BabyBrownSugar Update: 6 Months
by Christina Brown
So she took her first stab at grabbing around Mother's Day, like I mentioned in my last post. Since then she's been on a roll. First it was a rattle, then a few teething toys. Now it is literally everything on top of the table, everything you're wearing, hair, jewelry. All fair game for Cady.
The bright side of all this? She also successfully holds her own bottle! Which means, you guessed it, more multi-tasking for mommy - woot!Cadence can crawl in a 360 degree circle. It is the absolute funniest thing to watch. Though she does move forward and backward once in a blue moon, Cadence's favorite direction to crawl is around in a circle. I noticed this one day in June when I placed her on her play blanket with toys and looked down 60 seconds later to see her facing the exact opposite direction I put her down in! Cadence is (almost) sitting up. She's not quite capable of doing it all by herself yet, but she's close! Right now, Cadence would be considered a Supported Sitter (by Gerber at least) because she can sit upright but tends to fall forward without something holding her up due to the weight of her head. This is pretty accurate for most babies her age. She's only a few weeks out from being able to go it alone. Here's an updated list of Cady's likes and dislikes: Cadence likes: - Swimming (especially when sunglasses are involved) - Commercials during The Chica Show - Turning over on her back and not being able to turn back on her stomach (imagine a turtle, but with a deafening squeal) - When there's no milk left in her bottle All in all, Cadence is growing to be a beautiful, independent and incredibly intelligent little girl. Every day there's something new with her. She is so amazing.
Anyhoo, anything I have to look forward to this month? Any moms out there remember when their kids were this age? Any advice?
