Aletta: 6 Months

Our little precious is 6 months old! Here is some random info about her:
  • She weighed 17 pounds 9 ounces and was 25 inches long at her 6 month check up on Wednesday. I looked in Evie and Judah's baby books and Aletta is just a little bit bigger than Ev was at this age. Judah was quite a bit bigger than both of the girls :)
  • We just moved her up to her crib this week and she has been doing well. She sleeps from about 7 pm to 7 am. I will take that! She also takes two naps during the day that are between 1 1/2 and 2 hours long each.
  • Aletta loves hanging out in her walker and watching the other two play. It is obvious that she adores Evie and Judah.
  • I will probably start her on some solids this month...we haven't done any yet.
  • No teeth yet.
  • Kyle calls Aletta his little Toad. She has to be the cutest toad ever :)
  • Aletta rolls all over the place and can sit up for about 30 seconds at a time.
  • We love her and are so thankful to have her in our family :)

Evie the Artist

Yesterday Ev and I were sitting at the table and she asked for a pen and paper to draw. After giving them to her, I went about my business and a few minutes later I looked over to see this drawing. It totally surprised me because up until this point we've never see draw anything besides scribbles :) I'm sure most 3 1/2 year olds could draw this, but it was a first for Ev :)
We took this on photobooth which is why she isn't looking at the camera :)
