6 months!

How is my little girl half a year old already?! I kind of had an epiphany yesterday. She won't be a baby forever. Obviously, I knew that but it really hit me yesterday. She won't need to be fed by me forever. She won't need to be rocked to sleep forever. She won't always think me saying peekaboo is the funniest thing in the world. Gah...I'm about to start crying. She's going to grow up. She IS growing up. I'm so excited to experience every stage of her life with her. I'm excited to go to the park and the zoo and let her run around. I'm excited for her first day of school (kind of...haha). I'm excited to buy school supplies with her every year. I'm excited to watch her become a big sister (many years in the future). I'm kind of excited to go through middle school and high school with her...haha. I'm excited for homecomings and proms and dress shopping. But I want to soak up every baby minute with my 6 month old. Her little gummy smile. Her sweet baby smell. Her crinkled nose when she squeals, smiles, and laughs. They way she yells at the top of her lungs and thinks it's hilarious. The way she is so happy to see us in the morning that her smile literally reaches her hands and toes...she just shakes with excitement. Ugh...I love this little girl so much!

The official 6 month photo. She loves those feet :)

This one way my favorite but she's covering up the 6 month sticker

Easily distracted. Our diplomas are hung on the wall above her and she wanted to just stare at them or out the window instead of looking at me.

She's growing and learning every day and I'm so thankful that I get to be here with her to watch all the changes going on.  It's a hard job (what job isn't?) but it's so rewarding! 

And tonight we're celebrating with cake! Because Mommy forgot to buy eggs when she bought cake mix so we didn't get to have cake on her actual half birthday. Such is life...

Mommy and daddy love you little girl! You bring so much joy to everyone around you :)
