Baby V was six months old on Monday. She is growing so fast.
She is the brightest, happiest baby I have ever seen….and I am not just saying that because I am her mommy. She is getting a reputation for always smiling. People at church come up to me all the time and comment on how happy she is.
She loves books. She loves to nurse.
She loves our dogs. (She loves to nurse.)
She loves going outside. She loves her daddy. She loves her brother. She loves her babysitter. She loves our priest. (She loves to nurse.)
She loves playing with gourds at the kitchen table. She tries to feed herself with a spoon, if allowed. She cries for food she is not allowed to have.
She rolls to go places. It is hilarious to watch. She takes a toy with her and rolls until she can’t roll any further. Tonight, she got stuck under the piano.
She wakes up smiling. She goes to bed smiling. She tries to hug her brother when he comes close enough. She hides her head in my shoulder when she feels shy, and peeks out sideways.
And did I mention she really, really, really loves to nurse???
Happy six month birthday, little girl.
Here are a few pictures from the past week. We’re usually not into the super girly-girl stuff, but this dress was just too cute not to include in six-month pictures!
