Emily Ann, you bring us so much joy. You are such a precious asset to our family- your sweet smile and great personality continually thrills me and makes us both so many new friends! I can't remember life without you, nor do I want to. I can not believe it has been 6 months since you made your debut into our lives. We adore you sweet girl!
Firsts: Eating fruits and veggies, sitting up for extended amounts of time
Milestones: Eating fruits and veggies, rolling continually (though still very rare).
Measurements: 16 lbs. 13 oz (66th percentile), 27.75 inches long (over 97th percentile), size 3 diapers, 6-9 month clothes
Like Mommy: You love attention and tend to put on a show when people are watching you.
Like Daddy: You have very similar expressions when you are "concentrating."
Food: You are eating 8 oz. of formula every 4+ hours. You eat about 4 oz. of veggies or fruits during your "dinner" meal, then finish the meal with about 4 oz. of formula. So far you have tried green beans (still need to work on these!), green peas, sweet potatoes, carrots with and without cinnamon, zucchini, squash, and pears. Mommy has started making your baby food and can't wait for you to try peaches!
Sleep: You sleep from 8:30PM to 7:30 or 8:00 AM every night. You take a short nap in the morning as we run errands and a 2.5 to 3 hour nap in the afternoon.
Challenges: You officially have your 3rd cold in a month. It does not change your disposition, but you HATE the nose bulb!
Our Days: You wake up at 8:00 each morning and have breakfast. After you eat, we usually run errands or cuddle on the couch. You eat again at 12:00 then we play from the end of that feeding until 1:30 when you usually get sleepy. You sleep from 1:30 to 4:15. At 4:15 you eat baby food, then spend some time with Daddy. You play with your toys after "dinner" and usually take a short nap before your last meal.You take a bath with Mommy every other evening right before your 8:00 meal. We feed you at 8:00 and you go to bed at 8:30.
Mommy's Favorite: Watching you giggle! You crack yourself up all the time!
Daddy's Favorite: When you can pick him out of a crowd- love that smile!
