Celebrating Six Months

Today, Baby Scout, you are Six months old.

Sleeping Patterns: Baby Scout, you slept in your crib for the first time last night! Mommy slept in your room with you. You woke up seven times. Usually, you go to bed around eight and wake up between six and seven. The time change really messed up your sleeping patterns. You were starting to recover from the time change and then you got sick. So, we are still struggling with sleep at night. Last night was the first night you have not been swaddled at night. As for naps, you have started taking those in your crib as well. Mommy reads you a book, rocks you for a minute, and then puts you in your crib (awake). If you fuss, I pick you up, calm you, and then put you back down. It may take two or three times, but you will go to sleep. Your naps have been around 45 minutes. This is a long time for you.

What You Like To Do: Baby Scout, your favorite thing is when mommy and daddy make a turkey noise at you. You laugh really hard at this. You also like "This Little Piggy" and have a doll that says this rhyme for you. Your new favorite toy is you Jumperoo. You can jump really high in it and will sit in it for a long time. You still like to watch T.V. but not as much as you did. You like Yo Gabba Gabba and The Price is Right. You love all your toys. One of your favorite is a little princess doll that rattles. You also enjoy playing with stacking cups and sucking on your toes. Sometimes, you like your bath and sometimes you do not. It depends on what mood you are in and how tired you are. You love to be rocked and will scratch if you are tired. You have one certain position that you like to cuddle (facing right, right thumb in mouth, left arm tucked). If mommy holds you like that you usually go right to sleep. Sometimes, mommy rocks you eventhough she should lay you down. You like to watch Chipper. You even like it when he licks you, buy mommy doesn't like that too much. You like to visit daddy at school. He takes you around to visit everyone, and you seem to think this is really fun. You seem to like going to Daddy's basketball games; You have not fussed once at any of his games. Swinging is something else you like to do. Our church has playground with a baby swing, and we have been to swing there two times. You love it!

New Things You Have Done this Month: Baby Scout, you have done so many new things this month. You went on your first vacation to Charleston. You were so good the entire time. During that trip, you had your first time in the ocean, first horse and buggy ride, and first college football game. You had your first Halloween this month. You dressed up like a dragon, pumpkin and flower. You didn't go trick or treating but gave out candy with daddy at his baseball team's Trunk or Treat! You attended your first basketball game this month. I think this will be the first of many. You seem to love watching basketball. You rolled over from back to front for the first time. You have only done it once though. You don't show much interest in rolling but really enjoy sitting up and playing with your toys. You also took your first nap in your crib this month and slept all night in your crib. You said "Mama" very clearly for the first time. Stage one foods have all been tried now. You really like squash, bananas, pears and applesauce. Your least favorites are prunes and green beans. You are really pushing up tall and sort of lifting your belly. No luck with all fours yet! You can get where you want to go by scooting backwards. You can go backwards really fast.

Eating Patterns: Baby Scout, you eat 5 times a day ( 6:30ish, 10:00ish, 2ish, 5ish and 8ish). You nurse every three hours (woohoo!) for about fifteen minutes. You usually do not eat during the night. You are doing a great job with your solid food. You eat cereal with fruit at 7:30, some kind of baby food about 1:00, and cereal with fruit at 7:00.

Dislikes: Baby Scout, sometimes you dislike when it is time to sleep. You will fight sleep so bad. You fuss until you find you comfortable spot. You also dislike Wal-Mart. The two times I have taken you, you have fussed the whole time. You also seem to dislike having a poopy diaper now. That never bothered you until we started solid food.

Diaper Size: Scout, you wear a Size 3 diaper.

Clothes Size: Scout, you wear some size 3 - 6 months clothes and some 6 - 9 month clothes, and 6 - 12 month clothes. Your pajamas are size 3 - 6 months with some 6 - 9. I probably will change to all 6 - 9 months and 6 - 12 months clothes sometime in the next week or so.

Eye/Hair Color: Scout, right now, your eyes are a green/brown color (different on different days), but I think they are going to turn brown. Your hair is red.

You are six months old!
We can not believe it!
Your first 1/2 year has gone by so fast!
We love you!
