Leah turned 6 months (yes, my jaw is dropped) last week and she brings us more and more joy each day. Currently, Mya is training– yes, “training.” not “teaching”– Leah to shake. Like a dog. So there’s that. I can’t figure out if Mya’s feeling deprived of not having a canine friend or if she really does not discern the difference between training a dog to do tricks versus teaching her baby sister new things. Leah does drool a lot, though. So– in Mya’s defense– it can get confusing.


  • Weight: 18 lbs 11 oz
  • Height: 29 1/4 in
  • Still has blue eyes.
  • Top layer of hair above her neck way longer than bottom layer. (Derek won’t let me trim it.) 😉
  • Acts bashful and burrows her face into my clavicle while squeezing my shirt (or neck) super tight.
  • Started using an exersaucer like this one, but she still leans way forward and head is a little wobbly.
  • Only rolls to left side. Then to tummy, then on back, then left side again.
  • Rolls to sleep on left side.
  • 6:30 bedtime. Usually wakes up at 10:45, 3:00, and 5:30.
  • Started sleeping in a sleep sack.
  • Loves chewing on my bananas. Sometimes likes rice cereal.
  • Pulls her right foot (and not her left) up to chew on some toes.
  • Favorite game: Someone holding her and chasing Mya around the house.
  • Likes her hair brushed after bath, balloons, the public restroom (with lots of mirrors) at Mya’s gymnastics, and (chewing and drooling on) this book.
  • Does not like any other public restroom, me sitting, or peas.
  • Gets so excited with little giggles when she wants to eat.
  • Sometimes stares off into space for a good 30 seconds.
  • Wearing 18 – 24 month clothes.
  • Pulls hair. Beware.
  • Growls (a lot!) in between her jibber jabber.
  • First time swimming and she loved it!


Hope your weekend is carefree and lovely, friends!
