Six Months, So Soon

Amelia turned six months-old at 11:38 p.m. on July 30 and oh, so much has happened these past months. We can't believe how she's growing, changing and learning more and more each day about her little world.

To celebrate, Amelia and I went to a downtown outdoor cafe for lunch with some friends from our Mommy and Me group. We took Munchkin doughnut holes to celebrate. Sorry, no photos because we got soaked by a Florida afternoon thunderstorm.

As for milestones: Amelia is eating the basics and her favorites are (in this order): rice cereal, bannanas, avocado, carrots and peas. She still wrinkles her nose at sweet potatoes, just like her daddy. Next up: oat cereal. She's learning to sit on her own and she gets up on her hands and knees and rocks back and forth. We're sure crawling isn't far behind. And, of course, she continues to melt our hearts with her giggles and belly laugh. Most days, there just isn't enough time for all the kisses. She's the most kissable, lovable, huggable baby we know. She's happy and healthy. And she's all ours! We'll update her vital statistics next week when she goes to the doctor for her shots.

When they start rocking back and forth on their hands and knees you only have (maybe) a few weeks, before she will be taking off! :) Get ready Monica, it's so much fun! :) Love your BLOG!
