7 months!

I can't believe this little girl is getting so old! Since she most likely my last I'm trying to savor up every moment with her. I want time to hold still for at least a few months.

Halle now rolls over both ways! I can't believe her tiny body can do that. She smiles a lot, I've got her to laugh a couple of times, and she loves to talk. We are working on tummy time more, she just rolls over so this one is hard. She is sleeping so much better, knock on wood. She is the happiest in the mornings. She loves to play with her Gymboree thing, and hair she loves hair, I give her a Barbie and she goes crazy. She absolutely loves her brother Mason and she tries and gets anything in her sight, including my phone right this second.

She is so fun, even though she is the hardest baby I've had. I guess she deserves to be a bit spoiled for everything she went through to get here. We are working very hard on getting her to sleep more so I don't have to be a zombie everyday. It's going pretty well too. So I'm very excited about that!

I just can't believe this year is going so fast! I'd like to say Halle is my last, after everything I have to go through. It's so incredibly hard on my body, and on Brandon having to pick up all of the pieces. I really want to adopt, I think it will be a great way to show Halle that it can be a wonderful experience. Since she's unable to have children. I still have a lot of time to think of what I want to do. Time just goes to fast not to think of what life holds for us in the future.

We have really big news, but I'm not allowed to share yet. I'm excited about it, and I think it well all work out for our family.

Halle 6 months.

I can't believe it's been 6 months since I delivered this beautiful little girl. I don't think I will ever forget that day, the feelings I was having. We were unsure if she would even be able to survive the labor. She surprised me and came out crying. I had been preparing myself that she wouldn't make it to protect my heart.

She is amazing I still look at her in awe! I get teary eyed a lot still, I cant believe she's here with me. All of my dreams of what I wanted to do with her are coming true! It's an amazing feeling. On the other side of that feeling, she is the whiniest baby ever! I think Heavenly Father knew I need to be so grateful for her to be able to live with us, just so I could deal with how fussy she is! The last few days have been the hardest, with no sleep and her just fussing all day. Took her to the doctor and she's not sick. I'm losing it over here! The sad thing is all she has to do is smile at me, and it gets me through the next few hours.

Well she is now 7 lbs 5 ounces and is 21 inches. She just looks huge to me now, but I still get stopped constantly asking how old my "newborn" is. She rolls from her belly to her back, she has been reaching for toys. I think her eyes are doing fabulous, but we go in again to check her eyes in June. She smiles at everything. She only laughs in her sleep. She has lost her hair. I was really hoping she would keep some. We have to in for our first Endocrinologist appointment in June also, I'm curious as to when we will have to start her growth hormones.. She is still extremely spoiled! She sleeps okay, she has 5 really good nights only waking up once then the other nights I swear she's up every hour.

Mason and Adalyn are still very good with her. Mason had his kinder garden checkup it is blowing my mind that he will be old enough to go to school. Adalyn will be attending preschool they are just getting to old!

Mason is such a good kid most of the time, he has entered the whiney stag. It is driving me crazy, I do know it will end. He is very excited for school. He got his shots the other day and was so brave only cried for a minute. Way different from the last time. I had to carry him out still screaming and kicking his legs the worst ever!! He is learning stuff everyday, he is really good with numbers and pretty good with his letters. We do have to work on the letters this summer, like the sounds he gets confused. He absolutely loves transformers, power rangers, oh and swimming.

Adalyn is still so stubborn. She is the funniest girl I know. She tests her boundaries every hour it seems. She can be sweet and just wraps her arms around my legs and tells me she loves me out of nowhere. It's my favorite.
