Ellie 6 Months


I am in complete denial that you are already 6 months old! How can that be? We just brought you home YESTERDAY! Your personality has completely blossomed this past month! You are truly just the absolute sweetest baby girl. You smile all the time but you're very selective on who you will laugh for. You have the funniest laugh I have ever heard. We have been waiting for a full-on belly laugh but you haven't given it to us yet. I think this funny laugh/grunt you've got going on is as good as it's gonna get. 
You still favor mom and I secretly love it. I love that you need your mom and even though it means that I am basically holding you on my hip all hours of the day, I don't mind one bit. You will go to others for a few minutes but you always have your eyes on me. Speaking of, you haven't been a fan of a swing or bouncer or bumbo or basically anything that will give mom a bit of a break. But, you are now loving you jumperoo! It has been so nice to have something that you love when I need to get something done real quick. 
You had your first taste of baby cereal and baby food this month. At first, I thought you liked it but it must has been a fluke because you wanted nothing to do with it for the following couple of weeks. I tried everything but you would just let the food sit on your tongue until it fell out. And then we tried bananas…and you LOVED them! So, in an effort to give you some variety, I've slowly been mixing in other fruits and veggies into you bananas and it seems to be working. Fingers crossed that over time you eventually branch out to other foods. You are still exclusively breastfed and won't take a bottle (or a binky). But, again, I don't mind at all. I love getting that one on one time with you. 
You are rolling everywhere recently. You haven't quite learned how to sit up yet but you're getting there. I know it won't be long before you are crawling all over the place. 
You still love your brother and Sam absolutely adores you. There is nothing that makes my heart happier than watching the relationship between you and your brother grow. I prayed daily when I was pregnant with you that you two would love each other and watch out for each other and be the best of friends. And I never dreamed that he would love you as much as he already does. You are the first thing he asks for when he wakes up, he gets frustrated with me when I don't feed you fast enough when you're hungry, he constantly begs me to put you in his room so you two can play with his toys together, and he is the first to start singing to you when you start to get fussy in the car. You two are so lucky to have each other. 
You have been the absolute perfect addition to our family, Ellie girl, and I could not imagine life without you. I hope you always know just how much we love and adore you.
