Six Months

The last six months have flown by. Hazelnut has brought so much joy to our lives. It is wonderful seeing her big sister, LMI, cooing over her, tickling her and kissing her. They are so sweet together.

Hazelnut is thriving. At six months old she is growing and eating and sleeping so well. Considering LMI has always been small, it is so different for A and I to see what a child on the curve looks like ;). She's in size 3 diapers (same as her 2.5year old sister) and solidly wearing 6-12month clothes. Her hair continues to be dark and full and spiked. She lets me put ponytails and clips in it which I find so so cute.

Hazelnut's personality is starting to develop. She smiles when she feels fresh air on her face. When she tries a new food that she likes so giggles with delight. She laughs when we give her tummy kisses and when she makes noises with her mouth. Blowing raspberries is one of her favourite past times and she lights up when she does it. She follows LMI with her eyes and is always so focused on her. They already have a special bond that I look forward to watching over the years.

I get so many people telling me that she has my eyes. At first it was a bit weird for me, but I say thank you and laugh inside. Not only are they not my eyes (obviously), but hers are true blue and mine are green. I'm still very aware about the DE piece but I'm also so proud of it. It's just another part of what makes her so special.

Happy six month birthday Hazelnut. I love you!
