Happy Half-Birthday to you!

I love birthdays! Half-Birthday's, real birthdays, doesn't matter, I love 'em! Anyone who knows me well, and now anyone who reads this post, knows my feelings on "the big day". I love having an excuse to celebrate. I love that everyone gets one day where it's all about YOU! Jake always claims that I start counting down to my birthday 6 months in advance...not true...I just always get excited when it's my half-birthday (April 24). Well, unforunately we were out of town and not with Jake on Makenzie's half-birthday, so we didn't have a party, but I think she was excited too!
That's right, she is 6 months old!!! I cannot believe it! I feel like every month I say, "wow, time flies". Well, it does! Luckily, I don't mind her getting older (not the flying by part), because with every day comes new discoveries and new milestones! Her personality is just blossoming and we are in love! She's one happy girl!

SLEEPING- except on vaca :( naps great, and sleeps from 7pm-7am
FOOD- cereal, prunes, carrots, sweet potatoes
TOYS- her rings, rattles, books, anything she can put in her mouth really
BOOKS- she squeals while you read to her as if she is reading along, her favoite book right now- JAMBERRY! I'm a fan as well.

SITTING UP- not a fan of laying down to play anymore, too much to see.

BATHS- well, just being nakey, in general!

her HANDS & her FEET- she loves sucking on her thumb or hand and has recently started putting her feet in her mouth...yikes!

Lots of pictures of a cutesy, blue-eyed, squeeze-her-cheeks, can't-get-enough 6 month old

6 months of goodness
