Half Birthday!

On February 1, 2015, my baby girl had her half birthday! We were in Augusta, celebrating her God Mother, Jennifer's, birthday, so you know she got some half birthday loving :) Not only is this month a huge milestone time-wise, but she has also learned and accomplished so many things over the past month! I feel like my baby is starting to become a little girl in some ways.

Her personality is more apparent than ever before! She is so sweet and gentle. People are always commenting on what a wonderful baby she is (for which I give God, and not myself or Mikey, all the credit!)...she just hangs out with us most of the time, and she is always smiling or calmly observing and learning from the world around her. Basically, she's the best.

She has started sitting up on her own, and with that comes a whole new world of possibilities! She can reach for things better, so she can play for longer periods of time, entertaining herself. It is so fun to watch her learn and play with her toys. She loves her soft blocks from Gramma and Grampa and her play kitchen from Gammy and Poppa! Before, I know it, she'll be crawling...aah! She is already starting to scoot around a little bit.

She started eating solid foods! She caught onto eating from a spoon so quickly. I am so incredibly proud of her and excited for all of the new options she can try! Right now, we are just doing solids at dinner time, but we will probably start adding them to more feedings during the day and working towards a three-meal-a-day schedule.
