Amelia is 6 months!!!

Dearest Amelia,

My, oh my.  We've made it 6 months.  Your HALF birthday!  It has flown by and, as time does, it will continue to do so.  I love you and am so proud of the sweet little girl you are!  

You are:
20.24 lbs
27 3/4 in

You started chewing on your toes, just like your brother did about this age.  You've also started playing a little shy game.  Daddy will look at you and you'll smile and bury your head.  Pretty adorable!

We left Oliver with Grammie and you came with us on a little trip.  It was so nice to spend time with just you!  

Your nicknames are still Little and Sister Girl.  And Oliver isn't calling you Mena anymore, which is kind of sad.  He also doesn't like certain people holding you.  He'll say, "Mommy, please hold Melia."  

You had some avocado at Grammie's and you seemed to like it!  Now that you're officially 6 months, we'll start giving you more and more "real" food.  Can't wait to see what you like!

You're actually a really good napper, already two long ones a day, usually.  We'll still working on getting you to sleep longer at night, but I sure love our time in those wee hours.  (You sleep just like Oliver did/does.)

You'll pretty much let anyone hold you!  And nurseries and childcare at shows are going well.  You're simply amazing, baby girl.  

YOU TOOK A PACI.  For about a day.  So, that was neat =)

"Just showing off my muscles, Mama!"

You're babbling and sometimes it sounds like MAMA!  You've also started throwing a fit if we take something away from you.  Ha!

This is how you like to do life.  Just look how yummy you are!  

In time, baby girl.

See?  Also, hotels usually mean you end up in our bed.  I do like it, but you're a wild woman and usually hit me and/or scratch me.  

 You are very difficult to change.  You are on a mission to get to where you need to be.

You're army crawling!!!  I can't believe it!  Oliver thinks it's awesome and so do we.  Although, too soon!!!

And you're starting to pick your knees up under you.  

Sweet girl.  I am overwhelmed with love for you.  We have quite the bond and I hope you always feel at home with me.  I love you THIS big and it gives you a hug.  And a kiss.  

May the stars always align for you.
