Kendall: 6 months old


Baby girl you turned 6 months on April 27th, how is it that we are already here?  How is it already been 6 months? A half a year old, I still cant believe it.  These six months have just flown by in the blink of an eye.  You are such a good baby and you really only cry when your hungry.  Your facinated with your sisters and are always watching what they are doing.  Thank you for making the adjustment from 2 to 3 so easy.

I love you to the moon and back sweet girl!

SLEEPING:  we've had a few rough nights, your teething and your not the greatest teether {just like your sister Keira}.  Other than those few rough nights you are a great sleeper.  You wake up on your own around 7-7:30 {sometimes your woken up earlier by your lovely sisters} and you go to bed each night around 8:30.  You are taking 3 naps a nap.  Once in the morning around 9 for about an hour.  You take your long nap at the same time as your olders sisters at 12:30 for 2-3 hours and then one more hour nap around 5.  The only thing I've noticed is that your wanting to be rocked at your 12:30 nap, I'm not sure why, but I usually cave in and rock you cause I don't want your crying keeping your older sisters awake.  It only takes you 10 minutes of being rocked and your out!  You still get swaddled for your naps and bedtime {you still love it and sleep the best that way}

EATING: you are a little piggy and love your milk that's for sure.  In the morning when you wake up you get a 6oz bottle and then every 3 hours after that you'll eat 5oz bottles and then at bed time you'll drink another 6oz bottle.  When you turned 4 months were tried baby food and you weren't really ready, so I waited till a little after you turned 5 months and we tried again and you are doing much better.  You actually open your mouth each time and more of the food stays in your mouth than not.  You absolutely HATE sweet peas {both your sisters favorites} the 2 times I've tried giving it to you, you've cried.  You do LOVE sweet potatoes, peaches and pears.  At 6 months we will be doing jar food for breakfast, lunch and dinner and maybe even letting you try some puffs {not sure if mommy is ready yet!}

* Your most recent obsession is spitting {blowing raspberries}!  Yes spitting, somtimes even at 3am.  I dont ever remember your sisters doing it but you do it all the time.  I think it's funny but you do make a huge slobbery mess when you do it!
* When your sisters come over and talk or sing to you, you usually start cooing back at them and then they get a kick out of it!
* Sitting in your bumpo and being able to check everything out
* You like playing in your exersaucer, you like it even more now cause you can spin the chair around and reach all the toys.

* Being in your car seat.  You are ok with sitting in it as long as were in the car and the car is moving or if your sleeping in it!
* Loud yelling or screaming from your sisters
* Sleeping on your tummy.  When I put you in your bed to nap unswaddled you always roll on your belly and then end up crying cause you don't like it but you wont roll back over. {silly girl}

* You got your ears pierced! {4.2.13} while mimi was visiting. {it's kinda of a tradition that my mom goes with me to get the girls ears pierced.  She takes pictures and then videos the process.  I love that I have them to look back on}

* When you lay on your tummy your trying to scoot around!  I can see your little feet trying to push you along, STOP IT!  In the 1st week daddy was gone you started doing so many new tricks!

* You love to lay on your belly and play with toys, you've even started reaching for your toys.  You like it best when your in your bumpo, you can play with your toys easier!

* You love when we play peek a boo

* I've noticed your showing a little seperation anxiety when I leave the room.  You'll cry if you cant see me anymore and as soon as you can see me you stop!

* I've started to introduce sign language to you.  I know you cant do them yet, but I feel like you can never start to early.  I am only teaching you 2 signs {night night & milk}

* This month you got to meet Mimi, Papa, Uncle Jake & Uncle Justin for the first time.  Yes you've seen them when we skype but its not the same.  Mimi just loved all over you {and your sisters too}

* At 5 months still no teeth, but you have been a drooling machine and I'm just hoping they are coming soon {you've been cranky}

* You sat up unassisted for the first time the other night! {4.11.13} and you sat there for about a minute before falling to the side.  When I sit you up I usually will put your boppy behind you so if you do fall to the side or back is doesn't hurt

* You can take your binki out of your mouth and your trying your hardest to put in back in your mouth.  Sometimes you get lucky and actually make it in your mouth.

* You love playing with your feet.
