Our 6 MONTH UPDATE is coming a week late, because Ava’s Doctor appointment was scheduled a little later.
Well… a half of a year sure does go fast and I’m sure Ava will be a year old before we know it. The last 6 months have been so amazing. All the new challenges have been worth every second and I can honestly say I love the age Ava is right now she is so much fun…
AVA is 16 lbs 15oz and 28 inches long. She has nice long legs and has long fingers… maybe a basketball player?? a guitar player? or a rockette??
FRUITS & VEGGIES are the new update in the eating category. Ava loves them. Almost so much now that oatmeal is getting the boot. She will still eat her oatmeal but we sometimes need to distract her with toys. She loves squash, peas, carrots, green beans, bananas, & peaches. Tomorrow she will try apples and I am sure she will love them. I am also excited to try avocado!
I love that she sleeps for longer periods at night, on most nights it is a solid 10 hours (sometimes longer and sometimes shorter) We don’t have a set bed time for her and we are fine with that right now. It works for my schedule since my hours are all over the place. She usually falls asleep between 7-815pm and gets up between 5:45-6:45am.
Her naps are pretty good. I guess there are other babies that nap a lot better then her, but as long as she sleeps well at night I don’t care!!
Ava loves to roll around, she enjoys sitting up on her own and can’t get enough of bright colored and animated toys. She is teething so any toy that she can get in her mouth seems to be her favorite right now! She is a VERY happy baby and her giggles are contagious. I can’t wait for more fun to come once she starts crawling…. oh boy!
These two can’t get enough of each other.
Not a lot has changed for me this past month. I think my updates are coming to an end here. Besides improving strength, everything else will probably stay the same. My food choices have been healthy and I have been conscious of loading up with fruits & veggies. I do have my cheat meals and treats but I feel that almost all my meals are well balanced and nutritious. My weight is consistent and doesn’t fluctuate much at this point. This past month I have noticed strength improvements in my core and glutes... I love that.
(This is a recycled photo, I haven’t taken any photos of myself this past month! I am not really good at the Selfie!)
My workouts haven’t been too intense. My focus has been Boot Camp, Group Power, and Barre class. Besides teaching and taking the barre classes I wasn’t able to complete any extra workouts on my own. I am fine with that because my hip has been bothering me again on any days that I could not workout I chose to rest, ice, & stretch. It feels a little bit better after a weekend of rest.
(blurry pic, but Ava was smiling in this one!)
I do have a new goal this month, and that is to focus on increasing pushup strength and repetitions!! Who’s in??
