six months

Monday, May 31st, 2010

Rosie turned six months old the other day. I had to pinch myself a little bit when I realized that. Time goes by so fast. Not only is she a watermelon of a baby, she is awfully adorable!

6 months

Sure, life has been chaotic since her arrival but I always say it’s controlled chaos (umm…sorta) but the past six months have also been filled with nothing but joy watching her (and her sister) grow.

I love going to get her in the morning and seeing her face light up with a big smile, kicking those little legs like crazy, making the cutest baby noises that a baby ever made.


She’s been sleeping a lot better at night (HALLELUJAH!), although she is still somewhat of a light sleeper. Even though she still sleeps in our room her sister squawking in the next room can wake her up. Most mornings she wakes up squealing and cooing (rather than immediately screaming for a bottle).

a quiet moment

Milestones: eating solids without a fight, rolling over from back to tummy, almost rolling from tummy to back, loving her jumparoo, starting to bully Lulu (definite jealousy starting), sleeping well. Still the loudest person in the house. Began to notice the cat. He’s in trouble very soon.

This is what happens you don’t pay explicit attention to a quiet (almost) 2 year old. Needless to say, she had to take a bath at Grammy’s house before we went home…

I started Rosie on cereal last week. I thought she’d be psyched to be eating “real” food, but if being psyched means clamping her mouth shut and flailing her arms around to knock the spoon out of my hand, then she LOVES it!

She’s definitely my kid…
