Hollyn Monroe: 6 Months!

Whew!  I almost missed this one and it's your 1/2 birthday!  Shame on me and poor, sweet 3rd baby.:)

*You are a LITTLE on the spoiled side.  When I say little.....I mean a LOT!  You are a momma's girl through and through and you give the best fuss you can in order to be in my arms.  I'm going to blame it on my new found love for my wrap. ;/

*You are babbling more and more.  "Dada dada" and "baba baba" are your typical coos.

*You weighed 16.5 lbs, 27 inches, and 42.2 for head circumference at your 6 month appointment. You are in anywhere from 9-12 month clothes comfortably.  You are just a BIG baby girl!

*You are the hardest thing to keep still!  Diapers are a major challenge right now because you want to see and touch EVERYTHING!  Some days, I've got to be honest.....I avoid changing your diaper because of the muscle it takes to keep you still.  You are a beast.  One day, you were literally in a handstand position on the changing table with poop all up your back and I had no moves.  It was game over for me.  There was poop everywhere.

*That brings me to the next thing....poop up your back.  You have this mastered.   You wear a size 3 diaper and Pampers are the only thing remotely close to keeping seepage locked up.  It's unbelievable.  We ruin outfits daily.  ;(

*Your smile is contagious and I can't get enough of it.

*You still have a little strawberry blonde tint to your hair and rosy red cheeks.

*You have 2 sweet little birthmarks on the top of your hiney/lower back and I'm not sure that I've mentioned them.  I have one in almost the exact place....we are twinsies.

*We started food!  You have been eating rice cereal, oatmeal, and a little bit of avocado and carrots.  You do really well with them all.

*You love to twist and twirl your tongue!

Hollyn, we love you cupcake.
