Dear Willow (6 Months)

Dear Willow,

 You turned six months on Saturday! Whyyyy are you growing up so fast? Can you please slow down? I am loving this age so much. You have accomplished so many little milestones that make mama and daddy beam with pride. We went to our first play group in our new town and there was one little friend that was your age. Maybe you and Austin will become great friends one day :). We are taking you on your second plane ride to Mexico next week. We are super excited to dip you in the warm ocean and play around in the pool.

- You weigh 17lbs 3ozs

- You are 27 inches long

- We started you on solids a couple of weeks ago. So far you have had peas, bananas, sweet potato & turkey, avocado, blueberries & rice cereal. Your faves are definitely bananas & peas.

- Your poops are officially stinky :(

- You think Lily & Daddy are hilarious.

- When mama starts laughing you do too. We laugh a lot!!

- You are so smiley. Whenever you give a big grin you stick your tongue at the roof of your mouth.

- You love your exersaucer

- Everything goes into your mouth

- For clothes you are wearing everything from 3-6 month, 6 month, 6-9 month, 6-12 month, and 9 months. It totally depends on the make. We have many options that is for sure. For sleepers you are in 6-9/12 month or 9 month.

- We had a hard time sleeping this past month. You would wake up every couple of hours and want to stay up for an hour at a time. We tried the crying it out method which lasted two nights. I couldn't handle hearing you so sad. The past few nights you have been sleeping SO GOOD. I have came to the conclusion that you need more food before bed.

- You wake up at 7am to nurse and then you go back to bed until 9. You play and then have cereal at 10:00, 10:30 is nap time for 30 min to an hour, and then you play play play. You nurse at 1:00pm and then we give you some solids. We play play play and then you go down for a nap from 3pm-5pm. You eat dinner (breastmilk and solids) at 5:30pm and then play play play. 7:00pm we start getting ready for bed. We cuddle, then you have a bath, you nurse and then we read a story. You are down at 8pm. You wake at 12:00am and then I fill your belly with formula. We have found that fills you for longer. You wake at 5:00 am to nurse. I am liking this schedule we are on :)

- You are a rolling machine

- You can sit up by yourself for short periods of time. A toy in front of you usually helps you to stay up longer

- You are starting to talk more and more

- You definitely know your name

-  You find your hands fascinating

- You grunt when we don't feed you fast enough. It's so cute feeding you with a spoon, you remind me of a little bird

- Bath time is still your fave. We brought you to the pool a couple of weeks ago but the water was too cold for you to enjoy yourself

- Your gums are sooo white. Those teeth are going to be popping through any time!

We love you to the moon and back Willow Rae xoxoxo
