6 Months Old

My beautiful baby girl you are 6 months old! Mommy is having a hard time accepting that you are half a year old 😞 Where does the time go? Mommy and Daddy love watching you grow and learn about the world around you. Your little personality is really starting to shine and it just makes me smile. You act so much like me. I kind of had a feeling this would happen to me one day. God really does have a sense of humor. You are very eager to do things on your own Miss Independent. You can go from being super happy to super angry in about 10 seconds. You are not what I would call laid back or chill. If you are happy, you let us know and likewise if you are not happy. You are very vocal and loud. We love to listen to you 'talk'. We have so many conversations with you 😃 You are very observant. You are also a quick learner. You can roll from front to back and from back to front. You are almost sitting up without support. You love playing with your toys and definitely have your favorites. You have 4 teeth and more will be cutting through soon. You have your front bottom and front top teeth before your 6th month birthday. You LOVE to eat. You have now tried sweet potatoes, squash, carrots, bananas, apples, and pears. Up next you will try peas and then peaches. We bought your high chair the first week in May and you LOVE it! You also still love bath time. This makes Mommy so happy because you HATED baths at first. Baby girl you truly are my sunshine and brighten all my days. Your smile and laugh melt me everytime. You also love giving big slobbery kisses and I adore them! Mary Katherine you bring Mommy and Daddy so much joy. I thank God for you everyday!

You are 16lbs. and 28 in. long

Mommy loves spending her summer with you!

5 months on April 18, 2015

My dear sweet precious beautiful Mary Katherine you will be 5 months old in 6 days. Time is truly flying by. Mommy went back to work on March 2nd and our lives have become a little crazy. Any free time I have I choose to be with you so that means I haven't blogged in a really long time. I want to do a quick update because you have had a big week! Thank goodness it's almost summer!! At your 4 month check up you were 13lbs. and 26in. long!! Here's a wild comparison: Gigi told Mommy that I was 14lbs. at my 12 month check up!! Needless to say you are long and strong like your Daddy! Last week you rolled from back to front and from front to back!! You are also cutting your first two teeth!! Sadly Mommy had to put away all your 3 month clothing last week because you are wearing 6 month clothing now. You are still in size 2 diapers. You mainly need the 6 month clothing because you are so long! You have also had a few nights where you slept 8 hours straight!!! This was wonderful!! Unfortunately teething has upset you many nights. MK we love you so much!! Mommy and Daddy are so proud of you!! You have the sweetest laugh and most beautiful smile! You are truly my greatest blessing from God!!! I am so happy I get to be your Mommy! Happy 5 months!

3 Months Old

My Precious Mary Katherine

Where has the time gone? It is so hard to believe you are already 3 months old.

Actually you were 3 months old on 2/18/15; Mommy is a little behind.

We think you are about 13lbs. but you do not go back to the doctor until the end of March so I am not certain about your height or weight. You are in size 2 diapers. This has been such a great month with you. You are so much happier these days. Your smile melts my heart every time I see it. Mommy was able to get a haircut this month, and she loves it! I go back to work on March 2nd, and I don't even want to think about it. I am going to miss you SO much. Thankfully SUMMER will be here soon. Praying the work days go by quickly. I am just so proud of you my beautiful little girl. You love putting weight on your legs. You love to make all kinds of noises. I think you may end up talking more than Mommy does! You wake up at 6am every day and you are all smiles and ready to play. You are finally beginning to sleep better PRAISE THE LORD! I love watching you learn and grow every day. Mommy and Daddy love you so much sweet girl!

For some strange reason I am not able to upload photos. I will have to try again later.

2 Months Old

My precious Mary Katherine you are now 2 months old. This is quite difficult for me to believe. I feel like you were born just yesterday! These have been the best 2 months of my life. I love you so much and every day with you is truly a gift. We take you to the doctor tomorrow so I don't know your exact measurements. I would guess you are 12lbs and you are very long. You were 21 inches when you were born which is already pretty long. BUT I know that you are even longer now. In your 2nd month you started to lose your hair on top of your head. Now it's starting to grow back. You had a terrible case of baby acne so bad that your worried new mama thought it was a rash and took you to the pediatrician. Your face is finally clearing up and now I can't stop kissing your super soft sweet cheeks. You still love tummy time. In fact you are so strong that you are pushing yourself around your little play mat. We put you down in one spot and you slowly slide to the other side. Your neck and legs are so strong I imagine you will be crawling before long. You are currently napping in your rock n play sleeper. This is amazing because this time last week you were miserable. You weren't eating or sleeping well and I knew something was wrong. I took you to the pediatrician and you were diagnosed with GERD. My poor baby has terrible acid reflux. We put you on medicine and it has finally slowly started working. We have some good days and bad days. Your eating and sleeping is slowly getting better. Your little esophagus is still healing so we are trying to be patient. Mama just wants you better because I hate seeing you in pain. Because of the acid reflux your eating schedule is still not quite established. We have to be flexible and that's ok. We bought you a swing and it helped until the motor stopped working right. Now we have to deal with exchanging it for a swing that works well. During your 2nd month we also had your baby dedication at church. We were a little worried you would cry the whole time, but you did such a great job. You didn't cry at all while we were up front. BUT when we tried to take family pictures after the service you cried non-stop. So needless to say we don't have a bunch of cute pictures, but I will always remember how beautiful you were in your Daddy's arms. Mary Katherine we love you so much and look forward to each new day with you. I truly treasure every moment with you. I had to have an emergency appendectomy last week so tonight your Daddy bathed you for the first time. It was quite an adventure. Your Daddy has been so awesome since I came home from the hospital. I can't lift or carry you and that breaks my heart but I am loving all this sweet precious time you are getting with your Daddy. You smiled at him today and I will forever remember him smiling back at you. The two of you together melts my heart. You two are my whole world. I plan to post an update after your doctor's appointment tomorrow. Mary Katherine Mommy and Daddy love you so much!! You are truly our best adventure yet. Happy 2 months!!!
