Today is a big day. Caroline is six months old! Half of a year has passed since she came into the world. It doesn’t even seem possible.
We may have had a little party this morning.
This past month has marked a lot of changes in Caroline. While she has always been a quietly observant baby, now she is curious about everything. She reaches out to grab anything and everything within a twelve inch radius. She’s becoming more resourceful about grabbing things, if she’s doing tummy time and can’t reach a toy she wants she will grab the blanket and pull it towards her to get the toy. This is probably completely normal for her age, but I find it to be incredible.
She starts laughing hysterically every time she sees Dixie and gets very frustrated when we won’t let her grab Dixie’s fur.
She can sit up by herself and roll from back to front.
She’s tried more fruits and vegetables. So far, she hasn’t found one that she doesn’t like. Her babbling is becoming more distinct sounds.
She still has trouble with napping but she sleeps through the night so we’re not concerned.
I was nervous that when I went back to work Caroline’s happy disposition would change, but as it turns out, I had nothing to worry about. This kid can’t stop smiling.
I really can’t believe that it’s been half a year since we met this sweet little girl of ours.
Caroline, we love you more than words can describe and we feel so lucky to have you for our daughter.
Happy Half Birthday, Sweet Pea.
My love forever,
