6 Months of Being a Mommy

I honestly cannot believe that as of today, I've been a mom for 6 months. It seems so short, yet can't really remember life without Jayna either. We love our little munchkin so much and can't believe how much she's grown! In fact, she's gained 3 lbs in the last 4 1/2 weeks. She started wearing 3-6 month clothing about a month ago and is now already too long for them. We weighed her on our scale last night and it said exactly 15 lbs. I can't believe it! She's no longer small for her age :(, but :) at the same time.

  • She's starting to get a lot more dark hair in... we actually comb it for church now. Haha! 
  • She loves to sit up, but can't quite do it on her own yet. You'll see examples in our little "photo shoot". 
  • She's semi-consistently holding her own bottle. She's great until she gets tired. Haha! We're going to start her on cereal this next week; we've been trying to get her digestion figured out on formula first.
  • She is very mobile (on her back). She still doesn't really like rolling over because it ends her up on her tummy, but she still does it on occasion anyways.
  • She's obsessed with her hands and is constantly staring at them and wiggling them.
  • She's distracted by EVERYTHING... especially when she's eating or trying to nap.
  • She sleeps a minimum of 12 hours a night, which is so wonderful! However, she is not a napper. She's exactly like her mom and dad in this aspect. Neither Scott nor I like to nap... I guess she's an early learner. :)
  • She's very vocal - she loves doing the vocal "fry" (sorry, don't know how else to explain it. This is a vocal term though.) She loves squealing, spitting, and talking to herself. Scott says she's learned all of this from me, but in reality, I just copy her... or maybe it's all the voice lessons she sits in on ;).
I'm amazed as I look back to her newborn pictures how much she's grown and changed. The rest of this blog is going to be our little 6-month b-day photo shoot.

This is a picture of Jayna when she was 1 1/2 weeks old, so you have a comparison shot.

... And now...

 ...tipping over...

...unhappy that I'm taking her pic instead of feeding her...

... everything goes in the mouth (in case you didn't already notice)...

...Fell over again. This time onto the tummy and pulled the bow down on the way down...

... with mommy...

...and daddy...

I had to put this one in because they both get ridiculous red-eye with every picture! Jayna definitely has daddy's eyes (and everything else).

...This is how we normally look. Jayna gets my hair ALL the time and she's not easy on me!...

The best self-family portrait we could get.


  1. Oh my goodness, she is changing sooooo much! Please put a brick on her head and put her on hold until I get there. I won't Even know her.

    1. Haha! I think putting a brick on her head would constitute as child abuse, but I will gladly cuddle her and hope she doesn't start crawling soon ;).
