Pretty in Pink!

To celebrate Baby Carrot's 6 month of life, we did a little photo shoot...she is getting so much fun to photograph! Thanks so much Brandon girls for helping get her to smile! I think they turned out so cute...since alot of you enjoy photography as well, any tips would be greatly appreciated.

K also had her 6 month appointment a couple of days ago. She now weighs 15 lbs 10 oz and is 25 1/2 inches (I think, I don't have the #'s in front of me).
At six months, she can...
...roll over- her area of expertise is from back to stomach, we are working on stomach to back.
...scooch across the floor at a rate invisible to the naked eye. Not so much because she is too fast to see, she has just mastered the art of being subtle. I can put her down, and literally stand there and watch her and still not be able to tell you how she got from point A to point B. My own little Houdini. solids. Rice cereal 2-3 times a day, and either carrots or bananas for lunch. Tomorrow we start prunes, yum yum (No I am not trying to torture her, I was afraid the rice cereal would clog her up so I got prunes to get her regular. So far it hasn't happened, so we will make sure she isn't allergic and then keep them on hand for bowel emergencies : )
...shriek at decibels previously unknown to my ears. Seriously, do all kids make this much noise???
....sleep 10-11 hours a night. HOW DID I GET SO LUCKY??? She also is getting better at naps. She still has a hard time going to sleep if I don't put her down at the exact right moment (not too sleepy, yet not too awake- it's a science really), but she is starting to stay asleep for 1-2 hrs each nap. YAY!
...bite really hard with HER FIRST TOOTH (sorry Cynda, you really took the brunt of that)!!!! We went through a little prima donna stage a week ago, and I decided she was either teething or hitting her terrible 2's a year and a half early. Thank the lucky stars it was just the first.
At 6 months Kerrigan HATES... blow dryer. How is a mother supposed to get body in her hair when her child screams in fear every time she turns on her blow dryer???
...Carrots. Poor girl hates 1/3 of her solid food intake. She still eats it, just gets a disgusted look on her face every spoonful.
...the vacuum- although I am not a huge fan either, must be genetic : )
...when I get on the computer. I am not sure why, but as soon as I sit down she cries and cries. Hence the lack of consistent bloggage.
That's it for now, but with a constantly changing daughter I can't wait to see what the 7 month update looks like.

I don't think you need any tips Lindsey. Your pictures are great!! Awesome job.

I loved the Obama story. You may have read on MaryAnne Miner's blog that her baby said the same thing. It just cracks me up!

I also LOVE the pictures you took of your friends. You are doing a great job.

Oh, a tip! You should download the free 30 day trial of photoshop. You can get it online at the adobe website. It's SO fun. There's just so much you can do with it.
