Already 6 months??!

Our baby girl is already 6 months old! Here's a snippet of what her daily routine is like:

  • Up between 6:30 - 7:30am.
  • Get ready to leave the house by 8:15am.
  • Arrive at sitter's house by 8:30am.
  • Sophie plays.. sings.. eat.. watch baby Einstein with her BFF - Leah (sitter's daughter who is about 7 months older). In between all those activities she poops and naps too :) If the weather is nice, they go out for fresh air.
  • Grandparents pick up around 3:30pm.
  • Hang out w/ grandparents until mommy & daddy come between 5:30 - 6:30pm.
  • Have dinner w/ grandparents then go home around 7:30pm.
  • Take a bath and go to sleep between 8:30 - 9pm.
Sophia does not sleep through the night yet. She wakes up sometimes around midnight then once more around 4am. If we're lucky, she only wakes up once around 3:30am. She usually wake up for feeding then go right back to sleep which is not TOO bad.

Sophie has been a little fussy this couple days because she's teething. Yup, we can see one little white spike coming through her front lower gum. Sophie can also sit by herself with little support. She loves toys with music/sound. Pacifier used to help her to sleep but now she doesn't care much about it. She sleeps with her buddy - soft toy giraffe.

We started Sophie on solid food around 4 1/2 months: rice cereal> avocado> oatmeal> apple sauce> butternut squash> pear sauce> carrots> kabocha squash - she likes them all :) She loves to eat! We'll try yam next. Other suggestions?

As for us, we're enjoying parenthood. Sophie is our pride and joy. Doesn't matter if we had a stressful day at work. As soon as we walk through the door and see our sunshine smiling/laughing and kicking her feet, everything is forgotten! She is growing up so fast right in front of our eyes. We thank the Lord everyday for giving us such a cutie pie :)
