6 Months

Little Miss is 6.5 months old.... holy crap! And how did that happen? I know I say it every time I do a picture post, but honestly... it's the weirdest paradox of "I can't remember life before her" and "wasn't she like 6 weeks old 2 days ago?".

She's a big girl these days, in size 9 month clothes and size 3 diapers (we love Huggies Little Movers.... and BumGenius 3.0 Mediums). She's clocking in at 17.5 lbs and 26.75 inches, and her hair is starting to grow in!! She's always had a bit of super fine hair, but it's getting a little longer and looks like maybe it's coming in a bit.... but I can't tell what color it's going to be. It looks like it's maybe a light brown? And her eyes are a beautiful mix of blue and brown... the outer portion is steely blue and the inside, right around the pupil, is a beautiful golden brown. Sometimes they look almost green.

But you're really here for the pictures, right? :-) We did her 6 month portraits a few days after her 6 month birthday with Jenni at Forever-Yesterday Photography. She also did Baby Girl's newborn shoot - we love her work and I highly recommend her to everyone in the Maryland area!! She is fabulous to work with and managed to capture all of Baby Girl's best expressions. Here are a few of my favorites:

She took a TON of photos in a variety of outfits and poses and I love every single one of them. She also did a few family shots and a few "Mommy & Baby" and "Daddy & Baby" shots, as well. I was thrilled to death to be there with my girl... as such, every single picture includes my "SO EFFING THRILLED I CAN'T EVEN STAND IT" huge, gummy smile and crinkled nose.

I don't even care because OMG I LOVE THAT BABY. Also? I never got fabulous pregnancy hair, but that meant I never lost any hair postpartum. Clearly, that was good... and magically, my hair now grows at the speed of light. I love it.

What else does my 6 month old do? She sits on her own, loves apples and pears, "talks" allllllll day long, loves to help me sing "Head, Shoulders, Knees & Toes", and loves the dog. She also has the sweetest laugh, everything goes into her mouth, and she doesn't roll over. She also still hates tummy time.
