Sippy cups and teething crackers oh my!

Lately you have been enjoying your sippy cup, we normally give you some water or prunce juice mixed with water.  You have been getting pretty good at holding it by yourself, it's just so hard to believe you are already drinking from a "big girl" cup.  You are teething right now too so Mommy bought you some teething crackers, you are a huge fan of those.  You love to chomp away at them, the only problem is they get mushy and slip out of your hands and your little attitude comes out and you scream until I find it, mushy and all, hand it back to you, and the cycle repeats.

6 months old!

Well as usual I cannot believe you're another month older. To "celebrate" your 6 month birthday we went to Moments and Memories to get your pictures taken, then went to visit Tammy and Adelia and went out to lunch afterwards.  It was a fun day and Daddy took off work so it made the day even better. 
 According to the Dr. you are developing right on schedule physically, you can sit up unassisted, roll over both ways and you are beginning to creep, but you can't quite figure out how to go forward, lately you just travel backwards. As far as your cognitive and social development you are actually ahead of schedule, doing things like; looking for people when they leave the room, looking for a toy when you drop it and crying when I leave your eyesight. You also are dealing with some stranger anxiety too, you look for our approval before you give strangers your pretty smile. So, good news according to the Dr as you have began to develop a sense of object permenance.  You weigh 15lbs 7oz and you are 25in long. 

alrighty Mommy I'm done with the pictures

West Des Moines

This weekend you had your first ROAD TRIP to West Des Moines, Iowa to visit your friends Isaac and Noelle and help celebrate Isaac's 3rd birthday.  You did well in the car on the way up, slept for awhile ( we were hoping you'd sleep the whole time since it was your bedtime) then you were up for the last hour or so of the trip.  Luckily you ate and played with Mommy in the backseat so it wasn't too bad.  You really enjoyed watching Isaac and Noelle play and even got to "play" with them. 
You loved spending time with Mommy's friends Steph and Eli.  You even got to see Steph and Ryan at lunch at the mall and Isaac's party.  Mommy and Daddy tried to have to sleep in the pack and play but you weren't having it so you spent the 2 nights we were there in bed with us!  Oh boy did you love that, you snuggled on Mommy both nights and made it a little bit hard for me to sleep! =)
We drove back home Sunday afternoon and of course after all of the excitement you slept the whole way to KC.

So much FUN!

You are so much fun lately, not that you weren't before but it just seems like your little personality is coming out in full forse .  I honestly LOVE spending the summer days with you and I am not, not, not looking forward to school starting back up again! 
You are so funny, I love the sounds you make, hearing you talk and seeing you interact with Daddy, the puppies and those around you.
You make Mommy laugh every single day.

Happy 4th of July!

Yesterday was your first 4th of July!  Mommy and Daddy took you to the Parkville 4th parade, then we visited Grandma and Grandpa Cook, after that we headed to the pool!  You are starting to love everything, you are constantly looking around, smiling that beautiful smile and taking it all in!
I cannot tell you how much I love watching you grow and change!
