6 Months Old!

Dear Haven,

Half. A. Year.  It can't be!  I have loved every minute.  You are SO precious.  You get so excited when you see me or Daddy and just flail your arms and legs about with a huge grin on your face.  It's so cute.  Every once in a while you only want your Mommy, but most of the time you are really good when we pass you around.  B/c everyone wants to take a turn holding you, you know!  You are really into toys now.  You have this elephant who we recently named Petunia and you love to chew on her crinkle ears.  You love to chew on anything basically.  No matter what it is, it's going in your mouth.  Toes included!  You also recently discovered your tongue and like to chew on that too!  You are doing really well with solid food and you nurse super fast now.  Makes it a little easier when we are in a rush to get out of the house b/c you don't take as long anymore!  It's still a gamble every night whether you are going to make it all night or not.  But that's ok... I love the night-time snuggles getting you back to sleep.  You are so drawn to the TV, probably a little too much!  You are very interested in Copper, reaching for him and sometimes grabbing a handful of fur.  He doesn't mind and keeps coming back for more.  You are sitting up pretty good, but haven't quite mastered it yet.  Still a bit of a "round bottom" as Gammie likes to say.  You are really giggly now and love to be bounced around on our knee or in our arms.  I LOVE to hear you laugh.  It has to be the best sound in the world.  Unfortunately, I just can't get you on a schedule.  I actually sat down and did a spreadsheet to see if one was possible... but unfortunately with dance class being at different times every day, it's just not possible.  So you're on close to the same schedule every day, but it's never exactly the same.  All Mondays are the same, all Tuesdays are the same, etc. but it's a little different one day to the next.  But you are such a happy baby that I don't think you mind too much!  You're so easy and just go with the flow!  Your 6 month doctor appt was this morning.  You are 14 lbs 14 oz and 25.75 in long, that's the 26th% and 48% percentiles respectfully.  You are a petite little thing and so adorable!  Your thighs are pretty chunky now though and it's so cute!  Daddy and I are having an absolute blast with you.  We are so thankful that God blessed us with such a sweet baby girl.  You mean the world to us and I have a hard time remembering what we did before you!  We love you so much Haven Jane!  Happy half-birthday!
