Happy 1/2 Birthday Ada Marie!
I know I say this all the time and I will probably keep saying it, but I just can’t believe how fast time has gone! And I can’t believe how much Ada has grown and changed. I just want time to slow down, so I can enjoy each new thing she does and each new discovery she makes.
My sweet little Ada doesn’t seem so little anymore! She is sitting up on her own, mostly; and she is eating solids like a champ! For a while, I was worried because she wasn’t sitting up on her own and she didn’t have any interest to reach for things. Then 3 days ago, it was like, she woke up and was sitting on her own and getting her hands on everything she could reach! She has been sleeping through the night every night now for almost 3 weeks. It has been glorious! Naps are still kind of spotty, but she takes at least 2 good naps (45 min each) every day. Not a lot of free time for this mama, during the day, but she sleeps through the night, so I’ll take it!
This age has been so much fun! I love that she is sitting up and grabbing everything. She is so much fun to play with right now! She loves rattlers, stuff animals and books. Peek-a-boo is still her favorite game and it is the game that her and Randy play every night before bedtime. I love how happy she is pretty much all the time. She just laughs and smiles all the day long – makes my heart melt every time!
My favorite “new thing” she does now is how she shows affection towards us. A few times now, she has grabbed my face and pulled it down to her wide open mouth. I think she is trying to kiss me! It seriously the sweetest thing in all the world! I just about cry every time she does it. She is all the time grabbing my face and pulling herself closer to me. It hurts when she does it, but I don’t care. I am enjoying every stinging moment of it, because I know she is just trying to show me some loving! 😉 Randy went on a camping trip last weekend and when he came home she just touched and patted his face over and over again. It was so sweet to watch!
We love you sweet little Ada! Every day we grow more and more in love with you; you complete us! Happy 6 Months, my love!
