Bonnie will be six months old tomorrow. Even typing “six months” seems so crazy. I can hardly believe she’s been in our lives for six months, and at the same time, it’s impossible to imagine our lives without her.
She has two teeth now, and she is sitting up by herself with ease. She is sleeping through the night again, and we typically don’t hear much from her between 7pm and 7am. This is so refreshing after the several-week-long rough patch she hit around the four month mark.
Her biggest area of struggle is her naps. She does not like napping alone, so this is something we are really having to work on. Even if she is being held, she takes very short naps, and they are even shorter if she’s alone in her crib… not to mention the time it takes her to fall asleep on her own! But we’re working on this, as painful as it may be…
Baths still seem to be one of the highlights of her day, and she’s completely obsessed with her feet and toes! When Andrew is home in time, he’s in charge of her bath time, since this is usually the only time he gets with her during the week. It’s their thing, and I love listening in on them!
Although Bonnie does give us lots of smiles and laughs, she is a pretty serious baby most of the time.
I don’t know what she weighs, but I do know that she is LONG. People comment often on how long she is for her age, and she is already wearing nine month clothing, thanks to her length.
Bonnie still gets her nourishment through breastfeeding, but she does eat (or at least play with) other foods a couple times throughout each day. She really seems to like bananas, apples, carrots, and sweet potatoes. She prefers her veggies to be mixed with other, sweeter things. Apparently she has a sweet tooth like her mom!
We are spending Christmas with my family, and I CANNOT WAIT to get there, but we are making a short stop in Andrew’s hometown to visit with his family for a couple of days first. I’m nervous about all the driving, since Bonnie has proven time and time again that she strongly dislikes the car. But it will be so worth it to see our families soon!
