Hazel has discovered some likes and dislikes. Mostly dislikes. And she’s not afraid to scrunch her face up and breathe angrily through her nostrils about it.
Month 6 has been a rollercoaster. From not sleeping to sleeping entirely through the night for close to two blissful weeks, to sleeping worse than ever for a week. Never a dull night. The bad nights unfortunately color everything else with a certain exhausted misery but we try to stay ever positive.
She’s so much more interactive, feeding herself small bites of food, eggs, avocados, and discovering chocolate-chip cookies with tremendous fervor. It’s amazing how curious she is about her environment and the things and people in it. And how judgmental. Hazel’s scrutiny, for a 6-month-old, is alarming. She watches with great appraisal all in her view. I think it’s a wonderful thing.
