6 Months update and Memorial Weekend!

Happy Memorial Day to everyone!! I am so thankful for the men and women that have served our country!
We had a great weekend with my parents! They came for the long weekend, and it was so nice to have them an extra day!
We have decided that Quinn looks so much like my mother. I am going to post some of her baby pictures soon to compare, but they definitely resemble each other. I miss them so much. It was so nice to have them in town. They were great and gave John and I a date night downtown on Saturday! Quinn loves her Nana and Paw Paw!

Quinn had her 6 month doctor appointment this week. Here she is before the shots:)

Our big girl weighs 17 pounds 4 ounces. She is 26 1/2 inches long, and she is in the 67% for height, weight, and head circumference. She's a proportional baby:)
She loves to blow raspberries with her mouth or on our arms. She started saying "da da" this past weekend. Her sweet "da da" was up with her at 2 in the morning a few morning this week due to what we hope is a quick growth spurt, and I think it helped to make it easier when she would look up at him to say "da da." I still swear that, "hey" was her first word. She started making that sound after we would say, "hey" to her when she was about 4 months old. She loves vegetables over fruits. Sweet Potatoes are her favorite, and green beans come in close second. She started making a, "mmmmm," sound after each bite this week. It's so cute to hear.  I made a couple of fresh purees at home last weekend, and she was not a fan. They were fruits though. I'm going to try some vegetables next time. Hopefully, it isn't my cooking:)  She has started showing a little seperation anxiety this past week. It was just a couple of times at daycare and home. I think it is because she is tired this week. She just seemed to want her mama. She seemed better by the end of the week when I found her playing with her best friend at daycare the other day.

I'm so glad that they will go through all the stages at daycare together. They are only 12 days apart, and they are right with each other in milestones. We need to schedule a play date with her parents over the summer since Quinn will be gone for 6 weeks.

We are having a blast with our little baby girl. I can't believe how quickly she is growing! I am definitely counting down the days until I'm out for summer. It is going to be so much fun to spend 6 weeks with her!

6 months and Mother's Day weekend!

My sweet girl turned 6 months this past Thursday!! The day after she started sitting up!
This was our action shot before we had to leave for work and daycare. As usual, we were running a little late:) More 6 month pictures to come after this weekend.

I got my first Mother's Day gift from Quinn yesterday! The daycare was so sweet to make them for all the mothers.

This makes me so happy!! I'm excited about this weekend! We are going to go for a walk downtown today, and then my sweet husband made reservations at Husk for tomorrow after church!! It couldn't be better.

Sitting Up all by Herself!!

This happened tonight!!
The daycare and I have been saying for weeks that it would be any day before she sat up on her own. It finally happened tonight! As you can hear, I was very excited!!  This, along with puttng her toes in her mouth, have been the fun new things to report.

Fun parent moment

So this is not a current picture of the current movies out at the theatre, but I didn't take a picture the other day.
John and I were driving by the movie theatre the other day, and we stopped at the red light before it. We both looked at the movies that were playing, and I think we only knew what half of them! There was a time that we knew everything about every movie months before they came out in theatre. Now, I couldn't tell you what is out or what is coming out. I'm sure that it will only get worse, but I'm ok with my new priorities.

PS. I ordered my mother's day gift this week! I'm getting an Ergo Sport baby carrier, and I'm so excited. I also ordered the  Baby Led Weaning book to try with Quinn over the summer. We'll see how it goes!
