Break out the cake!

 Six months ago my day started like this:

Four and a half hours later it had progressed to this:

And this is where we're at today:

Crazy, I know. In a lot of ways it seems like Penny was just born (and it seems like just yesterday Olive was born!). But at the same time we can't really remember what life was like without her.

At 6 months she is:
  • 18lbs 4oz
  • 27 3/4" long
  • a master sitter
  • a drooling machine
  • learning to sleep unswaddled 
  • sleeping through the night (for the most part. see above.)
  • cooing, shrieking and starting to "talk"
  • an occasional roller
  • enamored with her sister
  • not so enamored with the dog
  • a Sophie addict
  • adorable

Happy 1/2 birthday Pen Pen! Now, please stop growing up so fast. Thank you.


  1. Awww, Sweet! Happy Half Birthday indeed! (she's totally beating August in the weight/height category....). I love watching the sibling relationship grow - I'm sure you're enjoying it too!!

  2. Yes! I love watching them interact. Olive is so sweet and gentle with her. And Penny pulls Olive's hair with so much love! :)
