6.5 months

Well I have somewhat neglected my blog this past month and I do apologize. I'm just having the time of my life with our baby girl and she distracts me most of the days. I also feel pretty boring these days so I haven't been very inspired to write about much.

But now that Maren is almost 7 months old... Here is what she is up to. First of all we are over half way to her 1st birthday. Sadness. I just want to bottle up all of her cuteness, and this might be my most favorite age yet. I love that I don't have to discipline her yet and she is just so stinking fun. She is still super easy and content I could not be more thankful.

-She still loves her carseat and will nap in it if need be
-Travels great
-Just this weekend started rolling from back to belly.... just a tad late ;)
-She can sit up for awhile by herself
-Loving any and all baby foods plus a few little tastes of my food sometimes
-Starting to master a sippy cup
-Loves her big girl stroller
-Weighs 14 1/2lbs and can't remember her length. But it was 10th percentile again
-Wears size 2 diapers
-Wears 0-3 month still and some 6-12month things
-She sleeps from 9:00pm-6:30/7a
-Has had 2 unfotunate ear infections :(
-She has about 5 bottles of formula a day every 3 1/2-4hrs
-Takes about a 2hr nap in the mornings in her swing and 30min- 1hr nap in afternoons. I hope to start weaning from the swing but its just so easy right now and I feel like keeps her flexible to still sleep on the go.
-Still has only 2 teeth but the top ones I keep thinking will be popping through soon
-She loves people and kids- no stranger danger yet
-Her laugh is contageous

This kid loves swinging!

sitting up!

Best pout pout face EVER! And yes I will always give her what she wants when she does this ;)

Dear Maren,
You are such a joy to have in our lives. Your sweet smile is the best thing ever and makes us smile everyday. You have a sweet personality about you and are also super fun. I love being able to spend my days with you and having our time together. I would be so sad to miss out on all the fun we've been having. Your love people makes me so happy and your laugh is the most amazing thing ever. Sweet girl, thanks for bringing a joy to our lives that we've never experienced. Time needs just slow down a bit!

Easter 2013

We celebrated Easter in Little Rock over the weekend. My grandmother is in the hospital and we wanted to make sure and get to see her.
Maren hammed it up all day on Easter! She was so glad Jesus is Risen and that He has victor over death! We went to church with my family and then went back and had a late lunch with some family friends.
obsessed with her dress! Her Granny D bough her that.

She loved her Easter basket!

Her Easter meal! :) yummy rice cereal!

what a poser!

Thankful the Lord died on the cross for our sins and the reason for celebrating this Holiday!
