6 months official post

 Back on March 10, my baby turned 6 months old. I won't say how hard it is to believe that she's six months old already because I say it every time I blog most of you are mothers and know that time flies! ;) We had Maci's 6 month check-up on Monday, so I wanted to document everything. Her pediatrician is still on maternity leave, so this was our last visit with the "fill in" ped. For Maci's 9 month appointment, her doctor will be back, WOO HOO! Don't get me wrong, the fill ins were fine, but her pediatrician tells me how adorable my kids are every time she sees them, and who doesn't love to hear that?!?! I mean, her pediatrician is an amazing professional! ;)

 *Weight/height: 18 lbs 4 oz (81st percentile) and 27.5 inches (95th percentile). She's a TALL girl! :) 

What are you up to these days...

*Developmental milestones: your favorite mode of transportation is rolling. You've perfected that skill (belly to back, back to belly). You can sit up like a pro with some support, and you can sit up unassisted for a bit before you tumble over :) You now eat cereal, fruit and veggies. You continue to grab and pull at everything and it goes RIGHT into your mouth! :)

*You are still in size 3 diapers

*You wear a lot of 12 month clothing. Your cousins Vivi handed down a bunch of adorable winter 12 month clothing that I insisted you are able to wear, because goodness knows come next Fall/Winter they won't fit you! :) It's too long in the arms and a little loose in the belly, but because you are so tall, they fit fine length wise

*You continue to spend your days at Linnie's. You certainly make Linnie earn her money! ;) I love you to pieces, but you are very high maintenance (and I mean that in the most lovingly way possible) so if Linnie's isn't holding you, you get mad! (Sorry, I think Mommy caused that habit! ;)) But you are getting better and I'll leave it at that, before I jinx things

*Your brother and sister love you to pieces, and the feeling is mutual. You just smile and smile when you see them. But I'd have to say, I'm pretty sure I'm still your fav! ;)

*You transitioned to a crib on Saturday night (yes, at 6 months old! I loved you sleeping in our room or SAFELY co-sleeping!) You've done semi decent since you moved in there. You COULD do better, but I'll take what I can get at this point ;)

*You continue to drool (but not as much as before), but still no teeth!

*You continue to drink 5 oz every 4-ish hours. With your reflux, you just can't handle any more or else you just get gassy and miserable

My sweet girl, your smile lights up a room, your eyes are the widest most beautiful things I've ever seen. Everywhere we go people comment about your eyes, your dimple and how much you look like your big sister. You are a blessing! It breaks my heart that you're my last baby, but what an amazing baby you are! :)

"They" say...


I always wonder who this "they" is that people refer to ;) but I know one thing that "they" say that is SO true, and that is...TIME FLIES! Goodness gracious, how in the world is my Maci Louise, 6 months old already!?!? I mean REALLY, how is it possible!??! I get that time marches on, children grow up, but I feel like it was yesterday I was taking my final belly shot in the mirror, preparing to head to the hospital for my 3rd (and final ;( csection. She is halfway to ONE! I JUST.DONT.GET.IT! I've said this before, and I'll say it a million and one more times, I think time has flown even more so because she's our last, and I know it :( Regardless of why, it happens and my sweet angel is 6 months old today. We'll do the standard monthly photo shoot tonight, and then she'll have her 6 month appointment next Monday (so I'll be back with her "stats" :))



6 months ago! Gosh, I LOVED being prego!!!!

 Meeting my baby girl! :)
