Here I am...6 months old!

I can roll, but get frustrated at night because I can't get back over. My mom has started swaddling me again and puts the biggest, bulkiest cloth diapers she can find on my bottom to keep me from flipping over. Most babies are done with swaddling by 6 months. I just started up again:)

I love, love, LOVE having anything touch my eyes, whether it be mommy or Grandma kissing my eyelids, mommy running her fingers over my eyes while I lay in my crib, or Daddy tickling my face with my blankie. I instantly relax, let my mouth hang open, and sigh a delightful little sigh.

All I want to do is stand, jump and push off with my feet. I love my Jumperoo and can get pretty wild in there! Mommy and Daddy love to watch and laugh when I bounce with one foot and stomp with the other, like I'm at a hoe-down.

My eyes are still blue, but they are very dark and have a brown ring that sometimes makes the color difficult to decipher.

My hair is growing in thicker every day. Some days it looks blonde, some days it looks dark. Mommy gets excited when we go for a walk and my head gets sweaty because my hair turns wavy! Maybe I'll have curly hair like her!

I still have just 2 teeth, but they are elusive. It's hard for my mom to get a picture of them, but if you get me to smile yourself, I'm happy to show them off!

I really love observing just about anything and everything, whether it be the other babies at school, people at the grocery store, families at church, my doggie Midas, the television, or the scary people at the Washboard Music Festival my parents took me to tonight.

I had my first swimming pool experience a couple weeks ago and could've stayed in the water all day. Since then, I've started enjoying bathtime more too!

I don't know how much I weigh, but I know I'm healthy because people tell my mom all the time. They think they're funny when they ask "Do you ever feed this girl?" or "She hasn't missed any meals has she?" They don't realize that soon I'll be walking and talking and, you know, kids say the darndest things;)

I do not like bananas or sweet potatoes from a jar. Bananas make me pucker and gag. My mom tried them and she said they were pretty bad. Maybe I'll like fresh bananas better.

I love men, but I do not like dark-rimmed glasses. If you look at me with dark-rimmed glasses I will probably stick out my bottom lip, wrinkle my brow and then burst into tears.

My dad taught me how to stick out my tongue, so I do it every chance I get. I also like to blow bubbles! With this discovery came the discovery of my feet. What's great is I can do both at the same time!

I love my life these days. I'm a happy baby and my mom loves hearing people tell her that. I gave my parents a hard time at first, but I wasn't ready to leave my mom's belly! My tummy still had some growing to do and some of my organs weren't working quite right. But now that everything is in working order, life is good!

Lilly, I see your Momma's smile. You are sure growing up and you are such a pretty little girl!

Hello, gorgeous! Happy 6 months, beautiful Lilly!

And Katie, I have the same problem with the baby rolling over and getting stuck there. I haven't tried re-swaddling, but I don't think he would stand for it!

Happy Half Birthday Lilly! I loved this post and I love her little belly! I think I have that purple outfit she's wearing in the first pic of her sticking out her tongue. Too cute! I can't remember if I've asked already, but did you get the #'s onesies from Etsy? I found a girl on there (pickysticky or something like that) who sells them.

Wow, Lilly! You have quit the vocabulary already! Decipher? Elusive? Your mom MUST have been an English major!
