She has had an incredible 6 months and I feel very lucky to have been able to share some amazing experiences with her. As you know we stayed in Australia for 3 months when she was just 5 weeks old which allowed us to have some quality bonding time together.
Ophelia can now roll over from front to back and back to front. She always seems so pleased with herself when she does. She can sit up unattended for short periods of time. She is very vocal and loves the sound of her own voice. She's either squealing, laughing or repeatedly saying baba.
Ophelia cut her first teeth at just 12 weeks old. We are now on her 6th tooth. She does seem to be suffering with it at the moment.
I am still breastfeeding Ophelia and I am still loving it. She doesn't feed as often as we have now started to wean her. She's currently on the puree/mash stage and is doing really well. I've written a post about her weaning journey so far, if you want to read more just click the link, Ophelia's first tastes
You may remember that from quite a young age, she used to sleep all through the night. I used to dream feed her around 10pm and she would sleep until around 5.30am. However, this is no longer the case. She now wakes around 3 times a night. I think it's her teeth giving her grief.
She still sleeps in our room in her snuzpod. I love having her in the room and if i'm honest I want her to stay in there for as long as she can. We have a small bedroom so she will have to go into her own room once she outgrows the snuzpod, which unfortunately won't be long.
She is wearing clothes that are size 3-6 months. I love her in dresses and I really like seeing her in pastel colours.
My favourite things:
There are a few things that Ophelia does that I just love. I love it when she grabs my face and pulls me in for kisses and cuddles. She loves rubbing her head against mine and then giving me kisses.
I love hearing her talking. She is just like me and her big sister and she talks for Britain.
I adore the way she looks at Eva. She absolutely idolises her. You can tell she has total admiration for her.
I love the way she scratches the side of the snuzpod to get my attention. It's so cute.
I love watching her play with a tambourine we have in the house. Her little face is a picture when she shakes it. She thinks she is chocolate.
My not so favourite things:
Her nappies at the moment are awful. When I say awful I mean awful. I think it's a combination of teething and weaning but we are having lots of atomic bomb moments lately.
She seems to love pulling hair. Either mine, her sisters or the dog. Needless to say, none of us are fans of that.
As i've already said, I can't believe how quickly time is going. I'm sure i'll be writing her one year update sooner than I think.
