Our Dearest Stella,

Our sweet little giggle monster, you bring so much joy to our lives. You are so friendly and love everyone that you meet. You are such a content little girl; you love to just sit and play with your toys and watch Wyatt. We are pretty sure that your beautiful red hair is here to stay and we're super excited about it. Everyone always loves to point out how beautiful it is! It's so hard to believe that we're now closer to your first birthday than we are to your "birth"-day. We love you monster!
What you did this month:
  • You are weighing about 14 pounds and roughly 24 inches long.
  • You are wearing size 3/6M and 6M clothes. You wear size 6M and 6/9M in pajamas.
  • You are wearing size 2 diaper but we're going up to 3s on the next order.
  • You nurse every 2-3 hours during the day this month you were awake about every 2 hours at night.
  • You are napping much better this month. You take a morning nap around 9/10 for an hour to hour and a half. Then you take an afternoon nap around 1/2 for about 2 hours.
  • You go to bed around 7:30 at night and you don't really have a consistent sleep pattern. Sleep has been hit or miss this month. I've started using some essential oils to try and help.
  • You slept in your pack n' play for most of the month.
  • You're doing great at sitting up! When you're on the floor I still keep the Boppy around you, just in case.
  • You're still pretty lazy when it comes to rolling over. You'll lay on your side and stretch for things but never actually roll over. And you're still not crazy about being on your tummy.
  • You love eating food and really prefer to feed yourself. We've added pears, bananas, strawberries, squash, zucchini, spinach, and peaches to you list of foods. Oh, and chocolate!
  • You are our little giggle monster. I could never get Wyatt to laugh for me and you are always laughing. Your main tickle spots are your feet and lower ribs.
  • You love when mommy sings and rocks you to sleep.
  • You've been doing great during church; you usually sleep through most of it.
  • You had visitors this month for Wyatt's birthday party.
  • You had your 6 month well check and handled your shots like a pro!
  • You celebrated Wyatt's second birthday and your first Mother's Day.
  • You've been having lots of outside time since the weather has been very nice and you love it!
