First of all, I can't believe my baby is approaching her half birthday. I still want to cry every time she outgrows another of her adorable little outfits. Or moves up a size in diapers. Or does something unbelievably "old" like sleeping on her side with her little foot propped up on the crib, putting in her own paci, or holding her own bottle. And oh man, the waterworks when I dare to look back at the teeny tiny newborn Peanut pictures in my phone.
6 month favorites:
3. singing games -"Pat-a-cake" and "I'm a little teapot" really make her giggle and squeal.
4. teething toys - Mommy & Daddy's fingers are her first choice, but she will also attack (as Daddy puts it, "zombie style") Sophie the Giraffe, this teething necklace, the Razbaby RaZberry teether, and anything else she can sink her gums into! She is trying so hard to cut teeth right now.
8. getting groceries - Annalyn loves the grocery store for a number of reasons. She gets to come see Mama at work (or Tammy & Jennifer if I'm off that day) and all my coworkers tell her how cute/funny/sweet/happy she is. She gets to be worn in a baby carrier and kick like crazy. She gets to reach for everything as I put it in the cart. It often becomes a big game of peek-a-boo. I like to tell her about all the food and what we are going to make with it, especially the fruits and veggies I buy for her purees.
