Rhea is Six Months

At our six month well check, the pediatrician kept saying he couldn’t believe she was six months old already. I’m glad I’m not the only one.


She is a chubby, long little one with a head size that is literally off the charts. Huh. It doesn’t look at that big to me. But apparently, she is supporting a cabez√≥n. Clearly, it’s full of brains.


Milestones: Sitting up unsupported for a few minutes! First solid food (I mashed up some banana for her). She must have finally rolled from her tummy back to her back because I have found her pretty far away from her play mat. I have yet to actually witness it, though (bad mommy). She much prefers to fuss until I roll her back for her. She is starting to babble a little bit, and I could have sworn I heard her say “uh oh” in her car seat the other day. Impossible, you say? Keep in mind her head is off the charts, mmmkay? read more

Wren: six months?!!


Dear Wren,

Today you are six months old. I know this is the common refrain among parents, but where does the time go?! You’ve grown from a newborn to a full-fledged baby!

Milestones: You are rolling around like a champ. Much sooner than your sisters did. You are ready to catch up and start playing with them! You babble and gurgle up a storm when someone is talking to you. You love grabbing your Sofie the Giraffe and shoving it in your mouth to gnaw on it. You also love splashing the water with your little hands in the bath and getting all startled when the water hits you in the face. You are not sitting up yet, but you are close! You also just started eating solids a little bit. You are undecided about whether you like them or not.
