Sienna’s first 6 months

Hello baby girl; can you believe that you recently turned 6 months? That’s the halfway mark and it seems you are growing at lightning speed. It’s hard to believe, but my newborn is no longer. You are becoming one adorable little person. Even the littlest things you do make me smile and bring such joy to my life. Having a girl makes me happy is an understatement.

At 1 month you basically loved eating, and sleeping (you get that from me!) but I couldn’t help to dress you up every chance I got. At your 1 month appointment, the doctor couldn’t help but notice you almost doubled in size. Clearly you were a milk lover and you had enough rolls to prove it.

At 2 months you started to smile and made my heart melt even more! I never thought anyone could be more smiley and happy than your brother, but there you went and prove me wrong. One thing you dislike with a passion is when we wet your hair. Oh bath time is definitely not your favorite moment (it still isn’t at 4 months!).

By month 3 we could officially call you little miss chatterbox. You even decided 3am was the perfect moment to strike up a conversation (with yourself). You are such a happy baby, I still can’t get over it. You LOVE looking at yourself in the mirror and standing up (even if it’s for 2 seconds), but what you love the most are your hands. If you could, you would put both hands in your mouth at the same time.

Your brother Mavrick, what can I say… the love you have for him even at 4 months is indescribable. Every time he’s in the same room as you, you look at him with such awe which automatically makes you smile. You love it when he holds you or kisses your face. It’s the sweetest thing ever and I can’t wait until you are a little older so that you can play together.

Prior to your 4 month birthday, bathtime was your least favorite thing. Well now you love it! You splash around, chatter and don’t even cry. You even took a bath with your big brother for the first time and it was so fun to watch. You are mastering holding objects, and though you don’t realize it yet, you have an amazing pitch!

A big milestone was getting your ears pierced. I always knew you’d get them pierced early on and grandma offered to bring you. She got you your first pair of emerald earrings (your birthstone) and I couldn’t be happier. You barely cried and look even more adorable now!

At your 5 month birthday I decided to start giving you solids, but after having tummy aches and gas I decided to wait 2 weeks to start up again. I don’t know what changed in those two weeks, but now you eat like a champ. Your favorite is anything fruit, more specifically bananas and pears. As for vegetables, green beans are your favorite and peas not so much (but that’s okay your brother wasn’t a fan either).

You love sitting in the highchair and your favorite game is trying to grab on to the water bottle… oh boy do you love drinking water. You still are exclusively breastfed even though grandma attempted to give you formula while I was at a wedding, but you didn’t want any.

This picture represents how you are every second of every day — a happy, smiley, baby. It’s contagious. You are becoming a little madame – wanting to sit up by yourself  but you get too excited about what’s happening around you that you fall over. Then you roll on your stomach and you get frustrated. You still haven’t mastered the tummy to back roll… soon I hope.

You still have your fingers in your mouth the majority of the time and though you haven’t started teething yet, it’s coming… I can see it. Your favorite body part is your feet. Who needs toys when you have feet for entertainment. At your 6 month check up, you weighed in at 18 lbs and 27.5″ which puts you in the 85 percentile for weight and 90 percentile for length. You are definitely bigger than your brother at the same age.

As for sleep… it’s still on and off but you’ve been in your crib since you hit the 5 month mark. Some days you will sleep through the night, other times you will wake up 2-4 times a night, but I realized it wasn’t because you were hungry but because you needed to burp or had cramps or simply wanted your pacifier. Hopefully soon you will sleep through the night, but I can’t say I’m complaining since you are an amazing baby.

Both you and your brother melt my heart everyday. I’m so lucky to have both of you. You are my life and the reason I make it through even the toughest times. Mama loves you!

    Thanks for your write-up. One other thing is always that individual American states have their unique laws that will affect householders, which makes it very hard for the our elected representatives to come up with a whole new set of guidelines concerning foreclosures on home owners. The problem is that each state provides own laws which may interact in a negative manner in relation to foreclosure procedures.

    I believe that a property foreclosure can have a significant effect on the client’s life. Home foreclosures can have a 8 to decade negative effects on a borrower’s credit report. A borrower who may have applied for a mortgage or almost any loans for instance, knows that the worse credit rating is actually, the more tricky it is to secure a decent loan. In addition, it could possibly affect a borrower’s ability to find a quality place to let or rent, if that gets to be the alternative homes solution. Thanks for your blog post.

    Finally, the packaging. Valentino sunglasses will come with a quality branded case, suitable to the size and shape of the sunglass model to ensure adequate protection, they should also come with a high quality cleaning cloth which is usually with an embossed logo, not printed. In addition, an information booklet from the manufacturer Safilo will accompany the sunglasses.

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative and interesting, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is something which not enough folks are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I came across this in my search for something concerning this.

    In line with my observation, after a foreclosed home is offered at a bidding, it is common with the borrower in order to still have the remaining balance on the mortgage. There are many loan companies who try and have all service fees and liens paid back by the up coming buyer. Even so, depending on particular programs, rules, and state regulations there may be a few loans that are not easily resolved through the transfer of lending options. Therefore, the duty still lies on the borrower that has acquired his or her property in foreclosure. Many thanks sharing your thinking on this web site.

    Hello, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, superb blog!

    A large percentage of of whatever you point out happens to be astonishingly precise and it makes me wonder the reason why I hadn’t looked at this in this light previously. This article really did switch the light on for me as far as this subject matter goes. However there is one position I am not necessarily too comfy with and whilst I try to reconcile that with the actual main theme of your point, let me observe exactly what all the rest of your readers have to say.Well done.
