She is rolling, scooting, rocking on her knees, chewing on everything in sight, and playing with her feet a lot. She is starting to have a little stranger anxiety, but most of the time she passes out the smiles to everyone who looks at her, especially her brothers. She never sits still anymore and is so delighted in exploring the world around her and trying to figure out what is going on. She has become anti-car rides since school started back up and fusses almost every day when we go to pick the boys up, until the moment Colin gets in the car and talks to her. Then she is just fine and happy. She also has a favorite song, Mindy Glendhill’s Anchor, which calms her down almost every time I play it in the car. As soon as it is over she starts to fuss again until I restart it. Luckily it is a favorite of her brothers too, so no one really minds. Sometimes I hear her making happy noises in the car and I ask Colin if she is talking to him, and he says that she is just looking at Gabe in the back and trying to get his attention. At night, she has started to flip towards Chad when she is ready to sleep, so she can get a little daddy time, and if she is awake at all, she will flip over and bat at him to play, and then flip back really quickly and laugh, teasing him. We love our girl and I can’t believe it is has been six months!
(Oh, and her eyes are still blue! Who would have guessed it?!)
I am hoping to make this Carina week – maybe I will finally get around to telling you where she got her name and maybe, just maybe, her birth story (finally).
