Can't believe Ida is already 6 months old!!! I finally feel like we're hitting our groove and I'm loving her at this age. The last week or so she has been sick with a pretty bad cold and a double ear infection. She hasn't been sleeping well and crying more than usual, but she's on the mend and getting back to her usual cheerful self.
We've been trying to get out on walks more (#walkswithIda) and Ida loves it. She's always peeking around to look at everything and is a lot more curious than I was expecting. She's been spending a lot of time in the Ergo thanks to her cold and I think she is a huge fan.
Ida is always along for the ride and has the best go-with-the-flow personality. She enjoys naps no matter the time or location and seems to have sleep patterns more like me (early to bed, early to rise) instead of the rest of our night owl family. Before Ida, I used to enjoy early weekend mornings working on projects and putzing around the house before everyone else woke up. Now Ida joins me in whatever project I'm working on and rides along in the Ergo on my early morning grocery runs. I love getting to have some quiet one-on-one time with her before the rest of our family wakes up.
We started her on solids over the last month. She has enjoyed everything we've given her except the peas/pear baby food but who really likes that anyway?! She's really into watching us eat and wants to try whatever we're having... yup, that's my daughter!
She's still quiet, but a really happy baby. I love her smiles more than anything and she's always up for a cuddle. We've been so lucky to add such a sweet baby to our family and I'm so grateful for the joy she adds to our life. I'm looking forward to watching her grow and change in the coming months.
