Half a year!

This past week we celebrated Addie's 6 month birthday. There are so many fun things to share, but so little time to share them! Adjusting to life with a baby has been a lot of work.  In addition to the sleepless nights and bank account damage - every jog or trip to Target has turned into an adventure. It has been the most joyous 6 months of our lives.

We love you baby girl. We love the face that you make when trying a new food.  We can't help but smile at you in your walker, taking the wood floors by storm...even when you strike a pinky toe.  Every toy you grasp ends up first in your mouth, then behind you. It is awesome the way that Mia makes you giggle. She will let you get just close enough for you to touch her then she will move.  And how adorable is it when she follows us into your nursery at night to check if you are asleep?  Your bottom left tooth popped through, you handled it so well that we didn't even know it was coming. Your crawl at this point is more of a faceplant with leg movement but you've mastered it! Of course anything that you aren't supposed to get into is the first thing that you go after whenever we set you down.

Your squeaks, squeals, and giggles are the most beautiful music to our ears.  Though you do cry sometimes, in the past month your cry has turned more into a whine.  How in the world did we get so lucky?  Even as we watch you learn to roll, eat and crawl; we pray for your future. We pray that you'll have a heart that desires the Lord. We've already started praying for your first day of school through your high school years. We are praying for your future husband and the children that you may someday have of your own.  Though at the same time, at this very moment, it is hard to believe that you will someday grow out of your bouncer and that those chubby little legs will be making laps around the kitchen island. 

Now before the tears that are streaming down my cheeks get out of control, here are some pictures. Precious baby girl, we love you.

Sitting like a pro!
I helped her stand, but once I got her up she was on her own.
Munching on dad's toe :)
Fun at the lake. Chair made by great-grandpa Neubauer.
The sweetest little eyes in the world.
Supper time is a favorite :)
Taking the kitchen by storm in the walker.
Sisterly love
Taking pictures before bed to send to daddy at work.
So glad these two get Tuesdays & Wednesdays to themselves at home.
