Our little love: 6 months old!

I can't believe our Livi girl is 6 months old! She is just as sweet as ever and gets cuter everyday. As I type this she's napping on my chest. I have been better about trying at least one nap a day in her crib. But, she's only going to want to cuddle with me for a short time and I'm taking advantage while I can!

Olivia had me eating humble pie after my last update. She had a stretch of middle of the night wake-ups. I'm pretty sure she was going through a growth spurt, and has gone back to sleeping through the night the last couple of nights.

Reid and I have decided that the morning is Olivia's favorite time of day. She is just so smiley and happy when you go get her out of her crib. It's one of my absolute favorite things to do!

A few weeks ago she had her first real babysitter! Her babysitter, Kristina, was also one of the nurses who took care of her in the NICU. I joked but was actually pretty serious that we didn't need to worry because our child's babysitter was more qualified than her own mom and dad. :)

Olivia,
You are such a joy and just the happiest, sweetest girl! We are so thankful God chose us for you. You are the light of our lives and we love you fiercely.
Love,
Your Mommy

Happy 6 months! I've found that just when you think things are settled (like night sleeping), they change again!

It is hard to remember that she was a micro-premie; she looks so rosy, healthy, and plump. And beautiful too. She is obviously thriving on your love!
