6 Months

 

Dear Joycelen,

You are 6 months old. Hard as it is to believe half of your first year of life is over.  Here are the important milestones for this month:

6 months 9-4-10 #1

  • You are 15 pound, 15 ounces.
  • You measure 27 inches in length.
  • You are wearing 3-6 months clothing, although a few of the 6-9 month onesies do fit you.
  • Due to your long limbs, you have a tiny waist, so you are still in size 2 diapers.
  • You are still sleeping thru the night. You take a nap around 6:30 or 7:00 that last for about an hour. Then you wake up for an hour of playtime and one last bottle, and then sleep for 10 hours.
  • You have become a pro at eating solid foods. You have 1 jar of baby food along with a 4 ounce bottle for breakfast, a 6 ounce bottle at 11, a jar of baby food at lunch, another 6 ounce bottle at 3, 6, and a 4 ounce bottle before bed.
  • Your verbal skills continue to grow. You are making the “b” and “m” sounds….over and over again. Nana says that she has heard you say Mama and Daddy first, but if that’s true you are not letting us hear them.

6 months 9-4-10 #4

  • You are also becoming quite accomplished at sitting up.
  • Still no crawling, you prefer to scoot on your back or army crawl.
  • Recently, you have become enthralled with remotes, cell phones, and paper.

Your Daddy and I are constantly amazed by you, and you always have us laughing with your smiles, giggles, and big wet kisses.

Love,

Mama & Daddy

That is so hard to believe! (I guess part of it is due to the fact that I was away from blogging for many of those months.) She is such a cutie. I'm so glad that she brings so much happiness to your life.

RE: your comment on my previous blog post, that is such a wonderful idea to use old family photos as artwork. We have some beautiful photos of my grandparents and even great-grandparents that would be great to frame and display. Thank you for the idea!
