6 months

The baby turned 6 months old yesterday. One half of a year passed in what seems a blink. (insert all other appropriate cliches here from time goes so fast to I can't remember life without her)

Those cliches are all true. I guess that's why they're cliches.

She'll have her first taste of "solid" food today. "Solid" with the quotes as the cereal will be more milk than cereal the first few times. It's bittersweet, because this marks the time that she will begin to need me less and less. Already.

She'll also continue to develop into her own self and reveal herself to us more and more. We're so very lucky to have her.

Happy half-birthday Ms. D. I love every little piece of you.

SWOOOOON I'm in love. Six months is such a beautiful age and you have a beautiful beautiful girl. Try not to dwell on independence and what it means to you (I had a huge bout of that yesterday and it's too sad to dwell on).

She looks like the happiest six month old! I love, love, love that age. You can just see so much firing behind those eyes!

How did six months go by so quickly (probably because I'm getting more sleep than you). She is gorgeous. That smile makes me melt.

Awesome Mom said...

Awww! Those smiles are adorable. They grow up way too fast.

Great shots as always! That's so great you post them all.

We had a momentous occasion in our household today, too: someone pooped in the potty! We're on our way...

Such bright sparkly eyes! Precious!

You should make up a new cliche. Let's see. How about,

"Green penguins only fly to the East?"

Oh wait, I think I've used that before... ;)

@Guinevere Meadow That penguin cliche is one of my favorites! ; )

Thanks all for the compliments for Ms. D. I may be biased, but I think all of my kids are beautiful, supremely intelligent beings. I am lucky.
