Hazel bird...six-plus months

Ummmm...Solid Foods...Peas are the favorite so far.
Still loves the Bjorn! Transitioning more to the pack pack...(to grabby for the bjorn) I fear she may burn her hands while cooking with me.

Loves to suck her thumb...especially with a blankie.

Still loves her mamma...I pretty much adore her too! I can't help but snuggle and kiss her sweet little face. She also loves to grab my hair and pull my face into her mouth. It really is like a big wet kiss. It's like she can't help but attack me too. Symbiotic snuggles.

(Click on the picture so you can see the thumb and blanket in action)
...and yes, lucky for us she still loves the bike trailer/stroller.

Oh and she has her first tooth.
We all seem to gravitate to her. Poppy tried changing her diaper yesterday (without my knowledge) she actually did a pretty good job. I was pretty glad however that it wasn't stinky.
Oscar loves to make her smile. Today after school he took her out of her swing and downstairs so that he could have her all to himself. I finally made him share her with Poppy. The two of them have competitions to see who can make her laugh and smile the most. It usually ends with Hazel crying in confusion.
Hazel can roll both ways and can do a great shoulder bridge. I think she may be a future Yoga instructor. She doesn't quite sit unassisted yet but is working on it.
I can't believe it has been six months! Where has it gone? Why haven't I posted all of the cute stuff you do??? It must be because you are baby #3. Gradually I am resuming normal mother mode...it just seems to have become a bit busier.
Hazel, if we have any more children it will be because you are so adorable! She truly is a great babe and I am so grateful for my three really great kids.

I can't believe she already has her first tooth. She is the cutest little girl. I want a little girl JUST because of her. Even Blake loves seeing her at church. You can't not smile when seeing her.

When you were talking about the "Bjorn", I was confused at first, wondering how you knew my teammate from Sweden. But now I realize you were talking about the pack! Silly me!

Hazel is adorable. I'm sad I don't get to come up this time with ma and pa. School and swimming won't let go, so I'll have to wait to hear their stories! :)

She is very cute! Isn't this stage so fun? Eva's doing all the same things, except for the tooth, for which I am thankful.
