Happy Six Month Birthday Kylie!

Kylie turns 6 months old today. We couldn't be prouder or happier.

Here are her milestones---Dear Kylie:

Your biggest accomplishment this month was learning to sit upright.

You can roll from your stomach to your back to your stomach again in both directions.

You’ve started inch-worming around. You’re learning the mechanics of crawling.

You are infatuated with your toes. You constantly pull off your socks and bring your toes to your mouth.

You love to eat your solid foods twice a day. You added applesauce, pears, prunes and squash to your diet. You still nurse first thing in the morning but you prefer bottles for the rest of the day. You have around six bottles a day (approximately 15 oz of breast milk and 6 of formula).

You still love to nap. After your morning nursing, you love to go back to sleep in your swing for an hour or two. You’ll take around 4 naps for the rest of the day and each nap lasts 45 minutes to an hour.

We still read you “Goodnight Room” as part of your bedtime routine. You are asleep in your crib around 6:30pm and you sleep until 6:30am.

You are awake approximately 8 hours a day and asleep around 16 hours.

We started giving you a bath every night that you thoroughly enjoy. You take your bath in a large infant tub placed within the bathroom tub. You love to kick and splash water. You are so occupied with splashing that you aren’t too interested in your bath toys.

You wear 6 month and 6-9 month clothes. You went from a size one diaper to size two.

You babble, coo and laugh often. You make your mommies smile every day.

You weigh 14 lbs. 9 oz., which is a gain of 13 oz. from the previous month.

Your mommies lowered your crib one level. They put childproof covers on all their electrical outlets and bought baby gates.

Happy Birthday Dearest One!
