6 Months

Sorry for being late.  :( 
Weight: 13lbs 6oz
Length: 25 in
Eating: This past month we introduced some solids.  It really was a lot of fun.  We started off with oatmeal.  We would just do about 2 tsp of oatmeal mixed with 1oz of breast milk just to get her use to the spoon.  It was pretty soupy.  We did this for about a solid week.  I think I was in denial that she was ready for solids because it took me awhile before I started introducing anything else.  We introduced carrots first and she loved them!  Then we tried some green beans.  She wasn't too excited about them.  This has been her eating routine: nurse in the morning, 3 bottles at daycare, nurse in the evening followed by solids and then again once before bed.  When we introduced oatmeal her bottles went way down at daycare.  She was only eating 5-6oz during the entire day at the daycare and then she eventually just dropped one bottle right at the end of the month, so she is only taking 2 bottles during the day.
Bedtime: We start our bedtime routine around 8:30.  This consists of bath (which is every other day), baby massages (lotion time), pjs, eat and bed by 9:15.
Awake: She is awake for about 2 hours at a time right now.  We start our day at about 6:45.  If she's not awake by then, we wake her up to get her day going.
Naps: She typically takes two shorter naps in the morning.  Then in the afternoon she will take about a two and a half hour nap.  She then takes a 45-60 minute nap in the evenings from 6:30-7:30ish.
Diapers: size 2.
Clothes: 3 months, we got rid of all of the clothes that were 0-3 month as they were too small.
Favorites: She is now sitting up by herself.  Just this last week she figured out how to do the army crawl.  She is on her tummy but can pull herself forward by her arms.  It is too cute.  We have a baby on the go!

Baby Food

Someone loves her baby food and her big girl high chair.  She gets excited when it's time to sit in the high chair as she knows what's coming next.  So far we have done oatmeal cereal, carrots, greenbeans, and avocado.  She's still unsure about the greenbeans.  We love the avocado!

Green Beans...YUCK!

We tried green beans this last week and Alexis wasn't too impressed.

We have tried them again and she is starting to like them.  Not as much as the carrots, but I can get her to eat them.

Baby Cereal

We tried Oatmeal Cereal for the first time last night. Alexis LOVED it. She was leaning in to get the spoon and even reached for the spoon. She did quite well and ate more than what got on her. She did cry at one point when I was going too slow. It was so fun!!! I can't wait to start baby food with her. :)
