6 months in....

Let's see at 6 months you...
-Are ALMOST crawling, you scoot everywhere!
-Love pears and apples...if I mix one of those two with anything you'll eat it.
-Are getting better at eating. It's actually not too messy of an experience anymore.
-Are obsessed with keys...which is pretty gross because I know they are just full of germs.
-Have recently decided - after literally 5 months of sleeping 10-11 hours at night - that 2:00am is a great time to eat.
-When you cry/complain you go "mama mama mama".
-Are getting some hair on you! Which to our surprise is brown and not blond....coming from two parents who were complete toeheads it's quite a shock!
-Still have a strange fascination with headbands:)
-Have taken quite an interest in our cats.
-Put EVERYTHING in your mouth! Most recently people's hair when they hold you....
-Love your door jumper.
-When your awake, or asleep for that matter, you are constantly moving. A BIG time wiggle worm!
-Are sitting up on your own for the most part....unless you're tired then you just fall over in one motion. 
- Love being outside! Unfortunately it has been so cold and rainy lately!
-Are finally getting an eye color! Looks like you got mama's hazel eyes instead of daddy's blue....
-Are VERY ticklish and have the BEST laugh!
-Talk to yourself before your go to sleep for a good 5-10 minutes.
-Are such a blessing and we are so thankful for you!!!

As I reflect on the past year I find that I am perhaps more thankful this year than I have been in the past. This is the year that I become a mommy and for that I don't think I can ever stop being thankful. This is the year I have been married to my best friend for 3 whole years. This is the year that my mom got diagnosed with breast cancer....and I can say with complete trust...that this is the year that she is claiming victory over it! This is the year that I started teaching kindergarten. Love all 24 of my little people, their little voices, their passion to learn, and love having the opportunity to be their first teacher! This is the year I will learn to love running again (hence the words WILL LEARN...still working on it). This is the year I said goodbye to my grandpa but can rejoice because I know he is rejoicing over with our maker. This is the year I have 3 beautiful nieces and 1 handsome nephew. This is the year my baby brother got engaged and I get another sister. This the year that I have to lean on God more than ever and through that it is the year I am learning to see God's love for me in a whole new way.
