6 Month Letter to Sadie Beth

Sadie Beth,

You are a whole 6 months old today! It doesn't seem like it has been half a year since we brought you home from the hospital. Time is really flying by us but I hope to relish every moment with you!!!!

You have changed so much in one months time.

You are enjoying lots of nibbles on your chubby little fingers and your whole hand if you can manage to get it all into your mouth (among anything else that you pick up). I will have to watch you carefully when you are mobile for this reason (EVERYTHING goes to the mouth).

Your little head is becoming more round with each passing day.

Your hands and feet serve as entertainment for you on most days, but you still enjoy a good chew toy.

You LOVE the TV but Mommy doesn't like for you to watch

You make me warm and fuzzy inside with your open mouth smile when you wake up from a nap.

Your sweet coos are MUCH louder these days but most of the time I still enjoy them (listening to them now and I'm smiling).

I love the way you like to cover your face with your bib (I think you might like the smell of the laundry detergent, so cute).

I love the way you grab my face while I am feeding you and grab your daddy's beard when he is feeding or playing with you.

You are a "woman" who already knows what you want and you're not scared to express it. I hope this trait sticks with you so that you can become what God desires for you.

I love the way you make that sound like a motor boat with your tongue even though you can produce a massive amount of saliva in the process. I love watching you and daddy play this game, taking turns.

You are sleeping through the night in your bed (not the swing) these days and it makes mommy and daddy very proud.

You are trying really hard to sit without support.

I love the way you laugh at Mili.

Cuddling with you after a long day makes everything OK!!!!

I love you more than I could ever express in writing. I am SO glad God gave you to me!!!!
I love you to the moon and back and then some!!!!

That was very sweet Alice, and I am so happy for you that Miss Sadie's head is reshaping itself, I know it made you feel bad, but it seems as though everything will be fine with that.
I am also happy for Sadie that she is sleeping in her bed, and did you say all night through...awesome! I am lucky that way to. James is an awesome sleeper.
Have a wondeful rest of the week.
Love Dawn :)

I love this age with babies. They are so cuddly and sweet, and not yet mobile enough to be disastorous!
