    I can literally count on one hand how many times Elizabeth has slept in her own bed. Since we all share a room, it had just been convenient that we all share a bed as well. In the beginning, it was because of breastfeeding that I chose to co-sleep. Now it is because I love the closeness of my daughter next to me. I sleep better and I feel that she sleeps better.

    Being that she recently turned 6-months-old and that we are in the process of finding a new house, I find that it is a good time to start putting her to sleep in her own bed. I only made the decision of doing this because I feel that it would be harder on her if I were to start doing it in an environment she's not used to. And so far, she's been okay with it. It's harder on me than it is on her I'm sure.

half of a year

  Yep, it's true. My darling little baby is now a 6-month-old.  I used to think babies her age were "old". Kind of like they weren't that cute anymore now that they could pull your hair and scratch your eyes out. Now that I am a mom, and to a 6-month-old, I realize that it is not true at all. Of course she does pull my hair and occasionally want to pull out my eye lashes,but she is still the cutest thing in the world to me. I love her more each and everyday. The only sad thing is, is that in six more months, she will be one. That seems so far away, but then again so did 6 months when she was first born.

halloween and a big surprise!

      Halloween was really cold this year. I can remember last year's Halloween so well. Mainly because it was super warm outside. We decided to dress Elizabeth up as a bumble bee. She didn't eat candy, but she sure wanted to. Instead of trick-or-treating she helped me pass out candy to the neighborhood kids, which didn't end up lasting very long because of how chilly it was outside.

Elizabeth hadn't been sleeping well at all these past few nights and 2 days ago I found out why! She had two teeth come in at the same time! Poor baby, no wonder she was so upset. But oh boy am I one proud Momma :)
