6 Months Of Love!!

Emelia Michelle, you are 6 months old now! Oh how I am loving this age with you! We met up with Meg from Shone Foto to make sure we captured all of the memories of our little family at this age! I love that in some of the pictures we can see your 2 little teeth, so fun to be able to remember exactly what you looked like at this age.

Our Year Of 3 Year Old Preschool

If there is one thing I know I did right with Eliza, it is the fact that I put her in Preschool last year. Though she was only 2.5 when she started, I knew she needed it. She needed a place to have her own identity, a place to be with other kids, a place to have structure and direction from someone other than me.

Being 7 months pregnant, moving to a new house, I needed this too. I needed a break a few hours a week for her to be out of the house. I needed to prepare for Emelia, get boxes packed and at the time, deal with Zander being sick.

Preschool was the best choice for us, and I can't believe how much this little pumpkin grew in her very first year.

and just because this outtake still cracks me up...

Emelia-5 Months Old

Emelia Michelle,

Even though I am still writing all of these at 6 months old(see 3 month old for my apologies) I actually do remember last month!!

You are becoming SO SO happy. The baby I have dreamed of is here! You still won't sleep, I swear you think it will kill you! You are a rolling machine, you get across the room in a second, you love to get your head stuck under the tv though. Sissy thinks it is so funny that you can move around the room.

You are sitting up more and more. You can do about 10-15 seconds without falling over.

You are in 3-6 month clothing but still fit in a lot of 3 month stuff. You have the chubbiest cheeks and everyone just loves them!

You wear size 1 and 2 diapers, we could really use size 1.5!!

You have a babysitter named Grace that comes over to help me out. You LOVE her, you don't cry at all, Sissy loves her even more!

Keep growing my bug...maybe if you get bigger you will decide to start sleeping :)

Love you lady bug!

Here are your 5 month photos from Shone Foto, you are getting so big!

Tattooed Babies

Our favorite photographer, Meg, from Shone Foto offered a photo shoot to benefit a local charity. The theme was "tattoos" as she partnered with a local tattoo shop for this charity event. All of the money went to The Torch, a local food truck that delivers FREE food to those in need. 

You know I couldn't pass up an opportunity to have adorable pictures of the girls plus help out a great charity! I volunteered my time to help Meg out with all of the shoots, it was adorable seeing all of the kiddos! I had only planned to have Eliza take part but when I saw a baby doing it, I knew Emelia had to join in. 

I just love these photos, so different from what we usually do and such genuine smiles from Eliza. Meg can always get those out of her!

Emelia-4 Months Old

Emelia Michelle,

You are now 4 months old...and well, refer back to the writing of 3 months to be caught up...I am a bit behind.

But you became a much happier baby at 4 months, still didn't sleep through the night but your happy smiles and giggles through the day made up for it all!

Love you lady bug!!

Here are your 4 month photos from Shone Foto! Look how much you are smiling!!

Emelia-3 Months Old

Emelia Michelle,

3 months old...ok I'm going to be honest, I am posting this after we just got home from your 6 month pictures. Yeah, I am a bit behind. I don't really remember what you were doing at 3 months old now, but I am sure you were a handful!!

Back then you had your reflux, I am thinking around this time we switched your medication which definitely helped. You slept through the night a few times at this point, you still don't do it very often so don't get too excited. 

You were probably chubby back then, just like now, you are an eater!! Newborn to 3 month clothes, size 1 diapers and lots of hours of snuggles.

You rolled over for the first time around 3 months old, we got it on video...somewhere. Welcome to the life of a second child.

But guess what, whether I wrote this when you were 3 months old, or today, my love for your is as strong as ever and THAT is what matters!!

Here are your 3 month photos from the fabulous Shone Foto. 

Love you lady bug!!
