Adalyn is an amazing eater and opens her mouth when she sees the food coming her way and can eat a good amount at once (2-3 oz maybe). We are doing mostly purees so far but have given her a couple pieces of whole foods to suck/bite on: steamed broccoli, red pepper, prune.
Foods that she has had: green beans, sweet potato, avocado, grapefruit/lemon/orange (I know we were supposed to wait on citrus...), peas, applesauce, apple, oatmeal, plum, pear, zucchini, celery, potato, broccoli, prune, and kale. I am such a proud dietitian Mamma because her favorite food is kale. She eats more kale than any other food in one sitting.
While I am at work, she eats 2-3 pumped bottles of 5-6 oz of milk. Also, she is still on 1 ml of Zantac twice per day. She still spits up quite a bit which I am going to talk to the doctor about at her 6 month appointment.
Sleep: Bedtime is 7-7:15 PM each night. Falling asleep is often hard for Adalyn and we often have to go check on her and comfort her 2-4 or more times. She is not one of those babies that falls asleep in a couple of minutes- even if she is super tired.
Bedtime routine changed in the last week: We do diaper change, meds, Baby Merlin Magic Sleepsuit, breastfeed, Wubbanub pacifier and bed. Yes, this means that for bedtime, we are no longer doing a swaddle!! Since we started the Baby Merlin Magic Sleepsuit 1 week ago, Adalyn has slept through the night 5 out of 8 nights (7-6 AM about)!! Troy randomly wanted to try the sleepsuit instead of the swaddle and I was so nervous because she loves her Halo swaddle but it was a good change, especially as she is 6 months old.
Adalyn is napping 3 times per day for 3 minutes to every-so-often 1 1/2 hours. The eat, play, sleep cycle is working well for us. We are still using the Halo swaddle for some naps as it helps her relax. It is usually difficult to get her to nap- she is very resistant.
-Continues to smile and laugh like crazy. Standing really well with limited support. Grabbing everything- including my hair, plate of food, coffee cup, everything haha. Continues to roll over from stomach to back. Loves looking in the mirror at herself. Can hold herself up for tummy time for about 30 minutes. Talking so much. Loves her hands. Still kicking everything.
-She is doing "planks" as we call them where she holds her entire body up.
-She can scoot herself all around when she is on tummy time. I will put her on one spot on the mat and look over and she has moved backwards 3 feet.
-She sat in the big part of the stroller a couple times this month instead of just in the car seat.
-Went in the swing at the park for the first time this month.
-Pets the dogs so well. When they walk by, she loves staring at them. See the picture above- this is my life- dog licking baby wearing a vest : )
-Loves taking baths with mom! (I love it too!).
-Went sledding for the first time and loved it!
-She loves touching my Busia's (Grandma) face- not sure why her specifically but it is adorable!
-Her feet are better than any toy she has- she loves trying to put them in her mouth, holding them, etc.
-She can grab and reach for toys. When you take an object away from her, she cries.
-Knows her name when you call it
Boba Carrier and her Graco jogging stroller.
-Does "crunches" where she is laying on her back and picks her head up
-Can grab her Wubbanub and put it back in her mouth.
