So Big

Our little Clara is growing up. Today Clara Rose is 6 months old. I can’t believe it. It seems like just yesterday we brought her tiny little self home-all bundled with blankets. That teensy little 19 7/8ths inch, 6lb 12oz baby girl is now a full 26 inches long and 15lbs and 5 oz. And where has the time gone.

She has since sprouted 2 teeth (another on the way very shortly), learned to turn over, hold a bottle and sit up without help. We are about to begin on a journey of solid food via baby-led weaning (which Mommy is quite excited about). She’s got to be the happiest baby on earth though. She doesn’t cry except when she’s hungry or teething. She laughs and smiles often and she LOVES being close to people. She’s the hit of the daycare.

It’s hard to imagine just how much she’s changed in these last 6 months. She seems so big now from when we brought her home. I can hardly remember those days (I remember the nights well enough :P). She’s thriving and a joy and I couldn’t be happier.

In 6 months time we’ll be celebrating her first birthday in DisneyWorld. I can’t wait to see what the next 6 months brings for us…

Happy Six Month Birthday!!!!! So exciting! And to have things planned for the first birthday in Disneyworld? WOW! :-) Things seem as though she is doing absolutely wonderful and growing and thriving and learning a ton each and everyday!

Has daycare gotten better for you and no more pressure to dictate her feedings? And adjusted to working and spending quality time with her when you can? :-) So very exciting all the adventures you have coming up!

BTW- um, where are the six month b irthday photos??? :-) WE want to see how much she's grown too!!!!
