6 months old

by Dana on August 24, 2012

This little girl is growing up.
We’re at the 6 month mark!
And she’s totally changing.
She’s no longer a quiet slug. She loves to move, wiggle, shift her head from side to side as the kids run circles around her. And she even loves to shriek, and drool of course. I love it all (except being the human jungle gym).
The two biggest changes this month…

• She can roll to her tummy, push up, and then gets stuck. Gotta teach her how to roll back. She seems pretty happy about it though.
• Her hair has fallen out in the back. Boo. But she’s got a fabulous combover in the front.
I could tell the hair was thinning but couldn’t see the real change till I looked at these photos, just one month apart. Bye Bye pretty baby hair. We look forward to new toddler hair.
Clara is still a very happy girl. She’s starting to share her opinion and has her fussy times (can those teeth come in already?) But really, she still does a lot of this:
Here’s the 6 month comparison:

I look forward to this post EVERY month. I have a 6 month old too and I love seeing how similar and different our two little girls are. They seem to be on the same path, except for teeth. Briley has 2 that have popped through already. They are sharp too :)

She is really adorable! I love the ages 6 -18months they are fun to play with and aren’t bossy yet :o)

I love these comparisons! Keep them coming. :) I don’t have any kids so I had no idea their hair fell out. :X

My little one on Tuesday will turn 7 months. It is always interesting to read about your Clara’s achievements. By the way – get ready – soon she will become very mobile. My Estere started to crawl two days ago, and now she is practically unstoppable :D Your little daughter is so cute :) !

I can’t believe how much our kids look alike. Weirdest ever. Which of course means I think your kids are adorable!! :)
Lucy is a tiny bit older version of my daughter Julia – God must’ve made separate twins! :)
have a grand day. loooove your blog

What a doll! I love the hair in each month’s photo, as well as her adorable little grey skirt and that raspberry-colored ruffle top! Did you make those, too?

Great photos, especially the close up of Clara w the crib in the background. Happy 6 mos already, it goes so fast. My little Ruby will be 3 mos soon just cant believe it. Pictures are so wonderful to help remind us of their changes as we don’t always see them from day to day.

She’s just getting cuter and cuter! What a total Gerber baby shot at the end there. Sad to say goodbye to her sweet baby hair, but she’s rockin the combover!

Wow, that is surprising how much her hair has thinned out in a month. I am interested to see how it grows in!! I feel like she changes so much month to month. I look at Avery’s comparison’s each month and they don’t seem that different!

How she looks so lovely with that curl on her head. She’s so adorable!

I love the googly newborn stare! So full of wonder and taking everything in. I cannot wait until Edison’s personality kicks in; right now she’s as sweet as a cupcake <3 I bet she'll be a little brat though, just like her brother! Clara's hair is the most beautiful colour! Do you think she'll go white blonde like the rest of you?

Those eyes! I love her “roundness,” so cute.

32 Jen August 25, 2012 at 9:50 am

She is so cute, my husband just leaned over my shoulder and said ” What a pretty baby, look at that smile. I bet you wished the girls had hair like that when they were that little.”

Our girls were pretty bald till they hit about 8 months.

Sooo cute. Would love for you to do a photo tutorial on how to take awesome baby pictures :-)

Oh my goodness! She’s gotten so big. You can really tell how blond her hair is getting in the monthly comparisons.

You have a very beautiful baby girl and I love her eyes! Also, the monthly updates are really nice so we all can watch her grow. Thank you so much!

My daughter (19 months now) had a bad comb over. It reminded me of A.L.F (rememer that alian show from the olden days?). I really wanted to trim her hair to even it up, but didn’t dare do it. In the blink of an eye, at about a year old, the rest of her hair caught up and she has the most beautiful blonde curls now.

So, what I’m saying is, don’t touch it! She is so adorable. :)

Dana,
I have followed your blog for a while and rarely comment, but I couldn’t resist this post! My goodness, she is one of the cutest babies I have ever seen! I have three kids myself, and as a mom I think mine are adorable, but there is something special about your little Clara! Adorable.
