Dr. visit today

Today we had our 6-month check-up and Miss A is 26 inches long and weighs 15 lbs 5 oz. The pediatrician said she is progressing very well and looks great.

It seems like every time I blink my eyes, my little girl has changed and passed a milestone. Tonight is going to be a hard night (for me). Not only did Aubri eat her first vegetable puree, but she's sleeping in her own bedroom. Aubri is ready, but I've been telling Dustin for the past month that I'm dreading this day. Every night as I rock her and she falls asleep in my arms, I pray that God will protect and watch over her as she grows and matures. I keep thinking my heart has met its love capacity and then Aubri crawls into my arms or lays her head on my shoulder while sucking her thumb and my heart bursts with more love.

Right now, it's taking all my strength to refrain from setting up an air mattress on the floor in her room and sleeping in there until MOMMY is ready.

If I had my way, Aubri would sleep in her pak'n play in our room until she's 30, but Dustin thought it best for both her and me if she moved to her own bedroom when she is 6 months old. Well, her 6-month birthday is right around the corner, so I've started putting her down for naps in her crib so she won't be shocked when she starts sleeping in there all the time. The first time, she cried for over an hour before she fell asleep from exhaustion. Her second nap went about the same, until I couldn't stand the crying anymore. I called Dustin and he suggested that I put her pak'n play mattress in her crib so she feels more comfortable. And guess what?!? If worked. She rolled around and cooed for about 45 minutes, but didn't cry much at all before she fell asleep.

Broken Bow, OK

This weekend we went with Aunt Jacquelyn, Uncle Doug and some other families to Broken Bow, Oklahoma. We rented a big fancy cabin, swam in the lake and had a wonderful time.

We rented a pontoon boat to cruise the lake.

Aubri made friends with Dakota.

A lake rat is born.

Snuggling with Uncle Doug.

Family pictures

Two weeks ago, we went to a park in Arlington and had family pictures taken. I think they turned out really well. Here are some of my favorites. Copy and paste the link below to see the rest.

More water fun

We recently joined Lifetime Fitness and today we went swimming. Aubri really loves her float that Aunt Lauren got for her. We've taken it to the water park several times and we have a blast.

So maybe she's a little sad. :-)
