So yesterday was our little girl’s six month birthday.
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:
Well. It’s been pretty amazing.
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:
She has a clear sense of humor – and certain things just crack her up. Like when the baby in the mirror wears a hat:
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.)
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:
and more than a few look like this:
And I have quite a few series like this one:
Sitting is fun!
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.
