6 months

Tuesday, December 18, 2012



{Age}
Six months.
{Stats}
Clothing size 9 months! Baby got back!
{Diaper size}
3
{Feeding}
Still nursing on demand, I have been so blessed to be able to stay home with this sweet baby & our nursing relationship has been amazing after climbing the initial hurdles which you can read about here. She has been doing really well with solids.

You can read more about how I make her homemade organic baby food here. These are the foods that I have made so far.

{Sleeping}
Let's just say this, when I wake up in the morning I always ask Kirby how her night was & her reply..."I nursed fine, thank you. How about yours momma?" It really fluctuates, sometimes every 3-4 hours sometimes every 2. However she is in bed by 7 every night & isn't up for the day until 7.
{Favorite words/sounds}
Still same baba & booboo & saying mama when she is upset & wants me to come get her. She isn't saying it on command quite yet.
{Favorite toy}
She still loves her jumparoo & especially the little plastic beads that you move around on the metal wires.
{Loves}
She loves loves loves music & always has, it seems to calm her. Bath time is still a favorite for this little fish & more bath toys are definitely on her Christmas list, check out Kirby's first Christmas gift guide here. I finally figured out that her bath tub has two ends to it & she can actually sit up on one end. A new bath seat is on our Christmas list as well.

 Loves to be sitting up, if you lay her down on your lap, she immediately tries to pull herself up into a sitting position. She could blow bubbles for hours.

She is obsessed with cups & water bottles, pretty much anything that looks like you can take a drink from it. Digging through her toy box & picking out what she wants is probably her top favorite thing right now.
{Not so much}
Diaper changes, she wants to do anything but; including grabbing anything in site except what I put in her hand as a distraction.
{Nicknames}
Kirby Sue of course, & now it has turned into Sue Sue. It cracks me up that everyone calls her by those names & it isn't even close to her actual name {Kirby Deneen Rainey}.
{Signature moves}
She does this superman move on her belly, like she thinks she is going to magically crawl somewhere, lazy Sue is what we say about that.  
{Milestones}
Definitely going through another rough patch of teething for sure, but still no sign of a toofer quite yet! She has figured out her feet & loves them.

Starting to sit up for longer periods of time & attempting to balance herself more. We pile pillows around her & she really enjoys playing independently with her toys for longer periods of time now that she is able to sit up. Grabs EVERYTHING in sight & tries to eat it, even her books now when we are reading to her. She has finally mastered rolling from back to belly however, she has oddly not mastered the belly to back motion. We went through a phase where she would flip to her tummy in bed & cry & scream until I flipped her back & we would go through that at least 3 times a night before she finally put herself to sleep for the night. Then she finally figured out that she loved sleeping on her tummy & it has stayed that way.
{Adventures}
Target is a given, but we usually go in the Moby Wrap & we have officially graduated to the cart, she loves it. So Target trips have become much more frequent...score. I swear this store has become a get away for us, pure entertainment.
We have really been enjoying the cold weather. Tis' the season to get cozy & festive!
We went to the Christmas Stroll with Kirby's Auntie Jaclynn (my longest friend) down at the square & picked up a few goodies, Kirby absolutely loved it.
Brian has been living in California without us for the past two months until he was able to transfer back to Texas, you can read more about our story here. He decided to come home a day early & surprise us! I was so excited to see him & for him to see his now 6 month old that this is the only picture I managed to capture.
We spent the first weekend together in 2 months & cherished every moment of our time together. We finally got a family picture.

Here is this little video I captured of fussy pants Rainey asking her mama to come & pick her up. I couldn't love her more.
