Month Six with Leah

HAPPY HALF BIRTHDAY to our sweet little bug! (12/13/15)
I can't believe it's already been half a year since Leah's been in our life.
It's true what they say - "The days are long, but the years are short!"

Month Six Update:
Weight, Height and Head: She's 14.08 pounds (14%) and 25 inches (40%) with a 42cm head size (40%)
 Diapers:  Still in Size 2. Pampers Swaddlers and Pampers Baby Dry are our favorites. And we love the Costco brand (Kirkland) baby wipes.
Clothing: You mostly wear 6M sizes, unless its Baby Gap which runs a little big, you are only 3-6M size in that.
Eating: You are still breastfeeding and eating every 3-4 hours and also eating solids once a day at dinner time. You are a great eater and have liked everything so far. You've tried rice cereal, peas, carrots, sweet potatoes, pears, apples and bananas. The doctor told us to start feeding you solids 2x a day after your 6-month birthday - so I picked up some Organic Oatmeal to feed you breakfast going forward!
Sleep: You're a great sleeper. We bought a Dohm white noise machine, which CV and I call "the sleep machine" and it helps put you right to sleep - and helps you stay asleep throughout the night.  Mom friends - BUY ONE!!! We also put on "twinkle twinkle little star" on your Sleep Sheep that lasts 45 minutes...that combination of noises usually does the trick!
Social: You met Santa this month. You didn't cry, but you didn't smile either. You are getting ready to celebrate your first Christmas and we are so excited!
In other news: You are moving and rolling a lot more now! When we put you to sleep in your crib - you are usually the reverse position when we come to get you in the morning. I don't know how you do it, but you know how to do 180's and 360's pretty quickly!
You also starting being a brand rep for an etsy shop called CampCornDog. They sent us this amazing sushi headband for you to model - and I think you nailed your photo shoot!
Nicknames: Bug. We call you Bug all the time. Sometimes it's Leah Bug....other times it's stinkbug, love bug, cuddle bug! :)
Mommy: I'm still doing great and enjoying my time off work - although I know next month I will need to buckle down and start looking at jobs!
Likes: Bath time, eating solids, watching daddy dance, laughing with daddy
Dislikes: sitting in a car seat in a shopping cart, bedtime
