I am writing this post with great joy and yet a little sadness. WOW! Time flies. Our sweet Hope Amelia is 6 months old today! I am so excited to see her grow and thrive and yet a little sad to see her baby days coming to an end.
Here is a little bit about what she is doing these days:
up to 14 pounds 2 ounces
25 1/2 inches (she grew TWO inches since her four month check up)
still exclusively breastfed (though we are supposed to start some food tonight. I am having a super hard time with this for some reason. I know I can't breastfeed forever, but I am just not ready for her to grow up yet) Still will NOT take a bottle.
in love with her mommy and prefers to spend ALL her waking hours in mommy's arms
loves when Daddy rocks her to sleep. We think she must feel safe in his big arms. She sleeps best for him.
laughs hysterically at her brothers. She just thinks they are the best. She loves when they are around.
still has NOT had any issues with her EB aside from the fact that she scratches herself easily.
loves to smile and interact with EVERYONE (as long as Mommy is holding her)
is enamored with the Christmas Tree.
is chewing on and drooling on EVERYTHING she gets her hands on.
loves all toys that make a crinkly noise.
has started RIPPING the bows and hats off her head!
is sporting her UNC shirt today because she loves her daddy and he loves UNC! :) He puts up with a LOT of bows and frills so it was the least we could do!
Well we are off to go make her half year birthday cake (I know she can't eat it, but any excuse to eat cake is good right?!)
Thank you all for your continued prayers for our family!
