I’m a couple of weeks late on this one, sorry about that!
Our sweet little girl has hit the six month mark and continues to amaze us each day. From month 5 to 6 Addy has grown and changed so much. She is a pretty easy going baby, especially with all the move and change that has been going on. She loves going out and about running errands and shopping, interacting with other people, and going for walks in her stroller. We are still working on night time sleeping, but this will be something that we will work on in the next few weeks once our belongings have arrived. (I’ve counted and in the last 2 months we’ve slept in 6 different places! I’ve found it difficult to sleep at night too!)
Our last days in Indiana Addy started to roll over on an consistant basis. After a few days in Texas, she was quickly rolling from one side of the room to the other. She’s quick and as parents we quickly had to do some baby proofing!
Right after the adventures in rolling started to sit-up on her own. It started in short little bursts with help from mom and dad, then sitting and playing for long periods with mom and dad to sitting and playing on her own then laying down and rolling and playing on her own.
Addy is now exploring with food. She is still breastfed, but we have introduced her to solids following the Baby Led Weaning Method. I’ll post more on Addy’s eating adventures in the coming weeks. She has enjoyed pretty much everything that I’ve put in front of her. Strawberries continue to be her favorite thing to eat. They also tend to be the messiest so far!
We had our first Urgent Care experience right at the 6 month mark. Addy broke out in a rash aound her chest and under her arms late in the afternoon and evening. We weren’t able to get her into the doctor, but visisted a really nice peadiatric urgent care facility. The doctors thought it was just a skin reaction to something that she came in contact with. We’re not sure what exactly happened, but it was gone by the morning.
Our last big milestone for this past month was we had our first tooth pop through! It’s hard to get a picture of it because its still so tiny, but her smile is adorable.
Here are some final stats on Addy. She weighs about 16.5 pounds, eyes are still blue, and hair is still lacking. 🙂
Here are some 6 month pictures I took. I’m hoping to take a few more soon, but we’ve just not had enough time. She is getting tougher and tougher to get good photos of because she moves so much.
