Happy 6mth Birthday to Lil' Miss Miranda

6 mths

Today Miranda is six months old. We “celebrated” this milestone by going to the doctor and getting 5 shots☺ I think she does very well when she gets shots. Her face turns bright red and she lets out a cry so hard it is practically silent...then I pick her up and she stops immediately…no need to be a drama queen. I put her in the car seat, gave her a blanket and her paci and she fell asleep on the way home- without even a peep. The doctor commented AGAIN on how Miranda is an “active” baby. “Activity” runs on Dan’s side of the family, so we are not surprised. It will be interesting to see how her little personality develops.

Right now she loves listening to music, playing peek-a-boo, trying to drink from a water bottle, and (of course) chewing on everything. Much to her parent’s dismay, books are not her favorite things right now (but that doesn’t keep us from reading them to her). She would much rather chew on them than look at them and since books aren’t easy to get into her mouth she gets frustrated.

I was in the baby toy aisle at the store the other day showing the toys to Miranda to see how she would react. Of course, she loved each one. I almost walked out of there with a cart full of toys until I remembered that if I would have handed her a shoe or paper bag I would have gotten pretty much the same reaction☺

Anyway, for all of the fam out there the stats from her appointment are: 15 lbs 6 oz and 27 inches long. She gained 2 ½ lbs and 1 ½ inches in two months. All this growing and we haven’t even started solids yet. However, tomorrow is the big day! We’ll let you know how that goes.

We are just so thankful to our Heavenly Father for the gift of Miranda Claire.
