My sweet little lady, I can't believe you have been with us for two thirds of a year now. And you definitely aren't so little any more; this month brought in the start of your sixth leap and there's really been some big changes around here. You've noticeably grown, to me at least. I could still squeeze you into a few 3-6 month clothes until recently, now you're well into your 6-9 month things.
You've developed so much this past month, too. You've gone from just being able to sit, to scooting across the room on your belly, to crawling, as well as being able to crawl from sitting up, and this last week you've been pulling yourself up on things. Quite frankly, you're running Mama a little ragged, I wish you'd slow down a bit! You don't seem happy unless you're scooting around all over the place, exploring is just your favourite.
We have done a bit of exploring this month, too. We took a little trip up to Lancaster, to Williamson Park and the butterfly house; you loved all the little creatures, and you really love just being outside around nature, your little face still lights up like nothing I've ever seen when we're walking under trees. We also took a little trip to the zoo, you seemed to enjoy the chickens and penguins the best! We went shopping to Chester too, we pushed you round all day whilst Grandma and I looked around the shops and you were quite content to just be, you really are a happy little baby.
You still get remarked on everywhere we go, I feel like the luckiest Mama alive when people stop to comment on you and you give them a big smile. You have such a big personality, I can tell you might be a bit of a handful as you get older! You delighted Daddy this month by saying "Dada", and now you won't stop babbling away repeating it, but still no signs of "Mama". This really is my favourite age so far, I just love to see you growing and exploring, becoming more independent and curious. You are a wonderful little baby, Mama loves you so much!
