6 months!

I cannot believe half of a year has gone by already. But with this milestone also comes the end of my maternity leave. Next week I will going back to school. While I feel incredibly lucky to have had so much time home with our baby, I'm pretty sad. Gwen and I have created our own little world each day and I have been able to see each "new" thing as it comes. But this is what our family needs to do and I am going to try to make the best of it.

Now onto the happy stuff. A list of Gwen's new tricks!

  • She now has the ability to roll from one end of the room to the other in a matter of seconds. Unless she is being watched constantly she often gets herself stuck under one of the couches in the living room.

  • She can sit up unassisted for about a minute or two before having a full faceplant (see video in previous post).

  • She is eating solid foods! So far she is a big fan of everything we've given her. Avocado, bananas, sweet potatoes, carrots, applesauce, pears, squash, cereal, and yogurt have all passed the test so far.

  • She babbles away like crazy. So far we've heard "da' and "ga" and the occasional "ma" when she's crying (go figure).

  • She can stand while holding on to our fingers for an indefinite amount of time.

I know we've said this before, but it amazes us how this little person has made our lives better. We laugh more and smile more and are just completely in love with this life that we have created. Happy 6 months Gwenny Bear!
