Six Months!

On the 14th, Brynn was six months old! Crazy crazy. At her appointment, she weighed 16 lbs 5 oz and was 26 inches long. She's just about perfectly on the 50th percentile curve...except for her head measurement. Her head is 7th percentile. Obviously it's not a big deal, BUT SOMETIMES IT MAKES ME THINK ABOUT THE ZIKA VIRUS.

Brynn doesn't have any teeth yet, but she likes to eat cereal, bananas, applesauce, avocado, and sweet potatoes. When she's playing on the floor, she can move herself side to side in a big circle, but she hasn't really figured out how to crawl forward yet. We think she might be getting kind of close though! She sleeps 12 hours every night. Yeah. I know I'm lucky. She's curious and can sit and entertain herself for a while when Mom does homework. If she gets lonely, she's pretty happy to sit next to me on the couch while I work. Her favorite toys are Sophie the Giraffe (thanks Lizzy!), the Very Hungry Caterpillar (thanks Sharline!), Daddy's face, and Mommy's hair.

Happy six months Brynn Girl! You make us so happy.

This is a comparison to one of Brynn's newborn sleepers. I can't believe she was ever that teeny tiny!

One day when I was getting some reading done, we snuggled up on the bed, and she fell right asleep. 

Last week we drove to Indiana to spend some time with Greg's brother Kellen and his family. It was so fun! Here's Patrick with Baby Brynn at Reed's basketball game. Pat was such a natural with her! I guess that comes from having 5 younger siblings! (Cameo by Jane) 

First ponytail at Kellen and Calise's house. Oh my gosh. So cute. 

Brynn LOVED playing with her older cousins Ellie and Claire when everyone else was gone at school. She couldn't stop laughing at their silly games! 

Rockin' the sunglasses. We'll have to get a pair when we move back to Florida. 

Grabbing on to Daddy's hand. She would not let go and it was the most adorable thing ever. 

Brynn was playing on the couch while I did homework. Grabbing on to a toy, one sock off and stuck under neath of her...she fell asleep. Sometimes I feel like I'm neglecting her when I do homework, but she can usually take care of herself pretty well. Look

Brynn's new favorite activity is grabbing the edge pieces off her mat so she can suck on them. It makes her really happy and she does it all the time, as you can see: 


  1. So cute! I always thought she looked just like you, but in some of these pictures I am seeing Greg too! It's so fun to watch her grow up from afar.
