did! She weighs around 17 pounds and wears a size 3 diaper. Her clothes are mostly size 9 months and some 12 months.
-celebrated her half birthday at the doctor with her first sickness- a slight ear infection and croup. She handled it well but still has a deep raspy voice and cry.
-she naps 2-3 times a day in her crib or on the go in her car seat or stroller. She sleeps well most nights and gets up around 5 am to eat and goes back to sleep. Most mornings don’t begin at the same time so I’ve started waking her up around 8 so there is a chance for the three to nap at the same time in the afternoon (most days it doesn’t happen). Bedtime has gotten late again (9 or later some nights) but some of that might be our schedule more than her’s.
-loves her baby food. Applesauce was her first food and she has also had avocado, banana, pears, sweet potatoes, butternut squash, oatmeal, and prunes. Sweet potatoes and butternut squash are her favorites. I’ve been making some of her food with the baby bullet but when she tried oatmeal and bananas she almost threw up. Guess they weren’t smooth enough for her!
