Alice: Month Six

Happy half birthday to our little girl!!
Alice6months

Month six and currently loving...

- rolls. Gone are the days of finding her where I left her, this girl is a little worm.

- sleep. I love sleep. Right around four months our sleeping went downhill. I think it's a combination of teething, rolling, growing and who knows what else... I swear she slept better as a newborn. I'm tired.

- baby food! Alice has had her first taste of food and I am proud to say she loves it! She is definitely her mother's daughter. We just need to expand her palette now beyond rice cereal, peas, and carrots.

- this is totally non baby related but I am obsessed with this taro frozen yogurt. so. good.

- my family and my friends. I'm grateful to have such a great support system right now. And of course my husband, he's pretty awesome too :)

- mom's groups. Ten babies on one couch is pretty much cuteness overload.

- cute baby squeals. Alice is still not much of a laugher. She seems to prefer the silent kind, I guess it's just so funny no sound comes out?? She really loves peekaboo though and can get some pretty intense squeals going on. Squeals are also reserved for her cousin/bff, Sydney.

- the way her eyes light up when her daddy comes home.

- I never thought I'd say this but: making dinner. Okay, not every night, but I sorta appreciate when Mike comes home and hangs with Alice and I have some alone time in the kitchen to be productive and actually finish something I started. Maybe I should just change that to alone time...

- fluffy hair that tickles your nose.

- bath time. She get's really hyper around bath time and I love listening to her and Mike play.

- getting to bed by 9:00pm. Not so cool, being woken up an hour later and then realizing it's only an hour later... did I mention I'm tired ;)


It was near impossible getting a photo this month, just imagine lots of squealing, rolling and lots and lots of blurry pics. I love this photo and that hyper look in her eyes, it kinda captures her little personality right about now. So happy. So wiggly.

  3. So cute!

    Oh gosh, we're 5 weeks in and people keep telling me it gets better on the sleep front. That's how we are getting through this daze. Please don't tell me it all goes to pot at 4 months too!

    Happy Mommy's Day!

    1. haha, I'm learning that you'll never know what you'll get with these babies, Maggie! She slept really well at 5 weeks so maybe she's doing it backwards?? Sending lots of sleepy vibes your way...

  6. An earlier bedtime worked for us when our girl was waking around six months. Like up to 8 times a night. Started putting her down earlier and she started sleeping through the nite again! Really!
    Happy baby healthy sleep I think was the book suggesting that.
    Good luck!
