We now have two teeth! One popped up soon after she turned five months, and the other came just a few days later. She was a little fussy but took it like a champ. We have been consistently walking with her the correct way in the jogging stroller (no car seat) but not running that way just yet.

At her 6 month appointment, we got EK’s stats. She is 18 pounds two ounces (84%), and is in the 97% for height (no surprises there!) and 92% for head circumference.

Emma Kate is in size 3 diapers, and is busting out of her 6 month onesies. She is in 9 month sleepers full time, and most of her pants are 9 months. She is eating about 34/35 ounces of formula a day, and the new thing that was “big” this month, was starting solid food! It took her about a week to get used to and figure out the spoon, but home girl really loves her some bananas!

She is now officially in her bed full time. We had a bit of a setback when we came back from staying at my parents for a week where she slept in the swing, but we powered through and after a few rough days, she is accepting the crib (still taking SHORT naps) but she slept all night in the crib last night without waking up, hooray!

We are having a great time learning more and more about Emma Kate and can’t wait to see what the next 6 months bring. She is such a sweet smiley girl.

QOTD: When did your baby get their first tooth? Who thinks EK needs to do a diaper dash?
