{Lyla} 6 months old.

Half of Lyla's first year has now passed.  She has been with us for 6 months!    As my dad said the other day "She is gonna be a character!"  Not sure if this translates to non-Central/Western Pennsylvanians.  In other words--you can already see what a silly and fun personality she has!  We can get her to giggle at the drop of hat (often times during a crying fit we'll do something silly to get her to laugh...she will grin and giggle, then continue crying.  It is so maddening...but also hilarious).  As I posted before, Lyla's rolling like a champ and attempting to crawl.  Her 6 month doctor's appointment is on Friday and I'm anxious to see how much she weighs.  I've already given up lugging her around in her car seat--it is just too dang heavy.  We're getting good use out of our front carrier and sling.

She is one expressive little baby! (wearing her hat, on an unseasonably cool day in May)
She is babbling lots and lots..."dada", "baba", "abfff", etc.  She grabs everything she can reach (her favorites include my blackberry and the TV remote...).  She is [still] trying to figure out this whole sleeping thing....napping only in someone's arms or her front carrier and waking 3-4 times per night.

Yet still, we are smitten.  She is a little piece of heaven on earth.  Every day is a challenge but each morning I wake up excited to see Lyla grow and learn more and more.
