6 Months

My sweet little Natalee is 6 months old today. Halfway to one year old! I can't believe how big she is getting.

Weighs 18 lbs. 6 oz. 90%
Height 27 inches 90%

Things to remember-

*Wearing size 3 diapers.

*Wearing mostly 6 month clothes.

*She's rollin', rollin' rollin'. Front to back, back to front, all over the place!

*I no longer swaddle her at night. When she started rolling over I'd swaddle her with her arms out but now I just put her in sleepers. She looks so cute and cozy and I just wanna snuggle her. She'll usually sleep 11-12 hours at night, sometimes on her back, sometimes on her belly.

*Her naps vary each day. Most days she'll take 3 naps. 1- 1 1/2 and then maybe a couple 40-60 minute ones. Other days she'll take 2 long ones anywhere from 1 1/2 hours to 3 hours. She is my good little sleeper.

*Her eyes are still blue but now have almost a brownish tint around the middle. So maybe she'll have hazel eyes?

*She is still nursing. I met my goal of breastfeeding till she was 6 months old! Although she is not exclusively breastfed, it's better than nothing. I will continue on till I have nothing left.

*She loves food...bet you couldn't tell. She has had rice cereal, oatmeal, sweet potatoes and pears. She's also tried little bites of other food here and there.

*She is starting to get the hang of her sippy cup. At first she'd just chew on it, but now she realizes if she sucks, she'll get water and she thinks that is awesome!

*She has almost outgrown her bouncer and swing.

*I introduced her to her jumperoo. She doesn't jump in it but she likes to play with the toys and little gadgets it has.

*She has this big time cowlick right in the front of her head. I've tried to comb it the other way and "correct" it, but no such luck.

*Still our happy baby. Once in awhile her mouth with hurt and she's not so happy, but for the most part she is chill and laid back.

*No teeth yet, but I'm thinking soon.

*Loves to laugh and scream. Always talking and making noises.

*When you tickle her belly she sceams and belly laughs. I love it.

*Loves her big sister. Haylee always makes her laugh. Haylee will lean against her and Natalee will scream "ahhh" then laugh. It cracks me up. I love when they play nice together. Well Haylee anyway. Natalee is always nice except when she is pulling hair but that is paybacks.

*Went to the zoo for the 1st time. Saw koalas, deer and other animals. Enjoyed the fresh air but a tad too warm still. We will be regulars at the zoo soon.

*Also went to her first Suns game. Got her picture with the Suns Dancers and even the Gorilla patted her on the back. After a short nap she was content to sit on my lap the rest of the time.

*Got to see her Papa & Grandma Nemo who came down from Vegas.

*Went to her 1st pumpkin patch. She liked the hayride and laughed and smiled the whole time. I showed her the animals and she watched sister decorate a pumpkin. She got a baby pumpkin too. She was very good the entire time, like always :)

Everyone continues to say they have the same "sweet little face" yet I guess I can't see past the hair.

Natalee & Haylee 6 months.
