Six Months Old!

Dear Eryn,

Happy half-birthday, little love! I can’t believe you’re six months old! You had a big April – lots of fun stuff going on! We started with Easter – you and I went up on Saturday afternoon to visit with BeBe and so Mommy could visit with Aimee and Diane, and this was your first night away from home since we came home from the hospital after Mommy’s stay! Daddy stayed with Holly Saturday night and then drove up with Grandmommy and Granddaddy for Easter dinner! We had a lovely dinner, and you got your first visit from the Easter Bunny, who put your presents in your awesome new Easter basket! On the way home, we got to stop by Granddaddy and G.G.’s house for a visit, too!

The next weekend, your aunt, uncle, and cousins were in town, so we got to spend lots of time with them! The most exciting part was that we got to tell Daniel, Maggie, and Joshua that we’re going to Disney World in September! They were over the moon about it, and we even booked our first dining reservation – we’ll be having breakfast with Winnie the Pooh and friends at the Crystal Palace! That means we’ll get to enter Magic Kingdom before the park actually opens – that is so cool! I can’t wait for your first Disney trip – I just know you’re going to love it, even though you won’t be able to ride most of the rides. I’m hoping we can hold out and have your first haircut at the Harmony Barber Shop on Main Street! Here you are with Uncle Davis.

Mommy had to work a lot of overtime this month on a big project at work, so you’ve gotten to spend extra fun time with Daddy, Grandmommy and Granddaddy, and BeBe. You love it when BeBe comes to visit!

We’ve also spent more time in the backyard, since the weather has been so pretty, including…..your first time in a pool! We borrowed the kiddie pool from Grandmommy and Granddaddy, and Daddy set it up in the backyard. We got to put on your adorable swim suit with the monkey on the shirt, and you and Daddy had lots of fun in the pool! Unfortunately, it was only big enough for you and Daddy, so we bought a bigger pool for us all to use when we get back from the beach! We’ll turn you into a little fishie yet!

April has been another month of firsts….your first time in a pool, your first time in your Exersaucer, your first time on a train or in a swing (both at Cousin Mitchell’s birthday party), and even the first time helping Mommy with laundry!

You’re still working on rolling over – going from your tummy to your back happens more often, since you’re not a fan of tummy time! But you’re almost able to go from your back to your tummy – you just have trouble getting that arm out from under you! You continue to work on it though, especially on your playmat. You’re also working on sitting up on your own – you do great in the Bumbo, but when you’re just on the floor, you’re still wobbly and you tend to lean forward. But you’re getting there!

You were a little sick this month, so we took you to the doctor, and she thinks that you had a mild virus which made you a little lactose intolerant (temporarily, we hope). So we’ve switched you to the sensitive formula, which seems to be just fine. You were 15 lbs and 24.5 in long at our visit – growing like a weed! You’re pretty solidly in 6 month clothes, and even some of those are getting snug! Now that it’s warm outside, you’ve transitioned from wearing your sleep-and-plays to school (we just sleep in those now), and you’re wearing real clothes! We try to send you in pants since you’re on the floor so much – no rug burns for my baby girl! But the Meisches, our neighbors down the street, gave us a huge box of 6 month clothes that were handed down by their four girls, and we’ve had such fun playing with all the new outfits! We’re so thankful for them!

Our six-month-old girl – we can hardly believe it!

We can’t wait to see what the next six months will hold! We love you bunches, Munchkin!
