6 Months

Beatrix is half a year old!

Sleep:  It's getting better-ish?  We've recently started letting her sleep with a mini-muslin blanket and it seemed to help her sleep better.  She usually wakes only 2-3 times a night wanting a pacifier and to be rolled over.  She goes to bed between 7:30 and 8:00pm and wakes up between 7:00 and 7:30am.  She typically takes 2 naps a day.  One is at 9:30 and the other is around 1:30.  Hopefully within a week I'll write a post about our daily schedule, mostly because I find it interesting to look back on.

Food: She's still taking 6oz bottles at 7:30, 11:45, 4:00 and 7:30.  She gets half a jar of baby food(usually a veggie) around 12:30 and a whole jar(usually a fruit) around 5:30pm.  Her favorite at this point is pears with cinnamon and oatmeal.

Play: She likes her jumperoo and exersaucer.  She takes any toy she can and puts it in her mouth.  She's started playing peek-a-boo with her blankets and it's adorable.   Her favorite song is Skinnamarink, but she also likes You Are My Sunshine.  She likes to screech and is getting really good at jumping.  She loves to smile, laughs easily and is a big hamball.

Movement:  Girlfriend starting sitting up on her own two weeks ago.  It's the earliest of all my kids and I'm glad she's doing it early because it makes my life easier.  She can roll both ways, but prefers rolling back to stomach.  If I set her up by the side of the crib she can hold the rail and stand up -- and she thinks she's hot stuff while doing it.  She tries to get herself up on all fours, but she can't manage it yet.

Size: Her doctor's appointment isn't until Monday, but I can tell she's getting taller.  I had to switch out all her footie pajamas last week to 6-12m or 6-9m because she was too tall for 3-6m.  In all other clothes she's wearing 3-6m, except one pair of Gap skinny jeans in 6-12m that seemed to run small.  She's using size 3 diapers.  Still no teeth, but one(or two) bottom one(s) is(are) getting closer.  Her hair is light brown and her eyes are blue.
