6 Months Old
This month has been interesting as far as her mood! She has been the most easy, laid back baby we have had and thats saying a lot because all of my kids are pretty easy going. This month was a much different story! She cried non stop for a good couple hours one week (once for me, once for Brett and once for Kristen) so I decided to take her to the doctor. They could not find anything wrong with her. This kept up most of break and into January. I waited until her 6 month check up to rule out an ear infection. Dr. Vansickle said that she had the best looking ears all day I have not started to wonder if its because she is not getting enough the drink. Since I am still breastfeeding I never know how much she is getting and I have felt like my milk supply has been up and down. Dr. Vansickle did remind me that even a little breast milk is beneficial so the last couple days I have been supplementing with formula after I feed her. It can be a pain but I will say her temperament has been much better!
At her 6 month check up she was 25 1/4 inches long (50%) and 16 lbs 11 oz (50-75%) and 16 3/4 inches in her head (50%). She is much more proportionate than her brother and sister were. They were always 90% in height and weight and 20% in the head. She is our little peanut and I love that she gets a little more wear out of her clothes before going to the next size!
Amaya has started to find her voice, but, a little different than most babies I would say. She blows raspberries all the time and has just started this squawk, it sounds like a pterodactyl! I call her my little dinosaur! Its so funny. I keep saying consonant sounds at her and she just smiles and squawks back! It is quite funny!
I must also add that her pictures look a little funny this month because about a week before Amaya turned 6 months old Ahnie thought it was a good idea to get our Amaya's stickers. Well she ripped the 6 months and the sticky part was almost gone when I found her. She felt very bad! I didn't bring it up again and when I told Ahnie that Amaya was 6 months old she quickly ran over to her and said "I sorry Mya about your stickers!" Mya did have lots of fun playing with the sticker this month though!
