Six Months

Dear Laina Rose,
I cannot believe you are six months old already!  Where has the time gone?!  Here's what you've been up to lately:
  • You eat every three hours still but have added Puffs, cereal, fruits and veggies into your diet.  You think you're really big stuff when we put you in your highchair!
  • You weigh 15 lbs. 15 oz. and are in the 50th percentile for weight
  • You are 24 1/2 inches long and are in the 10th percentile for height
  • You are such a good sleeper!  All you need is your pacifier and to be swaddled tightly and you're out like a light!
  • You wake up from every sleep with a big smile on your face.  I treasure every one.
  • You have found your voice and babble at your brother and sisters
  • You are especially enthralled with Cole, who can make you laugh at any moment just by giggling with you
  • You have been sitting up for about a month now and you practically refuse lay back to play
  • You have a smile that lights up the room.  Today at your check-up, you were smiling at everyone in the waiting room, the nurses and your doctor.  I can't even count how many people called you Miss Smiley today!
  • You are recognizing us as your mommy and daddy and we are LOVING it!  I think you save your most special smiles for us.  :)
We love you, Laina!  I can't wait to see how you grow and change in these next six months - but am still praying they go by a bit slower than the last!
