Sweet Baby Girl- You are a whopping 6 months old now!
**Your little personality is growing just as it is depicted in these pictures. You have always been a happy, content, smiley baby, but now your little personality is really starting to come out. In the last month you have LOVED screeching and squealing just to hear your own voice. Your Daddy thinks you will be an outgoing, social butterfly just like Mommy.
**You have been eating, but are pretty shrimpy still. Mommy laughs because you really are a Miss Piggy, but you just don't seem to be putting on the pounds...perhaps you will be thankful for that later on! We have to HIDE bottles from you after you feed because if you can see it you flip out screaming for more. We even have to hide the ones in the sink by laying them down sideways so she can't see them when we happen to walk by. The other day at Wal-mart we went down the bottle aisle and you literally were reaching for the bottles in packages and trying to knock them off the shelves. it was hilarious! We have gotten through Stage 1 Carrots, Green Beans, Sweet Potatoes, and Squash. We start fruit tomorrow! Your favorite so far is Sweet Potatoes just like your big brother at this stage in the game.
**You really enjoy watching your brother. You often laugh at him, and he loves you to pieces. The other night you were crying and he came and put about 5 of his stuffed animals in your bed before I realized what he was even doing. I walked in and he was leaning over your crib saying "It's Ok Baby Sister, Don't be scared". I thought I was going to cry! You also love to grab at your Daddy's watch, play on your playmat and watch an occasional Praise Baby or baby video on "ON Demand". You have also gotten much more active in your jumparoo. Your feet almost touch the ground in it now! You also LOVE baths just like your Mommy! You are always mesmerized by our cat, Mable, and our dog, Atticus.
**You are wearing size 2 diapers still and size 3-6 month clothes, but are starting to fit into the 6 month sizes a little better! You actually do squeal and get really happy when I put a bow on your head as if to say..."I feel so pretty!" It really is funny!
**You are finally taking naps in your bed now instead of the swing. You have finally mastered falling asleep in the bed by yourself and rarely cry when we put you down for a nap or bedtime. We learned our lesson with Anderson about rocking a baby to sleep every night! You, like your brother did, love sleeping on your tummy and I have given up on trying to get you to stay on your back. We have started putting on your diaper and then one of Anderson's diapers over it at night to keep you from wetting the bed. You sleep from 7pm-7 or 8am and usually take two naps around 10-12 and 2-4.
**Your hair that was once plentiful and dark has all fallen out. It is growing back now very quickly. In the last week I swear it has just grown like a weed. I can even clip a small bow in it...but it is BLONDE! Really light blonde and your eyes are getting lighter blue everyday. I don't know how, but I think your Daddy and I may have managed to have a blonde haired, blue eyed baby! HA!
We love you so much, and thank God often for such a sweet little blessing!
