Hadley 6 months old

I know I say this every month, but how is it possible you are already 6 months old! The time is going so fast! You are still the best thing that has ever happened to Mommy and Daddy! We love you with all our hearts, you are so happy, sweet, smiley, cute, very observant and curious! Happy 1/2 birthday baby girl, you are just getting to be so big and getting more mobile and interested in so many things! We have been getting outside and trying new things all the time now that the weather is nice!!

Clothes: You are wearing mostly 6 months clothes.  The 9 month stuff is still too big, but some of it fits your long legs! You do have a couple 3-6 month onesies that still fit you, we will wear them until you can't button them anymore, almost all your pajamas are 6-9 months, but my guess is, you won't want to wear pajamas much this summer haha!

Health: You are a great eater and very healthy, you had a Dr appointment for a possible ear infection and they said you were exactly 16 pounds, so you have doubled your birth weight which is what they want for a 6 month old!

Diet:   You eat around every 4 hours during the day and you have been going around 6-7 hours in the night, you are strictly eating breast milk during the day and then at night you get oatmeal and we are starting to introduce some puree's you have tried peas, which you ate, but you didn't seem to like them very much! You have also tried carrots and seems to like them the most so far, we will be trying squash and sweet potatoes very soon!

Sleep:  You are sleeping mostly through the night, you take a few power naps during the day and then maybe a 2 hour nap late afternoon early evening. It seems you are sleeping every night when I get home from work! But you do love your sleep which is a good thing!

Baby Gear:  You love to be sitting up now and playing with your toys, you still love the rattles, you also love fisher price keys that sing, your new Minnie doll, your v-tech move and crawl, your first dolly, Sophia the giraffe and I say your favorite toy is your paci haha! You also love your bumbo, ergo carrier, soft blocks and anything that plays music!

Likes:  Baths, laying on your back looking in the mirror, tummy time you have really started to love this, now that you know what to do, swinging, sleeping, snuggle time with mommy and daddy, rocking in your rocker, your sister Macy, feeding time, your crib, pacifiers and also car rides, you also started swimming lessons and you LOVE those!

Dislikes:  Diaper changes, being hungry and also cold diaper wipes, you have now started to not like to get burped!
Happy 6 months Hadley Marie! We can't believe we celebrated your 1/2 birthday this month! You seriously bring us more joy then we can ever imagine! We love you to the moon and back! We love watching you become the sweetest little girl, you have had lots of firsts this past month and I am looking forward to spending my first Mother's Day as your mommy this weekend! Love you always and forever!
Mommy and Daddy
