Kinley 7 Months

Not to be outdone....Emily needed her picture taken too....

Hard to believe my baby girl is already seven months old! She's been working on a crawl for a couple weeks now. She gets on all fours and rocks back and forth. She has crawled a couple of "knee steps" for a few days so I know we are super close to crawling. She rolls to anything and everything. She loves to explore. I'm assuming that I will lose 15 pounds. ha! She's all smiles and giggles though, she loves everything!

She has two bottom teeth and she's currently working on her upper teeth---which I think means that there is a long night ahead of us. I wish I could say that she is sleeping perfectly through the night, but that is not even close to the truth. She is up 2-3 times a night and every once in a while every two hours. Brian usually tries to rock her back to sleep, but she wants me and won't stop crying until she has me. Ugh. I joke because I prayed that Kinley would be a little more snuggly than Emily, but I forgot to pray that she would sleep! I keep telling myself that this is only for a matter of time.

Tonight was my night to rock her to sleep. I had some lullabies playing and I found myself choked up as I listened to the tune:
Goodnight, my angel
Now it's time to dream
And dream how wonderful your life will be
Someday your child may cry
And if you sing this lullaby
Then in your heart
There will always be a part of me

Probably not the most flattering picture, but I had so much fun on this slide.
Love her!
I'm sure they'll hate me for posting this picture, but they look like a cruise ad

Kinley loved the pool and Grandma/Grandpa loved Kinley!

Kinley 6 Months

This post is a bit late, but my baby girl is indeed 6 months old! I took her to the doctor for her check up and she was 15.5 pounds. He's very pleased with her overall growth pattern. She was cooing, smiling and giggling at him....well, until the shots :(

She still is not a huge fan of sleep. I'm talking about 30-45 minute naps and still waking 2-3 times at night. I'm exhausted (which probably helps explain the lack of blogposts, she just doesn't give me any time to update).

She's cut two teeth and they are growing more every day. I'm thinking she's already working on some more because she's drooling like crazy.

How can you not love this little girl? She's so sweet. She smiles SO often, too bad neither one of these shots show her sweet grin.
