....and Mollie is another month older.
This post is a little late because I had to wait for Mollie's 6 month check up to get her stats. She currently weighs 13.5 lbs and is 26 inches. Her weight is a little concerning, she is in the 5th percentile, so now the Dr wants me to bring her in once a month to monitor her weight. Apparently she is growing up instead of out. Other then that she really is healthy and right where she should be.
This girl....is.a.crack.up!! She has the most amazing personality, I know, I probably say that a lot, but it's true. She still wears 0-3 month clothes but is slowly making the transition into 3-6 month. It's hard to shop because I don't know what size she will be wearing when....so we just wait. I have a ton of 3-6 month clothes I'm dying to put her in. Once she out grows those I get to do some shopping because I only have a few items of clothing that are 6-9 month and no pajamas....shopping here we come.
No teeth yet. She has all the symptoms, has for months now, but still nothing.
She is sleeping all night, in her crib now and is no longer swaddled at night. This whole process was a major stress for us. We used to swaddle her at night, and wedge her on her side in the bassinet. We knew the day would come when she would need to go into her own room and crib to sleep, we were just worried that she would stop sleeping at night (yes we are selfish and like our sleep). So we just took it one step at a time, first we moved her into the crib waited a couple of weeks, then stopped swaddling her, then stopped wedging her on side and now we put her on her tummy. So far so good. An awesome product to mention is her zipadeezip that she now sleeps in and has helped with the transition of swaddling.
Aside from her weight she is eating solids now, has been for a month, and eats them good. She does really good at breakfast, she loves her rice cereal and fruit. She was doing good at dinner too until she got sick new yrs eve and threw up her carrots, she won't eat carrots anymore. She loves Sweet Potatoes and pretty much just eats them for dinner, with more fruit as her dessert. She actually liked Pea's the first time I gave them to her and didn't even turn her nose up at them. I haven't tried again since she got sick although I will soon.
She is rolling around all over the place and scooting here and there but no crawling yet. She does get up on her hands and knees but doesn't stay there long. She sits on her own but is still a little unstable. It's crazy that she is doing all this stuff, it seems too soon, didn't we just bring her home from the hospital?
Last but not least she LOVES the mirror, and that "baby" in it. She talks to her, spits at her, then leans in and licks her, "her" being her reflection. Its's hilarious....
Seriously, that last picture is to die for. Those eyes are too much.
And so 6 months it is......
