Look who is six months already!
One half of a year ago I was tired and nauseas and sick and counting the minutes until you arrived. And now, six months later, it's barely a memory and I'm overwhelmed with love and devotion and gratitude for you.
You laugh when you see yourself in the mirror. You are obsessed with any necklace or earrings I wear. You love to be the center of attention. You are 100% girl.
Atta girl! Join your Momma and eat your heart out.
You seem to really like your feet - maybe it's a sign of liking shoes someday, too! I sure hope so - between the two of us we'll have lots and lots to share. And, yes, it is cool to share clothes with your Mom, despite what any of your friends tell you.
You've finally moved into a size three diaper, and not necessarily because that's what fits you best, but because I ran out of size two's and had several boxes of size three's waiting.
Your six-month well visit showed you weighing 13 pounds 12 ounces (10%) and measuring 25 1/2 inches (50%).
You started sitting on your own this month, though you are usually so busy kicking and reaching and moving that you quickly topple and end up laying and wiggling to get what you want. Determined, very determined!
I love you, Annalyse Joy, and am thankful that you are my sweet baby girl.
