6 months

Dear Baby girl-

WOW where has the time gone I can not believe you are 6 months old! It seems like you were just a newborn yesterday- we were getting up every 2 hours 45 min. to feed and comfort you because you did not sleep well.  Now you are a champion sleeper {at night} you have a harder time sleeping during the day!

You are wearing size 3 diapers they are huge compared to the newborn ones you came home in! You are also wearing 6-9 month clothes and are growing so fast! Yesterday at your 6 month check up you weighed 17 lb. 14 oz- that is almost over 10 pounds you have gained in just 6 months!

You are such a mover we can not keep you still you crawl all over the living room and flip from tummy to back and back again all the time- you are sitting up all by yourself and believe it or not you are trying to pull up on daddy and me.  You love to stand {with support} and Dr. Kat thinks you will be walking by 9 months {we will see!}

You eat like a champ too- in the morning you are having rice cereal or oatmeal {we will be adding fruit today I hope it goes well!} then you have several bottles during the day followed by veggies for your evening meal you love sweet potatoes, and green beans!

You love bath time and pool time- you are truly a water baby! Too bad we have to limit your water and outside time because your skin is sooo dry {eczema} :(

You are such a joy and delight to have in our life I can not imagine a day without you- your laughter ans squeals are my favorite sounds and I would be truly be lost without you!

Some days I wish you would stop growing, but others I am so excited to see what you will do next- Keep growing strong and smart you beautiful girl Mommy and Daddy love you so much!
