Six whole months with this little squishy girl seems unreal! I think I blinked, maybe ten times and in those ten seconds, she turned half a year old (insert tears). Danni has completed our family, she has been the most amazing blessing and I truly believe God knew what he was doing when he graced us with her presence. I always wanted to be a boy mom, I didn’t think dressing a little girl in bows and tights was going to be my thing; which I think most people find surprising. And when I was pregnant, although I had morning sickness this time around, I was still 100% certain I was going to have another boy. Man, was I wrong, and so very thankful that I was because this little lady has completely changed my thoughts, on the whole, having a girl. She may not always be wearing a bow, she may not be wearing a girly dress daily, and she may have crazy fuzzy hair instead of long locks like her brother had, but that’s our style and I wouldn’t have it any other way!! Her smile and sweet giggles more than makeup for any of that other stuff and I could eat her up, she’s so chunky and cute!
My girl is halfway to one and I don’t want to forget any moment with her, which is why I love to write it down and go back and read it later- it’s truly the sweetest! At six months, Danni is Miss Jabber Jaws; I think both of Daarik and I’s children will have the ability to talk to a wall, just like Daarik. She’s a little roley poley, she loves to be naked, she tolerates cereal but isn’t into much else (other than milk- we’re working on it), she is sitting up but not for too long just yet, she loves a rattling toy, she is always gripping onto my finger when eating, she’s a big-time hair grabber, she likes music, she loves a good bath and being cuddled after and she will hysterically laugh at Griffin; she is obsessed with her brother and that melts my heart.
Danni and Griffin are literally the light of our lives, they’re easily the most amazing part of our day and when Griffin bends over to give “sister bear” kisses, I can see what type of brother he’s growing into. She’s his girl; she’s all of our girl. So Danni, at six months Griffin is protective of you now… so in 16 years, bless your sweetheart!!
Happy half Birthday my little squishy babe, we love you to infinity and beyond!!
