Things that are awesome at 6 months (I overuse the word "great"?)

(It takes a lot of attempts to do monthly pictures these days -- I've got quite the cute wiggle worm!)

  • The Happy Sleeper method (you know it's good and hip because they use the narrow YWFT Hannah font on their website) is working really great, and all of a sudden we are all sleeping for longer stretches of time.  I think my body is a little confused at the moment with the sudden uptick in sleep, because I've had insomnia a few times.  Come on self, it really is okay, you can sleep now, shhhhh.  But it's great.  Maybe I need to start using the Sleep Wave method on myself: "It's time to sleep now, self.  I'm right here.  I love you."  Hah.

  • Now that she goes down reliably between 7-7:30PM there's this whole new world of nighttime time.  The other night I plopped down on the couch with some wine, my Secret Garden coloring book (more on that another time but it is marvelous), new colored pencils, and A Bit of Fry and Laurie and chilled out with zero pacifiers to pop back in (because we took them all away like meanies).

  • My baby smiles at everyone.  It's great.

  • She's starting to show, like, preferences for things.  Like a real little human person!  Avocados are apparently no bueno, but sweet potatoes are a tentative go.  More avocado for me!  Everyone is happy with that arrangement.  (We'll try the avocado again soon.  You gotta like guac, kiddo, it's the top food in our house.)

  • Did I mention we're all getting more sleep?  I'm going to mention that again, because it is that great.

  2. Lemme try to comment again without all the typos. Spare time during sleepy hours is magical! Warren didn't like avocados as a babe, but loves guac now. Lots of folks were eager to tell me that wee ones could find avocados bland because everyone knows better than moi. ;)

    1. Yeah -- definitely will just keep trying the avocados. I think I win parent of the year award because she definitely enjoyed the pizza crust I let her gnaw on.
