Six months!! Aaahhh!!! It’s crazy that our baby girl is already half a year old. She is a Rollie Pollie and rolls all over the floor. She also scoots all over on her belly to get a toy. I have already had to start baby proofing our tiny apartment, because she gets everything within reach and I know crawling is around the corner. Big news!! Her first tooth just started to pop through this last week!
Riis is a super good eater and loves her fruits and veggies. Like all things it doesn’t sit well in her tummy, so we have had to take it a little bit at a time. She has randomly developed a fear of the vacuum. It’s never bothered her before and I do it all the time. Even the small hand vac upsets her. Kids!
We took Riis to the beach for her first time. She enjoyed a solid snooze on her towel, while listening to the waves crash. She also loved the water and it didn’t faze her even though it was the freezing cold Atlantic ocean.
For the fourth of July I thought it would be funny to get the classic Old Navy shirts and all match. When I got to the store they were all sold out of the men’s, so I got Tyson a women’s. Yup, women’s shirts are made for women and definitely not men. So Riis and mom matched.
At night she rolls over in her crib and will sleep face down. It freaks me out, so whenever I hear her flip over I have to go check. She also gets stuck in the rungs and it wakes her up. A new problem we have started facing is wetting the bed. Her diapers just can’t handle all the liquid. Maybe a different brand would solve the problem. Any suggestions?? We use Huggies. As of now still no sleep for mommy.
I took Riis swinging at the park for the first time and she loved it! Now we hit up the swings whenever we can.
We had a super fun weekend where we got an extra day with Tyson. Tyson had a work party in the Hamptons, so we took our first road trip with Riis and spent all day Friday there. At the party she got SO much attention and was in heaven. Then we had our rental car for an extra day, so we made a spontaneous trip to PA for some killer cheesesteaks at Genos. Then we went to see the beautiful new Philadelphia LDS temple and ended our day getaway with the Rocky steps at the museum. We learned that Riis loves the car when she is tired and it puts her right to sleep. If she has energy and is ready to go it’s a different story.
I have decided that going to the park is not only fun for Riis, but me as well. Talk about people watching. New York is prime time for this, but let me tell you the parks are a different ball park. There are mostly nannies with the few of us moms scattered in between. There are nannies who have got it together and you know they know they are awesome and then there are the hot mess nannies yelling out “time out” threats to their child, who in my eyes, really isn’t being that naughty. The mom’s are a whole other story. Let’s just say sometimes we go to the park so I feel better about my mommying skills.
Riis’ BF (mom says boy friend, but dad says best friend) is Jax!! These two cuties are perfect little buddies. They get so excited to see each other and I love it!
Happy Half Birthday, baby girl!!
