Elise- 6 months!!!

Dear Elise,
Today you are 6 months old. Exactly half a year ago we finally met you, face to face. And in exactly half a year from today, you will be one year old!!! Craziness. I look at you and wonder what I did before you arrived. (and then I remember; I worked more hours, worked out on a regular basis, went to happy hour with friends, took vacations, slept through the night..... but I wouldn't trade any of it!!!!) Your little personality develops more and more each day. You are still a very happy, yet serious and alert baby. Your watchful eyes don't miss much.
Some tidbits about you:
*You weigh 15 pounds 12 ounces and are 25 1/2 inches long.
*You still wake one time each night.
*You go to bed at 6:30, wake around 3:00am and get up for the day around 7:00am.
*You take 2 naps, 10:00am and 2:00pm. (when you're in the mood for a nap!)
*You usually sleep on your tummy but sometimes I find you on your side.
*You love to say Ahhh Ahhh Aaaaa and (with your mouth closed) Mmm Mmm Mmm.
*You adore Jaws and watch him every chance you get.
*You have only had breastmilk but that is soon going to change as we're beginning solid food this week.
*You do not like to lay on your back and you roll over as soon as I lay you down.
*You are getting close to crawling and push up on all fours all the time. You are pretty good at scooting around.
*You love to blow raspberries!
*You love your mommy and daddy and we love YOU!!!
Because you like to be on your tummy so much, this was the picture I kept getting.

When you hear one of us walk into your room, you immediately push your bumper down to see who's there.
With Daddy before he goes to work.
Fun in your Jumperoo at GiGi and Tompa's.
