I cannot believe that my little girl is already 6 months old!!! Time seriously needs to slow down. I had always heard that babies grow up fast, but I didn't really ever believe it since time seems to go by so slowly. But these people did not lie. This has been the fastest 6 months of my life! And even though it has definitely not been the easiest 6 months of my life (probably actually the hardest 6 months ever), it has been the most rewarding and simply the BEST 6 months EVER!!!
Ani Kate LOVES food. She probably gets this from both Spencer and I because we LOVE food. It worries me a little because she will stare at us, without blinking, while we eat our food with her mouth open. She can't get enough of her own food either bottle or her solids!!! I'm figuring that somewhere down the line I am going to have to make some food boundaries to avoid body image issues. But that's a ways off. For now I am proud of her love and desire to eat! She is truly my child. She also knows the sign for milk already. She can't do the sign but she calms down when I do it because she knows it's coming.... Smart girl!
Aniston sleeps from about 9pm-7 or 8am solid. She is an AMAZING sleeper and I love it! Of course I get up at least once to make sure she's still breathing, but it's nice that she is respectful of night time.
She's also a crafty little girl... When she knows we aren't paying attention to her she will fake cough and then look over at us to see if we looked at her. When she does it from her crib, I may or may not yell "FAKER" then go back to whatever it was that I was doing. Bad parenting?????
Spencer and I still look at her and we can't believe that we made her! Children are proof that we are capable of doing great things! I'm so thankful for Aniston Kate and the blessings and love that she has brought into our home for the past 6 months. I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with her and my AWESOME husband!
HAPPY HALF BIRTHDAY ANISTON KATE AHLSTROM!!! WE LOVE YOU!!!
