6 months

I know, I know.

We used to be so good about actually updating this every.  Single.  Week.

Right, but that’s when I was just pregnant. Then the baby actually came…and…

Well…then I went back to work…
Then she started daycare…
Then spring semester started…
Then Mary got a new job with more responsibilities…

And then its like we blinked and we suddenly have a 6 month old who found her feet and is on the verge of sitting up on her own.  She has distinct preferences. She loves popping sounds, sleeping on her side, any teething toy.  She can be very fussy, but turn on Adele’s “Hello” and she is calm within 5 seconds.

She’s been in daycare now for almost 3 months.  She’s brought home some germs- a GI bug and pink eye…but other than that doing pretty well.  We love our daycare and her teachers are so nice.  I go by the daycare once a day to nurse her- and she is always being held and loved on.

Waiting for a baby seems to go by so much slower then actually watching the baby grow up.  She’s isn’t a newborn anymore, certainly not tiny.

She’s almost 16 pounds, and truthfully I have no idea how long she is but I will next week at her check up.

And we’ve changed too…

While I don’t recall every saying it; Mary swears I promised that we wouldn’t co-sleep or bedshare.  Whelp…then that 4 month sleep regression happened; and EJ sleeps with us 90% of the time.

I swore my baby wouldn’t ever watch TV….til I needed just 20 minutes to tidy up the house.

I swore I wouldn’t buy girly cloths.  Yeah…about that.  I just bought lady bug shoes tonight and planned out her outfit for our breastfeeding photo shoot (it involves a tutu and flower headband.)

And yes, we met our first breastfeeding goal of 6 months.  And its all going well- so we hope to meet our next goal, 12 months 🙂

I’ll try to do better about updating…thought at least if I wrote a blurb it would get me back in the habit.
