Six Blessed Months

Wow. That's about all I can say right now...wow, six months have passed since our lives were changed when we welcomed Cora Isabel into the world. It has been such an amazing journal thus far and it's so true that if you blink, your little one will be all grown up before you know it! I can honestly say that that little phrase makes me sick to my stomach because I'm now witnessing this growth firsthand. I knew this was going to happen and there is nothing I can do about it, but I'm going to hold Cora tighter, giggle with her more and kiss her chubby cheeks 100 times a day before she one day she doesn't think Mommy is cool anymore!

Stats at 6 months:
18lb 2oz (98%, weight of an 8 month old)
27 7/8in (off the charts, height of a 10month old)
head: 90%! (thank you Heeren genes)

Blurry but OH SO CUTE!

Best Buddy, Evan

Christmas Tree Hunting, 2010
She eats oatmeal in the morning and has started eating veggies and a little rice in the afternoon. She is also now only breastfeeding in the evening and formula during the day. She's a happy girl and LOVES her feedings!

Great Grandma Stolk
She's a stinker though when it comes to rolling. She CAN roll, it's a matter of when she actually WANTS to do it...on her own time. She would rather stand or go from laying on her back to pulling herself up with our help than sitting or rolling. She is one strong willed little girl!

Cora Isabel - you are one amazing little lady and to say that we crazy in love you is an understatement! We are blessed that God has chosen us to be your parents and thank Him every day for YOU!
