Six Months Old
Seriously, where has half a year gone?? It seems like just yesterday the boy & I were picking out baby names. Now this incredibly fun, bundle of love, has been our world for a whole six months!
Does this mean I need to start planning her 1st Birthday, already?! Ahh, time sure does fly!
Rowan now weighs 16lbs & is 26″ long, double her birth weight & grown 6″. She can roll both ways, although she gets stuck on her tummy a lot and forgets she knows how to get back to her back…this makes for a very cranky baby. Because she hates tummy time so much she isn’t quite crawling yet; more like spinning. She can almost sit up by herself, I’m sure she will have this completely down by next week.
Over the past month we have been introducing solids. So far she loves everything, but peas (carrots, squash, sweet potatoes, apples, bananas, pears). Two new teeth have also taken up residence over the past few weeks & I am so glad she loves teeth brushing time!
Bella & Rowan have become the best of friends & are ever so much interested in each other. Her favorite activities are jumping (especially in her jumper), reading, putting things in her mouth, beating the buttons on her activity center, looking at herself in the mirror, & anything outside, to name a few.
She is such a happy baby & I seriously enjoy spending every minute with her. I’m so thankful I am able to be a stay at home mommy.
We’ve also done quite a bit of traveling recently & I think the travel bug has already bit her. I couldn’t ask for a better travel buddy. 30,000 miles under her belt & counting!
And best of all…She says mama!!
