6 Months

Holy Cow. I cannot believe my little sweet pea is 6 months old. It just seems like we were headed to the hospital for my schedule c-section.

She's such an awesome, happy, smiley little girl. I'm not sure if its because Olivia is going though a terrible TERRIBLE stage right now, but I cannot remember he being so smiley as a baby. I'm probably mistaken though.

This is what Alex had been up to lately:

  • She's eating 5-6oz every 3 hours or so
  • She's sitting up on her own for a few minutes before she topples over
  • LOVES things with tags, links, crinkles, or lights
  • laughing at her big sister daily
  • has tried carrots, cereal, applesauce, sweet potatoes, and bananas and wants absolutely nothing to do with solid food
  • can roll back/belly, belly/back but she rarely flips herself off her belly
  • sleeping UNSWADDLED for a few weeks now *hoooooray*
  • wakes around 3am and 6am to eat
  • wakes up for the day around 9am *sometimes a little earlier*
  • naps for about 1.5-2 hours, 2 or 3 times a day
  • has a white spot/swollen gums on the bottom *could be weeks til it comes through though*
  • finally likes being in the swimming pool

Overall, she's a very happy and easy baby. If only she'd start sleeping all night long......

Here is a progression photo of the past 6 monthly photos:

1-3 months
4-6 Months

Here is a side by side comparison of Olivia and Alex at the same age. Notice the weight difference. Olivia was 19lbs at 6 months, I'm guessing Alex is probably around 16lbs. *Her appointment is tomorrow*
