Cora is 6 months

Cora is 6 months today. The past half year has flown by! Hard to believe that it been 6 months since I was surprised by how fast Cora busted in. The time flies even faster when it is your third. It has been quite an adjustment and things are usually crazy and busy.


It has been 6 months since you busted into our lives in such a rush we couldn't make it to the hospital in time and you were delivered by my friend Sarah in the bathroom. Right from the start you had a unique personality. You were pretty mellow and sleepy at first but you had your feisty moments. You loved sticking out your tongue and sucking on it. At night you would be sucking on a pretend pacifier or boob. You slept good at night for the first 4.5 months but you were a noisy sleeper as a newborn and young infant.

You were very sleepy for the first 2 months but after that you took a lot of cat naps during the day but slept good at night. You had nights where you slept 11 hours! Of course that didn't last and you are now going through a more wakeful phase.

You smiled very early and laughed at 1 month old. You rolled from your front to back at 3 months old. You hated tummy time with a passion until you were older so you still haven't done your back to your tummy. You ended up with a neck condition called torticollis. Delia had the same thing so we thought it would go away on its own but you still have it so we are seeing a physical therapist.

You love going on hikes in the carrier. Your brother and sister adore you. Delia loves holding you and talking to you. Teddy likes you a lot too he just thinks he can climb on you and wrestle so we got to watch him closely. He makes you laugh when he is being goofy and will sometimes ask to hold her Coca which means he is asking to hold Cora.

We are so lucky to have you in our lives. I can't believe how fast you are growing and changing. I will miss these days but I look forward to what is ahead.
