At Six Months

Dear Munchkin,

You are half of a year old!  I remember, on the day you were born, a nurse said to me, "her half birthday will be Christmas Day."  I remember thinking, gosh, that's a long way off.  It came so fast!  You have grown form a sweet little infant to our sunshine girl.  You are full of personality!  So smiley and loving.  You love giving us kisses.  You continue to be known as the best baby that ever was.  Sleeping all night long, never a complaint, and going with the flow.  If I had to compare your personality to anyone in our family, I'd say you are most like your Mimi.

You are growing, girl.  15 pounds, 2 ounces and 26 inches long at your last checkup.  You are still petite, wearing 3-6 month clothes and just barely a size three diaper.  You are enjoying a bunch of new foods, yogurt, blueberries, and baby rice cakes.  You have been running your mouth, saying dada, baba, nana, mama, and blowing raspberries all day long.  You are finally sitting up on your own and are getting close to crawling, though I'd be happy to have you be a bit behind on that one. 

We took you photo shoot out of the studio this month, partly because it was difficult for us to get there with so much going on and partly because we had some beautiful weather for winter!  You are growing up too fast, my love, but we are enjoying watching you as you take in the world.
