As I reflect on the last 6 months, I can’t help to think, ‘Where has the time gone?’.
SIX months doesn’t seem like a long time, but when I see how much our little babe has grown I can’t even believe it!
She is so strong. She has been rolling over tummy to back and vice versa since she was 4 months. She can lift her neck up, sit up straight and even stand with a little help from her piano.
She is so active. When she started rolling over she wouldn’t stop. She would roll over from one side of the room to the other! We got her a play pen to try to contain her, but she did not like that! She started going to the crawling stance and rocking, recently. There have been times where I think she is about to start crawling, but then falls. We can just imagine how much we will be chasing her when she is walking!
She is so talkative. She literally shrieks with excitement over everything! She babbles continuously. She will be just like her daddy! 🙂
She laughs a laugh that melts our hearts. She loves when her daddy “bites” her cheeks. She starts laughing uncontrollably! It’s the cutest thing in the world.
She is a thrill-seeker. One day, I heard her squealing and saw her slapping her arms and legs on the floor. She had Rapunzel’s hair covering her face! I thought she couldn’t breathe, but once I pulled her hair off her face and saw her big smile, I realized she was having the time of her life!
She loves to observe and discover. She first discovered her toes around July 4th, and she is so fascinated with them. She stares at them, touches them, then eats them! LOL. Most recently, she discovered her tongue. She loves to stick her little tongue out, and it is the most adorable thing! She, also, is very observant. She hears a new noise, she stops and tries to figure out where it is coming from. She sees a new face, she stares at every inch of their face. This is all a new world for her and she is ready to explore it.
She is an adventurous soul. We love to live outdoors, explore a new city, try a new activity or a new food. We can already tell she loves to, as well. When we take her somewhere with us, her eyes light up and she soaks all the newness in. She has been trying all sorts of food. At first, she spits it out, but then after a few more tastes, she gobbles up the whole bowl! From fruits to vegetables (and even prunes!) she really is loving everything.
It’s overwhelming all the milestones she has hit in only half of a year! We love her to the moon!
I did a little backyard photoshoot to mark this occasion. Have a wonderful day!
