Getting so big

Pear’s now 6 months! (official day was December 6th) At times I wasn’t sure if I’d make it to 6 months (if only they could come out at 6 months old life would sure be a lot easier). But then of course I would miss tiny baby stage that lasted all of two weeks with Pear. I still can’t believe she was only 6lbs 14oz at birth-thank God, and she had a tiny head (which I can thank my husband for-and I did!). I have to say though thinking back the time went by fast and now we’re getting the hang of this mom and baby thing. Truthfully, I wasn’t sure if I was cut out for being a mom but have had a complete turn around and now can’t imagine life without Pear. We created something pretty great here, my best work of art yet!

It will probably all change tomorrow but for now we’re doing great. Naps are good, night sleeping is good, she has even stopped waking 45 minutes after I put her down at night! YES! We are working on getting out of the swaddle blanket. Usually when I put her down with one arm out of the swaddle by the time the nap is over I will find a huge scratch mark or her eye will be red from rubbing it so much.

She weighed in at 18.1lbs and is 27 1/4″ long. 75% for weight and 95% for height. She had to get shots today. I hate when she gets shots, I can’t imagine how she feels about them. Well, I guess I kind of know since she lets out some good cries (who wouldn’t?). She looks at me with eyes full of crocodile tears and I can’t help but wonder if she is saying “make it stop, mom”. It hurts. I hate shot day. The only good thing (well, besides that fact that we are protecting her from lots of diseases) is she usually takes a nice long nap afterwards. She must be wiped out from her traumatic experience.

So happy 6 month birthday, Pear. I Love you!

    Isn’t it crazy how quickly it all goes by? My youngest turned 1 last month, and I can hardly believe it still. He’s walking around now, and I still find myself thinking of him as an infant. Crazy.

    Great pics, by the way.

    Aww, happy 6 months, Pear! (You can add me to your list of readers. I love a good mommy blog.) By the way, the whole “what a cute little boy you have” when your daughter is decked out in pink from head to toe? That’s one of my biggest pet peeves. I’m STILL trying to think of a snappy retort to the obviously visually-challenged people who say that about my little Coco. Annoying.

  4. Happy Birthday Pear… what a cutie! I think I’m all caught up on your blog now. I love mommyblogs, and this one’s perfect, cause I’m expecting a little girl soon. By the way, I swaddled my son, til he was about 5 months, it was a huge transition to get him out of it… even though he always freed himself of the swaddle, he didn’t sleep as well (for the first few days), after we stopped.
