6 months

Oh, sweet Emma girl, how are you already half a year old? I still can't get over how much you've grown and changed in just 6 months. It's a good thing you're cute because you still haven't grown into the whole sleeping-through-the-night thing. I really had no clue I could function (barely!) on such a short amount of sleep. You sure do make up for it with squeals and giggles and big grins all day long.

You got to spend some time with Nana, Aunt Kates, and Jackson this month. Jackson sure taught you everything he knows (being 3 1/2 weeks older and all) because as soon as he left you started grabbing everything in sight and sitting up all by yourself. Nothing is out of your reach anymore. If you want it, you are going to get it.

At 6 months, Emma:

~you drool all.the.time
~you roll over and scoot all around
~you are starting to hold and play with your toys
~you can sit up
~you love to eat (so far: rice cereal, apples, peas, and squash)
~you can scream at the top of your lungs to show that you are happy or upset, although you usually do this when you are happy!
~you go to sleep between 7:30 and 8:00 every night
~you usually wake up 3 or 4 times during the night
~you like the swing at the park
~you don't have any teeth yet
~you adore Mason

And he adores you. When he saw us taking pictures of you, he went and got cow and giraffe so they could all get in on the action. The best part was when he said, "smile at the camera, cow."

We love you so much Emma. You definitely make our days (and nights) more exciting. It is such a joy to watch you and Mason interacting together. We are so very blessed.
