6 months old

Today Annabelle turns 6 months old!  It's hard to believe 1/2 a year has gone by already.  It's been such a wonderful time, everyday we have been grateful to have this little joy in our lives. 

This past week we had our usual yoga on Monday and PT Tuesday then Wednesday we had a follow up eye exam for Annabelle.  The doctor said her eyes look great and she has no need for glasses at this time which was great news.  We also ventured out Wednesday on our own to the pool at the YMCA.  I forgot a bunch of things on the bed (blaming it on mom brain, it's been really bad this week) but we had our swimsuits and one towel so it wasn't a complete loss.  Annabelle did great in the water, she has learned how to kick and loves "swimming" on her tummy & back.  We also did frog jumps from the side of the pool which she loved.  I'm looking forward to keeping this up at least a couple times a week. 

Thursday we had a play date for the afternoon which was lots of fun for babies and mommies!  Friday it looked like rain so we decided to meet a friend at the mall and do a few laps to get some exercise and visit. 

Solids are going well, she loved the avocado but wasn't a huge fan of the green beans.  Thinking of trying apples or peaches next, going back and forth from fruits to veggies.  She's really enjoying the eating and gets excited now when I put her in the high chair.  The other night I even got adventurous and fed her while we were eating.  It actually worked out better than I thought it would.

I found a really cute Fisher Price step & play piano like new on Craigs List and picked it up Friday.  Annabelle absolutely loves it!  She kicks her feet and gets so excited when the music plays.  We are starting to run out of room for all of these baby toys so this ended up in the guest room for now. 

I took a ton of pictures this week.  We had a little photo shoot to make a special collage for Brian for Father's Day (which I included in the pictures).  I printed it out and put it in a frame for him to take to work.  We also made a coffee mug with a bunch of pictures of Annabelle on it from Shutterfly and a worlds greatest dad shirt.  Looking forward to giving it to him tomorrow.  Hope all the fathers out there have a great Fathers day including my own wonderful dad, father-in-law and of course my favorite new dad, Brian :-)

I just love looking at all your wonderful photos, Annabelle. You are one special little gal! Give big kisses to you Dad and Mom for me, and hopefully I will meet you before your wedding! We hope to see your Grandmom and Grandad Kresge this weekend while we are in Maryland for a few short days.
