sibling comparison at 6 months....

And because I'm being all sentimental and couldn't help myself...
Her and Saw definitely have the same hair.  But her nose and chubbier face is more like Graham's.
They are all related, that's for sure!

Miller Kate || 6 months

Dear Miller Kate,

6 months old!  Wow, I'm not entirely sure how that is possible but the calendar is assuring me it's true.  Time is flying!  There aren't enough words to describe how much joy you've brought us all.  We are all so in love with our little sister and you just eat it all up.  So laid back and easy with the smiles! It's so bittersweet watching you grow.  Obviously I'm so thankful you are healthy and thriving but it all just goes too fast.  

We are entering one of my favorite baby stages.  You are becoming so alert and starting to play with toys and jibber jabber.  You'll be sitting up soon, which you so desperately want to do.  You love sitting in the bumbo, high chair or exersaucer.  You want to be able to see what is going on.  You are in your swing less and less, thinking soon it will be time to pack it up.

You weigh around 17 lbs from what I can tell at home.  You are moving into 6-9 month clothes and wearing size 3 diapers.  You nurse every 3-4 hours.  No set schedule since we spend all our days together!  You had your first taste of cereal this past weekend and you liked it. 

You are our best sleeper yet!!  We moved you up to your room about a week ago and you've done great.  You were running out of room in the bassinet.  You go to bed between 8-9 and usually sleep until between 6-7.  You occasionally wake up during the night but it's not too often anymore.  You usually take 2 good naps during the day, morning and afternoon.  You are definitely attached to your thumb and it's still the cutest thing ever!

You are definitely loved hard...your brothers can't get enough and between them and me and daddy, someone is constantly kissing you.  It is such a joy to be your mommy and I'm incredibly grateful that God picked me for you!

I love you so much, precious girl!
Mommy

Here are some pictures of you at 6 months:

January days....

It's been a little quiet around the blog and while we haven't been doing too much at home I wouldn't say it's been quiet.  Ha.  It's rarely quiet around here.

Here are some pictures that captured a little bit of our January.

Happy, laughing baby!







He LOVES this scooter!  He's torn up 2 pairs of shoes riding it because he drags his right foot to brake instead of using the actual brake.  And yes, he needs a helmet.  It's been ordered.

So much fun living so close to cousins!

These two are only 6 months apart and will start school together in the fall.  I pray they are always, always this close!!





He's learning the monkey bars...boys has some skills...


Just so thankful for ordinary moments with some extraordinary kids!

Ringing in 2015...

We had the best New Years Eve!

This girl was by far the best part of 2014!  Can't imagine our family without her sweet smiling self!

We started the night off bowling with some friends.  It was lots of fun and the kids loved it!





little ham!


After bowling we went over to a neighbors house for some yummy snacks, a bonfire and some fireworks.  We moved into the neighborhood my sister and her family lives in and it is full of young families and we are loving it!

The boys loved it too.  They love all the neighborhood friends and they were excited to hang with them and do fireworks.








We actually made it until 11:15 (MK napped in the ergo some of the night)!  I was really surprised.  All the kiddies did great and had a blast.  We got them jammied up and into bed and then had a "champagne" toast. ;)  It was so fun!
Then Keith and I rang in the new year with some real champagne!

Loved the whole night so much!  

I'm so excited about 2015 and can't wait to see what God has planned for our family!!
