Six Months Old!

Happy half birthday to my baby girl! It's amazing that you've been with us for 6 months already!

Cassandra is still in size 2 diapers for the day and size 3 for overnight. She's still wearing mostly 3 month clothes believe it or not! She wears some 6 month stuff, but some of it hangs on her because it's so big!

She nurses every 2.5-3 hours during the day and is incredibly nosy! She's a very distracted eater these days!

Cassandra is still an early bird for bed-she's ready to go down around 7-usually she's asleep by 7:30-8pm once I get her in jammies and feed her. She sleeps about 11-12 hours overnight waking up usually once to eat (sometimes twice).

Cassandra still naps well. She does a morning nap about 2 hours after waking up in the morning. Then she'll do an afternoon nap 2 hours after waking from the morning nap. Some days she'll take a third nap around 5pm that's really short-a half hour or so, just to get her through until bedtime. I have noticed that she's harder to put down at times lately-she'll wake up when she hits the crib and then will fuss for awhile. She eventually falls asleep, but sometimes it takes awhile.

New things for this month....she went in her exersaucer for the first time and really enjoys it! I realized the other day how infrequently she goes in the swing. Avery lived in her swing it seemed-although that's where she liked to nap. Cass really doesn't care for the swing so she hardly goes in it anymore!  Cassandra has started to notice Jerri the cat lately and gets SO excited to see her! It's the cutest thing! As soon as the cat walks by, she stiffens up, kicks her legs and squeals with excitement! She can hold her bottle by herself now, but can't quite lift it up really high yet. She loves her feet now-she puts them in her mouth all of the time. She really is such a happy baby and laughs and smiles so much-I just love it!

Here's the "birthday" girl's pics:

Yes folks, she does have a neck!!

Proud big sis!

And for fun, here are Avery's 6 month pics! (Wow, I just noticed how huge Avery looks-she looks like a giant compared to Cassandra!)
