Valentine's Day

Kenadie, you are 6 months old! I can't believe it. You are getting to be such a big girl. You are into everything now, trying to pull yourself up and grab everything in sight. Sitting up by yourself is no problem for you now. The doctor was so impressed by the way you can sit up without supporting yourself with your hands. You've been eating solids for a couple of months. When we first started you loved apples and bananas but now you have decided you no longer care for them. You love sweet potatoes, green beans, peaches, and chicken. You go crazy for puffs! You can't quite feed yourself the puffs yet but if I hold one, you'll take my hand and guide it to your mouth. Its adorable!! Seperation anxiety is in full swing...if I put you down and walk away, you start crying until I come pick you up. If I hand you over to someone else, you cry and reach for me. Its actually very sweet you love your mama so much! You are loving your two doggies more and more. You give them nice gentle pets and laugh when they lick you. I think books are your favorite toy.. you love to hold them and "turn the pages." You are sleeping through the night (knock on wood). You go to bed when we do around 10 or 11...a habit we need to break, but you wake up anywhere from 7:30-8:15 which is pretty nice. You are very smiley and just so so so sweet. You started swimming last saturday and I think you liked it. You weren't super smiley but you didnt cry at all. We even dunked your face underwater a few times! When you came up, your eyes were huge and surprised and you did a few dramatic coughs. 

Mommy and daddy love you more than words can describe. You are such an amazing girl and the best blessing in the world. Watching you grow and develop everyday is better than we ever imagined!

I haven't posted much lately because we have been so busy! We are always on the go and thats the way we like it! Kenadie is hilarious. She is laughing a lot and it sounds like a huge deep inhale/gasp. Best sound ever. And she has little "conversations" with us and just babbles on and on in her baby language. She is sleeping 7-9 hours usually at night...last night she slept 10 hours! She usually goes to bed when we go to bed around 11:30. But she is always pretty fussy at night so last night we decided to try to put her to bed early and see what would happen. So we started her bedtime routine around 8pm...Bath, swaddle, eat while reading Goodnight Moon. We brought her Rock n Play (what she sleeps in) and our rain sound machine into her nursery, put her in it, turned on the monitor, and went downstairs. The girl slept until I went and got her up at 6:30! I'm wondering how long she would have slept if I hadn't gotten her up. I did our morning routine of getting her up, unswaddling her and changing her diaper, then reswaddling, feed, and back to bed for 2-3 hours. She is an awesome baby! We are trying the same thing tonight, except she is up in her room asleep now but has woken up twice already. Hopefully that was the last time and she will sleep til morning again!

Here's what we've been up to lately

She LOVES sucking on either her fingers/whole fist or my knuckles

Morning stretches!

Can't get over this face...

Looove this smiley girl. So rare to get an after-bath smile! Usually she cries so hard after we get her out of the bath. 

She was very entertained in our playgroup...

More naps with daddy

Loves her stroller bugs!

Put em up!

I went up to Napa for a friend's bachelorette party so Kenadie was home with daddy. He sent me this pic of her in the morning!

A few nights ago, she was so sleepy she fell asleep during her bath!
