6 Months

Adelyn turned 6 Months old this week!! Oh and how she has changed! All within the last week or so she has started sitting up, crawling, pulling up to stand and saying "Dada!!" Well, she has been babbling Dada but she does it when you ask her to so we think she is saying it. Andon's first word was Mama so at least I got one of them. :) She also has two new teeth and has started to eat solid foods and LOVES them. So far she has eaten bananas, apples, mangos, and butternut squash.

At her 6 month check up this week she weighed 17 lbs. and was 26 and 1/2 in. Staying around the 95% for height and weight. That's my healthy girl!

We're still working on her sleep schedule around here. Little Miss just wants to hang out. She takes a nap around 9 a.m. for 2 hours and then takes another nap around 1 p.m. (This is something we have just gotten figured out within the last 2 weeks and doesn't work every day but we're working on it.) She goes to bed around 7:30 at night and sometimes wakes up around 11:00 to be fed and then always wakes up around 3:00 a.m to be fed again.

We are truly enjoying every moment with our baby girl. I was just talking to Jared the other night about her. Telling him I am just in awe of God's timing with giving her to us. We went 3 and 1/2 years trying to have a baby. When I honestly believed that we couldn't have any more children and was absolutely OK with that I found out I was pregnant. 9 months later He blessed us with this precious little girl. And of any day in the whole year, He chose to bring her on Easter Sunday. The day that we celebrate His resurrection! Sometimes I still can't believe it. She has been the perfect addition to our family!

Adelyn, we love you so much!! You are the most precious little girl and Mommy is so thankful that you are ours!!
