Yesterday was Hazel's half-birthday
Its so weird to think that she's already 6 months old
As of yesterday
(the exact day she turned 6 months old)
Hazel decided to change the way we do things around here.
She no longer wants to be put to sleep.
I used to have to bounce her and sing her a few songs
until she was totally asleep in my arms before placing her in her crib.
Yesterday she wanted none of that.
I now just lay her in her crib (swaddle-free too)
give her a binkie and and blankie
and walk out.
It's kind of amazing.
This last month she also learned to sit up on her own
and started eating rice cereal
This little lady thinks that life is just so fun.
She spends most of her day kicking her legs or flapping her arms up and down.
Flapping her arms makes her a really good piano player too.
Hazel also really love kids for some reason.
I can't blame her though, she has a lot of really entertaining cousins that think its so fun to scare her.
Hazel was born with an exaggerated startle reflex which was pretty sad when she was smaller but is super entertaining now.
Cousins (and me and Ben) can hide over and over, jump out, and say "boo"
and Hazel will jump
Every Single Time
and she loves it.
Happy half-birthday little girl.
I'm excited to see what the next 6 months brings us
