6 one, Half a dozen the other

It's hard to believe, but our little 6lb girl is now 6 months old! She's more fun each day: laughing and giggling, wiggling around on the floor (we're thankful she's not crawling... yet!), wrinkling up her nose when she laughs, saying all kinds of "words", playing with toys and learning to sit up by herself.  Time really does fly!  People said it would, but I didn't think it would go by this fast.  6 more months and she'll be 1.  

I have a blast being a stay-at-home mom!  Crying and whining 
get on your nerves, but who could have a better job than watching a child learn so many new things, getting to observe the foundations of life's lessons almost 24-hours a day, rejoicing in each new milestone and dreaming about what is to come?  We already know she's going to be a smart one.  I mean, look at her daddy. :-)

If nothing else, she can make her way through life with her good looks.  I know every mom thinks their baby is the cutest thing ever, but really... who could resist this face?  And those 
cheeks?  Not to mention the blue eyes!

I also have to mention a quick thanks to Aunt Jodie for the cute Heidi britches.  All she wanted was a niece so she could buy her ruffle-butt pants, so we delivered, and she fulfilled her promise of getting Heidi some... with her name on them!  Too bad we can't pass those down.

A few quick videos since it's been a while.  Heidi is learning to play by herself a little bit, and loves any toy that makes noise or sings.  She also loves to talk to herself in the mirror, and thinks she's pretty cute.  We'll have to work on the vanity issue and teach her that true beauty is on the inside.


  1. She is just so cute!! One of these days I'll have to road trip it out there and meet this precious little girl!

  2. Those cheeks are absolutely delectable :-) She is a cutie!
