Emilia is 6 months

Our baby girl is 6 months you guys and I can't even believe it. How has it been a half a year already since she joined our family. I still remember daydreaming about her and now she is here. This time last year we found out she was going to be a girl and I completely lost my mind. A baby girl after 3 awesome boys was a total dream come true.

She is just a happy and content baby this girl I tell you. She is totally following up in her big brother's Bean's footsteps. She only cries when she needs something otherwise she is just happy and content. She is such an amazing baby. We definitely lucked out in the baby department.

I made this video of her for her half birthday, she is so fun to watch I tell you
Baby girl has mastered the art of sitting up and now she wants to start exploring the house. She is now trying to move and always pulls forward when she is sitting down. She is so adorable you guys, I can't even deal
She is healthy as can be weighing 17lbs 8oz and 26in. She has rolls for days and I just love them. She is also constantly giggling. I just love her sweet happy smile and her chubby cheeks
Are you looking at me
I just love her big brown eyes and chubby cheeks, my little mini
She is still a great feeder but I think she is done nursing. I tried everything I could during the holiday to get her back on the boob but she wanted none of it. I think she is really done nursing now. She hasn't really nursed in almost 2 months. I am so bummed that it ended so suddenly, I was so not ready. I am so sad that this nursing relationship ended so quickly but I am happy that I still make plenty of milk to sustain her by just pumping. 
I hate pumping so much but I will keep it up for as long as I can to continue to feed this beautiful girl some breast milk. The silver lining of the whole thing is that when I am ready to be done it's going to be an easy process, no baby to wean.
She is worth every bit of stress for sure
She is still sleeping like a champion. We are two months into this great sleep business and I am so thankful for that. Now that I am back at work, I really cherish the good sleep. She usually goes down for the night around 11pm and doesn't wake up until 6am. That's a 7-hour stretch which is amazing at this stage of the game.

My beautiful little poser
This girl is just so amazing and I am so happy that she is ours to keep
Emilia is so curious about the world around her. She is always looking to see what she can get into and checking things around her.
What is this dress I have on :)

Her bottom two teeth popped through on 2 January and now you can really see those bottom teeth. I had to tickle her to get her to show those teeth :)
The arrival of teeth messed up her sleep for about a week but she is back to normal now so we can't complain.

Happy 6 months to our sweet baby girl. We are so blessed to call you ours and are totally enjoying every minute of your first year of life. We celebrate every milestone and we love seeing you grow strong and healthy everyday. We love you to the moon and back sweet baby.
