Six Months of Juniper!
Juni has had yet another exciting and jam-packed month.
In the last month, she helped me and my husband ring in birthdays, celebrated her first Father's Day, went to the beach TWICE, took a road trip to our fabric supplier and tried her first solid foods (avocado, banana and carrots)!
She loves water so much, I secretly think she'll be the female version of Michael Phelps, and get such a kick of watching her splash her brother wildly during bath-time.
Sleeping have still been incredibly tough for us, some nights she wakes up every 90 minutes. I've given in to letting her nurse back to sleep each time she wakes up, which seems to make the whole situation even worse, as she just expects that every time -- and if daddy goes to fetch her, she is FURIOUS.
Her gums and swollen, and she's a drooly mess, but no teeth yet! She loves a little piece of frozen banana, offered in one of those silicone self-feeding things. We've also been trying the frozen wash cloth trick -- but she really loves her wooden teethers.
She's such a vocal girl, and has come thisclose to saying "hiiii" to us. She loves peek-a-boo, and has the most amazing belly laugh. Her hair has lightened quite a bit, and definitely has auburn undertones (!!!!!) -- but her lashes remain dark and ridiculously amazing.
She loves her brother fiercely, and watching their bond unfold has been my favorite part of parenthood thus far.
She is such a happy baby, and aside from her occasional clingy-ness and terrible (terrible) sleep she is such an easy easy baby! I love this girl so so much -- six months have flown by with the blink of an eye, but I'm quickly remembering why this was such a memorable age for me with Eli! Their personalities really start to shine through, and I am so excited to see what this girl has in store for us.
