That's right my friends, my littlest babe is now six months old and I don't like it. I don't like it one bit. I mean yes we are getting to the good stuff of her moving around, laughing uncontrollably, and sleeping. But...six freaking months! Uhhh....
Let's talk about this little love of mine. She is the happiest baby ever. I can say that because I have three others to compare her to. And I mean, like overly happy. Always wakes up with a huge smile on her face. There are days that she does not even think about crying! Riddle me that!! Chris and I sit and stare are her like...are you sure you're part of this family? Have you not met your brothers and sister? They act like they were raised in a zoo. But here she is. She loves to just sit contently and play with a couple dinosaurs. Sitting. Independently. All the time.
Also, crawling like it's her job. Baby gates have been put back up, light sockets have been triple checked, and locks have been put on drawers. She is quiet with her approach, but she is quite curious. We are still in the teething trenches, but if you ask her she would tell you she handles it pretty well. Unlike her oldest brother who made me rethink my entire existence as he would just scream all day long. Odette? She is just happy as a clam chewing on whatever she can get her swollen gums on. Which brings us to food! She has a very healthy appetite for whatever I am eating. But I have to tell her to slow her roll and just eat what she is given. Mainly, avocado, sweet potatoes, and banana so far.
She has gotten more accustomed to her car seat (praise the Lord) but when she wants out, she wants out. She loves diaper changes and thinks the fanning of the diaper after a good wipe is the funniest thing ever. She could live in a nice warm bath if we let her, and loves a little bit of naked time afterwards. Don't we all....
She really is so easy going. I don't know whether that is really her personality or the fact that the older kids are constantly fighting, screaming, or throwing things across a room, that it makes it seem like she is an angel. Or if she really is just a cool cat. I'd like to think that is the case.....but I thought the same with Pierce and he is now my wildcard child.
In any event we just can't stop loving on her. In the words of Chris "I mean do you think she is sick of us all kissing her? I just can't help it, I can't hold her and not kiss those cheeks!". It's true. Non-stop germ spreading around this house.
That's it. I love you my little Odie!
