Six Months

Little Mae turned six months yesterday and I can't believe how the time has flown by. I didn't even realize that it was her "half birthday" until late in the day, so I ran off and snapped some photos of her.

This week she has started sitting up and I am so excited about it. She however, is not so excited. It makes her extremely nervous as all her muscles tighten and shake to keep her composure. After about 30 seconds she gives up her balance and her head plummets toward the floor. Sadly, I'm not always quick enough to catch her and then she lets me have it with all sorts of angry screaming. The sitting stage is great though. It means that she will soon be more capable of entertaining herself and I can't complain about that.

For the most part she is extremely easy going and happy. I love snuggling her and touching her perfectly smooth baby skin. She is such a mommy's girl, but most of all she adores her sister. All Blondie has to do is give Mae a smidgen of attention and she lights up. Of course, it has to be on Blondie's terms and only occurs once a day for about 45 seconds.

Greta's Favorites:

- Her Sister
- Her binky
- Squash, sweet potatoes, pears
- The remote
- Cell phones
- Pulling Hair (particularly Blondie's)
- Playing with and eating paper

i love it, i love it, i love it! your girls are way too cute for their own good! im sorry, another baby hair comment. i cant handle it (im jealous--ill admit it)! way too cute. i love half birthdays. everyone (but me) has a fun one. anthony-st pattys. jonas-christmas. mercer-groundhogs day! so much fun!!! loved the hair pulling comment. mercer likes to do that with jonas. she starts out softly patting his hair, all the sudden shes got handfuls of hair and shes laughing hysterically. too tricky!

Gretta's list sounds exactly like Cohen's except its my hair, not something I'm super fond of. And I haven't ventured too far into the foods. My dr gave me the out to wait until 6 months for solids so I did. Its amazing how the time passes so quickly. July will be here before we know it.
