finley & landry {six months}

No I guess my eye's aren't playing tricks on me. My sweet babies really are SIX months old. Half the year has gone by and I'm still left questioning, where did it go. I have never lived a more amazing six months in my life and the most amazing part of that is that I know it will only continue! It is pure joy! To go along with my thankful posts, I will say of course I'm thankful for these babies. I am also thankful at how surprisingly easy these last six months have been. I have the most content, happy, easy babies ever. I love it when someone in public says 'oh you have your hands full' and my normal response is, no not really, I have wonderful babies. I've had several people comment 'your two seem easier than my one' and deep inside it makes me smile because other people see what amazing babies I am blessed with too.

we introduced you to a sippy cup during solids and you are doing great with it!
you can now hold your own bottle, although most times would prefer us to do it
 size 2 nipple, although we have fed you out of a size 3, we just don't have enough for every bottle
are an amazing sleeper. You are normally napping 2-3 times a day and normally go down for bed around 9 and are up around 8:30
still take a paci but we try to only offer it during naps and at bedtime
you have a huge personality, you are becoming increasingly more giggles and you talk almost non-stop. You are very opinionated and have mommies personality for sure. You still have your trademark 'squeal' and man does it get louder every time. 
you are a mover. just this week you have started to 'army crawl' and between that and rolling you are everywhere. Daddy and I just talked about baby-proofing for you. 
are becoming so curious. you love to feel peoples faces and always want to reach and grab at things. 
you still have an initial fear of strangers and are really more ok as long as mommy or daddy is holding you
you get so excited for baths and have started wanting to sit up in the bath
are such a chatty little girl, as soon as you wake up in the morning we hear you chatting away on your monitor
you are in love with the dogs although they don't fancy you quite as much
your littles legs are getting stronger and you've started wanting to stand more
you love your exersaucer but don't care for the jumparoo.
your current favorite toys are a chew book, baby einstein octopus, chester your monkey, a little steering wheel and sophie your giraffe.
