6 of one, half a dozen of another...
months that is...
miss baby is 6 months old. half way to that first year mark. it's going way. too. fast. i know that sounds cliche' but there are times when i look at her and get a panicked feeling like i need to stop time and truly enjoy her in that moment. etch it in my mind. there is a part of me that mourns our "baby years" are in their last go-round.
she had her well child check up yesterday and she is weighing in at 17lb 12oz (85%) and 27 3/4" long (95%)
i would have to say that she has a little bit of all three of her sisters. resembling her oldest sister the most, similar hair to miss j and she has dd #2's eyes. yet she is all her own. it is amazing to me how creative God is. each of our girls is uniquely themselves but yet we see similarities that makes it obvious they are sisters.
big things this month:
~ rolling allllll over.... she is mobile. time to be diligent about baby-proofing again (ya know some day i will be able to actually decorate my house, like my coffee table and end tables... sigh. but the reality is that i am in no hurry. it just creates more things to dust anyway)
~ can sit up by herself. well, kinda. she can for a bit but i don't trust it to just sit her on the floor and walk away as she will topple over and bonk her head.
~ has her first tooth! she was kinda irritable and clingy for a few days and had a super runny nose... low and behold that first little pearl appeared :)
~ she has officially moved into her own room for naps and everything (no more swing). Despite all my visions of having to run upstairs 20 thousand times a day and night to comfort her and give her pacifier back to her she has proven me wrong. she loves her crib, she LOVES the quilted wall hanging my mom made that hangs above her crib, she likes her own space i think. i think in the few weeks she has been in her own room we have had to go up once during the night. she has also turned into a tummy sleeper.
~ dd #2 can get her to giggle like no one else. i mean big belly laughs. she just loves her and thinks everything she does is so funny. :)
