Half of a year is a long time to be alive….and yet…it has gone all too fast.
Today is a special day for two reasons: 1) it is Bea’s half birthday and 2) it is MG’s original due date 3 years ago.
This month we have crossed so many milestones:
-sitting up (kinda)
-solids (she’s tried oatmeal, bananas, avocados, and pumpkin and prefers to feed herself)
-rolling all over, and with purpose
-getting up on all fours with determination in her voice; rocking and getting into a position to crawl
-and working on fine motor skills, bringing objects to her mouth with a very definitive grasp
All of these milestones have proven true what the old wives’ say: less sleep. When she wakes in the night it’s not cries of hunger I hear, but talking. When I go in to check on her, she is usually rolled over with a big smile on her face. Fortunately, nursing usually sends her back to sleep but not before spending a few minutes just smiling at each other in the dark
Speaking of smiling, her social skills are blossoming too. Anyone who makes eye contact is rewarded with a big gummy smile and perhaps a velocoraptor growl of excitement.
