This morning I woke up this morning at 6am when your Daddy came in to make sure I was getting up for the day. He always gives me a kiss goodbye and says “I love you” when he leaves for work. It’s important! When I looked over at you sleeping in the bed next to me, I realized that we were both laying in exactly the same position on the bed with the sheets kicked to our feet, and it nearly made me cry to think that I was blessed to have YOU in my life, to have YOU as my daughter. My gosh I love you.
Your Auntie Jaime and I were talking today about how we cannot believe you will be seven months old this weekend. It is just insane to think it has been that long (and that short?) of a time since you joined us. You are such an important part of our lives!
We are full on in summer mode over here, and this weekend was filled with pleasant evenings outdoors, 4th of July celebrations, and lots of time with family and friends. You love being a part of the action, and if we hold you facing in, you constantly are pushing away and off of us to look around. Same goes for your toys on the floor – you’ll sit for a bit just playing contentedly, but pretty soon you’re on your belly and 3′ away, checking out something else. It’s amazing to see you start moving around more (especially since you still refuse to roll the majority of the time!).
Also, you are SUCH a ham with people – I know I say this almost every week, but people constantly comment on how happy you are. Your big, gummy smile just lights up the room! You may not be the best napper or night time sleeper, but your time awake is spent being a happy and social baby, and I wouldn’t ask for anything different. We love you so much!
Playing “patty cake” with Nana Joan on the front porch when I got home from work.
Getting ready for bed with Daddy and showing off your Cardinals gear!

Decked out in red, white, and blue for your 1st Fourth of July celebration!
LOOOOVING your holiday meal. You ended up devouring your burger. It was cooked a perfect medium, and it is easily the food you have enjoyed most so far. 🙂 Carrots are still the least liked, and I don’t know if it’s because it’s pureed or because you just don’t like them. We shall see. 🙂
