6 months

This is 2 weeks late but I wanted to make sure I got it posted! :) 



Things to remember about Preslee's sixth month:
  • You weigh 15.12 pounds.
  • At your 6 month appointment, which was a little early on May 16th , you weighed 14.12 (40%) and 24 inches (10%). 
  • You are wearing size 2 Luvs brand diapers and 3-6 & 6 month clothes.
  • You are still breastfeeding exclusively! You take 6-7 ounces in a bottle when you take one. 
  • You have started to eat solids. We started with dinner and you normally eat a fruit and vegetable. You have pretty much liked everything we've given you. 
  • You LOVE a water bottle! We have let you drink out of it a couple of times so you tip it up every time you get to hold one! 
  • You are sleeping 10-12 hours at night. You don't go to bed until 8:30 or 9 but I like it because you sleep until around 8! This week you started sleeping on your side at night. You look so comfy and I just want to get in your bed and snuggle with you! 
  • Naps are much better! No more swing naps and no more nap nanny! Morning nap is the best and its 1.5-2.5 hr and then an afternoon nap normally is an 1.5! 
  • You're still taking Prevacid twice a day for reflux. 
  • You are getting more mobile everyday! You roll, scoot and are almost crawling! In fact, daddy has gotten you to stand up by yourself while you lean up against the couch!
  • You are constantly moving so when you're finally on the go, we are in trouble! 
  • You are always looking around and trying to figure out what things are! We say you are nosy but I really think you are just very smart! :) 
  • You are doing so much better in your carseat and car rides are much more pleasant!  
  • You started taking a bath in the big tub and really love to play with your bath toys. You even get mad when we have to stop and wash you! 
  • You talk constantly and Matt and I find ourselves imitating the funny sounds you make!
  • You love playing on the floor with toys. You have a lot of favorites and most of them end up in your mouth! 
  • Your personality has really shown lately. You let us know what you like and don't by laughing out loud and showing us many smiles but your mood can change in a moments notice! We call you mean girl when you're mad because you can really throw a fit!
  • The newness of having a baby in our family still hasn't worn off and I am not sure it ever will! Your grandparents and great grandfathers absolutely adore you. Every time we go home, family & friends make sure they get a chance to see you! 
  • You have become a momma's girl and will cry for me especially when you are hungry or tired! You love your Daddy so much too. You smile when you see him and he figured out that he can get you out of a bad mood by putting you on his shoulders! 
  • You went to the beach and the swimming pool for the first time this month! You loved swimming and even put your face in the water. 
  • You get so excited to see Romeo every day! You like to watch him to see what he's doing and pet him when he lets you close! He is so sweet with you and we are so glad you seem to already love dogs! 
  • You smile and giggle all the time and have really become such a happy baby! This makes our hearts melt! 


Baby girl- You are growing up too fast! I love watching you learn new things daily! I want to soak up every second I can with you at this age. I love our daily routine and how happy you are throughout the day. I also love that you want me and that I can always calm you down and make you happy. My heart has never felt so much love for anything in my life! I love you more than words can say! -Mommy

I have a baby girl (Harper) who is just a few days younger than Preslee. I love seeing your updates because I'm always curious about other girl babies Harper's age. All of my friends with babies her age have boys! They seem so very similar (they weigh the same, but Harper is 27 in. long), we also say she's 'nosy' too! Your girl is just precious and time does go SO fast!

Random question, I know, but I'm in NWA and looking for a reeeeeeeally good hair gal ... any suggestions? :)

Oh my gosh, she looks so diferent from the last time I saw her. She looks so grown up! Is she sitting on her own? Or just propped up for pictures. My doctor said that babies that are smaller, tend to sit and walk earlier, because there isn't so much chunk to move I guess.
