6 Months old!!

Guess who just turned 6 months old?!!

We went to Nana's church on her half birthday. Little Miss was all dressed up for the occasion. She had to be though....the last time she was there, she was the star of the Christmas Cantata, playing Baby Jesus.

"Happy Half Birthday to Me!!"

Our Princess

She looks so much like her Daddy to me in this picture.

Of course, another month goes by and I have to take the monthly picture with the bear. She wasn't quite ready to cooperate. But she gave in to my begging.

"Hey, it's you again."

"Please, no more pictures!"
Dear Abby:

Oh sweetheart. It seems like it was just yesterday that we were bringing you home from the hospital. And now, you are 6 months old. I'm so happy that you are a happy, healthy baby. But I'm sad that time has flown by so fast.

You've been doing such a great job at sleeping in your big crib. You still wake up every once in a while, but we are so proud of you. Oh and your laugh is Amazing! I could sit and listen to it all day. And yes, I will do whatever it takes sometimes just to hear you giggle. You eat your rice cereal now, you are not crazy about it, but you'll do it for me. I'm sure we'll learn tomorrow that we can start feeding you baby food now. I'm excited for you, but sad for me. Before I know it, you'll be feeding yourself, then picking out your own food, then cooking for yourself...seriously...I can't handle this. You are growing up WAY too fast!

You can blow bubbles, although you forget how to every once in a while. You give the best kisses in the world. You'll grab my hair with one hand and my neck with the other and slobber all over my face. It's great! You recognized your Daddy's voice tonight on the phone. You got so excited and started kicking your feet and grinning from ear to ear. We went for a walk tonight and you talked to me the whole way. I hope that you continue to do this forever. I'm yours sweetie....you can talk to me anytime you want.

Oh my growing sweet girl! I love you more than I can describe! I'll go for now. Happy Half Birthday my girl!!! - love, your Momma

So you know I'm crying now. Such a sweet letter to sweet Abs. I love how you describe her kisses!! And girl - you can be honest with her about her nighttime sleeping challenges. She can handle it. ;-) It really is such a sweet letter. :)

And the photos - girl. I especially like how she's showin' re camera some LEG in the crib! And that very last one is precious! Well, they're all precious, but you know what I mean. :)
