6 Months!

Miss Hannah Banana has been with us for 1/2 a year! Everyday she captures our hearts a little bit more! This month has been a big month for her. She's such a little person now! Each day is something new in this adventure.

No teeth yet, but she's drooling more and like normal, EVERYTHING goes into her mouth! Mostly her feet these days. She started sucking on her lower lip.

She's such a happy girl! In the past few weeks she's become such a daddy's girl. She watches his every move and flashes her big smiles anytime he looks at her. I love seeing the two of them cuddle in the mornings while I take a shower. They have their own special games and songs they play with each other.

She continues to eat very well. We started giving her slices of bananas, apples and peaches in her mesh feeder. But don't take it away before she's finished! She also started getting formula while she's at Grandma Bodell's during the week.
She's becoming much more vocal. She repeats syllables... mamama, dadadada, babababa. We're glad the shrill screaming phase is over!
Hannah had a lot of firsts in the past month....
She goes in the nursery at church, hence the vocal part above!

Hannah also stayed in her first hotel on our trip to Georgia. We stayed in the same hotel her dad did while he was growing up and took trips to Michigan from Georgia.
She had her first dip in the pool. It was something I really wanted to do while we were on vacation. It was past her bedtime but we tried anyway. She loved it!

It was also her first road trip! All the way to Georgia! To meet her friend Paul. Paul's dad, Chad and Mike grew up next door to each other. Paul was born only 3 hours after Hannah. We love visiting with the Spence's and now it's even more fun with the kiddos!

Me, Hannah, Jessica (Chad's sister), her son Colin (one month older than the other two), Martha and Paul. It was a houseful..so much fun with the babies!
And with that, I'll wrap it up... I think Hannah is getting bored!
