Ashlyn at 6 Months

Weight: 17.1 lbs - 75%
Height: 27 inches - 95%
BMI: 16.42 - 30%
Head Circ.: 17 Inches - 70%

Six months is one of my favorite ages! Ashlyn's personality has just blossomed so much more in the last couple of weeks. She loves nothing more than just to sit up and watch Clara play while she sucks on a toy. She doesn't like to lay down very often, except to go to sleep. She has rolled over several times, but she just doesn't seem to have the desire, which I'm fine with, it's easier on me! :) While I was at the doctor I mentioned that Ashlyn has been saying dada, gaga, and baba a lot. He said "Wow, you've got yourself a little linguist, huh?" He said that that usually doesn't happen until about 9 months. I'm sure it happens much more than what he made it sound. Doctors know that moms like to hear how smart and advanced their baby is!

Sleep was pretty bad for a while, but about three weeks ago I put Ashlyn downstairs in her Pack N' Play and let her cry for a little while before she went to sleep. Now she will usually sleep about 10 or 11 hours, but will sometimes wake up once in the middle of the night. I try to let her cry for a little bit before I go check on her, but I get nervous having her so far away. Before we started doing this, she was waking up every 2 to 3 hours and Clara was having a hard time falling to sleep because they were sharing a room.

Ashlyn is really such a good baby. She's pretty easy going and happy!

"Yuck, Mom. What is this?"

"Hmmm, I wonder if my next meal will be those yucky sweet potatoes, or yummy pears."
