Happy Half Birthday to Emme girl!

 Our happy girl!
 This girl is too sweet!

 Crazy hair baby!
I squeezed her head into her newborn cap! She has grown so much!

6 Months Old Stats:
Weight- 15#11oz.
40th %
Height- 26 1/4in.
Head- 16 3/4

As you can see, she is learning to sit unsupported and can easily go down to her tummy! 
Her very new development has been getting up on all fours and rocking.  She is getting ready for crawling and being on the move.  I am so not ready to truly baby proof the house again! 

Emme loves to go around and around in her activity center and touches all the buttons and chews on the toys that bend her way.  I can give her several toys beside her and she will make herself happy exploring and chewing and playing with them.  

She will get really fussy when she is hungry and tired! Which is great for us because that is easy to fix!

So far, she is still nursing and taking bottles that I have pumped when we are on the go or she gets too distracted to sit and nurse.  She loves to watch her brothers and sister too much!

I have given her baby food and she takes about two jars a day and some rice cereal, too.

Napping is sporadic, but I try to get her a long nap in her crib every day.  We are just in the car way too much to be on a good napping schedule. So far, she is very flexible.

Bedtime is around 7:00pm and usually she gets up around 7:00am.  

Her favorite toys are her ducky paci and a doll that sings music to her.

She wears size 3 diapers and 6-9 month clothes.  

Our little Emme is just so much fun to dress-up, hold, love on and snuggle!   
I am too happy to be her Mommy!

A donut picnic!

After church this happened....yes, I totally bribe my kids with sweets, especially when I have the ulterior motive of trying to take our Christmas card pictures!  So, I give you the "donut picnic" that happened at noon and before lunch!

 As you can see, poor little Emme had donut envy... 
she just kept looking at them and us, "like where is MY donut, people!"

 And wasn't my husband so sweet to capture THIS very unflattering picture of me stuffing my face with 
a donut!  The nerve...he says he is not a photographer, but a photo journalist capturing "the real story."

A boy and his boat...

 Christmas came early for this boy, when his Pepaw (upon hearing about his boat obsession)
brought him a boat....his very own boat!
Lately, all and I mean all, Davis talks about is "his boat." 
Where he goes on his boat, who is on his boat, what he might put on his boat and how he will fight bad guys and pirates if they come near his boat. So I give you the day that Davis became his very own boat captain!
(I will admit I shed a few tears seeing how happy he was about "his boat.")

 Giving Pepaw a big hug!

The boys played on the boat all afternoon! 
It was a great day!
