Blair is 6 Months old!

She is definitely my little wild child. And I love her to pieces! I hope she always knows just how wonderful she truly is. Every morning I look forward to seeing that smile and hear her tell me about her night. (She's a jabber queen that's for sure!). She lights up my world and I'm so blessed to call her mine.

We aren't getting shots until the end of the month, for different reasons, but when we do we will let you know all her stats! :)

Here's what this little munchkin has been up to lately!

-Can pull herself up! She's very good at it, but she gets excited and lets go and bam! Falls and hits her face. (We don't like that very much).
 -Is so close to crawling it hurts. Gets up and rocks but then nothing.
-Can still get around by rolling and lunging.
-Can sit up by herself when she's laying down.
-Tries to lunge off the bed EVERYDAY. 
-Loves her walker!
-Tries to stand up by herself with no help, she really wants to walk so bad. 
-Wears 6-12 Month clothing.
-Loves going outside and playing with the grass.
-She's obsessed with grass actually, she sees it and it's all she cares about.
-Eating lots of solids, she likes vegetables more than fruits (are we sure she's mine?! haha!)
-Tries to drink out of our water bottles.
-Loves swimming in her little duck pool.
-Loves going for walks in her stroller.
-Tries to lunge out of the basket at stores, thank the Lord we strap her in!
-No teeth yet!
-Drools like it's her job.
-Doesn't take very good naps anymore (Sleep regression?)
-Loves airplane.
-Is impossible to change her diaper or get her dressed because she rolls away then tried to crawl away...all while screaming and kicking. (Attitude!)
-Can sit in highchairs at restaurants.
-Obsessed with her cousin Kharter, I'm actually jealous of his powers to make her laugh nonstop every time he talks to her.
-Sleep Regression has hit this household hard. Refuses to sleep by herself for more than an hour at a time. That means she's in bed with this momma every night. (ooops!) When dad gets back we will be in trouble! Haha.

This girl keeps me on my toes that's for sure and I wouldn't have it any other way (well maybe she could please sleep in her crib all night again...that'd be nice!). I love watching her grow and discover new things everyday. She's everything I dreamed of and more!

Blair is 5 Months old! And she definitely has the personality to show it! She is such a ham these days, she laughs all the time and has a new "happy scream" that she does ALL day....and absolutely loves to do it nonstop when we are at a restaurant! She screams in delight almost every time she sees another baby, and it melts my heart. She's already a social butterfly, this girl loves everybody.

She almost rolled off the bed the other day. I set her toward the side of the bed near the wall. I always put pillows up by the edge though, just in case. I was in the bathroom brushing my teeth and I heard her screaming with joy. I looked in there and she was just rolling toward the edge of the bed. Haha. I almost died. Thankfully the pillows were there to stop her. And I guess I will be brushing my teeth while sitting on the bed with her from now on!

The Little Mermaid book she's holding is the very first thing we ever bought her. I had just found out I was pregnant (about 8 weeks) and we were shopping at Nordstrom in Virginia. I of course wanted to look at the baby stuff and came across this book! Jacob told me to buy it and I said "no what if baby is a boy?" and he said, "This little baby is definitely a girl, I just know it. Please buy her the book." And so I did. I knew in my heart that he was right. That book will always have so much meaning to me, and when she is no longer interested in it I will store it away and give it to her when she is older.

-She is rolling over nonstop...and I mean nonstop. It's a struggle to change a diaper these days!
-She is a jabber jaws. Loves to talk your ear off...and scream your ear off.
-Is so curious and eager to learn. I love watching her explore!
-Loves to be read to and to look at the books and feel them. 
-Loves bananas, but will eat pretty much any fruits or veggies I give her...most of the time with a disgusted face.....she still prefers milky milk!
-Is sitting up like a pro. 
-Lunges toward things while she is sitting up. Always trying to get somewhere!
-Is trying to start crawling. Fully extending her arms and trying to get up on those knees, but they keep slipping out from under her (which is fine with me, you are too young to be crawling missy!)
-Scoots around on her belly.
-Puts everything in her mouth.
-Loves bathtime and water.
-Hates being in her carseat.
-Reaches for mommy and daddy and whines when she wants to be picked up (I secretly love this)
-Can sit in highchairs at restaurants.
-Loves going on walks in her stroller.
-Loves being outside.
-Drooling 24/7/365
-Sleeps through the night sometimes and sometimes not.
-Loves getting her hands on things she's not supposed to have.
-Thinks looking at herself in the mirror is the best thing ever. (I think she thinks it's a baby friend!)
-Gnaws on her thumb like there is no tomorrow.
-Has beautiful blue eyes.
-When she rolls over she does the fish swim (as seen above) it's so cute. Has her arms and legs out to the sides going crazy. I love it!
-Loves to chew on her toes.
-Loves being tickled!
-Can eat yogurt bites.
-Is wearing size 3 diapers!

This little girl lights up my life. Everyday she is doing something new and different, I absolutely love watching her grow! I seriously can't get enough.

Blair is 4 Months old! Oh my! Where did my tiny baby go? She's growing up so fast it's crazy! Every single day she is doing something new and making new noises. I can't get enough of this mom thing, it's pretty amazing.

We went to the doctor last week and she weighed 14 pounds and 11 ounces, and was 26 inches tall!

For a few days, including the day I took these pictures, Blair was being a little moody. I joke that I already have a teenager on my hands, haha. But really.....smiling one second, crying the next! I think she is having teething pains (my poor baby). She was totally over taking these pictures about 3 minutes in. I'm lucky to have gotten so many good ones though!

So some milestones Blair has hit recently (even though most are mentioned in the Easter post!)

-Officially laughs! It's the best sound I've ever heard!
-She can sit-up by herself for about 20 seconds, and the time is getting longer and longer every day!
-Makes the cutest little baby noises ever.
-Rolls over from back to tummy nonstop, then screams because she hates being on her tummy. (It really is a fun game we like to play, where I roll her back over and she rolls herself back over...ha)
 -Loves bath time, she is my little mermaid!
-Hates riding in the carseat, it's a 20 minute scream fest everytime.
-Loves to stand-up with some help!
-Loves her stand-up (jumper thing?) she just got from her nanny and papa!
-Needs her momma when she's really upset (I LOVE that I'm the only one that can calm her down sometimes).
-Smiles the biggest, gummiest smile every time she sees me (melts my heart!)
-She loves to feel things, she will sit there and pet you or your clothes for the longest time, it's cute!
-Loves to eat smashed up bananas! 
-Had stopped sleeping through the night, which was pure torture because we were so spoiled, so we decided to add cereal to her milk at night....and voila! Back to sleeping through the night! Yay!
-Loves going for walks in her stroller, she coos and looks all around her the whole time. My little explorer!
-Loves being outside period!
-When I lay her on a blanket outside she gets so excited and can't stop kicking, smiling, and cooing!

-She absolutely loves her cousin Kharter (he's 4). I told Jacob that Blair was in love with Kharter, and Kharter said, "I'm in love too! I'm in love with baby Blair!" It was kinda the cutest thing ever.

Happy First Easter Blair! 

This was definitely the best Easter Weekend I've ever had! Blair just makes life so much more fun (and exhausting..but she's worth it!). She was so excited about her Easter basket from the Easter Bunny, it was so cute! Even though she probably doesn't really know what's going on, you could tell how excited she was about her basket, books, and stuffed bunny! She just has the best personality!

She's almost 4 months, and she finally gave us her first real laugh this weekend while we were taking her pictures!! It is the bet sound I've ever heard! Jacob was making funny noises trying to get her to smile, but this girl had a fit of the giggles instead! Haha, it was so adorable. I snapped a million pictures of this girl's perfect laugh...then I thought, "why am I not recording this!?" So I did!  I'm so glad we have that memory we can look back on for the rest of our lives! Jacob tries to make those same noises to get her to laugh....but she's over it haha. She doesn't find it funny anymore, we will have to find something else to get those giggles out of her!

Last weekend after church Blair rolled over from her back to tummy for the first time, but she couldn't get her arm out from underneath her....this weekend after church she rolled over from back to tummy and successfully got her arm out from underneath her! We were so proud of her and so excited!! 

Blair also tried her first "solid" food this weekend, bananas! She liked them too! It's so cute to see her face when I give them to her, she just has no idea what it is haha. She also had some this morning after her morning bottle, I can't believe how fast she is growing up. Makes this momma a little sad. I'm so happy I have a husband that works his butt off so I don't have to miss a thing! And I'm thrilled that Miss Blair waits until daddy is home to do all these firsts so he can enjoy them too!

I'll never be able to put into words just how much I love you little lady, you bring me so much joy and you complete our little family! I love you!
