Six Months, Already?

January 2nd, our sweet little Carmella was six months old!
I feel like a broken record, but where does the time go?  
Weren't we just waiting for her to arrive?
 It was a very cold day, (actually one of the few seasonal days we have had all winter) but we still bundled her up to sneak outside for a few pictures.
Once she got used to the cold, we had some fun.
Winnie continues to be the delight of her family.
She is such a pleasant and easy going baby.  She cried one night while we were eating dinner.  Everyone was in shock because it is such an unusual thing to hear her fuss.
Her great accomplishment right now is learning to blow raspberries.  Which is utterly hilarious to hear.  When I was pregnant Ellie would walk up to me and blow raspberries on my tummy.  One of the first things she did when meeting her baby sister was to find her belly button and give her a huge old raspberry.  Who knew Winnie would catch on so quickly?  After a week or so of all of us thinking Carmella blowing raspberries was so adorable, Allen pointed out that we never allowed the other kids to spit like that.
Oops.  You win some, you lose some.  Isn't that how it goes?


  1. SHE'S SOOOOO CUTE!!!!!! :D

    Sorry, I'm just swooning over baby cuteness again. :) Just like what I do with my baby sister every day. :D


    1. You would think we would be done with the swooning. But every day, every time I lay eyes on her, that is exactly what I do. And I am not the only one around here!

  2. *A*D*O*R*A*B*L*E*

    I can't believe how fast that went. She is such a precious gift from God!


    1. Yes, it has gone too fast! And, yes, she is a precious gift, indeed!
