Happy 6 months Rowe! This 1/2 a year has flown by like no other! You have enjoyed a lot of special firsts this month. You spent your first night away from home, in Nashville, at the end of January. Aunt Mandy, Maeleigh, and our family went to the circus there. We went up on Saturday, shopped a little, and then went to the circus on Sunday. You seemed to enjoy it all. You slept through most of the circus. I think all of the sights and sounds might have been a little overwhelming, so you just escaped into your peaceful place. Otherwise, you were eager to take it all in. You stayed in the church nursery for the first time. You have cried some and enjoyed it some, but overall it has been an easier transition than I expected. We had two big (to us) snowfalls. We took you out for pictures and to watch Brennan play a little. You celebrated your first Valentine's Day by going to Brennan's school party, taking Papa to lunch, and having Papa, Nonna, and Maeleigh over for supper. Maeleigh spent the night with us, and you loved her playing with you. On the 16th you helped me celebrate my birthday with lunch and dinner out. On your big day we went to Nonna and Papa's.
You are enjoying starting solid foods. So far you've tried pears, carrots, and apples. You have liked them all! You have also become happier and more satisfied during the day since starting them. We ran errands one day this week, and you did not cry once. It was a fun morning together. You are so ready to be on the move. You constantly arch your back and try to wiggle away. You also arch your back, shake your head back and forth, kick your legs, and scream, when you don't like what's happening. The head part is to try to avoid having your paci put in and possibly becoming calm. You are MAD and want the world to know at those moments. Luckily, that doesn't happen too often. It's mostly when I'm trying to get you back to sleep. You have decided you really like the Jumperoo, especially if you have an audience. You really like constant attention the best. You sat for a few minutes by yourself for the first time today (6 months 4 days), and have scooted yourself a little this week trying to get to Brennan's toy. You had your 6 month immunizations yesterday and they barely phased you. It is so much fun to watch you grow and change Rowe! You have been my sunshine on these winter days!
