Enna turned 6 months last week. Someone needs to tell her to stop growing and moving and to just relax for a minute while I catch up.
Weight: 18 lbs, 2 ounces (90%)
Height: 26" (50-75%)
Head Circumference: 44 cm (75-90%)
At 6 months Enna is:
- Done with her swaddle. For weeks she was spending considerable amounts of time at night and naps trying to break out of the swaddle, which was not at all frustrating (cue the sarcasm.) She was getting pretty adept, because she is nothing if not smart and determined. Once free, she would FLIP onto her stomach and swim in place, squawking until I picked her up. Which sounds adorable until it happens multiple times in the middle of the night. So, we abandoned the swaddle and so far, her sleep has not be affected. Phew. And yeah! We have introduced her to the joy of stomach sleeping.
- Wants to be mobile but is very much not. No crawling or getting on hands and knees yet. She has attempted to push herself forward a bit with her toes, but understandably has not see much success with that maneuver. She contents herself with being carried everywhere via the Ergo.
- Sitting up! But not for long durations. If she lists to one side, she eventually topples over.
- Squawking and or screaming. She has picked up on Finn's screams of ultimate suffering (which are an hourly occurrence some days) and now thinks that loud, piercing sounds are an acceptable mode of communication. Somehow, she doesn't find whispering to be interesting enough to imitate. And that, my friends, is the difference between first and second children.
