6 months!

Gwendolyn is 6 months old. I can hardly believe it. I mostly can hardly believe she's still sleeping in a cardboard bassinet next to my bed. I bet she could point her toes and reach her arms up to touch the top and the bottom at the same time. Also, she has rolled over from her back to her tummy twice so we'll be moving her to the pack n' play until the bunk bed is here (it is finished and just waiting to be shipped maybe sometime at the end of this week... so I hear) She can sit indefinitely, but doesn't know how to purposefully get out of it and will pout and make the saddest faces and sounds when she's tired of sitting.

She's eating solids like a champ and the days that we forget, she'll retaliate with waking up more often at night. She's eaten rice and oatmeal cereal and green beans so far.

She is such a sweet and patient little sister, smiling at all of the antics her older brothers do to make her laugh or smile. She is mild tempered and usually only cries if she's tired, hurt or hungry (at the most, every 3 hours all day and night). Both boys love to entertain her and bring her toys to play with. Alec loves to feed her (and himself) baby food or sippy cups of water.

too cute watching Alec feeding Gwen!! We don't know what is funnier, Gwen trying to get enough off the spoon before Alec moves it away, or Alec thoroughly delighting in each spoonful that he took :) What a great example of a devoted big brother. Dad & I laughed our heads off!!
