Sweet Princess Emery is 6 months old!!!

Sweet Princess Emery,

Today you are six months old, half a year. It feels like just yesterday that you came into this world, just a tiny, beautiful baby girl. Like I just held you in my arms for the very first time and looked into your beautiful blue eyes. Yet, it wasn't just yesterday anymore. Time is going too fast, you are growing too fast. Every day you hit new milestones and it makes me so happy and so sad at the same time. I wish I could bottle these times up for the future because I know they all too soon, they will be just a memory.

You are now able to completely sit on your own for several minutes at a time. You actually do really well until something gets your attention that you decide you want. Then you usually end up reaching for it, which causes you to loose your balance and topple over. Totally adorable.

You can easily get to where you want to go by rolling and nothing is too far for you. You are really trying to get your legs up under you for crawling, but you don't have it mastered just yet. You do manage to push on the ground with your feet and scoot your body several inches though. I'm always totally impressed.

You are doing so well with eating and many times we can't get your food in your mouth fast enough. You've got a little bit of a temper and that is usually when it shows up (well, then and when you aren't getting your way or what you want). You try to feed yourself, but end up gagging yourself so we don't let you do it just yet.

We took you to the Bluebonnets for the first time (more pics to come) and while you were fine sitting on your big brother's lap, you wanted nothing to do with them by yourself. The picture below is the best we got of you all alone, the rest you were screaming in... hysterically!

There are so many things I want to tell you and that I want to put on here so I remember, but most importantly I want you to know that you have blessed me so much by being my daughter. You make my days brighter and my smiles bigger. You and your brother are more wonderful than I ever imagined. My life would never be complete without you sweet baby girl, please always know that.

I love you Princess.
