Six Months

Half a year has already passed with this little bean?  It's been a wonderful six months and she just keeps getting cuter and cuter.  So what's new?  The biggest thing would be that she's now a crawler!  Well, she's done it a few times, and by that I mean she's gone far enough to play with the fireplace poker (I almost died).  Baby proofing is something we now have to consider.  I feel like everything is a potential hazard but I'm focusing mostly on the lower cabinets and the brick fireplace aka the skull cracker.

She's been on solid foods since the fourth month but she doesn't really react well to it yet.  Mostly because she really loves breastfeeding but also because everything but cereal backs her up.  Sweet potato is her sworn enemy and avocado has now made its way on that list.  She has a doctor's appointment tomorrow so once we talk to him we will have a more clear idea on how to happily introduce more food.  I'm not that concerned because she really has been fattening up without a bunch of solids.  I also plan to breastfeed as long as I'm still producing and at this age most of her nutrients come from me anyway.  We will see what the future plan is though!

Bianca is definitely more vocal these days.  She loves to "sing".  I call it singing but I think she just loves the sounds that come out of her mouth.  It's almost always high pitched and she does it pretty much all day.  I can't even say I'm annoyed, I love her cute little voice!

Tooth number five and six are currently coming in.  This girl never stops teething.  I guess it's a blessing that they're all coming in at once, but until they stop I'll be dealing with a cranky little girl.  She's a drooling machine and wants to bite down on everything, including me!  Our nights are still a little rough because of it, but she actually sleeps for longer intervals when she sleeps with my husband.  While we always go to sleep in the same room, I end up in one room while Kevin and Bianca are in another.  I look forward to the day when she sleeps soundly in her own crib...

I really enjoy writing these updates every month and taking these pictures because she grows so fast before my eyes.  Pretty soon she'll be walking and talking (although I don't want to think about it) and I won't even remember what it was like to have such a small and cuddly little girl.

I just want to mention that she was not happy about taking her pictures this month so I didn't have many to choose from.  The proof is right here:

  1. So adorable! The last photo made me chuckle. I can't hugely relate as I don't have children yet - but I definitely hope to one day in the not so distant (terrifying) future. For now, I shall content myself with enjoying your updates!

  3. What a cutie! These updates will serve as such a nice collection of memories for you and Bianca when she's older :) It's also really helpful as a hopeful future parent to read about the joys and challenges you experience.

  5. She is so cute! That tongue in the first picture is killing me (:
    P.S. I'm sure I don't have to telly you this, but definitely take care of that fireplace. When my brother was around one years old (so, when he started walking) he started getting a lot of interest in the fireplace, and this resulted in him hitting his head/face on it a lot. And the bruises were gnarly!

  8. So cute! Her hair is getting longer! And you're right, once they start crawling, it's scary how fast they can move!

  12. She is seriously just the cutest and I don't even really like babies. But really, she seems so sweet and squishy. These are weird comments, I know. I'm glad you do posts like these (for yourself/Bianca), but also so we can all feel like we know a little piece of her life.

  13. hahah i can only imagine your face when you noticed her with the poker- curious little thing! my middle brother, simon, was INSANELY curious. like he'd eat dirt from the flower pots around the house and stick his tongue into the VCR player...so hope that Bianca isn't *too* fascinated with her surroundings. He drove my mom crazy haha. And I can't get over how cute she is. That singing must be so adorable :D

  14. Congratulations on six months of breastfeeding! Even though Levi is only two months (today!), my motto is "food before one, just for fun" The first two foods I plan to introduce at six months is sweet potato and avocado, so we will see how that pans out haha. Levi sleeps with us every night, it's just so easy when he wakes up multiple times, but my husband and I are both dreaming of the day that he sleeps in his own crib :) You'll get there! She's adorable.

  16. What an adorable cutie she is! I've been an aunt for pretty much my whole life and I've had my sisters explain that scary feeling about how quick they grow up and change. I think its great that you'll be able to have posts like these to look back on and remember even the earliest stages of her life <3
