"A portrait of my child, once a week, every week, in 2013."

Lucy: happy half birthday. 

6 month stats // 13lbs, 9oz // 25 in

We're calling her our "baby toddler." She's crawling. Determined to get wherever she sets her sights. And willing to tantrum towards anything in her way. She's brave about her movement, pulling herself up to standing, lots of downward dogs, and is happy to tumble and start right back again. We've had a few bumps and cries along the way, but (thankfully) nothing a good cuddle can't calm quickly. 

We celebrated half birthday with "avocado cake", Lu's first foods. This girl loves her avocado. I've had anxiety surrounding foods, but found it pretty joyful to experience her first reactions. 

Lu's finding her voice and becoming quite the chatterbox. We're hearing more and more giggles out of her and loving every minute.


  1. What a sweetie. Foods are a fun new adventure all on their own. Have fun with it!! Also, buy a smock with long sleeves and elastic cuffs, will make feeding so much more fun for you because baby won't need a bath after every meal! :)

  2. I wanna hear giggles and squeals...we must skype soon!!
