1. I can’t believe she is 6 months already! How time flies! She is just the cutest and she always looks so happy in her pictures!

  2. I cannot believe that she is already 6 months! Such a cutie! I love her little chubby legs, and that picture with her tongue out is just precious. Loving the Tarheels cheerleading outfit 🙂

  3. We did BLW with my son and it worked like a charm. It wasn’t difficult or fancy, just simple. We started with avocado and watermelon that was cut up in thin pieces. I breast feed exclusively until 8 months, he just seemed happier that way. And food up until a year was really just an exploration, breast milk provided all his nutritional needs. I will say, he is 2.5 and has always loved vegetables so who knows? Maybe it was chance or maybe the technique worked? Keep it simple, feed the baby what you are eating within reason. Just thought I would offer my experience, I am by no means and an expert!

  4. Aw very sweet post- haha my twins are 9 mos and she weighs right at what they are- but they are little! I found a Lilly Pulitzer dress for my 5 year old today in a bag of clothes given to us and thought of you and your Lily!

  5. I just love her smile, especially when she sticks her tongue out! She really just seems so happy and I love that!

    I’ve never heard of the BLW method before but I am looking forward to reading more about your experience with it and maybe it’s something we will try with Baby #2! I am planning on breastfeeding the first 6 months as well.

  6. I can’t believe she is already 6 months old! I’ve been following closely as my little guy is a few months behind her so I am taking notes! I have read about that baltic amber, so I think I might be trying it out when we get to that point. And I’m glad to hear you can still swaddle at 6 months, because our guy needs it bad and I so fear not doing it anymore!!

  7. Okay so a few questions and comments… Ainsley hates being hot too and hates wearing shoes and socks! It seems like a lot of babies hate shoes and socks… wonder why? Questions… How did you hear about BLW? What resources would you suggest on that? I am not familiar. Also, where did you get her teething necklace? She is a precious little munchkin! They grow up sooo fast!

    1. NO idea! she IMMEDIATELY takes them off when i put them on her. it’s SO hard to keep them on. and i heard about baby led weaning from some friends (i’m WAY more of a crunchy mom than i thought I’d ever be)… you can find good resources here: http://www.babyledweaning.com/ and http://wholesomebabyfood.momtastic.com/. I got her teething necklace at the birth center in Chapel Hill but you can get them from: http://www.sweetbottomsbaby.com/amber_teething_necklace.html

  8. i can’t believe how fast time is going! she is SOOO happy! her and addi would be such good friends 🙂 I am excited to follow you guys with your baby led weaning. addi eats purees but always grabbing the spoon and I can’t get much in her mouth – I’m nervous about the real food thing. I need to read more about it! and I thought addi would never sleep unswaddled either. It took a few nights of her getting used to her stomach and dealing with some tears but she did it. (not that we sleep awesome all the time at all, but we’re not swaddled!)

  9. She is just precious! I have heard so much about the baby led weaning but you are the first one that really explained what it was. I wish I would have heard that before we started my son… we started with rice cereal and we are going to use the “baby led weaning” concept when we start actual food. I love reading your updates!

    1. Oh and how do you do the backgrounds on her monthly pictures on the floor? Do you use a different blanket every time?

        1. That is a great idea! I am going to have to go get some scrap fabric… I’m a little late on this considering my son is almost 5 months!
