Happy 6 Month, Jillian Kate!

Jillian turned 6 months old 3 weeks ago! Ha! Better late than never on the monthly post! :) Thought I should probably get it posted before she turns 7 months old at the end of next week!
Love these sweet faces!
She found her belly! :)
We had a hard time keeping her from grabbing her cake! I love this look she is giving Josh. Pretty sure she couldn’t believe he was telling her no! :)
Trying so hard to get it!
She worked so hard to get to it again!
I LOVE this picture! It looks like she is just so upset and finally gave-up! Little cutie!
  • You are wearing 3-6 month clothes and size 1-2 or 2 diapers.
  • You weigh 14lbs 12oz (25th percentile) and you are 26 inches long (50th percentile). You are so petite and it is SO darn cute!
  • You are still sleeping 11 hours a night. You usually go to sleep around 8pm and wake-up at 7am.
  • You are on a great little schedule. You like to go back to sleep after you nurse at 7 and will sometimes sleep until 9. You have some solids when you wake-up. Usually apple sauce and rice cereal. Then you nurse again at 10 and take a short morning nap that lasts about an hour. You eat again at 1pm and then go right to sleep until about 3:30. You nurse again at 4pm and then eat solids around 6pm. You nurse again around 7pm and then go to bed.
  • You are still nursing so well! We rarely give you a bottle (probably one every couple of weeks) because it’s easier for me to nurse! You take bottles really well if we need you to take one.
  • We started solids a few days before you turned 6 months old. You are eating them 2 times a day. Once in the morning and once in the evenings.
  • You have tried applesauce, peaches, bananas and sweet potatoes. You didn’t like the texture of bananas but we will try them again soon! You look so big and so little when you sit in a high chair to eat.
  • You are sitting-up really well!
  • You roll all over the place. You are always in a different place in your crib each time we go to check on you!
  • You say, “dada” all the time. You also say, “baba” and will occasionally say, “mama”. Your little voice is so sweet! Sometimes you sound hoarse and it is the cutest little thing.
  • You are a really quiet baby unless you have just eaten and then you jabber a lot, but you mainly just look around and smile and take things in. If Brody starts to bother you and you don’t like it, you get pretty loud! I have no idea what you are saying to him but you let him have it. It’s hilarious!
  • You got your first tooth this month! I’m not ready for you to lose your gummy grin.
  • You put everything in your mouth! Anything you get your hands on goes straight in your mouth.
  • You still love your exersaucer. You would sit in it all day if we let you. They have told us in the church nursery that you love it there, too!
  • You will not keep shoes or socks on your feet and you like to pull your headbands and hairbows over your eyes. Then you scream when you can’t see! It’s a vicious cycle! :)
  • People comment on how happy and easy you are. You really are a great baby.
  • You and Brody continue to interact more and more each month. You love to pat his head and face. He loves when you do that, too!
  • We cannot believe you have only been in our family for 6 months! It feels like we have loved you forever!
  • We LOVE you!!!!!!!
Here is a picture of Jillian at 6 months and Brody at 6 months!

Jennifer, Jillian so SO PRECIOUS!! I remember wondering what she would be like when you were pregnant, and she is just so darn cute! You really should write a book or have a seminar or something...your babies are so good! :)

Hi! Not sure if you remember because I have YET to update my blog since having my little princess but mine was born a day after Jillian and she had her 6 month check up last week & weighed the EXACT same amount as Jillian, 14lbs, 12 oz, but a little shorter at 25 1/2 inches!! Don't you just love how sweet & petite they are! It is so awesome to watch your little ones grow! Jillian is so precious!! I LOVE all the little outfits you always have her in!

Jillian is just as beautiful and precious as they come. She is definitely a petite little "princess". Love the way she looks at her Daddy.....doesn't have him wrapped to tight, does she (ha,ha)? Both of your children are sweet as can be. You are truly blessed.
