Mae Stanley- Six Months

Woody crashed Gaines's six month photos too

(Too lazy to flip- sorry!)

Mae Stanley Facts

  • Weight and Height: 16lbs 7oz (50th percentile) and 26.5in (75th percentile)
  • Diaper Size: 3
  • Clothing Size: 6-9 mo- She hit a big growth spurt in the last month!
  • Sleep: You guys...we turned a corner! At night at least! We are using Moms on Call, and I swear, it worked the first night! I know that is not the norm, but I will take it. She is sleeping 12 hours most nights. Some nights she wakes after ten hours, but goes right back down after a feeding. Naps are still a hit or miss. We are working on going down to three a day, but we are in the car so much, most days are four. She tries to wake after 30-40 minutes, but I make her stay in her crib for an hour. Sometimes she goes back to sleep and will take a long nap, but a lot of time she just fusses. I hope if I stay (as) consistent (as I can), then maybe she will eventually start napping longer. Honestly though, if I had to pick being a great nighttime or daytime sleeper, I would pick night! She also is no longer using a sleepsack to sleep. We just put her in her crib with her lovie.
  • Eat: We started solids, but things haven't gone awesome. She has had some reactions, so we have had to be very careful when introducing new foods and have to keep the Benadryl close by. Her stomach is beginning to tolerate the food better though. We are going to meet with an allergist as well since she had such a strong reaction to some foods.
  • Her bottom two teeth just broke through! 
  • Her hair is light brown and has blue eyes
  • Can sit up a little bit. She has to balance on her hands and usually falls over quickly. If I put her in her bouncy chair, she tried to use her little ab muscles to pull up to a sitting position.
  • Loves to blow spit bubbles. Gaines will tell her, "No spitting Mae-Mae!"
  • At dinner, Mae Stanley and Gaines will kick each other and laugh and laugh. She is fitting in nicely with her brothers!
  • But both of her brothers are her heart. They love her and she loves them! The boys were at my parents during Spring Break, and she would get so sad in the car when they weren't next to her. When I picked them up, she just stared at them the whole way home.
  • Nicknames: The Ness, MaeMae, BaeMaeStay (Baby Mae Stanley), Squeak
