Six Months

Let's take a pause and sob because my baby girl is six months old.


That's half a year y'all. HALF A YEAR. I want to both laugh and cry at the same time. I honestly cannot believe that my baby is a half of a year old. It feels UNREAL.

This time last year, I was somewhere around 13 weeks pregnant. I had just seen my baby girl for the second time, and captured this cute video of her. Looking back... wow, I can't believe she is now 6 months old!!! I know I've said that already. But dang. Six months.

So, what are you up to baby girl?
- You're still in size 2 diapers
- You still fit into MOST 3-6 months clothes, but can comfortably wear 6-9
- We now know you are allergic to Kirklands, Pampers and Luvs diapers. I REALLY need to cloth diaper you.
- You had your first cold, and were PISSED OFF ROYALLY whenever Momma or Mamaw came near you with saline drops.
- You still wake up randomly at 4 am in the morning ready to play.
- You still eat ANYTHING we get close to your mouth. Except peas. Still not a pea fan. You can self-feed yourself some stuff, and you heart the cereal puffs like nothing else.
- Your favorite food is still banana's.
- You eat MUCH better for Mamaw than for MMomma.
- You ADORE water bottles. You want to play with them, and drink out of them, and then get it all over yourself.
- You love being worn. Which makes me happy.
- You're still a Momma's girl, although in the last month you HAVE let Mamaw put you to sleep for naps!
- You consistently roll over now! And are SO FREAKING CLOSE to sitting up unassisted. You can for around 30-45 seconds tops before you start to topple.
- You're starting to fall asleep in your carseat occasionally!
- Still no teeth!

I love you baby girl. As you continue to grow and mature, and break your Momma's heart... I'm so proud of you, and how much you're growing. I love sharing meals with you, I love hearing your squeals and your hearty laugh. I when you turn and open and close your hands to me. I love when you try to push my shirt up yourself because you cannot wait ANOTHER SECOND to nurse. I love when you cry and scream when someone's holding you, then turn and grin at them REALLY big once Mommy gets you. I just love you. More than I can express.

Love, Mommy

  1. Hey Shaina, I know how you're feeling. My baby Natasha's birthday is Oct 23. She's a bit over 6 months. I also can't believe she's already 6 months. Where did the time go? And what is this obsession with water bottles? really. If it's in her reach, she'll grab for it and if it's not in her reach she'll start calling "DaDa" until he comes and then tries to reach for the bottle again. I guess this is her way of showing daddy what she wants. and of course she gets it!
    have a happy mother's day.
