We’re halfway through Anwen’s first year – she is 6 months old. By Christmas she will be able to join in with Christmas dinner. 🙂 By Christmas she will be sitting up.
What are the changes this month?
Weight: She has to weigh over 25lb now. I’m having her weighed next week but I’m not overly worried about it. If the health visitor didn’t come to me I wouldn’t have a clue. Clothing Size: I have just started switching out the 6-9 months for the 9-12 months clothes. Shoe Size: Anwen still isn’t wearing shoes but she has big feet. Nappy Size: 5 (bigger than Enfys). Teeth: She has a 3rd tooth! It’s not the one I expected next but we have it. It’s to the left of the bottom 2. She has nothing where the top two teeth should be.
Attention: Anwen absolutely adores being talked to. She gets excited by the sound of her favourite voices. Singing: She really loves singing. Whether it’s nursery rhymes or songs she loves it. People: Anwen loves people. It’s a good thing honestly, given that she’s one of 5. She is at her happiest when the living room is full and everyone is around her. Sitting Up: She is getting so strong now and is almost sitting completely unaided. 🙂
Silence: Silence is one thing Anwen really hates! If it’s quiet something must be wrong. Tummy Time: Anwen hates being stuck on her tummy, it really does make her scream.
Bedtime: Between 6pm and 9pm (depending on how the day goes) Wake time: Between 6am and 8am. Naps: 1 long nap. We have recently dropped the shorter naps.
We haven’t actually gotten around to starting the weaning process yet. At the moment she has a great routine though. She generally has a 5 7-8oz bottles between waking and going to bed.
Exciting things this month
Anwen can now roll properly. Although can only do back to front.
