Six Months

HARPER - YOU ARE SIX MONTHS OLD!
WHAT ARE YOU UP TO THESE DAYS???
  • You weigh around 16 lbs (25-50%)
  • Still in a size 2 diaper
  • You wear size 6-9 months clothes
  • Overnight - you have become the Happiest baby!! You just smile all the time. And you smile at everyone you see. You like people to notice you and smile back. I have a feeling you are going to be a social butterfly and I'm SO happy about that.
  • You just started taking a pacifier a week ago and you are now addicted. It makes life happier for everyone.
  • Your favorite song these days is "This little light of mine". You can be screaming your lungs off and if I sing it to you - you will calm down and just start laughing.
  • You really love your exersaucer. You go to town playing in it and you used to just kind of slump over but now you stand up straight! You like to sit in it and watch Praise Baby on TV. I call it "watching a drive in movie".
  • You can sit facing out in your stroller now and I think you really like that.
  • You still love to talk really loud but now instead of just noises - it's starting to sound more like words.
  • Last night - the night you turned 6 months - you slept in your bed for the very first time.
  • You just had your first couple of road trips including your first stay in a hotel and you did so GREAT!
  • You have been eating rice cereal and applesauce for about 2 weeks now and you are a GOOD eater! We are going to start veggies this week and I have a feeling you will do so good!
  • You are starting to have such a personality and I can tell you are going to be so fun. I can't wait to see the little girl you will be. I know that you will bring me joy every day of my life. Your daddy and I love you so much that we almost can't stand it.
  • Your grandparents are pretty crazy about you too. I'm afraid they are all 4 going to move in with us just to be near you every day.
I can't believe you are half a year old!!!! I hope the next 6 months don't go by so fast. We are going to be celebrating your first birthday WAY before I'm ready! I love you so much Precious Girl!!!!

Her tutu is so adorable!!! What a cutie! I just now realized how close in age she is to my daughter. I thought mine was so much older, but mine is 8 months old. :) They could be friends, if we didn't live so far apart.. :)

Erica said...

have you thought about calling "show us where you live" fridays something like "show us your life" fridays? that way it can include everything. just a thought

i always appreciate your happy and optimistic blogs. they are so encouraging!

Wow! Where did those 6 months go? I first found your blog when Miss Harper was in the hospital. Look at her now!

Love her pink tutu!

Take care,

Nikki Cogg said...

Kelly I've said it before and I'll say it again- you make me SO excited to be a mom!! Little Harper is precious, how funny it is to see how much she has grown month to month! I even show my husband (he's not quite ready for kids yet.. haha we're still newlyweds) and he agrees that Harper is a darling baby! I feel like I'm learning a lot from you, and I'm taking many many mental notes :) Have a great Friday!

Lucky in Love said...

Oh Kelly,

I just cannot believe how big she is getting! She is simply gorgeous and these are my very favorite posts that you do.

Thank you for being such a wonderful example of what a mother should be...you are such an inspiration to me :)

XOXO

Alexis said...

Happy Half Birthday, Sweet Girl!

And congrats to Mom and Dad!

StacieLeigh said...

Congrats to Harper and all of you!

My daughter was born in February and seeing how old Harper is getting is scary because my Elaina is right behind her!

Girl, if you are still having blowouts (I mean if Harper is, haha!) you have GOT to move her up a diaper size! Elaina is 15 lbs and can still fit in a 2 easily, but she was having poo blowouts all the time, so I moved her up to a 3 at 14 lbs and they STOPPED cold! (I know the weight limit on the diaper package says you have a long time, but after 4 kids I have to tell you-- Ignore the package and put on the diaper that fits and stops the leaks!)

*Sigh* I'm feeling really sad that I have not remembered to take the monthly pictures like you've done with Harper... It's so special to have that record!

Christa said...

Happy 6 month birthday Harper! You are way too adorable!

How did you do with her being in her own room last night?

First of all she is the most adorable little girl. I love the outfit and the six months of pictures. What a great way to keep a baby book of memories. She will always have this to look at.
Glad she is so happy & believe me the pacifier is a good thing.

Happy SIX Months Harper.

Happy 6 Months Harper.....She is precious!!!

the Spocks said...

Happy six months!! The next few months will also go by fast. She will go from sitting to crawling to walking.

My daughter is also social, although I have mixed emotions about it. I really do not want her saying hi to everyone when we live in a big city.

Amanda said...

I can't believe she's 6 months!

Jenglamgirl said...

Love the middle shot with her mouth open like she is shouting! I love how you put her sign in her crip with her name and let us all know how old she is! so sweet!

Aww, they grow up so fast and do so much in the first year! Our granddaughter is 10 weeks old now. Seems like she was just born.

Happy 6 month birthday, Harper! You are a delight to all.

Congrats mama on getting her into her own bed :) I'm sure it was tougher on you than it was on her! She is truly a joy to read about and to look at. I can only imagine how your heart just swells with gladness just getting to be her mommy every day!

Kari said...

Awwww! 6 months old!! Yay! She has gotten so big! It flies by, doesn't it? Audrey just turned 5 months and Charlotte is almost 2 and a half! It is crazy!

Courtney said...

Happy 6 months to Harper. I love her tutu. She is just getting so expressive.

Girl with the Curlz said...

Happy 6 months little Harper. You are so adorable. Mommy and daddy are going to have to fight the boys off pretty soon (ha-ha)

Jacquie said...

Can a 6 month old BE any cuter?? I love the updates and she is LOOKING so much older in her photos. It just gets "gooder" from here!

~Mrs. Guru~ said...

Such a sweet and precious baby!

Happy Half Year!

Oh, she is just precious!

MICHELE said...

I love your blog! I honestly started reading b/c your daughter and my daughter are only 1 month apart (my daughter was born Feb. 15th (almost a Valentine's Baby that I hoped for...).
Anyway, your daughter is such a cutie, they seem like they are the same baby in a lot of ways, so I am hoping by my daughter's 6 month b-day she too turns into the happy baby we know she is! Keep up the awesome blogging!

Donna said...

Happy Half Birthday Harper!!
What a milestone when you consider where her first days were. I know she is a joy and a blessing to you and your family. And by "family", I mean all of us Bloggy Aunts, too. You had a wonderful idea when you started taking pictures every month to document her growth. Wish I had thought of that xxx years ago! You think the first six months went by fast...it will be six years before you know it.
Keeping you in my heart in Ga.
Donna

Adam, April & Aidan said...

Kelly, A girlfriend of mine and I just started reading your blog a few months ago. We are now ADDICTED! I just have to tell you, that girl is probably the prettiest, well dressed, happy baby girl I have EVER seen! You are so BLESSED! I am hoping for a baby girl to join the family soon and I have written down so many of the websites you get Harper's clothes from! Too CUTE! Thanks again for sharing her with us.

Tara G. said...

Oh, Kelly! Just keep enjoying it all!

Lynn said...

Kelly,

As always, I thoroughly enjoy reading your blog and "watching" precious Harper grow up. She is just the most adorable, pretty baby!! Wow, it's hard to imagine she's 6 months old!! Happy 6 month Birthday, Harper!!

Sunni at The Flying Mum said...

Clara sends sweet wished to Harper for their 6 month birthday! She is precious, Kelly! Motherhood is such a joy!

angeljoy said...

Oh, such a sweet girl! Such a blessing to see this preciousness that we've prayed so hard for...

Sara said...

It won't be long until she has that pink card with her age on it in her mouth! My middle boy always had to hear "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" when he was fussy. He had the same reaction...turned off the tears and just smiled! Now he is playing spring and fall baseball! They grow up so fast :(

Colleen said...

I can't believe our baby Harper is already six months old! She is just too dang cute! I know you and Scott are so proud of this precious little girl. She stole so many hearts from the first day she was born!

The Cochran Fam said...

What a beautiful girl! Kelly, how did you post those monthly pictures altogether like that?
