Happy half a year, my sweet B.
I feel like I was just writing E’s half a year letter, and now we are here. You really were just born. Now you are a rolling machine. Never staying where I put you. And always preferring your tummy. You even like to sleep on your tummy or side.
You push up so very high. We call it your cobra pose as it looks like almost all of your body is pushed up in the air.
Occasionally, you let go and go all super hero! This goofy face makes me laugh. You will hold onto it for a little bit when I smile at you and then go all silly-smile! You can’t see it here, but just two days before your official 6 month birthday, your first tooth (your bottom right) popped through the skin. I’m certain the next bottom tooth is soon behind it.
Your lip-tie is causing us some issues lately. We had a consultation and the doctor said they would have to sedate you because you are too wiggly. I wish we could have had it looked at when we had your tongue-tie clipped at just days old (I didn’t know to look for it or suggest it). Mommy and daddy haven’t decided what to do, but nursing you hurts and I’ve had a clogged duct or three twice in the past two weeks.
You used to sleep through the night. Now? You are up once or twice and only go back to sleep after eating. Your sister did some baby-led weaning and purees, so we thought we’d do the same with you. Your biggest sister wanted to be the first to feed you, and mommy and daddy are all about outsourcing, so we let her do it! I think you both liked it.
You really have a sweet demeanor and only get truly upset if nobody is keeping you company (which doesn’t happen often) or you are tired. By default, you end up having to go with the flow and can only have naps at a certain time, regardless of when you woke up.
We love you sweet girl. (Now, excuse me while I go put away the swing and bouncy seat you will no longer use and go cry in a corner. Who said you were allowed to grow up?)
