Oh my sweet little Avery bug. How is it you're 6 months old already? Half a year old. I cannot believe just how quickly these six months have gone. The time seems to fly by even faster than when your brother was a baby, and I'm not sure how that is possible.
You are the happiest, sweetest baby. You are just SO happy. All the time. I cannot get enough of your sweetness.
At 6 months old, you weigh 19 pounds 3 ounces, and you're 27 1/2 inches long. You are at the 90th percentile for both your height and your weight.
You are wearing some 9 month clothing, but a lot of one piece outfits are now 12 months. You are finishing your last package of size 3 diapers, and then we're moving you onto size 4's!
You love to chat. You "sing" with your voice, and it's so adorable. You also make lots of sounds, including "mamamama" and just recently we've heard a few "dadadada's."
You are finally standing when we hold you up. It took you awhile. You liked to just scrunch yourself up in a tiny ball whenever we tried! You discovered you can jump in your jumperoo. Although you don't go too crazy in it yet, you were excited to figure that out.
You love when I sing silly songs to you. One of your favorites is, "Bringing home a baby bumble bee."
You absolutely adore your big brother. I love that at just six months old, I can already see the bond forming between the two of you. I think in a couple of months when you're more mobile, you're going to drive him crazy! -- and I cannot wait! Everything he does is funny to you. He doesn't even have to try to be silly, you just think he's the greatest thing ever.
Your sleeping hasn't been as great this month. You go to bed just fine, but then you'll wake up about an hour later, and it takes you awhile to settle down for the night. I'd say I can count on you being asleep for good around 11pm or so. You're still waking for that 4am bottle, but then you're right back to sleep until 6:30am. I'm hoping you'll stretch that time out a little longer, but I still think your sleep habits are pretty good. I still have you in the pack n' play in my room. I don't see that changing any time soon. I love having you close by.
Those baby blues are still there. They just seem to be getting bluer and bluer! They are so gorgeous, and everyone compliments you on them.
We had our 6 month photo shoot (two weeks late), the other day. Here are a few of the shots.
And of course, here are a few of my favorite photos from this past month.
Happy 6 months my sweet Avery. Mommy loves you more than you'll ever know.
