Dear Lydia: 6 Months


dear lydia

Dear Lydia,

You’ve been with us for 6 months already and boy, does time fly when you’re not sleeping and having fun! You continue to be a very happy baby, often swinging your legs when we hold you to show pleasure or tapping your foot if you’re lying down. You are a mermaid baby who loves being in the water and kicking your legs, whether in the pool or bathtub. You light up a room with your infectious, cheeky grin and you have tons of energy.

You don't mind playing dress up.

Here you two are plotting your escape from the crib…I fear Finn is a bit too eager to help you. lol

One of your favorite toys is the chain of plastic letters. We often call you Two Chainz for fun.

You don't mind if I dress you in vintage dresses just for kicks.

You've been practicing crawling, but it's been more of a scoot until yesterday (Aug. 4th) when you actually crawled forward.

Sometimes you get distracted when trying to call and have to stop to fuss at the carpet.

You've tried lots of yummy food lately including sweet potatoes, bananas, apples, peas, green beans, and your favorite, avocado.

You sit up very well without help and I'll often find you sitting up in your crib after naps just looking around.

You are a bundle of sunshine all covered in sweet sugar rolls and we love your bright personality.

We can’t wait to see how you and Finn continue to grow and play together. We love you very much!
