Just when you think...

they can't get any cuter to you, somehow they do. Post worthy? Maybe not. But some days it's just watching the little things that make your day.

love, love, love.

Two different gestures. One amazing day.

It's days like this that make me glad i'm home and not working.

Late this afternoon, I was sitting with her and getting distracted by the news on tv while holding her pacifier in my hand. Suddenly she reached forward, grabbed it out of my hand and promptly popped it right in her mouth. I immediately looked at her since i was so surprised, and she gave me this sweet little grin and giggle. Like she was just as surprised at what she did, as i was. So amazing.

Then tonight as i was putting her to sleep, I had my hands dangling over the edge of the crib. Usually she puts her hands at her side, or behind her head to get comfy and ready for for sleep. She usually looks at me, but doesn't reach out, doesn't interact too much. But tonight, she took her left hand and very deliberately reached out and grabbed my hand and held it. Then with her other hand, she pulled out the pacifier out of her mouth and held it there so she could smile and talk to me. Truly amazing. Our little baby is turning into a people. :)

Giggle Fest 2010*

*the giggle inducer cannot be held responsible for the stupid looks, noises, coos or chortles necessary to induce said gigglefest 2010.

6 months

Six months came and went as we were heading up to MI. She's amazing and changing every day. And I swear she gets longer while she sleeps! (note the toe poking through the onesie in the pic--this is a common theme) She seems so big all of the sudden. Pretty soon she'll have her learner's permit, right?

Teething is of course, in full swing. So all things are either licked, bitten or gnawed on at any given moment. This is especially fun in gas station bathrooms on road trips! Ahh, just think of the immunity she's building up with every mouthful.... urp.

She's also starting to "get" things. She knows the sign for eat (of course, the girl loves food) and understands when we tell her to wait, etc. Guess that means we REALLY need to clean up the language eh?? oy. I'm afraid to think what her first word might be...
