Grace, I can’t believe you are going to be 6 months old in a few days. A half a year! Oh my. Time is flying. I could write volumes about how grateful I am for the last 6 months - the very hard times and the times I felt my heart would explode with joy. Lately, you are sitting up by yourself, singing and babbling like crazy - lots of babababadadadaaa, laughing, grabbing everything in sight, and…. whining. You are learning how to get what you want : )  We have your 6 month appt on Monday (the same day daddy takes his big board exam in Louisville!) and we have a lot to report. You are still eating every two hours during the day - ie a LOT. About 8-10 bottles a day. You go to sleep around 10pm and wake up at 4am to eat again. You doze till about 6 and then it’s playtime! If you want to start sleeping more, we won’t complain : ) But, we feel so blessed no matter how much you sleep. You are happy almost all the time. It’s so easy to get you to smile. That is wonderful. I could watch you discover the world all day long. You’ve transitioned from loving Twinkle Twinkle Little Star to Row Row Row Your Boat. This provides a challenge for Mommy as there is only one verse to Row Row Row Your Boat. I sing it over and over to you anyway though because you loooove it. We’ve been having a blast together with the new Bob jogging stroller I got us. It’s like your chariot and Mommy can run really well with it. It has been so refreshing to get out more and not feel chained to a bulky stroller. We have a big weekend ahead with friends from church and the outdoor service and very Southern pig-pickin’ on Sunday. Then, next week after daddy’s big test, we’re taking you on your first airplane ride to Pensacola to see Grama Celia, Grampa David, Great Grama Bunny and Uncle Stephen… and a lot of kitties and a chicken. Daddy and I can’t wait to take you to the beach and see you explore new things! OK, sweet pea. Night night. We had a fun day together. This was us in the park this afternoon and you laughing as usual. I love you. Love, Mommy
