Baby Nora: 6 Months

Well, there are only three days left until Nora is 7 months so I decided I should finally post the 6 month update that has been sitting in my draft posts for a couple weeks now. This month has been a whirlwind as we moved again! ...Don't worry, we're still in Nashville this time. We moved to a house in Franklin that I hope we will call home for a while.  

It was fun to read and finish this post because so much has changed in the last month. I'll save that for next week though :).

Also I slacked on photos this month... 

She will probably be upset about this one someday :).

Weight: Nora weighed 16 pounds at her 6 month appointment. I can't remember her length, but she is following right along the same growth percentiles (50th for weight & head and 75th for height). She has outgrown some of her 3-6 month clothes so she's wearing a mix of 6 month and 9 month now.

Activities: Sitting, standing, rolling - anything other than lying on her tummy or back for more than a minute! Nora's first word was 'da-da'. She repeats it over and over and over again, and it's fun to hear her say "daddy," even if she doesn't associate it with Matt just yet. 

Food: Nora is nursing about 7 times a day and has only had apples. Since her high chair has arrived, we plan to let her experiment with food this month! Next month, I am certain Nora will have at least one tooth! The bottom teeth are so close, and I can feel bumps along her top gumline also.

Sleep: Our nightly routine begins around 7. In the past, I have been unaware of growth spurts, but this time she certainly let us know, waking up FOUR times per night for a few nights! After those nights she resumed to her normal self, sleeping about 9 hours and waking up around 4 or 5 to nurse, then going back to sleep for a couple more hours.

Social: After Easter Nora started going to the nursery at church. She was having so much fun the first week that I actually left her about 15 extra minutes because I didn't to take her away.

The rest of the photos were taken about a week before the 6 month mark. Nora did not want to look at the camera, but I'm still glad we have a few shots of the three of us. 

I'll be back with more updates very soon :).
