Six months! Our first age milestone with you, our handsome little man. It’s a funny thing as it feels like you’ve always been with us but then I hear six months and that seems like such a short period of time. It has flown by so fast. (I know I say this a lot, I know I’m sorry!)
I’m sure you’re going to be a real charmer as you have such an infectious laugh and an amazing smile. It really does melt my heart.
I love how your personality is beginning to show. You have determination, good physical strength and seem to be happiest when you are playing and eating! When you’re playing, you show interest in a lot of toys and the door bouncer. By far, you are happiest when you are interacting with others and you hate to be left alone, even for a minute! I think Annabelle is probably your favourite person to be around.
This month, your hair is starting to grow longer and thicker. Your eyes look like they are beginning to change colour ever so slightly. I think it was about now that Annabelle started getting rust colour flecks near her pupils.
You are also very vocal this month and making a lot more sounds. ‘Bah’, ‘Yai’, ‘Da’ and ‘Mmm’. This is helping us to understand what you want as ‘Mmm’ normally means you want to eat!
At six months:
- You love being sung to
- You are wearing 6-9 and some 9-12 month clothes
- You are wearing size 4 nappies
- You love eating biscuits, fruit and potatoes
- Your sleeping is starting to get a bit better
- You love to try to cuddle and kiss me and touch my face
We love you little dude.

To see what else I had to say about Heath turning six months, watch my YouTube video here!
Long before I had a blog, I used to take these monthly pictures of Annabelle and upload them to Facebook. Some of you may have seen them before but a lot of you probably won’t know is that I kept a diary of sorts for her too. I used to write once a month but silly me, I never really kept a log of the important milestones. When my dad passed away, I stopped writing regularly as I really wasn’t really in a good head space (but I think I may try to recreate one for her using triggers from what is currently happening with Heath).
Anyway, as Heath is six months old today and it is also a Thursday, I thought I would share with you Annabelle’s photo and my journal entry. I hope you like it.
‘My dear Annabelle,
My sweet little girl. I can’t believe we have reached your first age milestone. Six months! Six whole months.
You really are such a delight. Everyone loves you. And I mean everyone. Our family, our friends, even total strangers! You just radiate happiness with your beautiful face and your infectious smile. Every where we go, people stop us to adore you, to compliment you or to just say hello (it can be quite annoying when I try to go shopping! I can’t get in and out of a shop without having to talk to a shop assistant and some shoppers too!).
You have so many friends! You are happy to be around everyone and we really have such a wonderful time together, going to baby groups, on play dates and to the park. You interact with people of all generations and have a beaming smile for everyone we meet.
You’re still a pickle with your eating habits. This is my biggest stress. You aren’t too fussed with your milk or purees (unless it is pear or apple, then I can’t feed it to you fast enough!). Your weight is still much lower than we would like but it doesn’t hinder you in anyway. You’re sitting up like a pro and chatting away like you’re having a conversation with us.
I can’t believe how much hair you have and how fast it’s growing. It’s so fine and quite straight like your daddy’s but darker like mine was when I was a little girl. You’re really starting to look like a little girl. Obviously I’m biased when I say you’re the most beautiful little girl in the world but I think a LOT of other people would agree too! 🙂
At six months old:
- You absolutely love music especially song time at playgroups
- Your favourite snack is fresh blueberries, which I quarter for you
- You love watching Baby Jake given the chance
- You also love listening to Britney Spears and Call Me Maybe
- Your favourite toys are Mr Far He He (a giraffe rattle), lamb and monkey
I love you very much my little princess. You are the sweetest most perfect little girl.
Lots of love from,
Thanks for reading and stay tuned for Heath’s six month update which should be live in a few days. Bx
