Happy Half Birthday!

Annie is 6 months old today! Time really does go by quicker with the second one. I loooove this age. 6 months makes all those newborn weeks worth it! Annie is such a sweet, happy baby. I say that all the time I know but there really isn't any other way to describe her. She is just sweet all over. She goes to sleep smiling, wakes up smiling, talks and smiles while she eats, and giggles if you do something funny. She rarely fusses or whines. Even when she's hungry she does this half laugh half cough kind of thing....she is such a blessing and a constant reminder of God's goodness in our lives.

At 6 months, Annie:
- is trying to decide if she is going to be on a 4 hour schedule. Some days she can do it, some days she can't. I'm letting her set the pace :)
- wears 6 month clothes and is using up her last few size 2 diapers. Which is shocking because she is quite a chunker. She was 16lbs 4 oz at 5 months!
- still has blue eyes!!
- has two teeth!
- has a dimple on her left cheek, just like Lucy
- loves her big sister

- can roll over both ways and almost always ends up on her stomach when she sleeps
- is a champion sleeper, taking 2 long naps during the day and sleeps 12 hours at night!! Every now and then she will take a little cat nap in the evening too.
- nurses 4-5 times a day, depending on whether she does a straight 4 hour that day or not
- is doing very well eating solids now and so far will eat anything
- is happy go lucky and very flexible. Although I feel like she is sleepier than Lucy was, so she really isn't that flexible when she needs her sleep :)

- loves to be held
- is getting more and more active and is content to play on her mat or exersaucer by herself
- is very social and wants to be where everyone else is...which is why she usually ends up in her bumbo on the kitchen table during family dinner :)
- does things in her own time, and doesn't like to be pushed or challenged as much as my type A firstborn :)
- isn't very interested in Heidi...she just gives her a weird look every now and then
- is so close to sitting alone!

I feel like she is such a typical second child, which must mean I am treating her like a second child :) She really is such a joy and I don't know what we did before she came along.

We love you more than words Annie Faith!
