Dear Maci - 6 Months (4 days late)

I know, I should be ashamed for letting the blog go this long without updating, things have been a whirl-wind for me these days, but thats a post for another day.  Today is all about my beautiful baby girl, who is now SIX months old, I can't believe it!!!

Dear Maci,

You are 6 months old today. You had your shots and you were such a big girl, you only cried for a minute. You are drinking juice out of a sippy cup now (a nubby) if someone holds it for you. You haven’t quite gotten the hang of holding the handles just yet, but you love to play with it while sitting in your new highchair that your daddy brought home and surprised us with. You are drinking around 5 to 6 ounces every 4 hours, and eating 1 ½ to 2 jars of baby food twice a day (most of the time). You just moved up to the stage 2 foods this week. Your favorite so far is Corn and Sweet Potatoes and Hawaiian Delight. You usually take your last bottle around 7:00 and go to bed around 9:00. You are sleeping much better now; you usually sleep until 6:00am.

You had your first fever this month too, it stayed around 102 and 103 for 5 whole days. You were sick the whole time Aunt Connie was here visiting. I had to take you to the doctor and they stuck your finger. I cried a little, and you cried A LOT. You really felt bad.

You can sit up by yourself unsupported for about 2-3 minutes at a time, and you love to play in your bounce-a-roo. You like to bang your toys on things, and you are putting everything you can in your mouth. You are now giving kisses intentionally and you are hugging mommy and daddy with one arm. You even grabbed mommy and daddy’s neck at the same time the other night when daddy was holding you. You can play patty-cake on my hand when I start saying the rhyme. You are reaching, and rolling over both ways, and holding your head up so well now. You are getting to be such a big girl. I can’t believe all the things you are doing.

Daddy and I love you so much. Happy 6 month ( ½ year) birthday baby girl!!!!
