Brooklyn {Six Months}

Six Months is a huge milestone, in my opinion. Six months is when life starts to get easier, especially now with two kids. How can it be that she is already 6 months? I honestly feel like I was just pregnant.......last week.

Length, Weight, Percentiles:
26.5" tall (76% for height) (was 25.5" at 4 mos)
16lbs 7.5 oz. (58% for weight) (was 14lbs 2.5 oz at 4 mos.)

What a little personality this one has

Brooklyn as two little teeth popping through on the bottom, and perhaps a third, but it hasn't made an appearance yet. She has been really good with teething so far, I don't notice any crankiness or pain.

This little one is sleeping through the night, not every night, but more consistently. She sleeps from 7:30 or 8 PM until 7 AM most nights. Once, maybe twice a week, she wakes up to eat but falls right back asleep.

She naps 2-3 times a day, one morning nap, one afternoon nap, and sometimes a mid-evening nap. Naps range in length from 30 minutes to 2 hours. 

She is still a super baby and can easily put herself to sleep. Little miss has become quite the little thumb sucker, which is seriously so adorable!

She will self-entertain herself in the morning and we usually never have to wake her up. When we walk into her room, she always lights up like she has been awake and just hanging out.


Officially 100% Formula as of last week. She eats 5-7 oz. every 3 hours. She also eats baby food once a day (if we remember and/or have the energy or time for it). She loves peas, carrots, and pears. She is not as big of fan of bananas.

Clothes and Diapering:
Wearing 6 month clothes, but could easily start wearing 9 month clothes. She is also wearing size 3 diapers.

Momma never gets any pictures with the kiddos, so this was a treat!

Still little miss chatty. She loves to babble and have conversations with herself or anyone who will talk to her. She can be somewhat loud, especially in quiet places, hmmm wonder where she gets that from?

She has become so enthralled with Bennett. She watches his every move and thinks he is just hilarious. Bennett also loves the attention and will easily continue what he is doing over and over and over if it gets a laugh out of her. She loves watching all kids in general though too. She still loves songs and it is her favorite activity.

Some of the things Brooklyn is doing: Rolling from back to belly, and belly to back. She will rotate herself in clockwise or counter-clockwise fashion. She is also starting to sit up. We typically need a boppy behind her, or have to sit next to her to just barely hold her back if she starts to fall forward or back.

Likes: Songs, Airplane, Peek-a-boo, Toys that sing or light up, playing with her feet, sucking her thumb

Dislikes: I am hard pressed to find something here. She pretty much loves life. I cannot think of one thing she dislikes......being hungry? that's typical and an easy fix. She rarely gets overtired because she will just fall asleep anywhere. She tends to get cranky after 7 PM, but we make it a point to try to be home with her. No one wants to be out with a cranky babe. She hates her shots.....but who doesn't? If I was guaranteed all my babies would be this happy and easy, I would have a million of them......
