Month Six With Little m

Considering Little m is turning double digits months old this week, I'd say I'm a bit behind on her monthly updates. It's a good thing I took notes! Here's what she was up to:
Little m, you spent the first week of your sixth month in Florida. You had such a fun time and it was great to get away from the wintry weather in Chicago.

You officially doubled your birth weight this month and are now close to 12 pounds. You had fallen off of the percentile charts last month but are now back on! Your favourite meal is bananas mixed with oatmeal cereal, with a sprinkle of cinnamon on top. You would enjoy that for both breakfast and dinner every singe day if I let you. I made apples for you one day but you thought they were way too sour. The video I took of you trying them is priceless.

You're the happiest during naked bum time. You love to kick, kick, kick your legs and move both of your arms up and down at the same time. You try to sit up but are still unsteady and will fall over if we let go. You love snuggling with mom and dad every morning in bed. You absolutely love taking baths and this month was your first swimming lesson too! You hated it. You are a very cultured girl and took your first trip to a museum, the Chicago Art Institute, with you friend Juniper. This month you started to giggle a lot more and we try to make you laugh by kissing your stomach and toes and by making weird noises. Grandma likes to bark at you like a dog to get you to giggle. She is funny, just like you. Bama also makes you laugh when he yawns loudly or wags his tail and creates wind in your face.

Slowly but surely, you are behaving better in the car seat and stroller. What I mean by this is that you don't start screaming right away when we put you down into one of them. You last a good ten minutes before that happens now :)  Actually, for the first time ever, we were able to go out for a family dinner and you stayed content in your stroller the entire time! 
Sleep training is really paying off and you slept an eight hour stretch. That only happened once, but it still made mama very happy. Mostly you sleep in 4-6 hour chunks during the night.

We cannot believe that you are a half of a year old! Time flies when you're having fun! 


  1. And remembering what life was like before her is becoming increasingly more difficult to do, isnt it.

  2. I agree with Marina, it is hard to remember life before M! She is such a cute, little peanut..... we just love her so much!!

  3. Cutie patootie! Can't wait to catch up with you guys!
