This Adventure, Our Life: Month 6

Month 6

Dear Bailey,
As I write this time I am having a harder time accepting that you are already 6 months!  Time flies little one, but I would not change the last 6 months for anything in the world.  You are an amazing little girl, do you know that?  You are very full of personality, so much more than last month even.  Your Daddy and I really enjoy your giggles, smiles, kisses, and you even started hugging us, the big bear type of hugs where you open your arms wide and wrap them around us!  We both agree that one of our favorite things in our day is you always, without a doubt give us a smile every single time we meet eyes with you.  It is truly amazing and we love that about you.  Your laugh to us is the most beautiful sound in the world.  You have been trying very hard to crawl, and everyday we say any day you will be moving everywhere!  You were sitting up last month, but this month you are sitting up with much more stability.   You can already spin 360 degrees (which your Dad is very proud of) and crawl backwards, we were very impressed with this one.

Your social interactions are amazing.  You love to smile at everyone who will look at you, you flash that cute smile and then we have another group of people around us.  Speaking of that, we can not have one outing to this day, where we do not have people stopping your Dad or I telling us how beautiful you are, ohh and telling us to buy a shotgun to ward off the boys later, much later we say (yes, we have had this comment from about 10 people, funny).  Your  expressions are changing and you are beginning to "voice" concern for your likes and dislikes.  You are very strong willed and know what you want at all times.  We find your tantrums quite amusing, for now.  You now know how to blow raspberries, and when you are bored, that is exactly what you do!!  Bailey, you talk up a storm, soo many new words... you still say Mom Maaa and you even reached for me as you said it, maybe a coincidence, but it melted my heart into pieces non the less.  You also started to say "b" words like baaaa, lots of "m" words, "n" words, and ahhhs!  We love to hear your little voice and we love to have little and big conversations with you.

You are growing big, yet you are still small.  I love that you still fit perfectly in my arms, but I think you always will have a huge spot there.  We started solids for 3-4 days, then stopped, it just was not time yet.  We have introduced you to water, we gave you a sippy cup which you kind of know how to use, but you much prefer a regular cup.  You enjoy taking drinks of Mom's water!  You continue to nurse like a pro, I enjoy that time with you.  You are cloth diapered and cloth wiped, everyday.  You are now fitting in 6-12 month sizes, although your pants are still more like a 3-6 month size.  I feel a little sad every time you change sizes, just a reminder again that you are growing up.  Do not grow up too fast our little baby.

Bailey, you love to be held, not just sometimes, but ALL the time.  We love holding you Bailey, we know this time is short, and you will not want to be held later (and if you do, we will always be here).  We try to encourage a lot of floor time, and you are practicing your many skills, you love toy balls.  This month you have actually grown to love toys, and playing.  You are grabbing at everything in your sight.  You are so curious about the world and many people have commented since you were born how alert you are.

It is really hard for us to believe that you are already 6 months, that you are halfway to being 1 years old.  Just 6 months ago you were in my belly, and we both were excited for you to be here.  It really does feel like you have always been with us, We do not know life without you anymore.  We have many thoughts and dreams for you Bailey, but we are trying to just enjoy you now, you are the most beautiful little girl.  Your Dad and I love you more than words can say.  We hope you know this, always.

We love you to the moon and back,
Daddy and Mommy
