Six months!

Happy half birthday, Reese!  You're officially six months old today!

What is my six month girl up to?  Well, lets see... You're still sleeping very well & you go to bed earlier & earlier these days.  Daycare kicks your butt & you're passing out by nearly 7pm & you're normally fast asleep by 7:30.  You sleep about 11-12 hours a night & it seems you're constantly napping during the day.  You stay up for about two hours at a time during the day & then it's time for you to sleep again.   So, basically your day is wake, eat, play, sleep & on & on & on again!

You're eating solids like a champ & have tried apples, bananas, peas, sweet potatoes, butternut squash, prunes, spinach & you'll be trying carrots this week.  You eat your fruit or veggie mixed with cereal twice a day & drink 5 6-7oz bottles of breast milk a day.

You are a rolling fool & becoming more & more mobile by the day.  We put you on your blanket & before we know it, you've made your way across the room!

You are still the easiest, happiest, smiliest baby ever & no one could look at you & not smile back.  Getting you to smile is a very, very easy task!

You are a little stinker who has many, many blowouts.  This weekend was a real doozie & I did not appreciate the horrific mess you left me as my Mother's Day present!  We stripped your outfit & you had to be immediately washed in the sink. You probably have about three-four blowouts per week.  How can such nastiness come out of that beautiful package?!

This week at daycare you'll be transitioning to the baby vs. the infant side of the room.  Sniff, sniff... my little girl is growing up so quickly!

When you get excited, you kick your legs like a wild woman & flap one arm up & down.  If you're holding something in your hand, I have to be careful that you don't whack yourself in the head.  

You love our pets & just sit & smile at them.  Stella didn't love you last week when you grabbed a fist full of her hair!  When she yelped, you started to cry.  Speaking of crying, you're very sensitive & cry whenever someone else is crying, especially your brother.  It's so sweet, but so sad at the same time.

We continue to enjoy the heck out of every second we spend with you!  You are such an absolute joy & we are so blessed to have you in our lives!  Happy half birthday, Reesey Cakes!
