1/2 a year!

Wednesday, May 4, 2011

Yes, it has been over two weeks since Siena Joy turned 1/2 a year old. It is actually really crazy that I have a 6 month old babe and that today she is actually closer to 7 months.

Here is her little 6 month old profile:
- Continues to be shy about rolling over and her favorite spot to do it is in her crib after naps
- Is now eating peas, avocado, green beans, banana, and brown rice cereal
- Is FULL of smiles
- Very interested in toys and grabbing things (even pinching skin)
- Growing back her pretty hair & has her little hair swirl again!
- Says adadada
- LOVES being outside and going for walks
- Is super interested in watching bigger kids
- Can nap almost anywhere we go & takes 2, sometimes 3 naps a day for between 45 mins and two hours each time
- Sleeps from 6:30pm - 7:30am (waking up around 1 & 4 - crying for a little bit and going back to bed, and eating around 6am)
- Smiles huge when she sees daddy

I love my sweetie pie. She is a bundle of joy and is such a blessing to our lives. Her personality has totally changed since she was a newborn and she is SO easygoing and loves playing!

Thankfulness (FINALLY!) #23 Dwelling in Joy
As we pray and thank God, we are filled with joy, and as we express joy, our hearts again turn to gratitude. Regardless of what is going on in our lives, we can respond with a heart full of joy because we know that our redeemer lives, that all things work together for good to those who love God, that our Lord will never leave us nor forsake us.
Joy is the natural response to such jubilant promises!

Job #23 - What are you most joyful about? Pray and ask the Lord and write it down & pop it into your jar of blessing!



  1. I'm joyful that despite where I am right now God sees me moving in forward motion as HIS spirit moves in me and calls me into a deeper and more real relationship on earth. Despite myself HE IS STILL GOD :)


    love this post. Your daughter sounds like such a bundle of blessing!

  2. happy 6+ months, Siena Joy!!

    I've been overwhelmed by the JOY God gives, in times when I can't imagine being joyful at all. I think its in those difficult times, He shows us exactly why HE is enough and all we need.

  3. Aw, how cute that she says "dada"! Yay for being half a year old!
