Sweet (Six-Month Old) Hannah

Six Months.  Our baby Hannah is slowly becoming less of a baby and more of a little person.  She smiles and giggles.  She has spiky hair and a gummy smile, which I'm sorry to say has numbered days.  Hannah's first tooth popped through on Friday.  If you look really carefully (you might have to click on the picture to enlarge it!) you can see it sneaking in.

She picks up toys, shakes them, puts them in her mouth and then drops them a few seconds later.  She wobbles when she sits and rolls her way across the floor to reach a rattle.  She watches every move that Lilly and Jack make, and smiles a smile that lights up the room when either of them sits and talks to her.  She loves peek-a-boo and pears and avocado and butternut squash and sweet potato. She enjoys eating her toes and her fingers; actually, she enjoys eating anyone's fingers.  She loves sucking her thumb, just like her big brother.  She adores her jump-a-roo.  Hannah will try and watch anything on television, which a characteristic we see in Lilly; commercials, football, you name it.  If you try and distract Hannah (or Lilly) when the television is on, she turns her head away so that she can get a better view.  She giggles and squeaks when you talk to her and kicks her legs when she laughs.

Whenever people ask me how Hannah is as a baby, all I can say is that she really is a dream come true. She's such a little ray of sunshine and it's hard to believe that she's only been in our lives for six months. It's amazing to think that Jack and Lilly will (most likely) not remember their lives before Hannah was born.  We could not have asked for a better little addition to our family!

Definitely framed.  There's no way Hannah made this mess by herself.

Not so sure about that first taste of rice cereal!

Hannah has a pretty good sad face too.
But mostly, this is how we see her.
These cheeks should definitely be packing away acorns for the winter!
