Mya is 6 Months Old!

Our baby girl is half a year old!  Holy cow!  What a happy, easy going, smiley little thing she is!  Truly she is such a happy baby!  Her sweet little face always has a smile on and her belly laugh is contagious!  Mya continues to bring such pure joy to our lives and we love her more than we ever thought possible.

This past month Mya has been a busy girl...  she started sitting up all be herself right after her 5 month birthday.  She rolls over in both directions and will roll for miles if we let her.  In the past two weeks she has figured out crawling position and she rocks back and forth on all fours.  She's starting to scoot and unfortunately she will be crawling very soon I think!  Mommy and daddy are not ready for crawling!  Two kids on the go will equal very tired parents.  :)  Last week Mya visited the doctor for her 6 month checkup.  She's growing right on track!  She is right at 14 pounds putting her in the 21st percentile for weight.  She is 26 inches tall putting her at the 75th percentile for height.  Little miss is long and lean... but believe me she still has her chubby areas and little rolls. 

At 6 months Mya is...

*wearing size 2 diapers
*starting to wear size 6 month clothes
*eating two meals a day of fruits and veggies (and LOVING it).
*becoming a better sleeper ;)
*rolling in both directions
*getting up on all fours (not quite crawling yet)
*LOVING her big brother!
*saying "dadadadada" much to mom's dismay  ;)
*babbling up a storm and laughs at anyone and anything
*as easygoing as they come
*continuing to fill our hearts with so much love!

My sister Marcia graciously took some very last minute pictures for us last week.  So, here is Miss Mya Paige at 6 months...

Pumpkin Patch 2013

Of course we had to visit the Pumpkin Patch this year!  Landon was so excited and I must admit, I was too.  Nothing gives a mother more joy than to see her kids happy.  I just love watching Landon experience new things and get so excited over the smallest stuff.  We went the Saturday before Halloween and the weather was amazing!  We went to Daniels Farm in St. Charles and I think we found our Pumpkin Patch... close to home, very fun and reasonable prices!  They had so many fun things for the kids to do.  Landon enjoyed them all!


 They had big tractors to try out!
Little tractors to ride!

A fun horse swing just like the one Grandpa made for the farm!
and BIG tire swings!

In the end we had a great time (Mya slept the whole time in the stroller) and found the perfect pumpkin!  Here's a sweet picture of Landon watching daddy carve the pumpkin. 


Halloween 2013

Landon sorta understood Halloween this year.  He realized that if you smile and look cute that people give you candy.  He thought that was pretty awesome!  We only made it to a few houses, but he sure did have fun.  Mya was pretty much just along for the ride but we think she is the cutest bumble bee we know!
Last Sunday we went to my Aunt Patty and Uncle Dave's house for a fun Halloween party with all of my cousins and their kids.  Here's a group picture of all the kids....  this group is still growing!  They don't know how lucky they are to have so many cousins!
I know that next year will be even better.  Landon will be more into the whole trick or treating thing and Mya will be able to tag along!  We hope you all had a safe and fun Halloween!
