Six Months

Would it be overkill to post all 88 pictures from our lil photoshoot?? No? Perfect, let us begin.

Six Months; Half a year; Yikes

My Dearest Carter J,

Another month flown by, another month older, cuter and more mobile. You've gone from rolling over - to sitting up - to semi crawling to allllmost crawling. In fact, yesterday you did officially crawl. It was about a four or five real hand/knee/hand/knee crawl but then flop. You have been back to army crawling and scooting today. So for the day, I'm safe. But I know it's a matter of days before you commit the movement to muscle memory and it's Katy bar the door. You sit up all by yourself and can go from your belly to a sitting position, quite the strong little nugget you are. 

No teeth, yet. But I have a feeling they are close. You LOVE to eat, and I need to be more consistent in feeding you solids, your pediatrician has given us the green light for everything except honey. So game on. 

You are quickly very quickly outgrowing your clothes, in fact you usually lounge in your sister's clothes, I guess we can start the wardrobe sharing now. I would say you are in 9 month size, but wear 12-18 month with ease. No clue what size your feet are, but I'm looking forward to shoe shopping this Fall for you girls.

You squeal and scream a lot. You are starting to babble more and more, less spit bubbles but lots of drool and still lots of spit up, oh how I long for the day you stop spitting up.

You love to be talked to, and watch your Sister so intently. Anytime she gives you attention you are one happy girl, it's so sweet to see your love for her. You love when I whistle and sing, I'll enjoy it before you realize how embarrassingly bad I am at both. You love to take baths with your sister, you splash and kick squealing when Reagan splashes back. 


I can't wait to see how you change in the next six months, although I would be happy if they would take their time coming. Maybe with the changing season things will seem to slow. Wishful thinking? Probably.

I know I've said it before, but you have fit into our family so seamlessly and dare I say without much effort. Of course two children is work, lots of work. Maybe it's because you two are so close in age that I am just in the swing of things but it's been a lot more smooth than I could have ever imagined. 

You have taught me so much about the love that is within us all, I love looking into your eyes and wondering what you will do with your life, how you will view the world, and what beauty you will add to it. You are so inspiring and you have such a fun spirit. I cannot wait to see more of your little personality.

I love you my sweet nugget.
