We took Brooke to Clix for a 6 month photoshoot.  I took this photo with my phone of the screen while choosing which photos we wanted.  I love how it turned out.  My favorite is the top left where she is playing with her jewelry!! She definitely is my child! :)

Our sick little girl

We sure did have a sick little girl last week!  Tuesday afternoon she got a temp of 102.1 degrees.  Well that evening it went up to 104.1 and we couldn’t get her fever to go down.  We took her to the doctor on Wednesday and they had to take blood and check her urine.  They ended up giving her a shot of antibiotics and said that should help if it’s bacteria.  Her fever finally went down Thursday evening/Friday morning.  She was definitely back to her happy, playful self by Saturday afternoon!! It’s so hard to have a sick little baby.  We are so glad she is feeling better.  We got her a little Minnie Mouse stuffed animal and I really think Minnie helped her feel better!  :)

Happy 6 Months!

Happy 6 months Brooke!

I can't believe our little baby girl is already half a year old.  Where in the heck has the time gone?  We love her so very much.  She lights up our life so much.  Every day is completely different.  It's amazing how much she changes every day.  She is so determined and such a happy baby! However, the past couple of weeks have been challenging.  Brooke started to cut two teeth.  Now we understand when people just laugh at us when we say she is teething.  It has definitely been an experience.  We know she is in so much pain.  Ibuprofen and Hyland Teething Tablets have been lifesavers!!

We go to the doctor on Monday and I'm very excited to see how much our little girl weighs and how tall she is!

6 Month Stats:

-Wears 6 months clothes - however she already wears some 9 month pants and outfits...it won't be long until we need to move up to the next size

-Size 3 diapers

-LOVES to eat dinner...her favorites are sweet potatoes, green beans, and apples. She tried carrots and green beans for the first time this month.  I have an avocado that I want to try sometime this week.

-Can officially sit up like a big girl

-She loves standing and when we pull her up to stand.  She thinks she is such a big girl and just smiles ear to ear.

-Sleeps around 10 1/2 to 11 hours (except when teething) :(

-Loves to jump up and down in her jumperoo

-She is starting to 'scoot' backwards and she can put all her weight on her hands and knees and rock back and forth....I bet she'll be crawling in no time!

-She loves Bailey so much and it definitely is a mutual love...he always has to be with/around her.

-She likes to take walks around the neighborhood and to Starbucks....haha well maybe that's me that loves that! :)

-She went to her first Virginia Tech Hokies Football Game on September 22nd. She had so much fun!

-She went to her first Pumpkin Farm last weekend and had a blast....she absolutely loved all the bright orange pumpkins!

I love this one...she is so proud standing up by herself!
