The stockings are hung by the chimney with care

1/2 Way to Happy Birthday!

Once again I can't believe its already the 28th of the month and this one is even more unbelievable because she is 6 month old!!!!!! I mean if the next 6 months go by as fast as the last 6 months she will be a year old like......SOON! I do have to say though that this age is so much fun. She is learning and doing new things daily and once she gets it she doesnt stop...like rolling! Once she learns how to get those arms and legs working at the same time she will be crawling which I don't think is too far off! She is still such a happy baby and loves to smile and laugh! We definitely got lucky with this one ;)

Here are some of my favorites from her 6 month shoot

First Christmas present!

With Christmas only 38 more days away I DO need to start thinking and making some lists! For years I have always had my tree up and home decorated WAY before now but for some reason I am just putting it off this year. I think it is because I look at my living room and see 4 pretty big baby items that have taken over and think "Now....where am I going to put that tree since the exersaucer, jumper and swing are in the way?" This weekend it will happen though!!!!

Back to my title though, I have been thinking hard about what we are going to get Jacie. I don't want to go overboard because I will leave that to our familes ;) But I do want to get her some things we REALLY do need and now that is she becoming less of a little baby and more of a big girl we are needing some older baby things. So this weekend while hanging out on FB I came across a post about 2 coupon codes I could use to get a convertible car seat. So with 45% off a 300 dollar car seat I said why not and got it for her. It came in the mail today!!! For now she can still fit into the infant seat but I gotta tell ya it is not easy to carry her around in it anymore. I am guessing we will start to put it to use in the new year. So there ya have it. Her first christmas present is a car seat!! and yes, I will wrap it and put it under the tree for her ;)

In other news, I only have 2 more days until I get a week off! I can't tell ya how excited I am. I havent spend a whole need with Jacie since the beginning of August! Also we have her 6 month appt on Monday. It is about a week early but I wanted to get in during my break so I didnt have to take a day off. I can't wait to find out how much she has grown!
