Six Months Old!

 Finley is SIX months old!  I mean, half a year!  How did that happen so quickly?

Here is what Miss Finley Quinn is up to:
  • She weighs 17 pounds.  That was her official weight at the doctor last week when we went for her ear infection.
  • She has officially started solid foods - really, just rice cereal.  But she's getting used to the spoon, and she seems to like it, so I suppose we will be making quick work of getting to carrots and squash and sweet potatoes!
  • She's breast feeding about 7-8 times a day.  This includes at least one night feeding.
  • She fits in 6 to 9 month sizes.  I'm slowly packing away her little 3 month clothes (but I'm squeezing her into her 3 month sleepers for one more wear) .  It's a little heartbreaking!
  • She falls asleep on her own (once she's swaddled, with her music, with her blanket, AND with her pacifier).
  • One of the bigger, um, issues, that we've had with her is lots of constipation.  She went from late November to the end of February only pooping once a week!  Well, the ear infection coupled with the antibiotic really helped clear that up.  And now we've discovered that she really hates a dirty diaper.
  • Her schedule right now is usually waking up between 6 and 6:30, eating, playing, eating, going down for a nap after drop offs, waking up around 11, going to pick the kids up, eating, going back down around 1 and then sleeping until 3:30.  Then she eats, plays, eats solids, takes a bath, and then nurses before bed.  I usually put her down around 7. Daylight Savings will probably mess all that up!  
  • She is sitting up on her own  for short periods of time, so I usually prop the boppy up behind her.  She loves to sit around and rake in the toys that I put around her!  She really loves her sophie, her rattle, little blocks, and her soft cloth book!
  • She started saying "da-da-da-da-da-da" last month, and now I swear that she says "Hi! back to me when I say it to her!
  • Obviously she had her first ear infection.  I have no experience with a little one with an ear infection before (or anyone with an ear infection ever), so this was a bit of a new adventure.  A A not so fun one.
  • She still loves the Ergo.  She is super easy to take to stores and practices when I'm wearing her.
  • Her toes are in her mouth.  Constantly!
  • She LOVES Wyatt.  A lot.  I think his relationship with her is just precious.  He always wants to be there for her, and she really loves him.  It's a bit different than his relationship with Reesie!
And a few more of our baby girl this month!

Waiting for food.
They sit next to each other at the table.  This cracked me up!
She loves some food!
