Elizabeth’s First 6 Months

This post is a combination of Elizabeth’s first 6 month photo updates which I shared on other forms of social media as they came.  From here out I will post them at their appropriate times to help keep you all up to date on this crazy little human.

Elizabeth is 1 month old today.  This month has gone by so quickly!  She has grown so much and learned so many new skills.  Her favorite things are tummy time (she always falls asleep), cuddling, and our sofa blanket.  She dislikes dog kisses and being left alone.  She has learned how to hold her head up to look around and mimic facial expressions.

Today Elizabeth is 2 months old! She sleeps very well swaddled in her bassinet at night. She is finally used to her car seat and car rides.  She loves rolling over and being carried in the ergo, and enjoys chewing on her strawberry teether. She likes Oscar kisses and sometimes “pets” (kind of more like a slap) him when he’s near. She’s wearing medium diapers!

Elizabeth is 3 months old today! As of today she is a professional thumb sucker, she sleeps through the night, laughs, and blows raspberries. She has also begun teething. This past month she moved from California to North Carolina and traveled like a champ. She has now been to 9 states!

This little turkey turned 4 months old this month. She can roll over both ways and loves to stand up on laps. Sometimes she can sit on her own. She has found her feet and laughs all of the time! Elizabeth gets really frustrated during tummy time because she wants to crawl so badly, and at her 4 month check up she was 14 lbs and 24.25″ long.

Today Elizabeth is 5 months old! This month she enjoyed sucking on her feet (yum!) and learned to sit up! She loves to grab everything within reach and enjoys rocking forward and backward while sitting and when she is in her exersaucer.  Elizabeth loves Oscar and Charlie so much that their kisses will stop her from crying, and she has now been to 18 states! She has a full head of super light blonde hair, and her eyes are still gray.

This little nugget is 6 whole months today! She is a half year old! At 6 months she enjoys bouncing in her jumper, wiggling around the living room, and cuddling. She is getting better about being in her car seat (having a convertible helped), and her favorite food is pears! She is super ticklish just about everywhere. Elizabeth finally naps during the days but is still up at least 3 times a night. She dislikes being left alone, and will speak constantly as she’s being read to.  At her 6 month check up she was 16 lbs 2 oz and is 26″ long.

❤ I cannot get enough of this little girl, and I’m so happy to be able to introduce  her to you even though it is long overdue.  Over the next few days and weeks I will be doing catch-up posts concerning life since she was born.
