I have a love/hate when it comes to writing these because as much as I love looking back on the past month, my heart grows sad realizing how fast time is going. Adalyn, you're almost 6 months old. How did that happen? That's half a year. 5 months has flown by in a blink of an eye. I have no idea where to even begin. The past month you have sky rocketed in your milestones. You are so verbal now, so you will definitely be a chit chatter like your Mamma. You are sitting up on your own un-assisted for brief periods of time, rolling over, and you have not one but TWO teeth. Yep, your two bottom teeth popped almost at the exact same time. You are trying to crawl so badly but it is hilarious because you really hate being on your tummy. Anytime you roll over you immediately get mad as if you're thinking "wait, this is not what I wanted to do". The moment you hit your belly you begin pushing your legs and arms trying so hard to move. I am convinced if there wasn't such a belly there, you would be crawling by now.
Your current favorite thing to do is go on your singing spurts. You will hit every octave your voice allows you to go to and you wont stop. It is the most amazing thing to listen to your little voice. We have yet to hear you full belly laugh but you do this little mini chuckle that is adorable. Mommy would love to hear your real life any day now though baby girl. Oh, and you are standing up ALL the time. The moment I get you on your feet, you lock yourself into place and can hold your weight up for minutes to minutes on end. I recently started walking with you and getting you to move your feet so that we can work on maybe getting those little chunky legs moving sooner than later. Your doctor gave you to go ahead on foods last month but I haven't really jumped into that yet. I have given you a couple spoons of food here and there and you didn't start really "liking" it until the past few days. You are still breastfeeding like a champ so I am not pushing the solid foods too much too soon. When the time comes though we will be doing baby led weaning and having you eat big people food instead of gross pureed food. My theory is if I do not want to eat it because it's gross looking then you aren't eating it.
You are finally loving all your toys and enjoy playing for extended periods of time. You love our night time routine of going to see GiGi and Popeye and snuggling them on the couch. Plus when we are with them you get to watch your favoritest shows, which are anything HGTV, Food Network, Travel Channel, and your recent favorite being football! Popeye is so happy you are a football girl but him and daddy are debating on what team you're going to like. You are the smiling queen and melt the hearts of everyone around you. Anytime we go out, I get stopped about how adorable and beautiful you are. Of course every single time you turn on the charm and flash that big baby tooth smile and those sparkly green eyes. I jump with joy every day that you got both mommy and daddy's eyes! We are in between clothing sizes for you right now but it's okay because the season is about to switch over so a new wardrobe is required anyway.
Everyday with you is a blessing and I day I am so grateful for. The best and happiest day of my life is the day you came into it. From the moment I found out that you were in my belly to the moment you arrived. Every day with you is a blessing. I love you more than any word in any language can describe.
