happy six months, my love

Happy 6th months, my love. I am floored that you are already half a year old. It seems like yesterday we were overwhelmed with anticipation just wanting you to get here. You are one precious little girl.


You are now sitting up very well. Every once and a while you will still crash and burn such as last night when you did so and donked your noggin on the laptop. Uh-oh!


You started "crawling" backwards, really scooting. Your man Reed and cousin Brooks did the same thing so no worries. You will get the forward thing sometime soon. In the meantime, you have been getting a bit frustrated when your intentions are to head towards a toy and you just end up further and further away in a backwards pursuit.



Was Ada one of the last babies on earth to receive an exersaucer? Possibly. We had good intentions on the delay. Those things are expensive! Hopefully Ada will appreciate our frugality now so that we will be able to pay for her college in the future :) So close to buying one at a consignment sale a couple of weeks ago, I am so happy for second guessing that decision. Tonight as a happy six month birthday present, we found a brand new one for the exact same price, $40!!! So this version does not have all the bells and whistles, but Ada seems to enjoy it nonetheless.

Ada, you are so very loved and I hope you always know that.

As always, really adorable pictures. She does look like she LOVES her exersaucer.

Happy 6 months sweet girl! Wow... time has flown so much. It does seem like yesterday that we were both pregnant. Now I have a very soon to be one year old and you have a 6 month old! Oh my goodness, I love to see the development, but I do wish it would all slow down just a little. My favorite pic is the one of Ada on you (at least I think it is you). :)

Thank you so much for the taco recipe. It sounds really good and looks super easy. Easy adn fast dinners are always my favorite!!! I am still loving my hair and that is a big thing for me. It is so easy to do and for the most part it is still cute at the end of the day. That says a lot when I have a daycare 5 days a week and am pretty much exhausted by the end of the day. PS if you are making Ada's food, I made Charli's food and used the book "Super Baby food". If you don't have it already check it out. I loved it.
