Sarah - 6 Months!

Sarah, can you believe you're 6 months old now?!
Ughh, Mom, please don't mention my age!
No honey, it's a good thing!  Soon, you will be able to sit up and play, and do all sorts of fun new things!
Really, really, REALLY?!  :)
Yup!  And you will have so much fun with your sister!
Well now I'm so excited, I'm gonna bust a move!

This past month was full of new experiences for you!  Here they are:

You met TONS of your family members and friends for the first time! (Grandpa, uncles, aunts, cousins, great grandparents, great-great grandma, etc..)
You went to the beach for the first time and put your toesies in the ocean!
You watched the chef at the Japanese restaurant make fire and do all kinds of tricks.
You went to White Lake and the arcade.
You tried so many foods that you weren't supposed to yet....I hate to even mention them, haha...pudding, ice cream, even sucked on a rib bone!!
You started eating baby oatmeal (this was OK for you to have).  ;)
You hurt Mommy so bad while you were nursing but you REFUSED to take a bottle....thanks a lot!
You were able to stand and play in the exersaucer without being stuffed in with blankets.
I tried to give you your first 2 toes in, polish got everywhere from your wiggly toes, and we had to stop.
You had your first ride on a merry-go-round!
You had your first 4th of July with lots of friends and fireworks!  You didn't even get scared.
You took another 19 hour trip back to Missouri.  You spent the night at Arnold AFB, and got to see even more new states!  All in all, these are the states you were in to, from, and during this trip: Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, West Virginia, NC, SC, Georgia, & Tennessee.  WOW!

I'm so glad you had such a fun month and got to experience so many new things!  It makes me heart happy to see you and Emily happy.  I love you sweet girl!  I still can't believe you're half a year old!  Don't you dare grow up on me too fast...

Love, Mommy

Sarah - 5 months

Well Sissy, your 5 month blog is EXTREMELY belated!!  In fact, tomorrow you are turning 6 months old and I will be writing that blog, haha!  I am late writing this because we have just returned from a month long vacation to North Carolina to visit all of our family.  : )   We had a great time, but more about that tomorrow.

This month you:

Had your first Memorial Day
Went to the mall for the first time
Said "Da-da"! You are so ahead of the game, baby girl!
Spent the night at Fort Knox
Traveled 16 hours in the car to go see your family in NC...this was not a fun task for any of us.
Got pinkeye TWICE in a poor baby!
Stood up in your exersaucer a lot...but we had to stuff lots of blankets around you, because you're still pretty small.
Loved getting tickled!  You would giggle and smile so hard just like in the picture above.

I love you, sweet baby Sarah!  You have continued to be the sweetest, happiest baby we could've asked for.  Stay tuned tomorrow to read about all of your many adventures this past month!

All my love,
