Emma Lynn: 6 Months



Dear Emma:

I can't believe we are already halfway to a year! It is going by so quickly and you are changing so much. I say this every month and I have said this to your brother and sister too, but you just need to slow down. You have definitely had a lot of big milestones this month.

You are now sitting up with a little assistance. You are needing very little assistance actually, but I wouldn't quite call you a sitter yet. But you are so close. You love to sitting. You love to be able to see everything and I just put toys in front of you and that's all you need. However you have also become a little bit needier these days too. You just always want me right there or always want your dad to be holding you. So that's a bit tough sometimes but we are working on more independent play.

Another bit thing happened this month with you now eating rice cereal. You still aren't sure about how you feel about the rice cereal but it's hard to believe you are actually to the point where you are eating foods. Another sign that you are just growing too fast.

Along with all the other things you are doing, we have officially moved you out of your infant car seat into a transition carseat. You still have months of facing backward but you were just out of space in your infant seat and had grown out of it based on your height so we got you a new one and you see to love it. You are a little more upright, you can see everything better and you have more room in general. Along with that, you are now sitting in the front of carts. I have to put your blanket in one side and my purse on the other but you are loving your front row seat.

You are still napping three times a day with only one of those naps being a long nap. You fight your evening nap every day because that's definitely your least favorite but I'm not ready to give that one up yet. Because you are now having rice cereal a couple times a day, you are stretching out your eating so you eat every 4-5 hours now and have upped some of your bottles up to 8 ounces.

You are so aware of everything. You like to watch your siblings and often get upset when they leave the room where you can't see them anymore. You have also become very chatty. I'm always trying to listen close in case your first word pops out, but so far it's all just gibberish. But it's pretty dang cute gibberish.

You are so well loved around here. You are so easy-going and just love being in the middle of the family. We can't imagine without you even though you do often throw up on us. You make us all laugh and I know I can't wait to see more of your personality as you continue to grow. I love you so much little girl.

Love, Mama
