Six Months of Hadley


My pumpkin pie, minnie babes, sweet baby ray, Hads, baby squirms, girly girl -- you are SIX months old as of Christmas day, December 25th! Not such a bad way to spend your half birthday: presents and food and family, right?!

Stats: 14 pounds 6 ounces (15%), 27.5 inches (94%), size two diapers, mostly 6 month clothes.

We had quite the month of all things holiday fun. We kicked off your six month of life with Thanksgiving weekend, got back together with your newborn photographer for Christmas card pictures, cheered on WMU in the MAC championship, celebrated Christmas with dads side of the family on your first Detroit trip, played in the snow (so much snow this month), did some Christmas shopping up in Grand Rapids, met SANTA!, and most importantly of all, got baptized surrounded by all of our friends and family. What a month.

You also broke two little bottom teeth through! You were such a happy thing through it all- the only way we knew your teeth were coming through was because your little cheeks were red and blistered. You are seriously THE happiest baby I have ever seen and everywhere we go, people comment on it. You're always smiling (I love how you smile with your entire face) and screeching and while you're still stingy with your laughs, it's the best sound in the world. No one makes you laugh like dad! I think we've watched this video of the two of you liiiiike eight hundred times. It's the sweetest!

We are loving watching you grow and become more independent and discover the world, but I won't lie- it's bittersweet for me. Every day, you are becoming more of a little girl and less of that tiny newborn that changed our lives on a warm June evening. It breaks my heart a little, but in the best way. Seeing how much you love life makes me so happy and you bring SO much joy to our home. Even Brady is starting to become obsessed with you (in the form of licks all over the face)! This first six months have been the best of my entire life and I know it's just the beginning. 

We love you, sweet baby!
