R alpha and leaf from Jen Wilson's Worn Comfort Elements kits (Afternoon Lagoon and Toasted Oatmeal), scraplift of a page in Ali Edward's A Designer's Eye.

Journaling:
You sleep in your room for naps and bedtime but still mostly in the bouncer mostly. We have established a bedtime routine now. First we make sure you�re not hungry, then we change your diaper, then I read Brown Brown, Brown Bear What Do You See? By Bill Martin, Jr. After that Jessi reads, from memory, The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle, and then we sing Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star using hand motions. While we sing, you wildly wave your arms around and kick your legs to let us know how excited you are...and probably also to show us you appreciate our routine so that you know what to expect of your day. You go to bed at 7. Mom wakes you to feed you at 10:30. You wake up to eat at 5:00am to eat. Then sleep until 7:00am. Your 6-9 month outfits are getting snug! You are huge. On Feb 9, you weigh 16 lbs, 2 oz!! At the beginning of the month you start grabbing at toys and are interested in more than just your hands. On Feb 5, you sat up for the first time without support. Then you leaned into Daddy�s legs for help. You first visit the District on Feb 13 to go to The Museum of Natural History. You first slept through the night on Feb 13, but didn�t make it a habit until Feb 24, when you slept through the night 5 nights in a row! On Feb 19 I started to wean you to formula at the advice of your gastroenterologist due to your rash, eczema, and allergies. You hated formula AND the bottle. It took so long to get an OUNCE into you and then you threw it up (you were allergic to the hypoallergenic formula) and you wanted to eat from Mommy. I gave up dairy foods in hopes that it would help. Yes, I gave up bagels with chive cream cheese - my fave. But you�re worth it. At the end of the month, I took you for a hernia check - thank goodness that came out negative - and also to the dermatologist for your persistent rash.
