Baby Patsy: 6 Month Update

Patsy is currently: 6 months old. Halfway to her 1st birthday! CRAZY!!!

Weight: the last time we went to the doctor in late February, she was a wopping 14lb, 3oz... Officially jumping from about the 10th percentile to the 30th! She gained 2 pounds in 1 month! (For those of you that don't know, that is a pretty big gain!) After all our struggles in the beginning, I am beyond overjoyed at how my little girl has grown.

Height: 26 inches, also the 30th percentile for height.

Clothing: She is now out of her 3-6 month clothes and fitting into her 6-9 and 6-12 month outfits. I still want to try and get a few more wears out of some of her 3-6 month outfits but I'm excited for all the new ones too!

Nicknames: Patsy Girl, nugget, Patsy Watsy

Health/Diet: Still on mommy's milk (no formula) and we are starting to introduce foods. So far she's had avocado, butternut squash and carrots. She hasn't really liked much of it yet, but I know it will take some time. We have taken videos of all this food tasting and it is PRICELESS. I bet our parents were cracking up just as hard at the faces we were making when we first tried foods.

Sleep: She is starting to sleep for longer stretches at night so that is great... Now if only she would go to sleep for the night outside of our bed... We are going to start working on that soon. Should be fun!!!!

Milestones: She now sits up by herself for long stretches of time. She still hasn't mastered it and frequently falls over so it is important that she is observed or seated on a soft surface. (I may or may not be speaking from experience...)

Likes: a fresh diaper, kisses from Pepper (her best friend), Sophie, her exersaucer

Dislikes: food other than mom's milk, sleeping in her pack n play

    Wow! I know you told me about the avocado but I still can't believe she is old enough to be trying foods. That is so fun! We must see the highlights of trying all the foods :)

  7. I know, right? Time is going by so fast! Thanks :)

  8. Thanks! And Yayyyy to warmer temps and more stroller runzzzz

  9. Yeah, I know! Some babies try foods at 4 months but we waited until 6 months. We have to try a little bit each day until she gets the hang of it. :)
