6 Months with Baby #3

And in a blink of an eye, we have pasted the 6-month mark! Every time I sit down to write these monthly letters it always blows me away on how fast time seems to pass.

The other things that always gets me, is how much you continue to grow and change even within these first few months.

You are now rolling both ways, front to back and back to front. This has been great as you seem to love the ability to control how you spend your time on the floor. The only downside about this is that it freaks me out a little because when you are rolling from being on your tummy going to your back; it always looks like you are going to break your bottom arm, due to how far you seem to bend it! I have to hold myself back to running and helping you every time and give you a chance to figure it out yourself. And low and behold you always work it out and will roll over with no problems, so I guess I need to have a little more faith! 

This last month you toys have become your favourite thing! You have shocked me a few times on how excited you get after I have given you a toy! You just seem to find such joy in the bright colour or the delightful sounds they often make. And of course, at this stage of life, everything goes straight into your mouth! So the better you are able to chomp down on a toy the more of a favourite that toy seems to become!

And the fact that toys are entertaining you more has given your sisters another way to play with you! They are so good and enjoy fetching your toys over and over again as you learn about gravity and its effect on your toys. Thank goodness cause I can only play that game for so long!

Speaking of your sisters, I swear they love you more and more with each passing day! They are so good at helping cheers you up or keeping you entertained or grab things for you. Sometimes I worry that they show their love a little too strongly but you just seem to soak it all in! You love it when they act silly and will show your delight by laughing and laughing! This, of course, encourages them to act even sillier and you just love it! They are always able to get really good belly laughs from you, I just love watching you three play!

On the sleep front, we are still doing well. At night you now consistently only waking once or twice, which I'm fine with.

And you are taking longer naps now, which have improved your mood greatly during the day. The only thing that is hard is that because you have two busy older sisters, you often don't get a really good morning nap because we are often out of the house.  Sadly I'm not too sure what to do about that because I can't eliminate those activities or outings. Luckily you are pretty good at falling asleep in the car so you do get a few little cat naps, which I guess is better than nothing. What I do try is make sure that we are home in the afternoon so you get at least one good nap a day. 

Your love of solid food is also growing more and more, and the reason I know this is because when I'm feeding you will often give little grunts indicating you need more food in your mouth! I need to get in on video because I find it hilarious! And oh so cute! I feel like you might start eating us out of house and home before your first birthday!

I know that you do have your grumpy moments from time to time but we are so happy and blessed to have you in our lives. You have been with us for only 6 months and yet so quickly you have become irreplaceable. 

We love you so much and look forward to spending much more time with you!
