HAPPY HALF-BIRTHDAY SWEET GIRL!
I love to look back and compare how much Alli has grown in the past six months:
tubby time (3 days old and 6 months old)
Mommy and Alli (5 days and 5.5 months old)
doctor's office visits (5 days old and 6 months old)
Daddy and Alli (4 days old and 5.5 months old)
hanging out in her bouncer (3 days old and 6 months old)
falling asleep in her bouncer
sitting in her glider (2 weeks old and 6 months old)
family pictures (8 days old and 4.5 months old)
Here's what you're up to these days:
*you weigh 14 pounds and 2 ounces and are 24.25 inches tall. (these are accurate because we had your doctor's appointment today).
*you cried so hard after your shots that it took your breath away. It also wore you out and you slept the whole way to school after your appointment.
*normally, you go to bed at 8pm and wake up to eat around 4:30-5:30 (sometimes you even go as late as 7:30). Once you eat, you will go back to sleep until around 7:30am (I will then put you in your swing until around 8:30/9am).
*we only swaddle you from the waist down now because you roll over to sleep on your belly. Your belly is your favorite place to sleep, and the second that we lay you down, you roll right over.
*wearing size 2 diapers, mainly 6 month clothes, but you can still fit into 3-6 and some 3 month sleepers.
*you are getting really good about sitting up by yourself for longer periods of time.
*you love to chew on everything and pass objects between your hands over and over.
*you started Mother's Day Out this past month and are doing great! Your teachers love having you in their class.
*you celebrated your very first Christmas this past month. We stayed at our house in Texas and had such a great time playing with all of the toys that Santa brought.
