Chloe: 6 Months Old

Can you guys even believe that Chloe is 6 months old now?! Here is the latest on her growth and development:

Size:

  • 16.8 lbs
  • 26 inches long
  • 9 month clothes fit best
  • Size 3 diapers
  • Measuring in the 80th percentile for both height and weight

Temperament:

Chloe is trying to express herself by making noises and facial expressions. She’s getting really aware and curious of her surroundings. We can tell she is still in pain with some teeth coming soon- some days we really rely on Tylenol and baby Oragel to calm her down. She’s typically very playful and happy but some days she is just sad.

Latest Skills:

  • Rolls around anywhere she wants to go
  • Does back bends and scoots around on her back
  • Increased hand eye coordination- can grab almost anything she wants to
  • Mimicking our sounds- says “mama”
  • Smacks her lips
  • Sitting on her own for a few seconds at a time
  • Stands holding onto something for a few seconds at a time
  • Recognizes familiar faces, and responds with a smile
  • Smiles at herself in a mirror
  • Makes high pitched screeching noise when excited
  • Brings everything to her mouth (can put in her own binkie, hooray!)
  • “jumps/ bounces” when held in a standing position
  • She giggles when tickled and when we play “peek a boo”

Eating:

  • mostly breastfeeding
  • we are slowly introducing solids about 3x weekly
  • has tried little bites of carrots, avocado, rice cereal, and banana
  • has learned to hold and “dip” her spoon

Sleeping:

  • Down to two naps a day; typically one at 10a and one at 2p
  • Each nap is usually at least 1 hour and can last up to 3
  • Goes down to sleep for the night around 7:30p or 8p
  • Usually only wakes up once at night for feeding
  • Sleeps in her own crib now- we put the bassinet away
  • Her go-to sleep position is on her face- she will roll over on her stomach if we put her down any other way.

Milestones:

  • First halloween & pumpkin patch
  • Has tried solid foods

Current Favorites:

  • Carrots
  • Tiny whisk
  • Bouncing
  • Watching Koda
