Lily, how are you 6 months old?!

Darling Lily,

You're 6 months old today! Both daddy and I think you're growing up entirely too fast...your sister, however, would like you to speed it up so she can play with you. You do your fair share of playing together, but Mia has some big plans for the two of you. Until then, she'll stick to pat-a-cake and just making you laught with her funny faces or dancing all crazy ;)

You got your first and only two teeth right about 4 months. Since then, you've been working on a couple, but they haven't popped out yet. Since you're busy teething, that pretty much means you're usually soaked with drool...and your daddy and I are usually soaked, too! You talk a LOT and love to sing. Oh, and you screech at the top of your lungs just to hear yourself, then you start laughing.

Rolling to your side is how you like to hang. It was perfect this Halloween...you were a mermaid, and you just relaxed like one. Too cute. You get on your hands and knees thrusting yourself forward pretty regularly, but your primary mode of locomotion is rolling or spinning or pivoting...I'm not exactly sure what you do. I can put you down on the floor and within seconds you're facing the other direction and 5 feet away! You love pushing yourself along with your arms. That means you go backwards a lot. We often find you stuck under the sofa with a big smile on your face.

You've insisted on eating food. Mia LOVES feeding you! (you've got an awesome big sister there!) You can eat a whole bowl full. Yes, you do get super messy...a messy mutt is what Mia calls you. Mealtime buys you a ticket to the tub. You and Mia love to bathe together. You in your bumbo and Mia trying hard to resist pouring water on your head. Water is your friend. Splashing and squealing are your thing.

You spent you first long weekend with your Nana and Pawpaw a couple of days ago. Daddy and I hit New Orleans for a little vacation, while you and Mia lived it up with your grandparents. You did great and were so happy to see us. We missed you so much!

Lily, you're a happy kid who's always ready to play...or eat ;) We love you so much!

Love,
Mama
