Kinley loves a thrill!

Is it weird that my daughter LOVES to be scared?! 

Anytime I hide from her and jump from around the corner she lights up and usually I can get a pretty good giggle out of her.  Last weekend my parents were in town and we got a great video of her being "scared".  What you don't see is me hiding around the corner and jumping out each time (and looking like an idiot in the process I'm sure).  The last time my dad decided to jump out from the other corner too and she was actually quite shocked.

6 Months Old

Hard to believe my little baby is half-a-year old!!!  (And honestly not that "little" anymore either!)

Here's a few updates in the last month:

We had a LOT of "firsts" this month!

4/22 - 1st Fever: 102.2 = (  A quick trip to the doctor and found out she just had a cold
4/24 - 1st Easter!!!  All the Thompsons came to town, Gram, Papa Jack, Aunt Linde and the dogs too!
4/27 - Cut 1st and 2nd tooth!....thinking that may explain the fever!!
4/27 - Sat up on her own!
5/13 - Started solid foods - Barley cereal
5/20 - 6 month well check...drumroll.....
Weight:  17 lbs 5 oz (75th percentile)
Height: 28 inches (95th percentile)...she's literally OFF the charts!

Kinley is at such a fun age right now!  She smiles all the time, especially at Trent and me (MELT. MY. HEART!).  She really loves toys now and puts absolutely EVERYTHING in her mouth, I mean everything.  Once she cut her teeth, we learned that this lady has a serious bit!  Not sure how to explain "no!" to her, but I'm in some serious pain when she gets a hold of my thumb = ).  Sleeping is still a challenge, but nothing unbearable!  Eating is a blast - she's a total mess, but LOVES to eat.  So far we've done barley cereal, sweet potatoes, and avocado and she loves it all!  

Here's some pics!

Her first taste of Avocados!

Everyone should own boots...

I almost waited too long to try these boots on Kinley...they are still too big for her feet, but her precious legs just BARELY fit! 

Aren't these legs just PRECIOUS!!!
