Too Fast!

My daughter will be 6 months old as of this coming Wednesday, and I have to tell you that it is entirely too early for her to be doing this:

What's that? Did we put her there?? Did we prop her against the crib railing??? Oh, no. She definitely pulled up there on her own. Actually, this is the third time she's done it... after we had already lowered the crib mattress following her first time. And now we're going to have to get one of those teething rail thingies because she just wants to chew on it! Plus, she now thinks she can stand all the time and wants to pull up on everything, so she's no longer content to sit around. Noooooo...... you just try to sit her on the floor with a bunch of toys and see how that works for ya. Good luck, friend. The crying is getting to be a bit much, actually, but I know I should be thrilled that she's working so hard to get mobile. *It's only a phase, it's only a phase...* Oh, and the talking has turned from mostly vowels to lots of consonants since she found her tongue a few days ago. Here's the current favorite face:

Love it! My world is totally changing (every day, it seems like!). She is such a joy, and I cannot believe how quickly she is growing up!

Oh my. Get this--Jonas still isn't even rolling over consistently yet! Good luck, girl!

Yes, you said it, "What joy" this little one brings to your life. My four children still bring me joy, and they are (almost) 50, 52, 54, and 56. So hang in there; it just goes on and on!

Oh, man -- Mamaw put my age in there. Of course, I'm going to claim the "(almost) 50"!!!!

As for Abby --- she is soooooooo adorable. Standing in that crib is just too cute. I think I remember teeth marks all around our crib. Our crib was so old we didn't have the plastic covers for it. :) Her crying will lessen when she can crawl forward and she can get around some. Of course, then she will just crawl around following you and cry to be picked up! She's definitely a cutie.
