Half Year!!

Lily is a half of a year old TODAY!!! Sounds crazy doesn't it? She smiled from ear to ear during her birthday song almost like she knew today was a special day. It's amazing how much she's changed and grown in just 6 months!! I literally can't not remember life without her!! I bet she can't either. ha ha I have so many scrapbook pages and books in the works that we're going to need to rent a storage unit for all the albums! Here's a book I'm working on called "Makin' Milestones' broken down by each month. Figured it was timely to share her first month and the last month. I'll share the others and her 6 month picture in the chair is on its way.

2 page spreads....




That was then...




This is now...



She has gone from a floppy, helpless, newborn into a baby who rolls all over the place, sits up steadily (with some help), smiley, expressive, high chair sitter, is a solid-eatin' machine, and even just had her first kiss.

(holding up baby bottle) Cheers to the best 6 months of our lives!! Lily, you are loved, cherished, and celebrated more than you'll ever know. Thank you for blessing our lives. We love you for being you. xoxo

Love the pages! I wish I would have taken note of every date jonah did something new when he was tiny. (note to self: do that for next one).

Seriously, lily is a doll, her skin is so perfectly creamy and her bright blue eyes, she's scrumptious!

I moved and haven't looked at your blog since the Spring. I saw it on an e-mail from Kelle...am I a stalker? Lilly is GORGEOUS!! I have thought of you often as you have returned to work. It never gets easy, but the routine helps and we mommy's are great at making the most of what we are given!! It also helps to have a great friend willing to love her!! Hang in there!
