Six Months of Lena

While others were springing forward for Daylight Savings Time last week, we were falling back on the six months of precious memories we’ve had since Lena's birth on 9/10/11 (link). Our baby girl has grown in size, physical ability and adorability.

Speaking of abilities, Lena has been building quite the resume lately. DSC_0846.JPG Although Lena loudly objected to hopping into the new Kelty baby hiking backpack that I got from R.E.I. this week, her hardcore training regimen has unleashed an astonishing array of other super-infant feats.

Here are just a few examples:

Hit the "Play" button above for a video clip from Lena's very first attempt at swallowing formula mixed with cereal, before things got really messy

Jab the “Play” button above for a fun video of Lena returning home from vacation to wiggle, kick, sneeze, and make baby sounds to Needtobreathe's "I Won't Run."

And lastly, fighting her first head cold… We’re actually not laughing about this one. It breaks my heart to see my little 6 month old baby girl go 12 rounds with the oogies. But those sniffles are no match for Lena.

No one puts Baby in a corner!
