Baby R’s 6 Month Update | Milestone Baby Photographer In Northern Virginia
Jan 20, 2021
Time, why are you flying by?! I mean, you’ve probably heard this a lot of time (from other moms too) but… seriously, it really feels like I have given birth JUST YESTERDAY. How is Baby R 6 months already?! I still remember that day when I held him in my arms for the first time. I really can’t believe how fast he’s growing.
Since Baby R is 6 months now, here is his 6 month update. For the past 6 months with Baby R as part of our family, here are the things that we have grateful for:
That Baby R is such a huge baby and he is continuously growing. He was out of his newborn clothes within the first 2 weeks of his life. Now that he is 6-month old, he’s wearing 9-month onesies & pants, and 12-month footed pajamas.
He slept through the night as soon as he was 2 months old. It made managing the busy fall season of this photography business so much easier.
Baby R is such a happy & content baby. He always has a smile on his face as soon as he sees us, even right after waking up from a nap. He RARELY cries & he RARELY gets upset. But when he cries, it’s so hard to console him.
He loves his older siblings so much & enjoys playing with them. He loves them so much that he prioritizes playing with them over his own feeding. Hahaha!
Just the sight of Baby R’s older sister’s face is enough to make him laugh. I love watching the 2 of them interact. There’s always tons of laughing and screaming (mostly from Baby R).
Baby R loves food. So far, he’s had oatmeal cereals, applesauce, bananas, carrots, squash, sweet potato, and cantaloupe. And he loves all of them. The only thing he didn’t like was avocado.
He has been out of swaddle since he rolled over before he turned 4 months. Recently, when he’s doing tummy time and attempting to reach a toy, he’s been wiggling his butt as if he’s going to crawl.
He said “mama” for the first time before he turned 6 months. I know it was just babbling and it really didn’t mean anything but I was over the moon when I heard it.
Our breastfeeding journey is still going strong for over 6 months. Although I am not producing enough milk, we are supplementing with formula right after he nurses from me.
He loves to hold my hand while looking at me when he’s nursing from me. I just love that I get to have that quiet time with him.
I am the only one whom he’ll drink his formula from. He only plays whenever my husband tries to give him his formula.
Baby R loves blowing bubbles with his saliva.
He has been babbling A LOT lately. He loves it when we are talking to him.
Here are the photos from Baby R’s 3-month milestone mini photo shoot.

I can’t wait to see what we’ll be in store for Baby R and our family in the next 3 months. 🙂
