Sunday Snapshot - 6 Months

It's back!  Sunday Snapshot!  Oh, how I've missed thee!  November was brutally busy with birthdays and sicknesses and soccer (oh my!).  I completely missed Stella's 5 Month pictures.  I believe I've mentioned that before.  But it's a new month and I'm back at it!


We decorated our trees last weekend (and the weekend before if truth be told) and I didn't get any shots of that this year, busy.  But I've been planning today for a while.  My return to Stella's monthly photos.  Worry not though, I hope to have a great Christmas photo shoot with the kids soon as I am currently planning our 2012 Christmas card.  Maybe next week's Sunday Snapshot will be a result of that!

But this week it's back to Stella.  Finally well she is back to herself.  I can't believe she is 6 months old (tomorrow) already.  She laughs, a lot.  She's discovered her feet.  She's teething!  There's at least one bottom front tooth she's been working on for about a week!  She adores her big brothers and easily acquires their attention whenever they're nearby.  She "talks", a lot.  She screeches.  Yes, screeches.  Happy screeches.  Mad screeches.  You name it, she's loud.  

She loves, and I mean loves, to eat.  Her favorite foods are bananas, carrots, and berries; although not all together!  She's also slowly working on Cheerios.  Today we introduced yogurt, soy of course with the milk allergy still an issue, and that went over very well too!  Other than green beans we haven't found anything she won't eat!  Avocados are next on our list of foods to have her try.  

She's still working on sitting up unassisted.  Her roundness makes that somewhat difficult.  We know she can roll over, she's done it at school, but she has yet to repeat that feat at home.  However, when on her tummy, she does begin to show the beginning of crawling movement.  This month will be her first Christmas.  That has always been one of my favorite parts of being a parent, the first Christmas.  It's always so much fun.  Although, the second Christmas is probably more fun for them because by that time they understand it so much more.

So, half a year has passed in the blink of an eye. Before you know it, I'll be posting about her first birthday!  But, such is life with kids and that's part of the fun of it all.  She, like her brothers, never ceases to amaze me on a daily basis.  She truly has us all wrapped around her chubby little fingers.  And I don't think any of us would have it any other way.

All is well, picture perfect, in Drosche Land.
