What can I say about our Kathryn Lillias? One thing is for sure, her short six months of life has flown by! It really is going much faster than it did with Braden. I am enjoying Kate so very much! I love her huge gummy smile, her coos, her slobbery kisses and her squinty eyes. She really is happy most of the time...but be very afraid if you catch her in the rare instance she isn't. This girl has quite a set of lungs! Her scream is so loud! In the night when she wakes up, there is no letting her "cry it out." Once she gets worked up, she will scream for an hour or more. I'd much rather just feed her and go back to sleep in ten minutes. Once in a while she will sleep through the night and thats good enough for me right now!
I have finally started feeding her baby food, sometimes. I must admit I'm not excited about it this go around. However, it must be done now! So far she hates rice cereal, thinks apples are too sour, but will eat pears. Poor second child has no pictures being fed yet. I will work on that! Kate can now sit up, roll all over the floor, get ahold of things you swore were out of her reach, put her paci in her mouth and copy lots of sounds you make. She used to be quite the smiler, but now she is starting to save more of those just for me, Ben and Braden. Now she likes to stare at strangers and figure them out rather than charm them with her smile.
Here are a few pictures of her sixth month of life in no particular order.
I love how content she is in the stroller. It makes life much easier. She likes to look out at observe the world.
Leave her alone for one minute and she gets herself into predicaments. I mean really, getting tangled in the blanket is understandable, but how did the wipe box get on her legs? Braden was asleep!
These two love each other!
This girl loves to swing! She seriously will stay in it for an hour. Very helpful when I'm trying to coordinate their nap times!
I can't tell if she is going to be a thumb sucker or not. Some days she is all about it and others not so much. Either way, it's pretty cute!
What a wonderful six months it has been!
