Ella - 6 Months!

My little darling, you are now 6 months old! Seriously, how the heck did that happen?! You have grown so much over the past 6 months, Daddy and I really can’t believe it.  It’s funny how much I forgot about the newborn stages.

You actually really enjoy being on your tummy and you like to watch morning cartoons with Brayden that way, you are scooting your little butt and moving your legs so much it looks like you already want to take off! I would prefer if you slowed down J

You have been on a hypoallergenic formula for a couple of weeks now and things are much better – you do not have any more blood in your stool (YAY!!!) So we are taking the dr’s orders and keeping you on this formula.  I am sad that you won’t be getting breastmilk anymore but I am doing what is best for both of us. 

You are happy pretty much all of the time now (except at night – he he) When I get home from work, you give me the biggest smiles and that makes me so incredibly happy.  All we have to do is look at you and you are just all smiles.  You are talking a little, mostly goo goo ga ga’s and I’ve only heard you laugh one more time since the first time.

You LOVE bath time and always have! This is much different from big brother.  You can be in the worst mood but once we put you in the tub you are back to your happy self. 

The Dr. says you are ready to eat food (this makes me nervous and excited at the same time!) so Mommy is going to start building up a supply of homemade baby food - more to come on this once you start eating J

Your 6 month stats are as follows:

Head:  41.5cm
Weight:11lbs 12.5oz
Height: 24.5in

You have lost a little weight from the last time we were there so the Dr. has us increasing your milk intake and by adding the food hopefully you can pack on some lbs soon J

You are so beautiful Little Miss and I love you so so much!
