6 months!

Thursday Hannah hit the half a year mark! Honestly, I have no idea where these last 6 months went. Time is just zipping on by with reckless abandon.


Here are her stats:

Weight: 12 lb. 8 oz; 3%

Length: 24.5”, 13%

It turns out Miss Hannah gained ZERO weight since her 4 month appointment. This is not good, folks. I had a feeling my milk supply was dropping as a result of my birth control so I quit taking it a few weeks ago. I think it’s coming back and I really just think she did drop a little from that and is now on her way back up. We started solids a few weeks ago since she was starting to act a little fussy and hungry and that seemed to do the trick. She loves cereal but hates veggies. The mere taste of them on her tongue instantly sends her into gagging fits, often resulting in a little throw up action. What a drama queen. Anyway…she has a follow-up appointment in 2 weeks for a weight check, and I’m sure she’ll have gained some by then. I’m not worrying about anything until there’s something to worry about. She’s still a roly poly kid and sleeping well at night, so I don’t think she’s starving.


She is a very happy, laid back kid. She loves to squeal and babble and especially loves it when serenaded by her sister. Summer is a great big sister, and always wants to make sure Hannah’s having a good time and has enough toys to play with. I often find her buried in toys, like this:


She doesn’t roll, and she can’t quite sit up on her own yet. But she does take 2 naps, sometimes 3, and still loves to be swaddled when she sleeps. She goes to bed around 6:15-6:30 pm and wakes up to eat between 3 and 4, although last night she lasted until 5! She is more of an early riser than I would like her to be. But then, I have a hard time with anything before 8 am.

She loves bath time, and still tries to drink the water.


Sometimes after I nurse her and burp her she will turn her head and start to suck on whatever’s closest. Usually it’s my cheek or my chin. It always makes me laugh.


She is such a sweet girl and we just love to snuggle her. She is the perfect shopping buddy and is always good for a smile for her mama.


Happy half birthday, Hannah Boo!

I can NOT believe she is 6 months already! That time flew- even to me! She is adorable. I would love to see a comparison photo- one of Summer at 6 months, too. They look SO much alike. I love the picture of her buried in toys. I have experienced that a few times myself. So, so cute and brought back memories for me :)

WOW! I can't believe she's 6 months... we haven't even seen the lil' munchkin yet. We think she looks like a little girl version of Derrick.
