Hello Six Months!

Luciana the days are going by so fast! You want very badly to be mobile. When you are on your belly and you want a toy that is out of reach you place your forehead on the rug and press with your toes until you lift your bum off the floor! It's so funny! You also scoot around in circles. Saturday is going to be a big day for you, trying your first taste of rice cereal. Daddy has been in Denver all week and since he won't fly home until tomorrow afternoon, we wouldn't want him to miss out on the action! Ha! Right now you are 100% breastfed. You eat, um.... snack twice during the night. I honestly can't even remember what a whole nights sleep feels like. But, you know what? Those moments after you've nursed and just before I place you back down in your crib are some of the greatest joys in my life. The way you still completely need me. It is effortless to love you all the time baby girl.
You adore Greyson these days and watch his every move.

I'm pretty sure the feeling is mutual. Exhibit A:

He wants you close by, no matter what he's doing....
Bedtime with you is so easy! It seems you have set your own time too, between 7-7:15 every night. You have always been such a still little sleeper, but lately I have found you all over the crib! This morning you had your head raised and were trying to peek over your bumper. Thinking we might be lowering that mattress soon....
You take a wonderful early morning nap, but your afternoon one is all over the board.
You love the bath and the sound of water! You are easily excitable, but startle easy too. You love your exersaucer, and johnny jumper. You are quite the jumping bean these days! You have also become miss grabby hands extraordinaire! You want anything in your sight. Next week you have your six month baby well check. We are excited to see how much you weigh. Two weeks ago you were weighing 13 lbs. 10 oz. You are rapidly outgrowing 3-6 month clothing.
Don't worry baby girl, mama has you covered.....

You are babbling more and more, but will only say "ma ma ma" when tired, fussy or when you want to be picked up. Yes, you could say you have me wrapped. I love how easy it is to make you happy. All you need is for me to pick you up and all is right in the world. If only this could always be the case. I love you and think you are absolutely the most beautiful girl in the world.

Lulu your first six months have been amazing, we can't wait to see what you have in store for us next. It's gonna be a great year!

I didn't realize your little one is 6 months! We turn 6 months tomorrow! When is Lucianna's birthday? She is just gorgeous! I love following your blog and seeing the similarities in our girls. OH and where on earth do you get her cute bows? I need to get us some! Hugs!

What awesome pics! I love the one of Luciana in her crib..so sweet. I don't think she has enough clothes. HA! I wish I had that many clothes!!! They grow way too fast!

This is one of my favorite posts! Your sweet words about Luciana melt my heart. The first 3 pictures are some of my favorite so far! I want a copy of the first one of her in the baby legs! Happy 6 months baby girl! I hope your rice cereal gives you a full belly so you (and your mama) sleep all night long!

Jessica said...

I just want to squeeze her! I love all these picture! Tara, she looks just like you!

Going to send you an email... be looking for it :-)

She is just the sweetest! And I LOVE her closet - one of my favorite parts of the day is picking out what Lauren gets to wear. A little girls closet is better than a candy shop any day!
