Six Months.

It has been half a year since I gave birth to you my sweet girl.  Half a year has never flown by so quickly.  It still feels like I've been a mama forever.. and each day is an adventure that I wouldn't trade for the world.

Your quirks this month...

.You graduated to size 3 diapers.

.You wear mainly size 6 month in clothing, some 3 to 6 month.  Still 6 to 9 month sleepers.

.You are 27.5 inches tall.. in the 96th percentile.

.You are 16 pounds, 8 ounces.. in the 62nd percentile.

.You started eating baby food.

.You dislike veggies.

.You slept from 11:30 to 7:30 a few nights in a row.

.You still fall asleep around 8.  Sleep until 9:30 or 10.  Go back to sleep between 11 and 12.  Sleep until 6 (sometimes getting up around 2 to nurse).  Nurse.. then go back to sleep until anywhere between 9 and 11.

.You have started reaching out for mom and dad.

.You are extremely bossy when it comes to food.  You want it shoveled quickly into your mouth.

.You broke your two bottom front teeth on mom's graduation day.  Overall resulting in one rough initial day, but no real noticeable issues after.

.You still only take 45 minute naps.  An hour one is a GREAT one.

.You LOVE Piston.  Your face literally lights up when he enters the room and you laugh and laugh when he gives you attention.

.You are almost always a good baby at the meetings you still accompany mom to.  She gets told frequently that you are a great baby.  To which she agrees.

.You still breastfeed often.  But still get distracted easily..

.You learned to click your tongue.

.You are definitely an assisted sitter.  You do well if a pillow is right behind your butt... but you love to sit up and want so badly to be able to do it yourself.

.You mastered your bouncer this month.  While you don't really bounce... you enjoy being in it with everything just an arms reach away.

.You are still the biggest ham I know.  You smile at strangers.. and love to laugh and have a good time.

I never knew my exact purpose until six months ago.  I've never before felt so confident in my roll as I do when it comes to being your mother.  It's just right.  I am just lucky... so lucky.  Lucky to mother this child!
