And now...an update.
We are two weeks deep into summer vacation! Jade has graduated Kindergarten! I can't believe it!! I have a FIRST GRADER! And Cole has graduated K3, and finished his first ever year of school. These two are big kids!
And also, sorry Ivy for
At six months you:
- eat a variety of baby food (avocado, bananas, sweet potatoes, broccoli, green beans, peach, and pears).
- sit up all by yourself!
- roll over, both ways, all the time.
- are starting to babble! (babababababa!)
- stopped sucking your thumb (weird) and prefer the pacifier. You don't take a paci at night though because mommy doesn't play that game, but you like it during the day whether you are going down for a nap or just hanging out. You are the first Harmon baby to like a pacifier! (Not sure if this is a good thing or bad thing, but it's you and everything you do is cute :)
Next...Cole lost a tooth!!! Well actually, he didn't lose it. It was taken from him, poor kid! He first knocked his front right tooth loose when he was 2 years old. Since then it has been crooked and gray (you can see it in the picture of him above), but there was no medical reason for him to get the baby tooth removed. Well, a few months ago in preschool Cole hit heads with another kid and knocked it loose again. A few weeks later I noticed an abscess on the gums, indicating an infection. So off to the dentist we went, and they pulled that sucker out! So, the Tooth Fairy came to our house for the very first time ever! (Big sister Jade is a little jealous, she has yet to lose any teeth).
|Since when did the Tooth Fairy get so generous?? I'm pretty sure she said this was the rate for the FIRST tooth only!|
And for a little update on me and my mission to lose the baby weight...I am down to 137! I'm 7 pounds away from my goal weight, but my fitness level is definitely where I want it to be! I have been staying consistent with excersise and running, and even joined the gym. I have been enjoying crosstraining and taking a bunch of different group excersise classes. But I have been not so great with eating...when I get on track with that it will be a game changer and hopefully get those last 7lbs off! Nonethelss I am losing it slowly but surely, and at the beginning of the month I ran an 8k race. I ran 5 miles in 46 minutes! Just a smidge over a 9:00 minute pace! I feel great :)
