Six months old…already?!

Our sweet little Keira Joy will be 6 months old on the 20th. These past few months have really flown by, it’s crazy how fast it seems when you look back, especially with little ones.

Keira is a great eater and sleeper. I’m so thankful I’m able to still be breastfeeding her. This time around I’ve been more conscious of drinking a lot more water, which I think was one of the problems I had with Violet. Soon I will be starting her on solids. No teeth yet either.

She is a very happy baby! She loves being talked to and she really loves her sister, who really likes playing with her and keeps her entertained. Keira is always rolling everywhere. For nap time, I tuck her in like a little burrito so she doesn’t roll on her belly, which she doesn’t like for sleeping yet. She does well with strangers holding her. I thought for a bit she didn’t like strangers, when we were at the doctors office she would cry if someone there held her, but I think it might have been she was really tired those times.

She is always reaching out for things and when she gets it, she brings it right to her mouth. She likes grabbing at people’s faces and hair. It’s all just so interesting to her right now. And she thinks it’s funny when we clap.

We’re so thankful to have this happy little girl who bring such joy into our lives everyday!

Keira…

…is already over 4 months old! She brings us so much happiness every day with all her smiles and giggles. Right now, she does really good at rolling from her belly to back and has been trying really hard lately to roll from her back to belly. It seems like she will be getting some teeth soon, with all of her slobbering and putting her fingers in her mouth. She even likes sucking her thumb, just like her sister. She is grabbing at things a lot more now and wants to sit up, but not quite by herself yet. She is a great eater and sleeper too. Can’t you tell by those chipmunk cheeks? Our friends here are always commenting how much they like her chubby cheeks. She’s been sleeping through the night for a while now, sleeping from around 8 or 9 pm to around 8 am. I think by this time with Violet, I had started her on some solid foods. But I’m more hesitant this time around, just because I’m not sure if that’s what caused my milk to stop last time. She is definitely getting satisfied, so I’ll just see how it goes. I’m not sure how much she weighs right now, but she will soon have another doctors appointment where we will find out.

And Happy Birthday (a day late) to our nephew Tylan. We get to see him and talk to him on skype every once in a while and we see that he is getting to be such a big kid!! But this is the Ty I remember…

Happy Birthday Ty!! We love you!
