6 Months

Today Rylie is 6 months old! I can hardly believe it’s been half of a year… Here are some highlights from her sixth month:

  • Still loves to smile and laugh at everyone.
  • Giggles when tickled.
  • Started babbling, combining consonants and vowels like “mama” (yay!), “baba”, “gaga”, and “yaya”.
  • Can sit up unassisted.
  • Loves to sit on the floor and play with her toys.
  • Rolls around to get where she wants to be.
  • Can push herself up on her hands into a half crawling position (still doesn’t get up onto knees).
  • No longer sleeps swaddled at night.
  • Prefers to sleep on belly or side.
  • Started eating real food! (More on that in another post)

Rylie visited the Dr. for her 6-month checkup and shots. Here are her stats:

Weight: 15 lbs 10.5 oz (43%)
Height: 26 1/4 in (70%)

For comparison, these are her stats from her 4 month appointment:

Weight: 13 lbs 11.1 oz (56%)
Height: 25 1/2 in (92%)

Her 2 month appointment:

Weight: 11 lbs 4.2 oz (62%)
Height: 22 3/4 in (66%)

Her 2 week appointment:

Weight: 8 lbs 6.3 oz (53%)
Height: 19 1/2 in (20%)

And at birth:

Weight: 6 lbs 11 oz
Height: 19 in

Each month on the 10th I am taking pictures of Rylie in a onesie with a Picky Sticky sticker. It will be fun to look back at them and see how she grows!
