I know that everyone always wonders where the time goes when you have a baby, but seriously…WHERE DOES THE TIME GO?? My once itty bitty baby is not a baby anymore! I find myself feeling so sad and joyful at the same time. It is unreal to think about how big and grown up she has become, but it is so much fun to watch her learn and discover new things every single day! This girl is seriously the happiest baby I have ever met in my life. She is absolutely FULL of personality and never meets a stranger. She is constantly smiling, talking, laughing, and on the move somewhere. She has been crawling for over three months now, and for a couple of moths has been able to pull herself up onto everything and walk along the edges of it. She stands on her own for so long and I really feel like she is going to take off walking any second now. She says mama and dada and bye bye, and Coley and I swear that she said ba-ba the other day when I was making her bottle. Waving and giving kisses is her new favorite thing. And when I tell you that this kid is on the go ALL of the time, I’m not kidding. She has pretty much slept in bed with us from day 1, but when she became more mobile she became a terrible sleeper. She was rolling around and kicking and flailing her arms around all night that she would wake up timeless amounts in the middle of the night. So I made the executive decision one night after I rocked her to sleep that I would put her in her crib. (For the first time ever in her 6 months of life!) And OMG, the child slept through the night, all by herself! I feel like she was moving around so much and bumping into one of us that it would wake her up! So now that she has all of her space to herself, she sleeps so good. Oh how I miss those cuddles with her in bed with me, but a good nights rest is a good nights rest, am I right or am I right?? (Don’t get me wrong, she wakes up occasionally and one of us will go snatch her up and snuggle her the rest of the night!) As far as schedule goes, haha, we don’t even know what that word is! We are seriously going somewhere or doing something every day so it’s literally impossible to have a schedule. You mamas that do, more power to you! I feel like we do fall into the same sort of routine from day to day, but if we ever go somewhere on a whim, Scar baby just goes right along with it and it doesn’t affect her one bit!
She officially has seven teeth now, three bottom and four top, and that little grin with those teeth is so stinking cute I can barely stand it. She knows it too, little stinker. She is such a tall and healthy girl. Believe it or not, she wears 18-24 and some 2T clothing. What in the world?? However, the bigger girl clothes are so much cuter!!! Score! Oh, and Coley just had to take her to the doctor yesterday and she was 29 inches!!!
Though I long for the days back when she was such a tiny little thing, these days are flying by so fast and I soak up everything so that I can remember her in this moment. I am so grateful and blessed for this life that we live and that I can document everything here to have it to look back at the rest of my life! <3
- Her Sippy Cup – I recently bought these and they are what’s up! They are so easy for her to use, and she is drinking an insane amount of water in them. They have so many different options between colors and character prints. There are also the aluminum ones which I plan on getting soon.
- This Booster – Although we still use her high chair on the daily, this booster that snaps right onto the chairs makes her feel like such a big girl. I think it is so important for her to sit down and eat with us while we are eating so that it will just become natural to her, and when she becomes a toddler she isn’t running around like a maniac while the adults eat!
- Big Girl Carseat – She was a little over 6 months when we transitioned her to this car seat, and it was literally a life saver! She is able to sit up and see everything around her, and travels so much better now. This car seat has been a dream and I highly recommend it! It is chic, comfy, easy to wash, and not as wide and bulky as some are.
- These pacifiers – We love these because they are much cuter than the round soothies that you get at the hospital.
