I love your messy hair, your chubby fingers, you perfectly tiny chin and the way you get so excited and do this little hop anytime I stand you up on your feet.
- from mama’s letter to you
What you weigh – 11 lbs. 8 oz.
What you eat – Still nursing! Like a little champ I might add. You still eat about every three hours.
How you sleep – We were sleeping you on your tummy for naps for quite awhile, but then you started waking up because you’d roll over and hit the side of the crib. So, we started swaddling you again, and you don’t seem to care either way! Your naps have stretched back out a little bit since we started dropping your 4th one. Sometimes you still take it if you’re really tired, but sometimes you are okay to skip it. Your morning nap is the longest, usually about an hour and a half to two hours. Your other naps are usually about an hour. At night you sleep perfectly, going down at about 8:30 and sleeping until 7 or 7:30. We still give you a dreamfeed at about 10:30, but you don’t really wake up for it. It’s going to be really hard for me to give up that last feed…it’s my favorite time of night.
What you wear – Mostly 3-6 month, unless it’s a sweater, most of which seem to run big.
Diaper – Still wearing Bum Genius Freetime on the smallest setting. Still loving them!
Favorite activities – Being lifted up in the air on your tummy, talking, eating, reaching for things, taking your bath, cuddling with mama or daddy, sitting in your highchair playing with kitchen utensils, bathtime, sitting up, being tickled
Least favorite activities – being laid down on your changing table when you’re hungry, waiting to eat. That’s pretty much it! You are a happy little baby!
Big moments in your sixth month of life – 1st Christmas, 1st trip to south Texas to meet the McCoys, 1st time to sit up! 1st time to sit in a high chair at a restaurant
