Where does the time go? You are more than half a year old now. Eek! You are getting more advanced and developing into a little toddler with each passing second. This was a big month for you in terms of growth.
You are eating 3 meals a day. Breakfast includes fruit & cereal. Lunch is pasta & veggies. Dinner is some sort of meat & veggies. Plus four 6oz bottles throughout the day. You L.O.V.E. food. You also love grabbing for your bottle and basically drink it yourself these days.
You can fully sit up on your own now. You army crawl forward, crawl backwards, and twirl in circles. You enjoy a little cat/cow yoga posing as well as the pialtes plank move. At Gymboree, you like to hold hands with Noah, grab Ethan's butt, and steal Matthew's mom's iPhone. You play maraca's with Ali, Alyssa, & Savennah. Sort of like a girl band ;)
Your babbling is off the charts as you constantly talk from morning until night. Saying things like baba, dada, iya, eee, and *momma*. You are working so hard to make more sounds that you often grunt loudly. I get a huge kick out of it.
You had several noteable events this month. First, you completed your first swim course. A real fish like your Aunt Kendahl. Kicking and scooping and blowing bubbles. You played on the kick board and noodle often pretending to be on the lazy river with mommy.
You enjoyed your first St. Patty's Day by attending the White Plains parade with mom & dad. You were all geared up in Irish attire.
You also attended your first funeral for Ms. Maita Blume (Abbi's mom). You met her when you were only 9 days old. She thought you were the sweestest little thing. At her funeral, you were able to bring smiles to our dear friend Abbi while she was struggling with the loss of her mother. The circle of life displayed beautifully.
You are quite the model. Two photo shoots took place this month. One at Janie & Jack and one with our favorite male photographer Roy. You still rock the serious look at times, but you aren't shy with your smile when the camera starts flashing.
You think it is hilarious when I tickle you with my hair. You giggle, giggle, giggle with excitement. You also find your big brother Beaumont to be funny. Whenever he comes near you, you start chuckling. Then you grab his fur or tail and smile a big smile. Poor guy just takes the abuse!
And you know what "give mommy a hug" means as you wrap your little arms around my neck and open mouth kiss my face. Usually it also includes a tight gripping of my hair and scratches on my neck, but I love it just the same.
Cheers to another fun month ahead baby girl!
