Princess Emery is 6 months, 2 weeks old!

Sweet Princess Emery,

Today you are 6 months and 2 weeks old!! You are growing every single day and I can tell you are very proud of all the things you are learning to do. You can now sit, unassisted, for long stretches of time while you play. You are also trying to crawl and I have a feeling that once you start, there will be no stopping you!!

You are really starting to notice things that your brother has and 9 times out of 10, you think they are way cool and want them. He is not very fond of that at all. I think for the first time yesterday, we had the first of many arguments to come over the years! He was coloring and you wanted the paper. I'm sure you can see how that played out!

We had your 6 months pictures taken on Saturday and I think they are going to turn out wonderful!!! Of course we all know you are very photogenic and there has never been a bad picture taken of you. ;o) These pictures are ones that your Daddy took, I think he did a great job and I love the one on top where we can see your two bottom teeth. You are so stinkin' cute!!! However, you are more than just cute and I always want you to remember that. You are smart and sweet and have a good soul. Don't ever let yourself be defined by your looks baby girl!!

You have now been fighting that ear infection for a week and I noticed you were pulling on both ears a lot. You haven't been cranky or running a fever, but I was still worried so I had Daddy take you back to the Dr. this afternoon. Unfortunately your right ear doesn't look any better and now your left ear is infected too. :o( To top it off you also have thrush thanks to the antibiotics. So we're on to a different antibiotic and thrush meds. Hopefully this will kick it to curb! I'd also like to mention that while Daddy was backing out of the parking space, he backed into a car that was parked behind him (illegally, but parked just the same). So, I guess you've now officially been in your first accident too.

Love you a zillion times over baby girl!
