6 Months Old
Can my baby really be 6 months old today? My, how time flies! Half a year already. It sounds like such a long time, but in reality it has come and gone so quickly. Adrianna has changed and grown so much in 6 months time. So have we.
Nothing that is within Adrianna’s reach is safe anymore. The dogs, the wall, the carpet, her toys, my hair, my earrings. All are subject for grasping, scratching, and/or tugging. While I am excited and anticipating her beginning to crawl within the next few weeks, I am also dreading it. Our house isn’t baby-proofed at all yet. I was hoping we would be moved to a new house before we would have to baby-proof, but it doesn’t look like that will be the case. Once she starts to crawl I will really have to keep an eye on her. And so will the dogs.
Speaking of dogs: I am proud of Chloe and Molly. Both have had their tails or other body parts pulled on, and they have been really patient. Such good dogs. Not once have they given me any cause to worry about them. They are extra needy now that they get less attention from me. Often when I am holding Adrianna, both dogs will feel the need to also be in my lap. When they are not in my lap, they are at least close by. A normal day for me consists of my carrying Adrianna to whatever room I am hanging out in, followed by Chloe and Molly. So all of Greg’s girls are always pretty much together. Greggor is the lone alpha male.
Tonight we fed Adrianna green beens for the first time. She didn’t seem as excited about them as she did the carrots, but she didn’t spit them out either. I will have to post pictures later on. I would do it tonight, but I have to be AT work in 6.25 hours. I guess I should go to bed now…
