So I have been pretty slack with my blog since Mikayla has come along. I really wish I would keep up with it more because I really enjoy it. I always seem to get distracted though and then forget about it. There is so much to do and so little time.

Anyway since I have missed blogging about most of Mikayla's milestones I thought I would do a quick list of a few of them up to 6 months.

First proper smile was at 6 weeks

First time we heard that gorgeous giggle was at 8 weeks

Could lift her head up and support it in the air for a good length of time at 4 weeks

Slept through the night from 8 weeks (until teething kicked in 2 months later)

Got ears pierced at 3 months, and have not had any trouble with them

Rolled over from back to belly at 3 1/2 months, then front to back at 4 months

Army crawling at 5 months

Sitting unsupported at 5 months

First solid food at 5 months (it was baby rice cereal)

Drinking from a sippy cup at 5 months, and started drinking from a straw at 7 months.

Mikayla's first word was "Mumma" at 6 months. I was so happy!

My little girl has grown up so quickly and it is an honour to watch her grow. Mikayla is now crawling up a storm and climbing everything in site. She constantly keeps me on my toes and I love it! I can't believe in just 3 months she will be 1 year old!

Thanks for sharing all these milestones with us! One day Mikalya will be able to look at your blog, too. ;)

Hi Michelle,

I am so happy to see you back blogging. I have missed hearing from you. Thanks for the 6 month update of Mikayla. She is so precious! God bless her!
Happy Belated Father's Day to your hubby! Hope he had a wonderful day.

Yes Rita I thought if I put it down on my blog it would be a good reminder for me too :)

Hi Norma, yes it is good to be blogging again. Now that Mikayla is on a better sleep routine I have some time and energy to put into it again.

She sure is Mum :)
