Dear Ida {month 6}

Dear Ida,

I know, I know, you are closer to 7 months then you are to 6 months.  But I do always take your picture and jot down what you are doing at the month mark.  It just takes longer to sit down and put it all on here. 

At 6 months you are rolling over and continuing to get sturdier sitting by yourself.  You grab at everything and celebrate by waving in the air whatever you manage to get in your hands.  Your vocals are through the roof and you are in no way concerned about being heard over your 2 big sisters.  Baby girl you are loads of entertainment!  Growling, squealing, yelling, blowing raspberries...I can only imagine when words get thrown in the mix.

I am holding tight to every moment.  I know from experience the 6th month is a pretty big turning point.  Halfway through your first year.  The first 6 months have been filled with watching you gain rolls and squish and smiles and laughs, movement and strength and I know the next 6 are going to be a whirlwind of first teeth, first food, first mobility, and first words.  So much happens, so many changes, but there is so much good in store my dear. 

But right now, I am going to continue to be thrilled every time I get to wake up to your full face gummy smile.  I'm going to keep kissing your squishy face and neck and savor your baby squeals. 

I am so thankful for you.  I am so thankful for now.
