Can she really be 6 months old?

Good morning, Sunshine!Playing with Bandit!
Not so sure about Bully!
Daddy I want to be a cheerleader when I grow up!
1st football game!
Go Dawgs!
Pretty eyes!
Getting ready for the corn maze!
1st time to sit up alone as at the church fish fry! Luke set her up in the grass and she did it all be herself! I was holding her back! Who knows if she could do it before then! My sweet little bundle of joy is 6 MONTHS OLD! I know it is cliche, but I cannot believe I am the Mommy to a 6 month old. This is such a sweet age. She coos and babbles and blows bubbles. She loves bath time and sits up alone while she splashes in the water. She loves her jumpy-thingie, and especially loves it when Daddy makes it a little higher and uses it as a swing. She adores Bandit, and if he is in the room, you can forget her looking at anyone else. She is becoming some what of a Mommy's girl, but she still gives away her biggest smiles to her Daddy! She thinks Uncle Jake is the funniest person she has ever met, and when he is around she laughs and laughs! She is sleeping from about 7 pm to 5 am, and then goes back asleep until 8. We have been having some napping issues (2 45-minute naps), but over the weekend and today she has had a 2-4 hour nap in the afternoon. YAY! I think her teething has had something to do with not being able to sleep well, and her poor little nose is runny! She got my lovely sinus issues, bless her heart. She has two teeth on the bottom and will still chew on anything that gets near her. She LOVES to eat, especially squash and bananas. If I don't feed her fast enough, she gets a little impatient and will let you know about it. I have always fed on demand, and she has been on the same schedule since she was about 3 months old. 5 am (nurse or bottle when I am at work),8 am (nurse with cereal and fruit), 11 am (nurse), 2 pm (nurse), 5 pm (nurse with cereal and veggies), and 7 pm (nurse). She is such a happy baby! Weight: 17 lbs 7 oz (75th%) Height: 27 in (90%) HC: 47 cm(25%)
When the first baby laughed for the first time, the laugh broke into a thousand pieces and they all went skipping about, and that was the beginning of fairies. And now when every new baby is born its first laugh becomes a fairy.

Ok, I think that overall, she looks like Luke, but then in that one picture where she is wearing her MSU outfit, I think she is smiling like Kath! (Cath?) Crazy! Also, no wonder she's not digging Bully. Look how scary his mascot expression is.

She gets cuter and cuter by the minute!! But 6 months old?! I think children make you realize even more how fast time does fly by. I see it through my little brother and nephews. Wish I could have gotten to come and visit a couple weeks ago =(

She really is the prettiest little girl! I love her facial expressions!!!

I think she'd rather be with Col. Reb!

She is precious! She is a dead-ringer for her daddy though!

I love her. Will she be my baby's friend? Or better yet, if I have a boy can we match them up and then we can share grandbabies one day? Would kate go for a younger man?
Let me know.

I need to see her. Before her 1st birthday. Do you think she even remembers me? do you even remember me? I wish we all could live in the KD house again. Babies and husbands welcome.

That's all.
She's cute.
LOVE YOU.

She is precious! Her eyes are gorgeous! We waited in line last weekend to have our picture with Bully and when we finally got to the front...Ivy Kate just said NO! I guess he is kinda scary for little ones!
