wait... WHAT? um... i'm the mom of a 6 month old!!! holy-stinkin-awesome-cow!!
i'm more in love with her every day. i love being a mom more and more every day. I am constantly being knocked to my knees in amazement by how much my God loves me through this child. I could stare at her for hours on end. She makes my heart quite literally explode.
6 months! SIX months!! Can't believe how big she is! She is sleeping through the night again (so thankful) -- just last night she slept 11 hours. We are still breastfeeding full time and have added in a morning and evening meal... oatmeal and fruits in the morning & veggies at night. This kid loves eating!
In the last month she has had her first fever (scary - 102.7... i called the doc late one night at his house freaking out) and how been nursing a cold for a good while. Boogers are NOT her friend. However the plus side of her illness is that we got to get an official weigh in at the doctor last week -- 18lbs 4oz! Heavy Weight!
As of last week she is quite an accomplished army crawler both backwards and forwards. She also loves walking... yes, walking! -- of course she has to hold on to your hands, but she is so tickled with herself when she puts one foot in front of the other.
She is such a talker! She inadvertently says "da da" all the time... but i'm still convinced "Ma Ma" will be her first real word. In addition to her chit chat, she is a giggle monster. She finds Oscar (our pooch) especially hilarious.
Oh - i could go on and on... but i'll stop. I am just really loving 6 months. Every day I just want to engulf her with every part of me -- i can't cuddle her close enough. Just like the day she was born, my senses fail me. Man! -- if I can't handle her now, how much more will I fall to my knees in the light of God's glory!!! Wow. What a blessing!
omg wow!! i can't believe how time has flown by! she is adorable!!ReplyDelete

Aw, she's a cutie! I came across your blog awhile back, when you were still pregnant, and then remembered and thought I'd check back today - it's amazing how big they get in six months!ReplyDelete
I was so hoping my kiddo's first word would be "mama", and he does say it, but the first word that I KNOW he said intentionally was "dog". He LOVES our dogs. *sigh* :-D
she is such a doll!!ReplyDelete
