Happy Half Birthday!

My own darling daughter is 6 months old today. I cannot believe it. Everyone tries to warn you how fast it goes by (and it can get annoying at times) but you cannot fully understand it until you witness those developments and growths day by day. She started not even on the growth percentile chart to now in the 30th percentile. She has gorgeous blue eyes accompanied by long dark eyelashes. I love every detail about her.

Things she likes . . .
  • Hanging upside down
  • Water bottles
  • Mirrors
  • Getting a new nappy
  • Waking up
  • Singing and dancing
  • Angry birds
  • Grabbing my nose, glasses, and lips
  • Blowing raspberries

Things she doesn't like . . .
  • When I don't switch sides fast enough when breastfeeding
  • When mom and dad don't share what they are eating or drinking
  • Nasal aspirators
  • Teething
  • Gas

My Baby Shower

 I had one of the BEST baby showers! I never got one with the twins so I had this long built-up expectation of what mine would be like. It exceeded all my wildest dreams. My sister did a great job and had to put up with a lot from me. I had a folder on my computer dedicated to all my inspirations and thoughts and ended up emailing my sister ALL of it. I was very picky about not having a theme because I didn't want it to be cheesy, but I thought it was very mod, tasteful, beautiful and unique. So big thanks again to my sister (who was 3 days behind me pregnancy wise) and all my other family members and friends that helped prepare, set up, and those who showed up and spoiled me rotten!






It was one of the best days that I can remember.
