6 Months

So yesterday was our little girl’s six month birthday.
6 months old!
And I’m having troubles finding the words.

Watching her go from this tiny little creature who couldn’t even hold up her own head (or even realize she had a head) to this:
6 months!
Well. It’s been pretty amazing.

6 months!
She’s turned into this fun little person with her own personality. She’s a studier who watches things intently before she decides how to react. You can just see the wheels turning – she’s constantly trying to figure things out:

6 months old!
She has a clear sense of humor – and certain things just crack her up. Like when the baby in the mirror wears a hat:
6 months old!
Funniest thing ever.

Or when mommy wears glasses. That’s pretty hilarious, too.

And her likes and dislikes are also abundantly clear. Likes: Yellow, watching people do things, the lazy river during swim class, peaches, Big Bird, and sitting. Dislikes: Hats, cookie monster, things touching her feet, standing, squash, and her Uncle Andy (just kidding.)
6 months old!
She LOVES her daddy. And her doggie. They are the best.

Also can I just mention that it’s extremely difficult to get a good photo of a 6 month old? She’s CONSTANTLY in motion. As Matt put it – she looks like a muppet when she’s sitting. Flopping all about. So most of my photos are blurry:
6 months old!
and more than a few look like this:
6 months old!

And I have quite a few series like this one:
6 months old!
Sitting is fun!
6 months old!
Uh Oh…
6 months old!
FLOP!

So yeah…Life is a lot different than I pictured it would be a year ago. Different, but also pretty wonderful.

my new fav picture ever.

  11. Your pics brings back memories when my kids were toddlers. My daughter was a heavy thinker to, specially in the morning while laying in bed watching sparrows chirping on her windowsill. And when she said something, she was serious.

    My son till this day is always on the move that it's almost impossible to take sharp pics.

  13. Very cool - I especially liked her likes and dislikes list. Some babies seem to have more of a personality than others, and yours really seems to be a cool litle person!
