Six Months of AWESOME

Last week Maggie turned SIX months.
While we certainly enjoy every month (every day, really) with our little gal, this was a really fun month of changes.

Events included:
- Her first two teeth
- Sitting on her own
- Her first ear infection
- Undergoing a LONGGGGG stretch of not sleeping through the night, which she thankfully broke at the beginning of this week
- Starting to smile and laugh on her own (without someone making her smile or laugh)
- She switched her bedtime from 10:30 to 7:30 (most nights...)
- Putting herself to sleep

This week she also has started taking at least one nap longer than 30 minutes. (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) That was my excitement in writing.

She continues to love to go outside, especially on walks and runs. (insert here blatant admiration and gratefulness for the inventor of the baby jogger). Fortunately, it has been a beautiful March, and we've been taking full advantage of the lack of snow.

She is constantly making us laugh with her funny faces and sounds. Everything goes in the mouth. (Hoping to start cereal sometime this week...)

I don't want to be overdramatic (ha!), but these have sincerely been the best six months of my life. Every minute. I wouldn't trade them for anything. Here are some pictures and moments (mainly for me to remember someday) of the past month:

Loves to be naked. Loves her feet. Loves covering herself (mainly her head) with blankets.

First attempt at the swing. As usual, no expression. Exactly what I would have expected her reaction to be.

Juicy Couture pj's (via TJMaxx clearance). Teaching her to appreciate the finer things at a young age. Also teaching her that she has a better wardrobe than either of her parents.

Exploring the wonders of Costco from a new perspective.

Love those rosy cheeks!!

Maggie the Giant

We went to see our new friend baby Stephen this morning. What a difference six months makes!! Maggie was even smaller than him when we brought her home. Amazing.

Oh, and in case you were wondering, that is Stephen's sock in Maggie's mouth. Not hers.

Buried alive

Recently Maggie has had a fixation with putting things over her face/head. This morning I went to check on her during her nap, and this is what I found...

Somebody call Dwayne Johnson

After four months of "teething," (note the quotes) we finally have a breakthrough!

Miss Independent

Even though it's hard to tell in the picture, she really is drinking from the bottle, and did so by herself for a good 5-10 minutes today! I think she was just happy to have something that she could put in her mouth that actually was supposed to be there...but she definitely knew what to do with it!
