Rilyn Ann: 6 Months

19 Mar

Oh. You noticed I’m posting this an entire month late.

I was hoping you wouldn’t.

Alas, here’s Rilyn’s 6 month post.

Sweet, sweet girl, you are so much fun!

At 6 months you are:
-weighing 16 pounds (50th%) and are 25.9 inches long (50-75th%)
-wearing 6 month and 6-9 month clothing
-in size 3 diapers
-sitting up on your own!
-rolling both directions
-taking two naps a day and sleeping for about 12 hours at night, although you’re still up frequently throughout the night. Usually 2 or 3 times. It’s a big improvement from last month, so I’m happy.
-you think cow noises and pig noises are hilarious
-you adore your sister
-I could stare at your eyes all day.
-still not taking a bottle. You just like to chew on the nipple.
-we started you on green beans but then stopped 3 days later in order to try to figure out what’s going on with the whole diaper situation. You tolerated the green beans at best.
-We still have no idea what’s going on with your diapers, and this month started to see specks of blood in them.
-Nursing is your favorite way to be comforted.
-We love your hair! Some days it resembles a feather duster! :)
-You’re reaching out and grabbing things you want really well.
-anything and everything goes in the mouth. Except for your tongue. It’s always out.
-your favorite toy is the tv remote, although you’d really love to get your hands on mom or dad’s iphone. just once.
-you get so excited when in your jumper.
-You are such a happy baby. I love when people comment about how different you are now. It’s night and day compared to your temperament your first few months of life. You are content and very much a “go with the flow” baby.

Miss Rilyn Ann, we could eat you up, we love you so!

    Wow, Afton, she is gor-geous! I love the pic with her holding the “R.”
    What a little beauty! I think Ty will want her number here in a few years ;)

      Thanks Amy Jo! The “R” picture is one of my favorites, too! And with as cute as your little man is, I’m totally down with some number swapping in the future! :)

      This weather has me so sick of snow that I’m contemplating just packing up what will fit in the car and heading west. We’re supposed to get another snow storm this weekend. IT’S THE MIDDLE OF MARCH! STOP SNOWING!
      Are you sure I can’t just send it to you? :)
