Six Months Old!Posted: December 3, 2010
Half a year old… I find myself more and more frequently asking God to slow things down. Just a little bit. I feel like I need more moments to really soak up the sweetness and littleness and the preciousness of having a baby in our home. I must say I almost just as frequently ask God to remind me that I will get a full night of sleep again and that when I do, this zombie-like feeling will elude me. 🙂 Our Noelle is… words can not do justice to this little one. What a wonderful, happy, smart, curious, hungry, round little bundle we have been entrusted with!
Our 6 month old girl is right on track weighing in at 16.2 pounds (50th percentile) and measuring 26 3/4 inches (70th percentile)! Shots as always were brutal. Sweet little Ava even asked to be excused from watching her baby sister get shots and then reassured her repeatedly that she would be OK afterward. It is such a wonder to watch our girls build a relationship. I know that they are young and that things won’t always be so sweet, but this ‘sister’ thing suits them both so beautifully. Kurt and I watch as their personalities are enhanced and sweetened with proximity to one another. Ava is tolerant of anything Noelle throws her way, hair grabbing and slobbering on her dolls included. They seem to light up in each others company and our prayer is that God will keep them close. What a blessing that they have each other!
