Crawls galore

I'm crawling!!  So - after a month of delay and teasing Mommy with, "oh - I think I'm going to crawl now, Oh - maybe not," Miss V has finally done it.  She crawled!  Her first official move one knee, then move hand, then move other knee crawl was February 6th and in the week and a half since then, she is practically a pro.  Well - I may be exaggerating a tad, but it's truly amazing how every day she gets better and better. 

Exhibit 1 - Today was the best day to date of me picking her up from school.  I came in and she was on the floor trying to do the down dog position - girl's got mad yoga skills.  She was holding herself up on her hands and pointing her toes with her booty up in the air in an upside down V, and doing a mighty fine job I might add.  But I digress.  She did not immediately see me, so I called her name a couple times and she actually turned around towards me.  I told her to come to Mommy and held out my hands, and SHE DID!  She slowly but surely crawled her way across the long mat towards me.  It was so great!  I met her half way b/c she was creating a traffic jam and I thought a confidence boost may be in order anyway.  And then she jumped for a few minutes in my arms!  Oh man - such fun was had by all! 

On another note... Last weekend I came home from the grocery store to this....

That daddy is no dummy.  Way to a woman's heart - baby and vacuum cleaner.  I'm sold!

6 Months Stats & A Photo Shoot

Miss V celebrated her 6 month birthday back in mid-January.  My friend Nick is quite the photographer extraordanaire and he took some pictures of her with his awesome camera.  I love how these pics turned out!  Miss V is such a little love and her fun personality shows more and more every day.   She smiles and flirts a lot (she is her mother's daughter) and has her daddy wrapped around her finger.  Just this past weekend she started crawling and is getting better and better at it every day and is giving kisses when promted and not prompted.  I love getting her kisses which are wet open mouth slobers, but I'm not choosy. 

I haven't felt very inspired to write a lot, so I will, for the time being, just share some of my favorite pics from the shoot as well as her 6 months stats.  Her weight dropped a little b/c we went in for her 6 month appointment right after she got this.

Weight - 25% - 14 lbs 3.5 oz
Height - 45% - 25 1/4 in
HC - 55% - 43 cm

And now for the best part... the pictures.
