Anna Claire l 6 months

I think I am in complete shock that my baby girl is halfway to one! 6 months seems like a milestone. This has easily been the best 6 months of my life. Life with you, Anna Claire, is so much fun! 

Anna Claire is 15 pounds and 28 inches! She's filling out her 6 month clothes and in size 2 diapers. 

Anna Claire is napping about 3 times a day around 9am, 12:30, and 5:00 sometimes squeezing in an extra cat nap in the afternoon. She sleeps 7:30 pm- 7 am but has gone through a little regression this month. She was only waking up once in the middle of the night to eat but that has increased to 2-3 times some nights. I'm just riding it out and not too worried about it right now because I feel rested and you are happy. She has always fallen asleep super easy once you get her in her Merlin and turn the white noise on. Usually just a few minutes of rocking and she's out! She's still in the pack and play beside our bed just because it makes the middle of the night feedings so much easier on me. Once she starts sleeping through the night better we will transition to the crib! 

We are still breastfeeding with her taking a bottle while I'm at work. She nurses every three hours still with a longer stretch at night. This has been an exciting month because we introduced solids! We tried rice cereal once a day when she was about 5 and a half months and this week she has tried banana and pears. I'm making all of her food right now and it it bringing so much joy! So far she has liked everything she's tried. Next up on the list is squash. 

Six month clothes are fitting perfect with most nine month items still being a tad big. I've already started shopping for Christmas pajamas. I don't think I'll be able to wait until December to start using them! She was set 0-6 months with summer attire but didn't have much Fall/Winter gear so this has been the month we've had to do the most shopping to get ready for the cooler temps. It's expensive to build a whole new wardrobe for the season but it's so much fun! 

Anna Claire loves trying foods, smiling at people who talk to her, bath time, blowing bubbles and being held. 

She does not like long car rides, getting dressed, when you take the wet wash cloth away after bath time and definitely does not like the nasal saline drops.

This month she rolled from back to tummy for the first time! She's only done it twice but I know she can do it. She can sit up on her on for a few seconds. We visited the pumpkin patch this month, attended a best friends rehearsal dinner although she sat the wedding out and traveled to meet another friends baby! It's been such a fun month watching Anna Claire grow!
