a whole half of a year!

Its hard to believe Grace is 6 months old already, at the same time it seems like 'it's only been 6 months'?! Grace has been having fun experimenting/feasting on new flavors in life, her favorites are peaches and sweet potatoes (hence the slightly orange-ish tone on her nose and cheeks according to her pediatrician :) ). She's sitting up on her own except when she forgets to balance and then topples over. We won't be shocked if she starts crawling in the next month or so. She can scoot to get to toys just out of reach and has ventured up on her knees and elbows even, though a bit wobbly. Time to start child-proofing!
Grace loves bath time! She rolls around and splashes like a fish. We'll have to take her to the gym to swim and see how she likes it.
Some of you up north may be feeling hateful but its been in the 70-80's these last few weeks, almost up to 90 the last couple of days. I could do without the 87-89 degree temps and its a little scary just because apparently summer starts early down here and I'm not quite ready for the sweltering heat just yet. The redbuds are already in bloom and we're starting to see leaves come out on some of the trees. Who knew?! At least I won't be huge and pregnant for this coming Texas summer! :)

more cuteness

Grace is almost able to sit up steadily on her own. Big brother Baxter standing by for support.

Yummy toes...

Kangaroo pouchin' it with Dad. Dan let his head be shaved by one of his 10-year old swimmers going in to championship season. I put the finishing touches on for him to smooth it out :)

Scooter-butt. That's how Grace gets around these days and apparently its a comfortable sleeping position, too

big girl

It just hit Dan and I the other day as we were looking at these pictures and saw an old one on the camera of Grace from 8 weeks old just how much she's grown and changed already in her short 5 1/2 months of life. She's lovin' the 'real' food and can sit in her stroller the 'big girl' way. Thumbing through magazines, what next?

And then we catch her in a moment like this and she's such a little girl...
