Kate: 6 Months Old!

Sweet little peanut is 6 months old! We cannot believe that it's been half a year with tiny princess already. She is just the sweetest baby girl and we are loving every minute with her. She continues to be the happiest baby! At her 6 month appointment she weighed in at 13 lb. 5 oz. and 24 3/4 inches long. We also got the okay to start solids so we will be doing that this month! 

We are still in size 1 diapers and mostly 0-3 month clothes and some 3-6 month. Sleep is finally getting on a more regular schedule and mommy and daddy are very happy about that! She goes down between 8-8:30pm and usually sleeps until 7am or so. This was not without hard work but she is sleeping well and doing great! 

Spring has sprung here finally and Kate loves to be outside! She looks around and takes it all in. She has really started to notice Wrigley this month and is interacting with him more. He runs around the backyard like a crazy animal and she just watches him go, laughing and making the funniest baby noises! 

I feel like 6 months is about the time that their little personalities start to develop and it is so much fun to watch. Kate does this cute little thing with her tongue and her bottom lip. I laugh when she does it and she realizes that she is getting a reaction out of me and keeps doing it! She loves to make us laugh- just like her brother. She's blowing lots of bubbles and making new sounds every day. She gives us the biggest smiles and we never have to work for them. 

Kate is LOVING being on her stomach right now. She is so comfortable with her little legs kicking in back and a toy in front of her. She isn't sitting up yet and is still a little small for the Bumbo seat as she squirms right out! She's getting stronger everyday and I'm sure will be sitting on her own in no time. 

Since she was a few weeks old, Kate has been joining Will at his weekly music class and she absolutely LOVES it. She's so entertained and just kicks and smiles and has the best time. She can totally hang with the big kids.

This little girl is the snuggliest little nugget and I don't hate it one bit. She would nap in my arms at all nap times if I let her. She loves her legs lightly scratched and her face rubbed and her hair lightly combed after her bath. Such a pampered little thing! She's definitely a mommy's girl right now, too. 

During her sixth month, we also celebrated my birthday, Kate's first Easter and her little friend Nora was born! I cannot wait to see these sweet girls grow up together. 

We also went to the strawberry patch with Allison and Hazel! So much fun.

Watching Will and Kate together seriously makes my heart burst. They interact in the most special way and he can make her smile and laugh like no one else. It's crazy that I questioned if I could love a second baby as much as I love Will...I know every mom says that when they prepare for their second but it's so true. I have learned that love doesn't divide. It multiplies. 

Each month just keeps getting better and I love my days with my little pair of lovies. 

Happy 6 months, Princess Kate!
