6 months and a surprise!!

Dear Hannah-bean,

It’s hard to believe that you have been with us for half a year!  And yet, it’s hard to remember life without you.  We definitely didn’t laugh as much, that’s for sure.  You are officially all motion.  High energy.  All of the time.  You keep us on our toes.  You have learned how to scoot backwards and have taken just a handful of lunges forward.  You are still rolling over like a champ.  We had our first night away from you a week ago, a belated Christmas present for me of sorts.  We left you with your buddies, Caleb and Eden, and your dad and I enjoyed an awesome 24 hours in St. Louis.  I’ll tell you what, though… we missed you much more than I anticipated.  I didn’t like the thought of someone else getting to put you down to bed at night and someone else getting to see that first incredible smile of the day!  We’re really looking forward to these next few months ahead.  You are going to take your first beach trip in addition to getting to visit Charlottesville for the first time.  There are lots of people we are excited for you to meet!

Happy birthday, sweet girl.


Your spit-up covered (still) and very happy parents

Here you are in all of your 6 month glory:
