Emmie - 6 Months


This post is a little belated, as you are now approaching SEVEN months, but better late than never, right? I can't believe your 6 month birthday has come and gone. You continue to be such a joyful, happy baby and we are so thankful for that! This month has brought a major increase in mobility, as you are trying very, very hard to crawl and a little more independence with that. Here's what's been happening with you:

Loves: The dogs (ANY dogs for that matter), playing peek-a-boo, being sung to, playing with keys or sunglasses, being tickled, taking baths.

Eating: Nursing 5 times per day and eating solids twice per day. You are finicky with your solids, as you lose interest in eating about halfway through each meal, but we keep at it, since your doctor told us we need to up your intake of solids!

Sleeping:  Sleeping great! Bedtime is at 7:30 and you typically wake up at 7 the next morning. At your 6 month mark, you were still taking 3 naps per day (one long one in the morning, usually 9-11, then two afternoon catnaps). 

Clothes: some 3-6/6 month, some 6-9 month/9 month. Size 2 diapers. 

Firsts: First tooth! You handled it like a champ. One morning I was feeling your gums as I thought you might be teething and was shocked to find a tooth that had broken through! First time spending the night away from home (Papa G and Gigi kept you and you did great!). First time drinking water (you love water!). First time sitting up on your own.

Here are some photos of you!  (Yes, that is blue painter's tape on the wall. Still trying to find the time to paint the trim!)

Looking forward to month 7!!


  1. This is such a sweet post. She's absolutely adorable. :)

  2. Look at that big girl! I can't believe she's almost 7 months old -- and too stinking cute! She'll be running around and playing with Hadley while their mommies drink wine before we know it!
