6 Months

My Love Bug!

I think this has been your most developmental month! I feel like you have hit so many little milestones it has been so much fun. This month you took your first steps, that was crazy, now that is all you want to do. You learned to sit up from a crawl/laying down position. You have gotten better at eating food, you don't make quite the mess anymore. You are also a huge chatter box, you just love to hear your own voice. You can also reach the floor in your exercauser so you love to cruise around in circles from station to station.

You love to clap & it is so cute to watch. Your dad had taught you that whenever you do something like give kisses, stand up, eat your dinner that you clap in excitement. You have also learned to say YAY!! when you clap. You are such a funny little girl. You truly love to mimic whatever we do. My favorite is that you have learned to give kisses & I can't get enough of them!

You had your 6 month doctor visit & you now weigh 16lbs 5oz. That is in the 75% for your age, I thought you would be even higher since you are so chubby...which I love. You are 21" also in the 75% & are in the 90% for your head. To me your head seems small but maybe that is because your body is bigger. The doctor says you have big head because you have a big brain :) She said you are extremely healthy & developing fast for your age, about 2 months ahead. Please slow down!! You also had 2 more shots & you did not even cry, you are such a tough cookie!

It was Papi's 50th Birthday this month so we had fun celebrating him. The entire family went to dinner at a yummy Italian restaurant & of course you got lots of attention. You got to sit in a high chair for the first time & you thought you were such a big girl. It was fun to watch you stare at all of the people in the restaurant & smile at them.

We found out that my great friend Brittany is prego!! I am beyond excited for her & Rashad, they are going to be fantastic parents!! It is going to be so much fun to see her where I was a year ago. I am blessed to be able to share this journey with her & her family. I go back & forth on if I want her to have a girl so you can be best friends like her & I or if I want her to have a little boy so you can have another future husband to choose from. :) No matter what I know that she is going to be a beautiful pregnant mommy & celebrate this new journey they are embarking on!

Your favorite words right now are Yay, Gaga (Dada) it is so sweet to hear you call for him, baba, momma & hi. I love that you are starting to understand what those words mean & who mom & dad are. Its funny when Daddy walks out of the room you just start yelling Gag...gaga...gag!! Then when you are sad or hungry you cry momma. Such a sweet little girl!

You and your uncle Joe have a funny relationship. There are days when you are totally fine around him & then other times you are scared to death of him. The other day we were at Papi & Grandma's house & you were playing the drums with Uncle Joey & were having so much fun...
...then you realized who was sitting there and...
Uncle Joe leaves for Alaska in a few weeks & we will miss him greatly. We look forward to his return when you can spend more time with him, he loves you greatly!

This was our attempt at getting a picture of all of the grand kids, funny!

Always smiles!

Hallee know that your daddy & I are so proud of the little girl you are becoming. We say often how much joy you bring us & how there is very little you do that upsets up. I have to say the only thing I wish is that you would sleep through the night. That is going to be what we work on this next month because I know that you can do it. We love you so much sweetie!
