My Little Rose: My Little Rose: 6 Months Old (26 Weeks)

My Little Rose,

You are officially now six month old. All healthy, all pink and perfect. You are always happy. Always cooing and laughing. You are my joy!








I am doing well so far on keeping up with the photo shoots. It isn’t always easy but I am just too in love with your sweet face, plus I know it won’t be this hard all the time. And I would regret not having these. One of our three rotating stations is the master bed. I strip down the sheets, open the curtains wide and wait for the sun to be at that perfect angle.






You are doing well at putting yourself to sleep. I was going to transition you out of your bassinet into the crib last week but you had a cold. Now last week with the flipping onto your belly but not able to get back onto your back it doesn’t feel like the right time either. But this week I feel like I have no choice. You are officially too big for the bassinet. So I compromised. I made a cup in your crib with two rolled up towels on either side of your bassinet mattress in the crib. I am terrified of SIDs, but this was the only situation I could think of to use for the next two or three weeks until you learn to flip both ways.



I bring up two bottles full of water so if you need a bottle in the middle of the night or early in the morning I don’t have to go downstairs to get it. One night I forgot to bring up your bottles so as I jumped in the shower I texted your father to bring them up. I came out of the shower to find your bottles tucked neatly onto my side of the bed. Your father… he is a funny man.


When you wake up too early or aren’t quite ready to go to bed at night after I put your brother to bed we chill out in my big bed. I lay down a towel and you play with your bar of toys. It’s nice to just lay down and relax with you. I love these quiet moments just you and I. I think the hardest thing about having a second child is that I constantly feel torn between the two of you, to make sure that you both get the time and attention you need and deserve.




We are going to have to do something about this little tub. I think this just might be the last week you are going to be in here. Water is getting everywhere. Although I would love for you to be really sitting up before I switch you I think that I may have to transition you early, like we did with the bassinet.

I love that you and your brother are now starting to engage with the same toys. Mostly it’s you touching his toys and then him moving them away from you. However there are moments when you are both really playing with the same thing, or when he brings something over to share with you. Heart Meltingly Awesome.


With daddy working so much, running errands is interesting. Since I still my feet still hurt and my back is still wrecked carrying you in the baby Bjorn for any length of time is just too painful. And fitting you both in the cart, with any groceries just isn’t going to work. The only option that works is to put you both in the stroller; I wheel the stroller around and pull the cart behind us. Our choo choo train brings smiles to everyone that sees us. I don’t care if we look strange it works.


You are trying to eat everything and you are drooling like crazy. I wonder if your teeth are going to take FOREVER to come in like your brothers did. Six months is typically when you start solids but you arent sitting up really well yet. I decided to wait a few more weeks.
