Happy Mother's Day

My first mother's day. It's been a long journey getting here but I couldn't be happier. Red Fish is the sweetest child in the world. I swear sometimes she is so cute I can hardly stand it. I couldn't be more grateful for the opportunity I have been given to be a mother. It's the most wonderful thing that has ever happened to me. I'm also My family makes me so happy.

I can't believe Red Fish is six months old already. She is getting SO BIG. She weighs almost 17 lbs. This week she has turned into such a little person. She has been rolling for months but now she is starting to use it to get places or reach things. We are in the process of seriously baby proofing the house. She just figured out a new form of mobility yesterday. She does a back bend with her stomach stuck up in the air and slides backwards on her head and pushes with her legs. It is SO funny looking. I’ve got to try and get it on videotape. She is going to rub all of the new hair off her head. I try to keep her on a blanket because I’m afraid she will get a carpet burn on her head.

We took the little baby sling out of her bath tub so she sits down in the water now and just goes nuts. She is wildly kicking and thrashing around while you bath her and I always end up soaked. It’s okay though I really want her to like the water. I already bought her a little life jacket to use this summer so we can take her in the pool at my parent’s house.
