HAPPY HALF BIRTHDAY, CLOVER
Now that our little girl is here and 6 months old, she has brought more joy to me than I could have imagined. She has been fairly easy to care for and has been very healthy. She is very easy going and gentle. She loves her books and loves to play. She is a lot of fun and has a good sense of humor. She smiles constantly and is just a happy baby. She has her moments where she can be a little reserved and shy. Sometimes she seems to be just taking it all in, observing and thinking about everything. I'm wondering if we have just gotten really lucky that she hasn't had colic or gone through a rough period that would make my days and nights miserable. Then I wonder if maybe that is still to come. She has slept in her crib since she was 3 weeks old and usually sleeps at least 10 hours straight for the last 3 months. I still don't sleep as much as I would like, because I get up and check on her about 3 times in the middle of the night to make sure she is still breathing. I will probably do that until the day she leaves for college.
