6 Month Update
Oh my goodness, how can I have a 6 month old already? I LOVE my little goober!!! She makes us giggle each and every day. This month she has really worked on and mastered the art of sitting up and falling over, LOL. It took her about a week to learn how to steady herself and now all she wants to do is sit up and wobble. My favorite part is when I let her sit on our bed and she slowly looks up at me with the biggest grin in the whole wide world. She's so proud of herself and her smile definitely melts my heart. She also loves to roll and I mean roll all over the place. She rolls until she gets stuck under some furniture and we turn her around and off she goes again. In the last week, she has been working on pulling her knees up under her, but then she just ends up scooting on her belly like an inch worm. It won't be long before she crawling and then I really won't be able to catch her. If you look closely at the bottom picture, you can see her two little teeth. They make her grin that much cuter!!!
We definitely have a tall girl on our hands. She's in 6 month tops, but 9 month pants!!!! Let me tell you - she didn't get that height from me :) Since she's so tall and sitting up, we had to move her to a new bathtub already. We got her this little inflatable duck tub and it's quiet entertaining to watch her in it. The moment she spots it filled with water she starts kicking her legs. She LOVES splashing and licking the water droplets off of her face. We definitely have a little ham on our hands and she truly makes us laugh each and every day!
Just a quick update on us. I went in for a Cat-Scan last Friday and I'm happy to report that I'm kidney stone free. WooHoo! Huge relief. I was a tad nervous waiting for the results. Now Ross is the one dealing with some medical stuff. Monday morning (24th) we're waking up very very early and heading to the hospital. Ross has had a lot of problems with his ears and started noticing some hearing loss recently. We ended up going in to see a specialist a few weeks ago and found out that he has a perforated ear drum along with a condition called Cholesteatoma. So he is undergoing surgery this morning to repair everything. Fingers crossed that all goes well and that he has a quick recovery!!! I'm sure Charlotte will do her best to keep him smiling this week!!! Thanks so much for checking in on us this month. Enjoy your day.
