Today my baby is half way to one year! Six months honestly isn't too much different from five months, it just feels like she's so much older.
I've thought for the longest time she might be teething, but now I'm almost certain of it. The reason for that is she has been going through some major crying spells. I'm not trying to boast or anything but she really, truly very rarely cries. When she needs something or is tired, she just yells and squeaks. Sometimes if I put her down and she's in a bad mood she makes the sound like she's crying but no tears are actually shed. On certain days she seems completely miserable. She cries like she's in so much pain. Friday my sister called me because Natalie was inconsolable. I heard her in the background and my eyes filled with tears. I was scared and felt so helpless. I had no idea what was going on with her and there was nothing I could do, not even comfort her. I knew something had to be causing her physical discomfort. My sis said she thought it could very well be teething and my in laws said the same thing.
Not too many milestones are happening other than that. She seems a long ways from crawling but is hopefully close to sitting on her own soon. She likes standing up (not on her own) and putting one foot in front of the other while you hold her hands. She thinks she's big stuff wobbling around like a little tiny drunk.
Sleep is still a bit of a challenge. Most days she only takes two naps which vary on length day to day. As long as she doesn't nap passed six o'clock in the evening she'll usually fall asleep around nine, sometimes ten. The amount she wakes up to eat at night changes all the time too. Lately it's been two or three times, which is a slight improvement. Somehow I'm managing just fine though. I would probably do a little better if I didn't stay up past midnight writing blog post though.
Happy six months Natalie! I love you so much.
