6 Months Stats

Alright. Shannon has motivated me to be more intentional about blogging about what Audrey can do at each phase of her life. Thank you, Shannon, for doing such a great job detailing life with Morgan to get me going!

Audrey checked in at 26 inches and 14 lbs 10 oz at her 6 month checkup. That is another drop in height for her (60%...used to be 90%) and staying steady at 25% for weight. She's a little one! She is eating solid foods. She's had peas, carrots, sweet potatoes, prunes, and pears. Audrey's favorite is carrots!

Audrey is a rolling machine. When she is placed in her crib, she would rather play than sleep. She rolls about two miles worth in her crib before she grows tired and goes to sleep.

Audrey also learned to sleep on her tummy. If she is only a little tired, she will sleep on her side. If she is super tired, she immediately rolls to her tummy and buries her face into her taggie. She prefers to sleep with a pacifier and her taggie touching her face.

Sitting up is still a struggle, but she is getting better. If she is sitting by me on the couch, I'll let her sit while I fold a shirt or something. She's not so good that I would leave her sitting on the floor beyond my reach.

Today, while Mimi was here, we trimmed her hair. She no longer has that strand of hair that curled over her ear or the long straight strands that ran down her back.

She is constantly blowing air out her mouth while pressing her lips around her tongue. She also likes to kick her knees. She will kick a knee while eating, while nursing, or while getting her diaper changed. It's really funny.

She likes to sleep about 12 hours at night. I have been feeding her at 4am, but the doctor said that she can go later than that, so we'll see how that goes!

She's been on all fours, but she scoots back rather than crawl. Again, she prefers to roll.

That's our little munchkin at 6 months!
