6 months!

campbell turned 6 months about a week or so ago, and i took her in for her 6 month well check today. she weighed in at a whopping 17 lbs and is 25.5 in long! i can't believe that when we brought her home from the hospital she only weighed 5 lb 4 oz! she's really growing now :)

things that we love about her in this stage of life:
-she smiles ALL the time!
-when she sleeps she tucks her thumbs in
-she has had a few 'belly laughs' that are awesome!
-sleeping 11.5 hours each night and eats 4 times/day
-she loves eating solids
-she loves going to the nursery at church and her bsf class!

in other news...

1. we got our christmas tree! campbell picked it out all by herself! i really think she had a good time at the tree farm. we are so excited for campbell to celebrate her first christmas! i'm really looking forward to starting our own family traditions and going over with her the true meaning of christmas! next year will be even better when she can really understand and participate more. :) its amazing how children change this year brings on a whole new meaning for me as a mom. my heart is overflowing with joy and gratitude to The One who blessed us with this sweet baby girl.

2. we had to take wallace into the surgery center this morning because his back leg all of a sudden became swollen and inflamed...he wasn't even touching it to the ground. so, i dropped him off this morning (hesitantly) for an 'exploratory mini-surgery' if you will, to find the cause of his sudden leg trauma. luckily for our wallets, there was nothing wrong with the plate in his leg or with the screws, so they're not really sure why his leg acted up...we just need to continue antibiotics for a couple of weeks. in the picture below, they suggested we put a long sleeved t-shirt on him to prevent leakage on the floor! his legs are going through the arms and his tail is going through the head hole :) it took him a while to figure out how to walk with it on...

Without a doubt, my favorite pic of Campbell thus far. What a cutie pie!
I feel for Wallace. Hope he improves soon.

Oh Wally, Wally Wally, what are you going to do with him???

Just like Papa, I love the picture of Campbell, such a happy baby!

She already is a "social butterfly" like her mommy!

OK, 1. Campbell is adorable and I can't wait to kiss those sweet cheeks when I get to Oklahoma 2. That picture of Wallace is hilarious! He looks so defeated, but cute!
