Little Miss at 6 mths

I’m a little late with Little Miss’s 6 month update as we were away on holiday when she turned 6 months, but here she is on the day she turned 6mths old. Our little beauty! I can’t believe we made her, I just can’t!


I got her weighed this week at 6mths 1 wk and she is doing really well. Despite losing a little weight when she had Bronchiolitis and didn’t want to eat, her love of solids and her milk has meant she has put the weight back on and more, which is obviously is wonderful news and she is now 15lb8oz

So yes the weaning is going really well, for the most part. We have gone for the traditional puree style weaning as we started at a little younger than 6 mths, and because we found it worked well with Monkey. (I will go into more of this in a future post). Initially I made purees for her and just had jars on days out but while we were on holiday, jars were the easiest thing as I didn’t fancy making purees on my holidays! The problem being that now she mainly wants to just eat the jars and won;t touch any of the lovely healthy purees I am making at home. Which is really frustrating! So, for the sake of less stress, while we will keep trying her on homemade purees, we are using a lot of jars… so bring on the orange food I guess!

WP_20150425_10_15_26_ProMeanwhile she is the oddest child when it comes to drinking her milk. She hates being held to feed and is much happier lying down while drinking (?) where she can wriggle around to her hearts content and have a good nosey at what is going on around her. Seriously, we get into the oddest positions while feeding her!


She also has a serious aversion to socks and they get pulled off all the time. We tried sock-ons but she pulls those off too and shoves them (and the sock) in her mouth and well the sock-ons felt like more of a choking hazard than anything so they have gone by the wayside now 😕

So what else is she doing? Chatting. Lots and lots of chatting which is adorable. It stopped for a bit but has come back with a vengeance again and is adorable. Here is a little clip of her chatting away in the bathy 🙂

She’s laughing a lot more now too and we have a gorgeous video of that but it has been vetoed as we make her laugh by saying her name over and over!

She’s not sitting unsupported yet, which is totally normal, but we had hoped she would be by now. Monkey was very stable sitting by 6 months and it is difficult not to compare… although he was a tummy sleeper from a few mths old so I guess he built up his muscles sooner than she has. We are eager for her to be able to sit properly though!

She still loves grabbing and Daddy’s ear is very much a target for her little hands at any opportunity. She also likes grabbing anything and everything that is in reach too, so we are having to be careful about where her little arms are heading! SHe is so inquisitive though and just loves grabbing and eating anything she is able to get her hands on!WP_20150423_18_12_54_Pro

Still no real routine in sight and actually it was ok while we were away as she was flexible and fit in to our plans easily. Now we are home it would be lovely if she settled down, but so far she is more up and down than ever and one day she barely slept at all! She is so good at night though (apart from the 530am starts some days) so we can’t really complain

Another exciting little development is that we have discovered today that our little lady has her first tooth! Very exciting. Not sure why I feel so proud of her about it… but I do 🙂

She also loves her walker now and is starting to scoot about in it, especially when trying to reach a toy she can gum (now semi-chew) to death!

So there we have it, our little lady at just over 6 mths old – how the time flies eh?

  1. What a cutie, she has the most gorgeous eyes! They really start to become little characters now don’t they, my little one is the same with her bottles, she prefers to lay on the floor away from us haha xx

  2. How adorable is she? She looks like she’s really enjoying the food! Toby’s got a sock aversion too. Actually, he’s got a clothes aversion – I swear if he could get himself undressed he would as he’d much prefer to run around in the nuddy! It’s hard not to compare baby ‘milestones’ but she’ll get there, as well as settling into a nice routine. Lovely post – wish I’d done something like this for my LB x #maternitymondays

  3. She’s definitely a cutie, and sounds as if she’s developing her own character too what with the aversion to socks! She has beautiful eyes too and looks so happy with life, and her orange food! Good luck with reintroducing the healthy purées and hopefully daddy’s ear will survive too. Thanks for linking with #sharethejoy

  4. Awww, so cute! I have a couple of boys and had the same with both of them where I started making homemade purées for them but then eventually got so frustrated when I’d spent ages making them and they refused to them that I turned more and more to the shop bought stuff. Doesn’t seem to have done either of them any harm! 🙂

  5. She’s so cute!!! I love her bath video and my gremlin loved it too. Glad she is doing so well and must be funny comparing her with monkey. I was so proud when my girlie got her first tooth too. It’s funny xx #maternitymondays

  6. Beautiful girl – love that first photo of her. That bath clip is just adorable – she had a lot to chatter about there didn’t she? It is hard not to compare sometimes with milestones but am sure Little Miss will get there soon and well done on the first tooth. Sophie ended up preferring the jars too – but she will eat most things now and we too kept perservering with home-made purees and got back there in the end. Lovely update and a belated happy half-birthday to your beautiful girl x

  7. I love reading your updates, can’t believe she is 6 months already. The chatting in the bath video is adorable and every time I see those gorgeous eyes my heart melts a little bit more. yay for the first tooth too x #maternitymondays

  8. Oh my word – I feel like I’ve just been kicked in the ovaries! She is so damn cute! I think you’re going to have a feisty one there she looks like she knows her mind. I’ll be interested to know if she becomes a fussy eater later on – I’m starting to wonder whether I should have done BLW with my two as I’ve never heard of a baby led weaned child becoming a fussy eater down the line. X

  9. Such a cutie! Sorry to hear she had bronchiolitis. It’s such a nasty respiratory infection isn’t it! Both my children are now on inhalers because of it. I love the bath time video, so lovely to hear them babble. I also used sock ons for a while but like you, I was worried about the choking hazard. Don’t worry about sitting up, both mine sat up at 10 months!

    • Thank you, it is nasty isn’t it! Sorry to hear they ended up on inhalers, sounds like LM got off lightly :/ good to hear about the sitting, thank you! xx

  10. What amazing eyes she has, what a sweetheart. Ethan loved the video of her talking. Our little lady doesn’t like me to hold her whilst having milk, she sits next to me. Doesn’t mind being in Daddy’s arms though!

    Thanks for linking up with Small Steps Amazing Achievements :0)

  11. Awww my little girl turns 6months in two days – I can’t believe it! Yours is soooo adorable, love her chatting in the bath! thanks for sharing that lovely moment x

Thanks for taking the time to write something. I love comments and read every one xx
