Wow. That was fast. It’s already been 6 months. I know I say it a lot, but it feels like you just joined our family, and it feels like you’ve been here forever. I think you’ve always been in our hearts, maybe that’s why?
It’s been quite the monumental month. You’ve started eating real food. Straight to the green bean you went! You’ve also had some purees, too. You are having a hard picking up food and getting it to your mouth in smaller pieces. And, well dinner isn’t always bigger pieces. Mommy decided instead of following rules of one way or the other, we are going to do what works for us and for you. After all of that grunting and then helping you get the spoon full of yogurt in your mouth, you were much happier. So, a little more work for a while but we are going to mix things together and make you and your tummy happy!
On July 26th, I noticed your first tooth. Seriously? How could you already have one? Days later the second one popped up. You used to give me the sweetest kisses aka suck on my face, then you stopped. Well, you did it the other day, and I quickly realized that couldn’t go on. Ouch!
You grab your toys, you can sit for a short while on your own and even reach for toys further away from you. I don’t remember the last time you went in the swing.
You love your sisters and they love you. They think it’s hilarious when you grab their hair and pull it. Coincidentally, you think it’s pretty funny, too.
You are one happy baby. Even when you get tired, you just let me know you want me to pick you up with a couple squeaks and you are good to go. You are also a chatter box too. You put your tongue on your teeth and make all sorts of consonant noise. I could really eat you up. This is really when the fun stages kick in. You are away more, have personality, and can’t go anywhere to get into trouble!
It’s amazing how quickly you change and grow. And yet, your features are so similar to what you were in mommy’s tummy just a couple months ago. I tried to get the same shot of you, but you are just like your sisters (and me) and have your own ideas. So, I went for two for one.
babyetch has done something really cool. They took your 3D ultrasound picture and etched it into this cool crystal light. I look at it and I see you, just a little smaller. You still like to have your feet by your head. And, sure enough your toes look just like daddy’s, as predicted. You still have that cute little nose and you have that hair, too! I didn’t think you could possibly be born with hair.
The LED lights are super bright and really take me back to the ultrasound room with daddy and your sisters. It has me remembering watching you move around, and stick out your tongue (now you do it when you are eating). Your sisters like looking at it too because it reminds them of the time you were in my belly. It’s just really special because I don’t have the ultrasound images displayed but this is a really unique way of having it out.
Right now, mommy has this in her room so I can look at it, but I’m thinking you will be getting it soon as a night light. I know it’s really for me, but I think it will be special to show to you when you are a little older!
Happy first half birthday! So excited to see what the next half holds.
