You are 6 months old today baby girl! The past few months have literally flown by! You are half a year old! You have grown so much again this month it's unreal. You do something new everyday! I miss you being a newborn and a teeny weeny baby but your're still my baby of course. You haven't been weighed properly since you were 20 weeks and you were 16lbs 4oz, I don't get you weighted until Wednesday but I checked myself this morning and you were 17lb 8oz so I'm sure you'll be near abouts that. You are now 72cm long! You have such long legs and big feet like your daddy. I'm sure you're going to be an athlete when your older or a model. I am still nursing you. I honestly can't believe I've managed it till now! Such an achievement, especially seeing as I had no idea what I was going to do before you were born. I am so pleased I have done as you have built up a great immune system and you haven't been ill once.
I Love watching you grow day by day and seeing you grow into a little lady. You already have the temper of a toddler! I love your laugh, your smile, and that cute little thing you do when you get excited! You raise your eyebrows a lot, you smile at Mummy and Daddy all the time, I love watching you sleep. There are so many things you are doing now. You started talking the other night. You said 'ba ba' which I'm sure you were trying to say 'da da' as I say it to you all the time. You are so close to saying it. Of course I'm secretly hoping you'll say 'Mum' first haha but I know it won't happen.
You are now crawling, you get up on all fours and rock back and fourth and move forward. You also love going backwards too. You are obsessed with remotes, especially the Sky one and my iPhone! I'm tempted to buy your own. You love chewing on cables and pulling them out from my laptop, you recognize your name when we call it. You smile all the time, I love the big smile you give as soon as you wake up, Daddy also loves the smile you give him when he get's in from work. You know what 'clap hands' is and can do it occasionally. You can stand up against the sofa and walk a few steps being held. You are finally sleeping better at night however it's still a nightmare to get you to sleep earlier! But when you do you sleep from 11/12 until 5am then feed and sleep again until 9/10am. You are still in size 3-6 clothes and they are starting to fit you nicely. I don't think you'll be in 6-9 months for another month or so. Teething wise that one tooth is still coming through! I think you'll get them all through at once. According to the health visitors you are very well developed for you age and are ahead on the chart.
This past week you have started randomly falling asleep instead of being nursed to sleep. Which I am so grateful for! You use to be a nightmare to get to nap in the day and would get over tired. You are now falling asleep in the pram, in the rocker and even the Jumperoo!! You do this cute duck thing with your bottom lip when you suck it in. It's so adorable!!
Your hair is growing much more now, and I can't wait until it's longer to play with it and brush it for you. You still HATE being placed down on your back you will scream bloody murder. But if i'm changing you you're fine. You love your jumperoo. I'm so glad we bought it for you! Your face lights up when you're in it and you jump for joy! Your favourite food seems to be carrots and sweet potatoes, you love them. You are still being nursed on demand, but eat two meals a day, which I will be increasing to three shortly. I am looking forward to introducing you to finger foods this month. Can't wait! Looks like so much fun.
So that's all for your 6 month update. I just can't believe it's been 6 months already.
Your Daddy and I love you more than you could imagine and love watching you grow.
Lots of Love Mum x
