(J’s first time riding in the front seat with me.)

I love one-on-on time with the kids and it’s hardest to come by with the firstborn.  The other day I got to take him to practice (with Willa in tow) and I let him ride in the front seat and we went to the store together on the way home.  When we got back into the car after the store he even said, “that was so fun”.  As in grocery shopping!  But I completely agree.

Jackson had a teacher workday today and it was BEAUTIFUL outside.  I think NCMA might be my favorite place in Raleigh.

Six months with Willa


You are SIX months old (on Mardi Gras!) Willa girl!

A whole half of a year!

Unfortunately, month 6 didn’t bring improvement in sleep.  And there was some illness as well.  You had croup for the first time which was a bummer.  We had to take you to the doctor for that.  You had your first (actually maybe 2nd) fever a couple of weeks later.  You met your friend Ella!

You like watching porkchop.  You think it’s funny to watch people on the stairs while I’m carrying you.  We love your funny faces.  You like to be held.  A lot.  You are making different sounds which is fun.

You chew on stuff like crazy.

You love the swing in the backyard, you’re content in it for a long time and you smile the most when Jackson pushes you.  You’re getting more ok with baby food.  I think you’ll just be ready for regular food early.

You’re still not rolling over a lot but you can.  You’re wiggly in your bed and you like to practice sitting up the most.  We love having you in the high chair at the table with us at meals.

. You have eczema and its a bummer. boo.

We celebrated your first valentine’s day!

We love you Willa!

It seriously blows my mind that your first year is halfway over.  Can’t wait to see more of your personality sweet girl.
