Six Months In

Six months ago we went from a family of two (plus pets) to a family of three (plus pets).

My how the time has flown.

In the past six months I have officially learned how to change a diaper. My total diaper changing count pre-Noah was “1”. Obviously, I have way surpassed that by this point. I’ve learned to read her cues: her many different cries, rubbing her eyes when she’s tired, and little coos of sweet contentment. And more than anything I’ve grown to love her more than I could ever imagine. Not that I didn’t think I would love her, but the love for her is deeper than I ever thought possible. She is such a joy and a blessing in our lives.

What has Noah been up to? She’s been growing and developing by leaps and bounds. We chose to follow the book On Becoming Baby Wise: Giving Your Infant the Gift of Nighttime Sleep which encourages creating healthy sleeping habits for your little one as well as placing the parent’s marriage as a priority over the child. Because of the great suggestions outlined in the book, Noah has been sleeping through the night since around eight or ten weeks old. Of course, we also think it has something to do with the BumGenius cloth diapers she has been wearing. The first night she slept through the night was the first night she wore her cloth diapers!

Like most babies she has learned to follow objects around the room, respond to sounds, recognize her name, and enjoy some quality giggle time. Last month, just before Easter she started sitting up on her own, and ever since then it has been her main goal to crawl. According to ML she is creeping (a G.I. Joe belly crawl) right now but is bound and determined to get the official crawl down pat. It’s so close every time she gets up on her hands and knees. Oh well. We just need to enjoy each stage as it happens.

The past few weeks we have started working on a little ASL (American Sign Language). She’s not signing back yet, but hopefully, it’s starting to sink in a little. Or either I just provide great entertainment for her as I pant like a dog (that’s the sign for dog)!

I’m not sure what the next six months holds for us, but we sure are enjoying the ride! Has anyone had success with teaching their infant ASL? If so, what advice do you have for it?

Both the BumGenius cloth diapers and On Becoming Baby Wise are available on the the sidebar through the Products I Love!: Amazon Affiliates link.
