Caroline Grace {6 Months Old}

Caroline Grace,
In the blink of an eye you are 6 months old. It feels like it was just yesterday that we brought you home from the hospital. This month has absolutely been our favorite yet. Your personality continues to light up the room and your giggles melt me into a puddle. You truly are the smiliest baby! 
Every morning daddy scoops you up out of your crib and brings you to bed with us for about an hour before we get up for the day. Those snuggles are the most treasured moments of the day. You are a snuggler and I hope you never grow out of it.
We thank God every day that you are happy, healthy and that you are ours! We couldn't be more in love with you, sweet Caroline.


6 Month Highlights:
  • Still in size 1 diapers. I think our "stay little forever" wish is coming true! I'd guess you're around 13.5 pounds, maybe. 
  • We retired your wubanub and soothies but still use MAMs at bedtime.
  • You can sit up unassisted and have no interest in crawling yet.
  • You love to say "mmmmm" and "ba ba" but haven't quite put the two together for "mama". Most of the time though you just blow bubbles, babble and smack your lips.
  • You are now obsessed with cups! You love to drink out of the side of our cup so much that we decided it was time to get you your own sippy cup. 
  • You're starting to become uninterested in your milk (7 ounces/5 bottles a day) and are so distracted during feedings. However, you love oatmeal and purees you scarf them down with no problems.
  • You are the smiliest baby ever and were such a ham for school pictures that the photographer featured your photo at daycare for her advertisements.
  • You're starting to reach for us to pick you up. (serious heart melter)
  • This month we celebrated your first Halloween, took you to Blowing Rock and had our first {of many} family photo shoots. 
Let's take a look back at the last 6 months...
