1/2 year old
How did this even happen already?!? My baby is already 6 months old and I can't even believe it. Someone should really warn you that this time goes by so quickly, oh wait everyone did I just didn't believe them haha. It feels like I was just in the hospital welcoming my little baby bean and now here she is working on hitting those monthly milestones and growing up so fast that I can barely keep up. Every time I wake up and look at her she changed a little over night, grew a little more, discovered something new, made a new sound, grew some more hair haha. What an amazing feeling being able to watching a little tiny human grow and discover the world.
What is Harlyn up to:
So far she has been working on perfecting her sitting up skills, she is still a little wobbly but is getting better day by day and hopefully in the next couple of weeks she can be free to sit and play without timbering over sideways. She can roll from front to back and back to front, although she still dislikes being on her tummy for long periods of time. When she is on her tummy she is moving around a lot, not quite scooting yet but getting there. She will be mobile before we know it and then we are in BIG trouble.
Solid foods are working its way into our daily routine more and more. We started solids around 5 months since Harlyn seemed very interested in what were were eating. So far she has had yams, banana, avocado, peas, apples and pears. Her favorite is definitely yams, she is like her momma and can eat potatoes all day every day.
Different sounds are being babbled every day as well as new discoveries like her fingers and toes and tongue. Harlyn is using her hands more and more to grab things that she wants and playing with cause and effect. Her current favorite is putting her paci in her mouth and then taking it out, over and over and over. She is also biting everything, more like mouthing everything because we are patiently waiting for those little tiny teeth to poke through.
These are just a few spectacular things Harlyn is learning to do and we can't wait to see what else she discovers next.
Here's a little throwback to Harlyn at 2 weeks old.
