That’s how many days this beautiful little soul has been in our lives.  Longer than that when I think of the ecstatic anticipation I had during my entire pregnancy.  I can’t believe she is 6 months old today!  (On my clock, I’ve still got 20 minutes until she’s 6 months and one day.)

Dsc_0062939 She loves to have people play with her.  She loves to watch.  She is a "tough crowd" with most people – only grinning and laughing if you work at it.  Such a girl.  She is soft and snuggly. Dsc_0025935_3  She is patient and non-demanding.  She loves to take her socks off….She has the best most cute little belly button I’ve ever seen.  She chuckles when she is happy and just this week says "daddadadadadadada"  which makes Russell feel great! ๐Ÿ˜‰ She just started eating bananas which she thinks are pretty spectacular!  (although most of her food still just lands on her cute bibs).  She can sit up by herself for a bit until she topples over into a heap.  This usually makes her cry but only from frustation, I think. She is fun to dress-up and always happy when she wakes up.  I take her over to the mirror in her bedroom every morning and we play "look!  there’s that cute baby!" and she loves to look at that cute baby in the mirror. The most beautiful girl in the world to me.

Dsc_0075942 She likes to be snuggled but is also happy to have tummy time and play and watch the boys be boys.  She is our little princess and we love her so. 

I could gush a bit more and go on and on and on but now it’s 7 minutes til tomorrow and I’d like to have this posted before then. 

Happy 182.5 day birthday my sweet and lovely daughter! ๐Ÿ™‚
