Halfway

She’s halfway there…halfway crawling, halfway sitting, halfway singing and halfway to a year! I can’t believe she is already 6 months old, it’s happened in a blink. Yet on the other hand I can’t remember life without her. Some friends of ours came over with their baby Kaleb, whom will be a month old this week, I can’t believe how big Kaelen is in comparison! She still seems so itty bitty to me, and at the same time I totally miss when she was that little… with little cries, little smiles and dammit little poops! J Where did the days go when she slept 20 hours and I got to recoup…

Kaelen is such a happy, talkative baby! She has mastered Dadadadadaaaaaa, which as you can imagine makes Kyle ecstatic! My only thoughts on that…she doesn’t know what she is saying or that this is what she will be calling Kyle for the rest of her life so I still have a chance at Momma being her first word…well maybe not, I think technically Daddaaaaaaa takes the ‘first word’ award. Darn!!!

This weekend Kyle went riding…I know you are probably reading this thinking, shit this kid always leaves for the weekend. Well, it does happen quite often but the poor guy is in doors all day everyday during the week taking care of his baby girl so he needs a little icky, dirty, boy time. Not to mention the weekends are all about Kaelen and I! Working all week long leaves little time for Mommy and Me moments so I look forward to the weekends…to doing nothing but feeding, changing, drooling and laughing with my babe. Any who, Kaelen and I went to see Mel and her family on Saturday while Daddy was away, we had some good old fashioned girl time at the mall where I got to spoil my Punkin a little. I bought her this amazing headband …She’s so dang hip!

Happy 6 months baby girl! Slow down, I’m not ready for you to be big!!!

Thanks Auntie Mel and Nanna for the awesome pictures!

My lil Punkin!

Ok, so our super cute idea of dressing Kaelen up as a Bunny didn't work out cause Mommy and Daddy waited till the last minute and couldn't find her costume. So Sad. But we got her the Pea in the Pod costume...so stink'n cute! She wasn't so much liking it though (note to costume buyers...0-9 months in the costume world means SMALL) her poor little legs didn't have room to move and if you've spent even 5 minutes with our baby girl you would know she loves to kick and jump. We didn't take her trick or treating this year, as cute as it would have been she would have never known the difference and we were busy trying to get the house set up. We had a costume party at our house, it was the first time I didn't spend the night with my daughter which you will find out shortly kinda put a damper on the whole "yay no baby, lets do adult things."
This is what happens when there's one too many drinks and no baby...We had my company party on the 24th so I am all partied out for a while.

Kyle and I did have a blast and I knew that Kaelen was in great hands but still, there is noting like coming home to your baby!

She is so close to crawling it's scarey! Although Poppa says she just jumps on her face. I think it's just around the corner and then we're in serious trouble. She almost has the sitting up thing down too, I swear I am going to cry...my baby's getting big and there is nothing I can do about it!

Having a baby can make you boring in no time...I would much rather sit on my bed with Kaelen and Kyle and make funny noises
