Vera is 6 months old...

I mean how is life not perfect when you stare at that beautiful little miss that God created just for you to raise, disciple and love unconditionally - what a mighty task and what a sweet girl.  We are blessed beyond words....let me regain my composure and tell you what is up with our very special little lady in month 6 :)




Well this last picture sums up our little lady - she is a moving and shaking machine these days and gone are the days where she will sit and smile for the camera :)!  Luckily my new camera takes speedy shots of her sweetness :)
  • Vera is now a talker, oohing and ahing, "talking" to her brother, telling us what is on her mind and pursing her lips to say "oh" which is AH-dorable
  • She is rolling over like crazy.  She mastered rolling from her tummy to her back in the LAX airport on the way home from Australia
  • 2 days later she mastered rolling to get to a desired location and now she is mobile
  • She is still working on sleeping through the night...she likes to wake up at 3:30 or 5:30 for a tiny little snack (and mommy only feeds her for about 2 minutes these days - but she wakes up very mad - judge away :)
  • She goes to bed about 8:15 after her last feeding and the last few days has cut her evening cat nap but sometimes still takes one right after dinner for about 20 minutes
  • takes a 45 minute nap when we are on the go in the morning and a longer afternoon nap 1.5-2 hours generally
  • Wearing mostly 6 month clothes but with this beautiful summer weather I have put on a few of her 6-12 month clothes...they are too big in the waist yet though
  • She wears size 2 diapers
  • She is now eating rice cereal and a veggie at dinner.
  • We have tried green beans, peas, and sweet potatoes thus far and is starting to "like" her veggies
  • Rice cereal and her intestines are still working on getting along - poor thing :)
  • She loves her toys now and likes to play on her activity mat
  • She loves to be read to and sung to
  • She loves her big brother and he likes to give her sloppy kisses
  • She goes through about 4 diapers a day sometimes 1-2 more
  • She still has very tiny feet just like her brother
  • Loves to take off her socks and eat her toes
  • Puts everything in her mouth
  • grabs and pulls at her headbands to take them off (I don't think so :)
  • Still nurses 5 times a day (wake-up, 10:30, 1:30, 4:30, and bedtime)
  • Loves her pink fuzzy blanket and likes to fall asleep with it on her face and then I pull it next to her cheek
  • Laughs when you tickle her or play peek a boo
  • tries with all of her might to sit up but kind of leans to one side and the collapses over
  • likes to stand tall on her legs
She is just a lovable, happy, smiley all the time kind of gal and we love her so much and squeeze her and hug her everyday because she is growing way too fast in our opinion.  We are so thankful to God for her and her brother - what a true blessing from Above they are!
