My baby is 6 months old!

How is my itty bitty baby already 6 months old??? 6 MONTHS! It really does seem like just yesterday that I was online everyday looking for stuff for my baby and her nursery! It seems like just yesterday I was pulling into MTMC with a huge lump in my throat not knowing what to expect. It seems like just yesterday everyone was coming to see this little bitty blessing that God had sent to our family and that I instantly had a motherly instinct over! What happened to just yesterday....let me just tell you...time flies once you have a baby! I know I have heard people say that over and over throughout the years, but it has really been put into perspective now that I'm going through it!

Brandon and I used to sit and talk about how we thought our lives might change once a baby came along...we were wrong! We wondered how much sleep we would lose and if it'd be too much...we were wrong! We thought it'd be super hard to get anywhere and we'd have to stay at home much more that we did...we were wrong!

Harper is honestly the BEST thing that has ever happened to us! We love each other, but the love we feel for each other now is so much deeper than it was before. My heart is bigger and more full than I ever thought possible! She is a wonderful baby....wonderful! Makes me want a whole houseful! ha:) I am so happy and blessed, I feel like I could just BUST!

So, what's Harper up to these days...

-She eats rice cereal twice a day and about 4-5 six ounce bottles each day.

-She is a supported sitter!

-She wants to crawl soooooo badly. She gets up on all fours and just rocks back and forth. She can move her legs, but she hasn't figured out how to move her arms yet! It's only a matter of time!

-She sleeps wonderfully! Usually 8-10 hours at night, and typically 2 good naps each day!

-She never cries or fusses unless she is tired or hungry!

-She weighs 17.4 lbs. and is 26 1/4 in. long!

-She is a social butterfly, but loves her mommy and daddy too!

-She laughs and giggles at everything!

-She is becoming very mobile....VERY! We have to keep a very close eye on her at every single second now!-She is the absolute light of our lives and we don't know what we did before she came into this world! We thank God each and every day for blessing us with such a sweet, beautiful baby girl and for choosing us to be her parents! We could not be who or where we are today without His help and guidance, and we owe everything to Him!

Happy 6 months, baby girl! Momma and Daddy love you more than anything in the whole, wide world!

xoxo, Kara

p.s.-Sorry this post is late but I was waiting on her pics and her dr's appt! :)

Happy 6 months Harper! Her pictures are so cute as usual! The first 6 months go fast, but wait for the next 6 months, they FLY! Tehy change so much over the next 6 months that it seems like your life is on fast forward. However, it is so wonderful and exciting. And you become so proud of all there milestones. Enjoy!
