I swear that 6 months did not go by this fast during any other part of my life. But I guess time really does fly when you're having fun. Berlyn is now 6 months and 4 days old, and growing right before my very eyes. She now has FOUR cute little baby teeth and is eating (and loving) all her fruits and veggies! So far, she has had sweet potatoes, peas, green beans, carrots, pears, and apples! Next on the list is squash and bananas! I also want to try feeding her oatmeal instead of rice cereal; it seems like it is a little healthier for her.
When she got her first bottom teeth, she did not seem to have any symptoms at all. But, now that I look back on it, she did seem a little cranky and her nap times were a little wacky. As for her two top teeth, she had a fever between 99 and 101 degrees for about 4 1/2 days, didn't eat like she normally does, and didn't sleep too great. I felt so bad for her the whole time; she woke up in the middle of the night when her teeth were first cutting through and all she wanted to do was cuddle. It is so hard to watch your baby in pain. All you want to do is comfort them and there is nothing you can do.
Life has been so hectic lately that I have not had time to do Berlyn's monthly chalkboard photo. I will update this post once I get it taken, but for now, here are some pictures that I have taken of her this past month!
