6 months

Friday, August 22, 2014

Our baby girl was 6 months old yesterday!

She's *almost* sitting up unassisted and I'll be surprised if she's not crawling all over the place this time next month!  She gets up on her hands and knees and tries SO hard, but just can't quite master it.  She's eating rice cereal for breakfast at daycare every morning and drinks mostly formula now, which is honestly freeing.  Breastfeeding was great and I loved it, but it was hard too.  She wears size 3-6 month clothes now, FINALLY.  No teeth yet, but she chews on anything and everything, so maybe soon.  Sydie is such a morning person, it's unbelievable.  She's at her best when she first wakes up.  I have NO idea where she gets that from, because her mama and daddy are not like that at all.  In fact, at about 4:30 the other morning, she decided it was time to wake up so she rolled over and gave us the biggest giggle ever.  It was adorable, but we were too exhausted to truly appreciate it - ha!  Oh yeah, she's still sleeping in our room because she wakes 1-2 times a night still.  Hopefully she will drop those night feeds soon and we can transition her to her crib.  I have to say that even when she does sleep for long stretches (she has slept through the night - 11-12 hours straight! - a couple times), I still wake up every couple hours to reach over and make sure she's breathing.  I wonder when the constant worry about her breathing will go away.  Hopefully sooner than later or I will end up gray-haired before my time!

Anyway, onto some more cute pictures!

We love you Sydie-girl!
