Capri Update: 6 & 7 Months*

I didn't get with it for the 6 month update! So we will combine them!


Those cheeks!

The last time I weighed her (about 2 weeks ago) she was staying at a steady 19 pounds. She seems to be slowing down a bit! I can't stop kissing those cheeks!


So far no sickness! She had a stuffy nose for a few days but nothing a little breastmilk up the nostril fixed it! I know you may think I'm crazy but it WORKS! The stuff is amazing! We have her 6 month (opps) well baby check up next week.

On a trip to the Zoo!
Oh, they are so stinkin precious when they sleep! Our schedules remains the same:
She goes to bed around 8pm, wakes at 6am to nurse, back to sleep until about 8:30am. She naps for about 1/2 hour at 1030. Then down for a 2.5 hour nap at 1:00pm when Jeremy naps (how did I get so blessed?)! Another little 1/2 hour nap around 6pm. She is a tummy sleeper! And loves her thumb! We don't use pacifiers anymore! 


We are slowly putting away the 6 month clothes. We have a array of 6-9 and 9 month clothes. A few 12 month-ers but they are probably made small anyway, right?! I just love to see her in little footsie sleepers! I also enjoy putting shoes on her, Bobby does not! He thinks they are pointless! I agree but they are so cute! Terrible picture of me in the back round! I didn't know I was in it! 


4 Generations!

My grandparents came out to visit from Vermont!  They were meeting Capri for the first time! We see friends all week long. Most of Jeremy's friends want to hold her! It's so sweet!! 

Brotherly/Sisterly Love

They continue to melt my heart! 


We are still 100% breastmilk. The doctor says I can start on food wit her, but I don't feel like it's necessary! She is gaining weight just fine and gets full and satisfied at each feeding. We did use jicama and cucumber to help with teething!


We have 3 things to report here! 

Little Miss is sitting all by herself! She gets tired sometimes and flops over! But it ends with a giggle! She loves her little independence in the bath tub! And Jeremy adores it too! 

We got her ears pierced! It was the worst fry I have ever heard! BUT it was over very quickly and we have had no infections! 

I love that Jeremy was right there to comfort her. And that her thumb went right in! 

Annnnd. . . We have 2 TEETH! On the bottom! They popped up in 2 days! One was while she was spending time with Auntie, Sierra and Grandma during our date night! Thanks girls for loving on a crabby baby! I have yet to snap a picture! Each time I try she puts her tongue over them! I will get one! 

All that is boy! An update on Jeremy*

This little boy is so full of passion! He has a soft, quiet voice yet he is very opinionated! He always wants to "help." The little personality quirks are what make our hearts grow with joy each day!

  • Inventive : Making our living room into a Wipeout course, making himself an excavator to eat, to play in the sand box, to clean up toys, to dump water, to put his plate in the sink
  • Critical Thinker: Both hands are full and he wants to take a drink, after he tried with each hand he put one of the things under his arm to take a drink! 
  • Sweet Big Brother: Anytime Capri cries, he is right there to soothe her, comfort her, make sure we know she needs something. He tries to calm her in the car saying, "It's ok Baby Girl. I am right next to you."He calls her "Sissy, LuLu." If he is not sure where she is he asks, "Mommy where is the baby."
  • Potty training is going well! We have some days with accidents but overall we are good! He even wears chonies to bed! 
  • Compassionate: If somebody is hurt, being disciplined, sad etc you will find Jeremy visually concerned. He's jittery, shaking a leg, almost like he is anxious! It's a very sweet trait! 
A few photos to show his personality!
