Dear Livia & Laney,
It seems like just yesterday we were in the hospital meeting you for the first time. You are growing before my eyes and becoming little girls. I can’t stand it – please slow down!! We had your 6 month check up and the Doctor said you were growing perfectly. You are small (2% for weight and height and 10% for head diameter) but mighty and meeting plus exceeding your development milestone! Hooray!! Mommy is so proud of you!
We are still working on rolling from back to front…ahh you are so close. Livia you jibber jabber all day long and Laney you’ve learned to shriek/scream whether you have an audience or not. I don’t know how Daddy gets anything done because our house is never quiet anymore. You are grabbing at everything which has thrown us for a loop. You continue to be very interested in each other and are always curious what the other one is doing. Did I mention LOVE for attention?? Umm yea that’s a big one now. And hatred for laying down or being in your car seat. You want to be out, sitting upright (Livia you have mastered this, Laney you’re almost there) and flirting with the world! Tummy time is going so much better. You aren’t close to crawling and I’m TOTALLY fine with that. I’ll need extra prayers, legs, arms, etc. when that occurs. Also no teeth yet. You are drooling and gumming everything you can get your hands on though.
You are both super strong willed and get frustrated when you want to play with a toy and can’t figure out how it works. Lastly, I’ve noticed you are both wanting to play with the same toy at the same time. Some fussing has ensued because of this. I think you need to learn to share and we can’t have two of everything but if there was just one of you, you would get to have that toy to yourself. I don’t think there is one right answer so I’ll continue to mull over this dilemma. Thank you thank you for being such AH-MAZING sleepers. 11-12 hours per night and 2-3 naps per day.You get it from your Momma!
You are both doing better on the food front. I think it’s more fun for you to smash the food all over your face and on your Bumbo than to actually swallow but that’s ok. We are up to sweet potatoes, peas and prunes. I am still exclusively nursing you. Yay! I made it to my goal! Not sure how long I’m going to continue but for now, I’m thankful that you are both still willing and I’m able to keep up. I get to experience a side of your sweet bond that no one else does when you are both nursing and I LOVE it. I hope you both get to experience this amazing bond with your babies someday.
It’s crazy how different life is now that you are 6 months old. We say it all the time, we’re not sure how we survived the first 3 months but we did! I think we finally figured out this whole parenting thing. Well for now. Haha! Hallelujah!!
You are surrounded by so much love. I hope you feel it daily! Your laughs and smiles are contagious. Daddy and I can’t get enough! Always remember that we love and adore you!
