dearest sweet ruby Kay,
I have probably asked a million times today, "where did my tiny baby go?" you are now six months old, and I am left feeling like time truly does fly by. one of our good friends just had a baby last week, and after holding their little miracle you felt very old in my arms. this past month was a very special month with christmas and new years, and you started to do some very big new things. you now are sitting up and crawling everywhere. you started out with a slow army-crawl, and now are a full blown crawler!
our love for you continues to grow, sweet girl. you are such a chill baby and love to giggle, especially when you are around people. you are the perfect mix of easy-going yet friendly, and i hope that you never change. you are becoming very curious, and love discovering new things and love toys.
some sweet things to remember from your sixth month with you are:
-you are no longer swaddled and now sleep in sleep sacks.
-we started you on baby cereal which has helped you sleep through the night (hallelujah!)
-you are now sitting up on your own (more recently) and can sit on your own for a few minutes
-your favorite toys are your stacking cups, wooden giraffe toy, and Sophie the giraffe
-we have a collection of giraffe toys for you, especially thanks to christmas gifts from mimi and nina.
-you put everything in your mouth! we are definitely in the drool stage with you.
-you enjoy swinging in your 'jumping jenny' more than jumping
-you don't like riding in your car seat at night- which results in either your daddy or i sitting next to you to keep you company
-you are very content in your exersaucer, and play with each toy on it.
-you love crawling and exploring. you started out army crawling, then scooting, and now rock back and forth on your knees. If we FaceTime with family- you will crawl towards our phone screens to see them!
-you typically take 2 naps each day, in the morning and afternoon. occasionally you roll onto your tummy mid-nap, and those naps are always the longest.
-you like to blow bubbles, and stick out your tongue.
