6 Months!!

It has been another busy month for our family and its time for Madeline's 6 month update!  I'm a little late with this because, as Will commented in the last blog, I've returned to work...I figured you'd understand :)

Weight:  12.5lbs
Sleep:  ~9PM-7AM
Feeding:  ~5-7oz per bottle
Clothes:  3 months

Developmentally Maddy has had a big month!  She is showing a large improvement in neck/head extension during tummy time.

She also loves to reach for toys while sitting in her Bumbo seat!

She continues to devour her hands and is starting to hold her own teethers.  No teeth yet but we're definitely in the beginning stages of teething so let the fun begin!

In her 6 month doctor appointment, we discovered that she is so close to being on the growth charts for weight (compared to other 6 month olds) and she is on the charts for length and head circumference.  I can't remember her exact numbers, but we're certainly heading in the right direction!!  With any luck, we'll graduate from the high calorie formula she's been drinking in a few weeks!  We were also surprised to have been given the green light to start rice cereal.  Honestly, I think its still a little early so we're not pushing it too much yet, but I can't believe she's starting solid foods...time can go ahead and slow down now!!

This past month, Madeline went on her first plane trip to visit friends and family in Virginia.  We were a little nervous before the flight and kept our fingers crossed that she would have an easy trip.  Turns out she's a natural traveler!  She had no problems on the plane and basically played in Will's lap for the duration of the flight to VA.

While we visited she met lots of new friends and family, all of whom spoiled her with fun new clothes and toys...

She also went swimming....

...met her new friend Jolie and celebrated her future BFF Allie!!

The other exciting milestone this month was Maddy's baptism.  Will did such a good job covering the weekend that I won't comment much except to echo the same appreciation for those who made the day special.  Thank you all :)

See you all next month!

  1. She certainly is a miracle and thanks for the update :-) She must get her ease of flight from Grandpa Kevin :-)
