Emerson is Six Months

Sunday, July 30, 2017

We are HALF way to our sweet girl's first birthday. How is that even possible? I feel like she has changed so much lately and while it is so fun to see her go through all of these milestones, it definitely brings tears to my eyes to see how quickly she's growing. 

We had her 6 month check up at the pediatrician's office last week and she is just over 15 pounds which puts her in the 27th percentile which is huge since she has been anywhere from 7th-14th percentile previously. She is 26 1/4" which dropped her from the 90th percentile to around 60th...so I'm not sure how accurate that is. 

Our pediatrician thinks her blue eyes are here to say, and I am so thankful for that! For someone who is brown haired, brown eyes, this makes my heart happy to have a blue eyed baby. We don't have anyone on my side or Andrew's side that has blue eyes so we don't know where she gets it from! Her once very dark hair has turned blonde but is beginning to darken up a little. Who would ever think I'd have a blonde hair, blue eyed babe? Not me!

We are transitioning her to size 2 diapers but she's mainly still in 1's. She's still in a lot of 3 month clothes but we are transitioning her to 6 months. Tiny girl! 

She is a thumb sucker and I hope that doesn't stay around for long. She really only sucks her thumb when she is really tired and fighting her sleep. She's never really taken a paci and there are days that I wish she would take that instead of her thumb. You can always take a paci away, but not the thumb. 

She is crawling! Well, I say "crawling" but really it is an army crawl on all fours and she scoots back and forth (and rocks) but can definitely get around. We'll put something a few feet away (she loves fetching our phones) and she'll shimmy her way to it and grab it! 

So far, she's eaten oatmeal (her absolute favorite), peas (her absolute least favorite), green beans, carrots and sweet potatoes. Our pediatrician recommended that she try peanut butter. I had always heard that you were supposed to wait until they were one, but she said that has changed and now the earlier they are introduced to it, the least likely they are to have the allergy. Emerson likes it okay but not as much as I thought she would! She's only tried it twice but I'm sure she'll grow to like it more. At school, she doesn't always seem interested in eating her veggies but as soon as one of her teachers starts feeding another baby, she'll eat. Copy cat. 

She doesn't nap that much at school and I believe that's because she's still extremely nosey. She is too interested in the activities around her and it distracts her from sleeping. I'm okay with that because she's sleeping through the night so she gets plenty of sleep at home. She's been sleeping through the night since she was 9 weeks old and I can't complain about that! She currently sleeps from about 7:30pm-6:30am. 

We absolutely love her teachers at "school" and Emerson is always sad to leave them in the afternoons. I love getting all of these pictures from them throughout the day. It makes me feel like I'm there with her.
