Look who's 6 months old!

I know, hard to believe right?!  And to be quite honest, it is happening WAY too fast!  This little girl is so much fun.  She is THE HAPPIEST baby I have ever seen.  She is always smiling, giggling, or just plain content and we love having her around.  And she's such a beautiful girl too.  ( I get it, I'm biased, but seriously, look at her sweet face!)

I missed her 6 month appointment because of my new overnight shift.  I have to sleep sometimes!  So Tyler was a good daddy and took her.  Here are her latest stats:

Weight: 14.9 lbs- 44th percentile
Height: 26 inches- 77th percentile
Head Circumference:  17 inches- 82nd percentile

Looks like she has slowed down a little on the growing which is fine by me.  I don't want her growing up so fast anyway!

She is gaining more and more personality all the time.  She is grabbing for things, just started sitting up on her own, rolls over, and loves to play with toys. She is still a great sleeper and continues to sleep about 12 hours a night. It is amazing to have a baby that I can just put in her crib and she will go to sleep on her own.   She has been waking up a little earlier lately because I think she is getting hungrier. She has been trying to get her bottom teeth in as well, which she hasn't enjoyed, but she doesn't fuss too much.

(She sleeps with this cute little giraffe every night.  It winds up like a music box and plays music that she falls asleep to.) 

 Being six months old, she finally got to try solids for the first time.  She did great with them and seems to like her rice cereal a lot!

I can't express how much we love this little girl.  Happy 6 months Brooklyn!

Dad and Sawyer's hiking trip.

Sawyer may only be knee high to a grass-hopper, but his walking stick is still too short. 
 Sawyer was very accommodating on our drive into the mountains.  He agreed to ride on the trunk so that we could bring more gear.
 Apparently the phrase "Say cheese," means something different to a two year old. 

 It's not like we don't already have enough animals...but, Sawyer was insistent that he needed a pet rock.  Some families have an elephant in the front room, the York's have a ten-foot boulder!
 Somebody's been looking at too many military recruitment posters.
I knew the hike was over when his knees gave out and he refused to move.  Oh well, one man's "death march" is another man's leisurely stroll.

Alpine camping

 Sawyer does all his own stunts in front of a green screen.
 A bit reminiscent of Central Park circa 1933.
No one believes me, but I am single-handedly making the barrel chest fashionable. 
 Rodin?...More like Retard.

 A stream is incredibly exciting when you are two years old.
 Jagger tests the water so we know if it's safe to drink.
 A very tired Tyler, trying his best not to have a double chin.

 I swear, sometimes the light strikes me a certain way and I look like and entirely different person.

Brooklyn's hat is actually a little tight on her.  I wonder if she'll ever out-grow the "cone head" phase!
