Avery's 6th Month

Sweet Avery, 

You turned 6 months old on October 28th!! I can't believe you are 6 months old already. That just seems so big.

You are growing so fast and getting so big. You had a doctor's appointment on Oct. 24th because you were coughing again and you weighed 17 lbs. 8 ounces!! You had to go on your first antibiotic because your ears were on the verge of infection. :-( You did great with the antibiotic though and took it pretty well. You seem to be feeling much better now. Yay!

You are getting better and better at sitting up. You still need a spotter, but you are just about to get the hang of it. You can go much longer periods of time without falling over and you even catch yourself if you lean too far to the left or right. We just have to watch you because you will sometimes lean a little too far backwards. :-( You love being able to sit up and play with your toys though! 

You are taking a 6 ounce bottle every four hours now and you are eating baby food mixed in there as well. You love your baby food! There hasn't been a food I've given you that you haven't liked. We've tried all kinds of foods now and you like them all. :-)

You are wearing size 3 diapers and size 6-9 and 9 month clothes. 

You are also still sleeping great. You generally only wake up once to eat and you always go right back to sleep. :-) You usually go to sleep at around 9 p.m. and then you usually sleep until around 8 the next morning. You also take around 3 naps a day. One short one in the morning, a longer one (sometimes around 2 hours) between 12-1 and then another short one in the evening. You are such a good sleeper, just like your mommy. :-)

You got your 2 front, bottom teeth this month. Maw Maw noticed one of them poking through on Friday, October 24th while you were at the doctor's office. Then later that evening, Papa and I noticed the one right next to it poking through. They are both through now and it's so darn cute.

Things you love lately:
-Bottles/Baby Food
-The Remote (I was letting you play with it Sunday evening and you kept changing the channel, so I tried to hide it from you and you threw a little fit. Ha. So I remembered that Jackson had a little toy remote from when he was a baby, so I got it out and you were satisfied playing with it instead... thank goodness.)
-You're growing to like your binkie more and more.
-Being the center of attention, as you always have.
-You love to scream and have us scream back at you. You could play this game for a long time. :-)

We celebrated Halloween this month and you looked so adorable in your little mouse costume! It was too cold on Halloween to get you out trick or treating, but thankfully I had taken you to the pumpkin patch down the road from us the week before and I took a few pictures of you and your brother in your costumes. :-)

You also went to your first Harvest Fest at church this month. Thankfully it was super warm that night, so we were able to spend the whole evening outside by the fire. Once again, you looked super cute in your mouse costume!

Well, I think that wraps up month 6 for you baby girl. You are so precious and we all just love you to pieces! I seriously can't get enough of kissing your chubby cheeks! They are just so kissable. You are such a blessing and we all love you to the moon and back.

xoxo - Mommy
