*You are rolling all around now, every which way, and somehow getting somewhere. You aren’t crawling yet, but you really want to get places. You get frustrated and whimper at the things you aren’t able to do yet.

You are generally a very content baby and there’s not much that you don’t like. You still aren’t a huge fan of your Jumperoo and you dislike that you can’t quite get where you “need to go” yet. You have become very opinionated and become FIXATED on things that you want, like a certain toy or a certain place in the house.
I can hardly believe that half of a year has passed us by already. You amaze me with your constant movement and the new little things you do each day. I love snuggling with you and snatching you up in the early morning and bringing you back to bed with us for a few more hours sleep. My heart bursts when I see your picture and you are love in its purest form.
