To Dorothy on your six month birthday

Sweet girl,

I can't believe you are six months old today. The time is going so fast! Another six months and you'll be a whole year old... but let's not think about that right now. You have gotten so big!

You love playing in your Exersaucer Mega. It is so fun to watch your eyes light up as you try to decide which toys to play with. You love to try and get the toys in your mouth!

You have given yourself a new bedtime lately, and mommy really likes it. You go to bed every night at 7:00 without even crying. Sometimes you wake up for a bottle, but you always go right back to sleep until about 8:00 am. You're such a good sleeper! Every night we have the same routine now. You eat your cereal and veggies at 6:00, bath time at 6:30 and bedtime bottle at 6:50. Hopefully sticking with this routine will help you stay on the right track with sleeping.

Now that mommy is working a little bit, you get to spend more time with Grandma. All your grandparents love you so much. Grandpa thinks you're so very cute. He loves it when you come over so he can hold you. You even fell asleep in his arms the other day, which you rarely even do for me!

You have the biggest blue eyes I have ever seen. You are so curious about everything around you, looking at anything you can find. You smile at anyone who will talk to you. You've even started laughing a lot lately. Your giggle is so contagious that I can't help but laugh, too.

I think you'll be very happy when you can crawl around and explore even more. Right now all you can really do is try to roll over. Sometimes you make it, but you're trying so hard! You're in your 6-9 month clothes now. Boy, do you ever grow fast! We're going to need a new car seat really soon. Tomorrow you have your six month checkup. I bet the doctor says you are 100% healthy.

You are the best baby ever!

That is such a sweet letter to her. You should print those out for her for her baby book when you write these for her.
She is very cute and chubby!

How adorably cute. She is such a lovely baby. That is a beautiful letter to her. I am sure she will love it once she learns to read. Good luck to her and to you all.
