Happy Half Birthday Graycen!

I really can’t believe our little baby is 6 months old already. Every day she amazes us more and more. She is now sitting – unassisted, rolling over, laughing, smiling, babbling, blowing bubbles, playing by herself, eating baby food AND sleeping through the night. It’s so hard to believe that it was just 6 months ago that she was born. I was watching tv last night when I stumbled upon a “Little People, Big World” marathon on TLC. It made me remember my “labor day” I was actually watching a marathon of the show on Labor Day when my water broke and my labor actually started. I must say, it brought back all of the emotions from those few days of labor, delivery and recovery. The newness of every thing. It made me cry. We are so blessed to have this bundle of joy! I look forward to the next 6 months and the rest of her life! She is so beautiful and I still find it hard to believe that she is really ours, sometimes. Here’s to the next 6 months – can’t wait for the one year mark – boy, will I be emotional then! At her 6 month appointment last Tuesday she measured in at 21 pounds, 13 ounces and 27.25 inches tall! Off the chart in both categories!
All of the sleepless nights, super early mornings, blow-out diapers, screaming from gas and/or teething pains, crabby faces, being late and numerous other frustrations are so worth it as soon as I see her adorable, smiling face. I’ll be crabby, myself, when she blows some bubbles at me – it’s as if she knows and that is her way of getting me to forget all about my frustration and smile. She’s so wonderful.
