Lily Jane 6 Months

Dear Lily Jane
I can’t believe last Sunday was you half birthday, really 6 months already Lily Jane you have to stop growing up so fast. You went for your 6-month check up and had to get 2 shots, you were not happy at all. You weighed 15.4 (28%) and height was 25 in (11%).. You are still in 3 months, and 3-6 months clothes but they are starting to get a little tight so we are going to be moving up to 6-month clothes soon. You are still wearing size 2 diapers. You are taking 2-3 naps a day but you are starting to fight taking your afternoon nap, which sometimes makes for a long evening. You are going to bed at 7:30 and getting up at 12:00ish and 4ish and 6:30. I wish you would drop the 12ish feeding but it is so worth seeing your cute little face in the middle of night. You have started rolling over in your crib and sleeping on your stomach. You are becoming a little mini me of your daddy. Everywhere we go everyone says how much you look like your daddy, but you still act like your mommy so sweet.

You are so close to sitting up on your own and we keep practicing everyday. Some of your other favorites are hanging out in your jumper, chewing on Sophie, rolling and moving all over the floor, and being held. You went to the pool for the first time, and you absolutely loved it. You were kicking your little legs so fast. Your Papaw, Uncle Cody and Aunt Melissa were there. So glad that you liked it because we will be going to the pool all summer long.

You have started to eat solids. I have been making all your food and I have enjoyed every minute of it. So far there is not a food you wont eat. The foods you have tired so far are peas, green beans, sweet potatoes, bananas, applesauce, and squash. You are still eating oatmeal as well. You are still eating 5-6oz bottles and now you want to hold your own bottles and feed your self.

You were dedicated at church this pass weekend and it made Mommy so happy. I am so happy to be able to raise you in a godly home and I can’t wait to teach you all about God. All your grandparents came and your Uncle Cody and Aunt Melissa came. You are surround by so many people that love you so much. We have enjoyed these past 6 months with you and would never change them. You bring so much joy into our lives. We love you!!!!!!
