Thea turned 6 months old last week. I still don't know how time can be flying by so fast! She weighs 14 lbs 13 oz (25%, which is great b/c that is always where she is so she is growing steadily) & is still about 26" tall. Her excema was flaring up last week, but using Aveeno Soothing Cream a few times a day has really helped.
In the past week started sitting up. Then I gave her her 1st hair cut b/c her hair was in her eyes. I was nervous, but it wasn't as hard as I thought and everyone says it looks good. Then I started feeding her foods. I am amking all of her baby food. We started out with mashed avacodos and she does great with them. The first feeding, she was even grabbing the sppon and trying to feed herself. And, somehow, feeding her is not as messy as I figured it would be. Also, she can hold herself up standing up.
She hasn't been sleeping well, but she had been sick then all this new stuff has been going on. Plus she might have been having a growth spurt so she was wanting to nurse more often at night. But last night she slept longer than she ever has before so I am hoping we have turned the corner on that. I was getting even more tired than usual. Until last night, I don't think I had had more that two hours of sleep at a time for at least a couple of weeks.
here are a few milestone pics,... enjoy! (Don't worry, I will save a pic or two for Watch me Grow Wednesday )
Awwwe..She is so cute. In the pics where you are cutting her hair - she looks so serious, like she was concentrating on being still or something! Either that or in awe of the big sissors in font of her!
Very nice job on the hair cut!! You are going to be beating the boys off her when she gets older!!! She has such pretty eyes.
Sam, I really thought she would have brown eyes b/c Justin and I both do, but her eyes are still as blue as ever. I love them! Both her grandpa's have blue eyes, so I guess that is where they came from.
