Harlow: 1-6 Months

Harlow Robin: 6 Months Old

6 Months 

-She sits up all by herself, started about 4 days before 6 mnth
-She wears size 1 diapers
-She wears 0-3 mnth and 3 mnth clothes
-We tried our first solid foods about 3 weeks ago, she eats carrots, spinach, peaches, and rice cereal
-She laughs at our dog Reggie all the time 
-She reached for me for the 1st time the other day (talk about heart melting)
-She loves to swim! We swim at my parents and I think she would jump in if I let her. At home we have a little wading pool and she splashes so much im usually soaked too 
-She goes to bed every night by 8:30 
-She sucks her thumb like a champ 
-She nurses every 3 hours, I pump and she does a bottle only about once a week
-She loves other babies/kids she wants to touch their faces and feel their hair
-She loves to be in her jumper
-She takes 2 naps a day, a morning and a afternoon 
-We are pretty convinced she says "HI" I say it to her a lot, especially when she wakes in the morning and from a nap. Usually she is talking to the dog when I hear her say it :/
-Her 6 month check up isnt for a week or so, but if I were guessing she weighs about 13ish lbs
-She is a very happy baby, smiles at everyone

I will add more as I think of it...

Mommy and Daddy love you so much! We cannot believe that you are already half a year old! You are such a happy girl! You rarely cry, and you give smiles freely! We pray for you often, and love watching you learn new things! These last 6 months have been so much fun. We are so thankful for you Harlow. 
Love Mom and Dad
