Catch up

Guess who got teeth yesterday?
So, the Navy Bean sprouted two teeth yesterday. She had been teething for about a week and doing pretty well. Wes left today for 10 days. Today, the Navy Bean has been waaaaaay fussier than she was before the teeth came through. I hope that ends quickly, otherwise one of us might be dead before daddy gets home!
Everything has gone through for the house and they will start building this week, if it stops raining. We went and picked out colors Sat. and then my head exploded. It took FOREVER and we liked most of the stuff in the model. But, this means by Oct/Nov. we should have plenty of room for company from all over the world!
Now, I just have to clean the house and start packing. I figure I will kill two birds with one stone by baby-proofing/packing at the same time!

6 months

My little Navy Bean is 6 months old. And she's not so little any more. At the moment she is not eating because she is getting teeth!!! But, when she does eat, it is a beautiful sight to behold.

Don't you just want to kiss those little rolls of fat?

She's learning so much new stuff it's hard to keep track of. She can't actually pull herself to standing yet, but she's working on it. She so wants to be a big girl. I am amazed at how smart she is. She knows the words "kiss" and "milk" and will respond accordingly. Her kisses are wet and sloppy, but they are the best kisses I have ever received.

Her smile lights up my day, no matter how little sleep we have gotten. My life has been so enriched by her, I could never imagine being without her.

I love her little goofy faces. I love it when she gives me a hug and a kiss without me asking. I love holding her in my arms. I love reading to her. I love taking walks with her. I love her.

She loves music. She loves the sound of the piano and was thrilled when she could make noise on it too. She loves classical music. She loves the drums. I hope she continues in this love.

Did I mention that she cracks me up?
It's been a wonderful 6 months. I love my Navy Bean more than I thought possible. I can't wait to see what the next 6 months bring (besides crawling, walking and more teeth).

Note to Wes

When one of the ushers at church tells you your wife looks great and can you believe she just had a baby, the correct response is NOT, "it's been 6 months."


The builder accepted our offer as it was. We have an appointment with the loan officer this week. We should know something by Wednesday and hopefully, start "building" by Friday.
