Month 6

Dearest Brynn,

Another month gone...another month bigger!
You are officially half a year old!  I can't believe it, we are halfway to your first birthday.  Time just doesn't stop, even though sometimes I want to freeze it so I can hold you and rock you forever.
You missy are becoming a mover and a shaker these days.  You learned an awful lot this month.  You are rolling and rolling to get where you want to go.  You also are up on your hands and knees rocking back and forth...ready to take off..whenever those little arms of yours learn what to do.

You are a mama's girl through and through.  You cannot let me out of your sight for a second.  You are constantly whining for me and reaching your arms for me to pick you up.  When in someone else's arms you are searching the room to make sure I am still there.  While I love how much you love me...I think we need to work a little on your independence ;)

We had to officially lower your crib yesterday as you are now trying to pull yourself up on everything.   As soon as we lowered it we put you in there to see how you liked it and right before our eyes you grabbed the railing with both hands and stood up.  Right then and there daddy proceeded to lower it to the lowest setting now.  You crazy girl.

You are so funny these days scootin' across the couch and reaching for me and trying to climb up me.  You also scoot and wiggle til you can reach Lilly's tail..which you then proceed to take a fist full of hair from.  You also learned how to give the biggest open mouthed kisses this month.  I say give mama kiss and you open your mouth and dive bomb my face.  It's the cutest darn thing ever.


I am pretty sure we are gonna have a crawler this month, which means I needs to gets a movin on completing your playroom.

You are the light of our lives Brynn.  Can't even remember life without you as part of our family.  You are the best and you make everyday more bright.

We love you to the moon and back,
xoxo mommy and daddy.


Sleep: We had to let you cry it out this month and that was the hardest thing ever.  You wanted me to come in and stick your paci back in every time it fell out and well, that just wasn't gonna work missy!  Took like three nights but you did it.  You now sleep a solid 11 hours without waking up.  You are however waking up at 6 on the dot which is super hard on mama but guess I can't complain.

Feeding: As per doctors orders we started solids this month.  You have had peaches all week and loved loved loved them.  You dive bomb that spoon like its your job.  And I can't quite get those bites in your mouth fast enough to your liking.  You let me know it too, by grunting as loud as you can.
