Mia: 6 Month Update


Height/Weight: At her six month appointment, Mia lost some weight, 15 lbs 12 oz, and didn't grow in length, 26"! I'm thinking that her loss in weight (4 oz) is due to all her extra activity.

Sleeping: When Mia was 1.5 months, she slept through the night (10p-5a, 5:15a-8a) with serious ease. It was incredible. BUT during her 4 month regression, Cristhian and I were up at crazy hours of the night (wakes up at 10:30p, 1a, 4:30a and 6a) settling this crazy baby. It got better at 5.5-6 months (wakes up at 11:30p, 4:30a and 6a to nurse, but pretty much goes down from 8p-7/8a)... but I need sleep! Cristhian and I decided to sleep train her this month. Not only am I keeping her in her crib for naps and for her nighttime sleep, I'm trying to teach this little bugger to calm herself down. Hopefully we have good news for our 7 month update.

Social: Mia has started to notice strangers. She does NOT smile or socialize, but she definitely acknowledges their existence. Hah. Also, while visiting relatives in Lowell, Amelia recognized a lot of our family members. They were incredibly surprised to see Mia's willingness to play with them. It was sweet!

Likes: iPhones, iPads, laptops and finger foods!

Dislikes: Going down for a nap!

Crying: She's done a lot better with crying. Now my baby seldom cries! The only time she wails is when she's overtired and fighting her nap.

Feeding: Mia's first food was avocado! She didn't really like it, but alas. Food is food and it is a necessity to our well-being.

Clothes: Amelia is in size 9 and 9-12 months for clothing and is still wearing size 3 Huggies Little Movers.

Baby Gear: Mia likes being worn in our SakuraBloom ring sling; she loves her new best friend, a Jellycat Lamb (affectionately known as Latte); her beloved Wubbanubs Rupert, Ellie (RIP) and Jorge have been her #1 since birth... Baby Einstein Exersaucer and her Britax B-Agile stroller/tray. We could not imagine living without any of these!

Milestones: Little One is crazy with her pumps and army crawl- it is the funniest thing to watch!

Postpartum: I'm doing 100% better than when I was discharged from the hospital. It honestly feels crazy knowing that I've raised a daughter who's now half a year old. Also, I'm still breastfeeding every 3 hours and sorta cluster feeding in the evening
