6 Months

Dear Lydia,
  Its your half birthday today. You are half a year old! You have accomplished so much in the last month. Your first tooth has poked through, you are so close to crawling and you are eating a variety of foods. You have just been introduced to watermelon and pineapple through your mesh container thingy, not really sure what else to call it. You love to suck all the juice out and make a huge mess but  you love it! Your new favorite thing is to chew on a big carrot.
You took your first road trip and had a girls weekend in Nauvoo, IL. You were such a good girl and adapted to being away from home very well. We visited the temple grounds but you were sound asleep in the Ergo carrier. Of the 4 hours drive, you slept 3 of it on the way there and home.

You said your first word, its dada.....we were in JcPenny getting your pictures done and daddy picked you up and you said dada! You are babbling alot and love to see people. You get so excited whenever anyone comes over. You smile all the time and love to play with your feet whether they are in your mouth or you are laying on your back holding them towards your mouth.
You love to grab stuff! When you are held, you grab at anything that is in the hands of the person holding you, EVERYTHING!
You are wearing size 6-9 month clothes, 9 month pants because you are so tall. At your 6 month check up you ranked in the 75th percentile for weight at 17 pounds 7 ounces and you were off the chart for your height at 28 inches! Daddy and I took you to get your ears pierced just 2 days after you turned 6 months old. You cried for a few seconds and then you were easily distracted.
You are still sleeping through the night, napping twice a day and still like to be swaddled when you sleep.
You are such a joy to have as a daughter. You bring so many smiles to us everyday.
I wonder what you will accomplish in the next month?

We love you baby girl
