Anna {6 Months}

Standard

I can’t believe my sweet girlie is 6 months old! Anna is such a beautiful, happy gift from the Lord to our family! Baby girl lights up when she sees her brothers and daddy; and the boys always run up to give her “hugs and tisses.” They like to sit with her and show her books or toys when she’s having tummy time, or they get their blankies to come cuddle together.

Our Anna Rae weighs 15 lbs, 8 oz and is 25 inches long. She’s petite, but very healthy, and we give thanks to the Lord for that!

She’s learning to sit up, can roll over from front to back, and do some pretty good push-ups. She just got big enough for the jumper, and loves to bounce in it! She also loves peek-a-boo, and often pulls her blankie over her head to start a game.

She has two teeth and is working on a few more. Anna had her first bites of food on her 6-month birthday, and handled that pretty well. I think she was surprised, but didn’t really mind. She’s definitely interested in food and cups and will reach for mine with her whole body. I am so very thankful to the Lord for my sweet Anna Rae!

Anna {4 Months}

Standard

I can’t believe my sweet girl is already 4 months old. She is such a precious gift to our family! She is happy and easy-going. I think if she smiled any more or any bigger, she might explode into happiness glitter or something.

Image

She always smiles the biggest for her daddy and big brothers. They delight in her, and I’m always finding them talking to her or cuddled up next to her. Levi especially like to make sure she has a dolly to hold, even when she’s in her crib asleep. I’m glad that kid can’t turn door handles yet.

She coos to us, laughs a bit, and loves to be wherever we are. She grabs anything she can reach and puts it straight in her mouth. She’s noticing colors and textures and likes to feel different things. Anna is discovering her feet, and I love to watch her trying to grab them. She’s rolled over a few times, but I don’t think she does it on purpose yet. Image

Anna is growing so fast! She now weighs 13 pounds 10.5 ounces and is 24.5 inches long. I’m so thankful to the Lord for my sweet girl, and for the gladness she adds to our family.

Levi {9 Months}

Standard

Someone please tell me how that happened! My sweet baby is getting so big! We had his 9 month check up earlier this week. He’s 20 lbs, 13 oz, and 29 inches long. So the Creator is growing him up really well!

Levi is such a happy, sweet, hilarious baby. The Lord adds such joy and gladness to my day through this smiley baby. He’s crawling and cruising along the furniture. He loves to clap and make singing noises. He has discovered books, and likes to eat look at them or be read to.

He loves stuffed animals, and coos and laughs whenever he sees one. Then he tackles it and chomps on it with his six teeth. Everything goes in his mouth, even the crumbs off my never-quite-clean floor. He eats almost everything offered to him, and he’ll eat things he doesn’t really like, even though he makes a terrible face.


Daddy and Luke are still two of his favorite people, and he’s started saying Ma ma and Da da, which is super sweet. He loves to wrestle and play with the guys, but I still get lots of snuggles, too.

Levi Eats

Standard

 

Levi just started eating solid foods, and he really seems to like it. He makes some hilarious and expressive faces while he’s eating.

“Bite! Bite! Bite!”

“Oooo, I can blow bubbles with this stuff”

“I think I’ll eat this bib instead!”

 

Five Months

Standard

Levi is five months old this weekend! We’re starting to see more and more curiosity from him. He just this week got his two first teeth, on the bottom front, and is drooling like a faucet. He’s learned to roll over, and to push up on his hands. He can sit up, but doesn’t really have the balance thing down yet. His favorite toys are an elephant with lots of rings and rattles on it, the sock monkey Auntie B made for him, and a little blue puppy he takes to bed with him. He has loved being outside with us as the weather has gotten nicer. Levi has discovered the higher ranges of his voice, and squeals a whole lot these days. It’s super cute!He loves being around people, and I think Luke is his favorite person, and one of the joys of mothering these boys is watching them be brothers.

I am so blessed by this smiley, flexible, cuddle buddy! He’s my sunshine baby, and adds so much laughter and joy to our family.
