Half Birthday!

Madeleine has survived to 6 months!!!! 
Honestly, we weren't sure she was going to survive this long with us as her parents.
She weights 14 lb 7 oz and is 26.2 inches long.
The Dr said her hair grow is in the 5th percentile. ;)

 She isn't quite crawling yet,but she can certainly get around the room. She pulls herself up onto her hands and knees and she scoots up her knees and dives. She looks like she is doing the worm...a fast worm at that.

Along with that, she is good at sitting. She topples over when she gets distracted but she no longer needs her hands to support herself when she's sitting. As for rolling...she's mastered it.

She is also quite the flirt. Earlier this month when we went to the Logan Art Festival, she smiled at an old man and he asked her to dance! He said that he wanted to dance with the sweetest girl in town, and that as soon as she was walking, he was first in line. She just wins over hearts with that big toothless grin of hers. Even tonight when we were at Denny's, the man next to us started telling us about his 2 year old because Madeleine smiled at him.

She's also becoming an easier and easier baby.
Despite all the traveling we have been putting her through, she still a fairly good sleeper and happy most of the time. 
Matt and I are constantly laughing at her.
Tonight we gave her some whipped cream for her half birthday celebration.
She made the funniest faces before grabbing for more.

Her favorite toys are spoons and baby dino. She loves straws too.
She thinks playing on the floor is the best thing ever and spends hours just wiggling around.

I feel bad that her half birthday was spent by being in her car seat for 18 hours as we drove the first half to Princeton. She was a good sport about it, but after we got to the hotel and decided to drive to Denny's to eat, she cried when she saw the car seat.

Poor Baby.

I'll let you all know how the rest of the move goes later this week, 
but right now we are happy celebrating the life of our Tiny.
Because she's really something.
