Six Months

A half of a year. I wish you could see my face right now. *sigh*

I love this child. More so than I EVER thought was possible. She is an amazingly happy baby. My one wish for her is for her to always be this happy. And I know that really is not possible and that breaks me.

She had her 6 month well baby check-up the other day. She weighed in at 16 pounds 6.5 ounces and she is 26.5 inches long. She got her shots, and I opted to get her ears pierced. I am STILL reeling from the guilt of willingly bringing pain unto my child.
She only cried briefly. But still. Ugh.

I didn't get my ears done til I was 11. And it bloody well hurt. My thought process here was that she won't remember the pain, you know?

We are having issues with her spitting up, excessively. I discussed it with her Pediatrician who said that it is more of a laundry problem than a medical problem.
This kind of irritated me a bit. It does not seem to bother her in the least. But for two days now I have fed her babyfood with some water. No spit up. About 30 minutes later I give her a bottle and she becomes a damned fountain.

She is gaining weight accordingly, so I guess I should give it a bit more time. I dunno. It has gotten to the point though that bibs and spit-up cloths aren't adequate. I have to have a freaking receiving blanket on hand at all times. And wipes. Lots and lots of wipes.

Yeah. Gross.

But I love her anyway. :O)

She sat up all by herself today. She loves to stand and will stand at the coffee table for small bits of time. She looks like a little drunk after a few minutes, when she goes all wobbly. She gives kisses, tries to feed herself, is sort of drinking from a cup, still sleeping through the night, blows raspberries ALL THE DAMNED TIME!, naps like a champ, loves to play with her toys, and leans for me when Daddy holds her. Today, as I was holding her, she leaned over and reached for her Daddy. He had a bad day, so his face just lit up and I swear I heard his heart burst. It really made his day! We take her for hour long walks, and she does not make a peep. She just looks around at everything whilst blowing raspberries. Then we come home, she eats, gets a bath and zonkers out!!

I really need to start baby proofing this place, because it will be no time at all until this becomes her domain!

Labels: , ,

Aaaaack - six months and time to baby proof?? Where has the time gone?? T spit-up like that 'til after 6 months when we finally made the choice to Lacto-free. If he has a lot of milk or yogurt to this day, he'll still have a little problem with it (although it's got muuuuch better with time). Cannot believe she's sitting up!
I remember those days. I am so glad you had her, Jen. I'm so glad to hear how you and T are enjoying her. that's going to be such a difference in her life. Wonder what you did without her. Thought your life was full, but looking back, does it seem empty now?
Going back and forth to Bossman's place... ha.
Maya is much much better...
I can bring the boys over to help proof the house... but i cant believe that she is sitting up either.

I stopped by and say Tas.. and she said that nick weighs in at 20lbs and he is a big boy wearing 18 month clothes at 6 months. they are both growing up too darn fast..
I cant wait to see you both again... many hugs!!!
I am loving Sophie at 6 months. Suddenly she is a pleasant child. Glad to hear all is going well with Maya.
This is one of the sweetest things I've ever read.
oh, and wait till you blink and she's turning 13.
Don't blink, dude.
