Hadley: 6 months


We have our doctors appointment Friday and I will update this post then. My guess today is around 20 pounds and maybe 28 or 29 inches? Eeeek! So big!

Finishing up a few size 2 and moving on to size 3!


You are still in 6 months for most outfits but I'm starting to add in some 9 months here and there. I've noticed that if there's a pair of pants that you've worn a lot (meaning we've washed them a lot) then they definitely are not long enough anymore. You have long legs, like your daddy! Tonight I put 9 month pjs on you (all of your 6 months were in the wash) and they were quite big! I was happy to see that you haven't quite made it that far. I love my little peanut!


You continue to do very well in the food department. You are still taking a bottle (4-6 oz) three times a day and nursing in the morning (sometimes), evening, and right before bed. You get apples in the morning and either carrots, sweet potatoes, squash, or peas in the afternoon. We (mommy, daddy, or jenna) mix both with some cereal. You love apples and your favorite vegetable is carrots. We will slowly keep introducing you to new foods and then the sippy cup...eeek!


After being in the hospital overnight, your sleep schedule was off for a little over a week. It was (and still is a little) rough. I'm still not caught up on sleep. But you are getting better. A few days after we got home, you were waking up five to six times a night. It was horrible. Now we are back to once. Last night you slept through the entire night--11 hours!! I might have gone in to see if you were breathing. It was amazing to sleep longer than a six hour time frame and I was so proud of you! I'm hoping it sticks! Such a great way to ring in your half birthday!

Other Events

You had your first hospital stay--super scary. So thankful it is over!

You are now sitting up on your own! We still watch you but you're doing very well.

You are still talking a lot and will look at us in the eyes when you do. It's so sweet!

You love Sesame Street. You still enjoy listening to That's Cooperation, Elmo the Musical (President), and Sesame Street Alphabet. One day you were really upset so I was getting ready to turn on That's Cooperation. When I turned the tv on, Sponge Bob was showing on Nickelodeon. You were amazed. I hate to say that you love Sponge Bob, but you really do. You will laugh and make happy screams. I think it's all of the colors and movement that get your attention. However, when you start to understand what is going on, you will no longer be allowed to watch it--sorry! 

You sat in the cart for the first time two weeks ago at Target. You love it and were (happy) screaming through the aisles!

You still love to bounce in the bouncy seat.

Your favorite toys are the green ball, Sophie, and Violet (the talking dog).

You love Wembley and Oliver...especially Wembley. We're making sure to use the word "nice" as much as we can so you can start understanding it.

You're starting to put your hands out and reaching for us to hold you. It's adorable!

You haven't been sucking your thumb anymore and over the past week haven't really wanted your binkie. But before that you wanted your bink all the time. Not sure what is going on with this phase...

Your feet are still one of your favorite toys (as you can see in one of your pictures above) and you are holding on to them almost every time you are laying on the ground.

Tummy time is still not your friend and you're still not rolling over. It will come.

Your personality is so funny! You get embarrassed easily and put your head on my shoulder when you feel shy.

You're super happy in the mornings and when you're not happy we know you didn't get enough sleep.

Mommy and daddy have been very busy with work lately but you've done so well for us at home and have been adjusting to our busy schedule. I try to leave work very shortly after the bell rings so I can spend as much time as possible with you.

We cannot wait until the weather warms up so we can start taking walks outside!

I can't believe you're six months old already. While the time feels as though it flew by, it also feels like you have been a part of our family forever. Sometimes I think about life before you and sometimes your daddy and I will talk about it. We're amazed at how busy we thought we were and how we thought our lives were so fulfilling. But since you have been in our life, we feel our hearts are completely full. You are such a joy! I am sad to put you to bed every night and so excited to wake you up!

We love you more than we can put into words!
Happy half birthday my Haddie girl!
