Baby C: 6 Months

Half a year. Half a year Baby C has been with us. I think I say this every month, but it's CRAZY how quickly this is going!

Personality: Such a happy baby! So smiley! She's mostly super sweet and relaxed, though she's also starting to voice her dislikes more.

Likes: Her hands. She is obsessed with her hands this month. She can reach out and grab what she wants and thinks it's awesome (until she thinks it's not awesome, then she just screams because she hasn't mastered letting go yet, ha!). Baby C also likes sitting up in her Bumbo or high chair so she can see what we're up to. Her sweet little baby laugh is the best. She giggles when I kiss her perfect little cheeks or tickle her neck. I can't get enough of it! E says the smiles and laughs are his favorite right now. She loves when Daddy tips her upside down. I should also mention she started rolling from her tummy to her back this month.

Dislikes: Socks. Not just socks, but anything on her feet. I've seen her get her feet out between the snaps on her jammies. It's winter in Minnesota. Feet need to be covered (or I get comments from older ladies who see me with a baby with bare feet). Baby C will not go to sleep laying flat. Not great, but I know she won't be in her swing forever.

Sleeping: For the most part sleeping is much better, but it's sporadic. Some nights she sleeps long stretches, other nights not so much. She's gotten in the (bad) habit of waking up for the first time between 11:30pm and 12am, which always seems to be an hour or so after I feel asleep. Hopefully we can get that first wake up pushed back to 2:30am or later soon. During the day she takes a bunch of shorter naps at different times, but consistently takes a nice, long afternoon nap. Love that! Now if only her sisters could do the same.

Eating: Still eating well and about every 3 hours. We'll be starting solid foods soon!

Nicknames: C-bot, C note, baby baby, baby bot, kitty cat
