I’m a day late posting Charlotte’s six month milestone but so goes life with a 6-month-old baby, right? She had a checkup with the pediatrician yesterday which means more shots. It turned into a rough day for baby and mama. Anyway, she’s back to her usual happy self today. Her playtime of choice right now is crawling after Prissy (yes, crawling). She’s a lively one! Her pediatrician agrees. When I told him she started crawling, he looked at me and said, “I’m sorry, you were suppose to have three more months before she turned mobile.” Great! Baby proofing the house ASAP. Also, she has attempted to get to Prissy’s dog food one too many times. Things are definitely changing at the Mellor home. I’m officially claiming to be a mother of two now that I have to watch both of them at all times! We were able to capture one of Charlotte’s first “crawls” on video a little over a week ago (posted below).
As far as other Charlotte updates at six months, she’s in the 90th percentile for height and head circumference and in the 73rd percentile for weight. So I guess that means she’s going to be tall with a large brain? Sounds good to me! She now has two bottom teeth and is eating some solids. We gave her sweet potatoes for the first time on her six month birthday. She wasn’t crazy about it. I think she would’ve preferred a cake. The video is below. Also, I should note she’s sleeping from 7 to 7 with 3 naps a day. This makes for a very happy Charlotte and mama!
The last six months have been the most delightful and challenging months of my life! It’s hard to imagine life before Charlotte. And to think where she will be in another six months… I’m sure she will be even more beautiful and we will be even more in love. Happy six months baby Charlotte. We love you!
