our girls are duplicates. I loved the raging sea description 🙂 My oldest is the wild child, I call her the energizer bunny b/c she never stops. Whereas her baby sister is calm and laid back and so cuddly and sweet.
Can you believe the babies are 6 months (mine is tomorrow)??? CRAZY! It’s going too fast…
Personality: If Little Bug is the raging sea, Sweet Pea is the peaceful stream. It is interesting how you can already see glimpses into a baby’s personality before they are even 6 months old. Sweet Pea is so calm, laid back, quiet, mellow and just plain ‘ol sweet. There is something about her smile that just melts your heart every time she looks at you. She rarely cries. I could probably almost say she never cries, but when she gets overstimulated, she cries. But that is about it! I imagine when she gets a bit older and has more preferences she will use her voice more, but for now, you wouldn’t know she is in the room unless she is in a talkative mood!

Diapers and Clothes: Even though I still had a lot of size 1 and size 1-2 diapers, I had to go ahead and move Sweet Pea up to Size 2’s because she started leaking. At night, she wears two size 2 diapers and that keeps her from leaking overnight. She now wears mostly size 6 month clothing (especially onesies). She can still fit into her 3-6 month outfits, but 3 month onesies are too tight.
Eating: About a week and a half after turning 5 months old, Sweet Pea extended her feeding times from every 3 hours to 3.5 – 4 hours apart! She dropped a feeding which means she started eating only five times in a day instead of 6. She ate at 8am, 11:30am, 3:30pm, 7:30pm and 11:30pm. She also started wanting 5 ounces per feed which was very encouraging to see that her stomach could handle that. By the end of this month, Sweet Pea was eating SIX ounce bottles! Even though the GI had suggested we not let her eat more than 4 oz. per feed until after she turned 6 months, Sweet Pea did this on her own (in other words, I didn’t force it on her), so we went with it and Sweet Pea has done fine eating 6 ounces every feed.
