When Kay was born my mom proudly gave me her hand-me-down christening gown. It was made from my Grandma’s wedding dress and her, her brothers and all her cousins were christened in that gown. However, Hubby and I are Christian, not Catholic, so we don’t christen babies. My mom was very upset when I told her this. However, I promised when she gets big enough I will take photos of her in the gown.
Last week I held up my promise. I can’t wait to show them to my mom!
Kay kept trying to eat the dress so it was a very short ‘session’. The dress is very delicate and I didn’t want to risk any stains or rips.
I am in love with how they came out!!
Half a year. Twenty-six weeks. One hundred and eighty four days. (…yes, I may have had to look that last one up…)
It’s hard to believe Kayleigh is six months already! It seems like we just brought her home not that long ago. In another six months we will be having her first birthday party. (which I may or may not already be getting ideas for…)
Kay is loving her solid food – she’s up to about 3 ounces (3 frozen cubes) a night. I have been toying with the idea of giving her some solids for breakfast too but just haven’t started yet. So far she has had carrots, sweet potatoes, avocado and sweet peas. Carrots are by far her favorite.
On a whim one day I put a glob of sweet potatoes on her tray and she managed to pick it up and feed herself. Thinking it was a fluke, I tried again with the same result. It’s still hit and miss but we are working on it!!
No teeth yet, although the one tooth is still making its way in. I keep saying it should be in any day now for the last couple of weeks but she is still all gums.
She can sit up with help and keep herself propped up for a while but she can’t balance herself well enough to stay for a long time. She still can’t sit up on her own. She use to try and try until she would get frustrated and cry but found out its easier to wiggle around, roll over and crawl over to whatever she wants to see instead.
She is starting to crawl! Last week she started getting up on all fours and rocking back and forth. She army crawls all over the living room, heck on time I found her in the hallway when I left the room for a whole two minutes!
She is starting to have a favorite toy, as well!
Krabby is a crab stuffed animal that my cousin bought for Kay when she was born. Whenever Kay would get really cranky we would grab Krabby as a joke and say “A crab for the crab”. It soon became the only stuffed animal that would produce huge smiles for her for the weekly photos I take and now, whenever she sees him, she gets a gigantic smile and wants to hold him. It’s so cute! She enjoys chewing and sucking on his legs and playing with his eyes.
