Happy Half-Birthday to Taya!!

Taya turned 6 months yesterday (time has flown)! We love our little babe!

Taya in a nutshell right now:

  • Alternate noises between lip buzzes, squeal screams, mamama, dadada, bababa, ... oh yes, and an occasional cry here and there
  • Roll around like crazy (she could put any fire out! - insert courtesy laugh here)
  • Laugh (but we have to work for it and it's always in response to bouncing her, tossing her, swinging her, etc. -- the lady loves to move!)
  • Shake her head and hips back and forth
  • Suck on EVERYTHING
  • Smile at and flirt with strangers and friends OFTEN
  • Work on sitting up (definitely still in progress)
  • Stand on our laps lots and lots
  • Arch her back for fun - over and over again

Was it really six months ago that you first called us about Taya's mobile? Time flies!

She is beautiful. I love the sleeping with the arms behind her head. Classic sleeping position.

Sorry I couldn't come Saturday - Ben was sick, but he's better now (just in time for church on Sunday, in fact) - you are still coming tomorrow I hope?

Wow, that made my night. I just love that little girl and I haven't even met her yet. She is so so very adorable. She has dimples?? What a beautiful smile just like her parents. Sounds like you guys are having lots of fun with her. That is such a fun age. I tell you it just gets better and better all of the time. Thanks for posting pics of her. Dave and I so wish we were coming to AZ for spring break again this year: Happy half birthday. Just think, in six months you get your very own cake:)

Happy 1/2 Birthday Taya! I love all the noises she makes. When John plays with Taya, I think it makes him want a little girl.

Don't forget to get a pic of her in her sweet jeans, she'll be out of them soon.

Awe Taye-Taye is 6 months already? I remember when she was just a little pea and I wanted to hold her all the time (still do). Love her dimples. Cute cute cute. I took James to work today and he was "woo-ing" all the girls already.
