Happy Half Year Birthday Autumn!

6 months today. wow. sometimes it seems you just arrived, while other times it feels like you have been here forever.

You have grown so much ! You started size 2 diapers this week. There are so many things you can do already-
  • grab
  • grasp
  • babble
  • giggle
  • pop things in your mouth
  • reach out
  • squeeze (our lips and noses)
  • smile
  • squeal
  • jump in the jolly jumper
  • roll over when you feel like it
  • hold your own bottle
  • eat with a spoon (to date; sweet potatoes, squash, carrots, apples, pears, bananas, rice cereal)
  • stick out your tongue
  • stand up with help
  • sleep through the night (nope.. not yet just seeing if you are paying attention)
  • sit without help (still occasionally tip over)
  • entertain mom and dad endlessly
  • make us smile without even trying
  • inspire us to be the best we can be

I can't believe you are six months old today. I think as you grow older we will acknowledge both your half and full birthdays. Happy Birthday- We love you, autumn.
