Happy 1/2 Birthday Mirah!!!

Sweet Little M,

Tomorrow you turn 1/2! I can't believe it. Well, I can say that you have taught your dad and I a lot these past six months. Here are some things we can do now:

DAD:
1. Handle direct contact with bodily fluids on a regular basis. MAJOR.
2. Lull you to sleep on the most difficult of nights.
3. Make you smile just by entering the room.
4. Bring out the little dancer girl in you.

MOM:
1. Wake up. Go back to sleep. Wake up. Go back to sleep. Wake up. Go back to sleep. Repeat with varying degrees of intensity every night.
2. Do anything as if I had one hand tied behind my back.
3. Clean the entire house with you attached to me (via baby carrier). Including multiple trips up and down the stairs with laundry.
4. Change a diaper in under a minute.

And you, my dear, you are busier than ever. It's official YOU CAN SIT without our help. I still put pillows around you when you are playing because your form is not quite perfect just yet. Also, I discovered tooth #2 this past week. Way to go girl! Working on the solid foods. I gave you some banana and avocado and you weren't into them. In fact your not that into any solid food recently. I'm sticking with you though, I know nothing lasts for long.

Well, honey, I need to go to bed. I hope that you are having as good of time getting to know us as we have been with you. You truly light up our days and we are so lucky to have you in our life.

much love,

mommy
