Six Months

First of all, can we just take a moment to be proud that I'm writing this while AG is actually still 6 months old? 

Thank you.  Thank you so much.

Her six month doctor's appointment was on Tuesday, and girlfriend's making her move up the weight charts....woo hoo!  She weighed 15lbs and 8oz, and was 26.5 inches long.  Her head was 44cm. in circumference.  (Does anyone else feel that this is a weird measurement?  I mean, who wants to know that they have the big-headed kid?  Or the freakishly small-headed one?  And I feel that I can comment on that, because I AM the big-headed kid, who cannot wear hats unless they are adjusted to the last notch.  Or unless they belong to giants.)

Moving on......

AG is in that fun "golden age" that everyone talks about.....she is super smiley and giggly, and literally as sweet as pie.  (I love that phrase, btw.  Mmmmm, pie).  She actually allows me to feed her some oatmeal cereal now, instead of spitting it out like a mini-diva.  She likes to wave her hands around, put her feet in her mouth (charming), and say "da da da da da da." 

To which I generally respond, "ma ma ma ma ma."

She grabs for everything, tries to roll over when I'm changing her, and apparently wants to try my coffee every morning.  She is FASCINATED with my cell phone, and loves to watch the Praise Baby DVDS.  (Which John likes to call my "electronic babysitter."  Which I find slightly un-amusing). 

She loves Jackson already, and reaches out for him anytime she's close enough.  Unfortunately, Jackson currently prefers to ignore the little muchkin.  I'm thinking that'll change when she's slipping him cheerios on the sly. 

She's getting her SECOND TOOTH.....holy cow.  She takes 2 naps, and has 4 feedings a day.  She goes to bed at 7:30pm and wakes up at 8am. 

And I cry tears of happiness and joy.

I can't believe she has gone from this:


.....to this.........



And now to this......



(Yes, we DO take large amounts of photos in the car seat. What's that?  It takes away from her Easter dress?  Surely smocked dresses and orange polyester are a fashionable combo?)

I literally don't think I can love her any more...and then I do.  Here's to the next 6 months!!

I think I love her just as much and though Reid is a charmer I think Brooks is going to like younger girls and fight for her! I'm so glad you are enjoying her so much - it goes sooooo quick as you always hear so soak it up! And yes, I think orange and anything works if you are as pretty as AG.
