happy [half] birthday

happy half birthday my beautiful daughter! 

i can't believe that you are 6 months old today.  if you were able to eat cupcakes i would give you one.  you have a stuffed cupcake, perhaps i should introduce that today.  it seems appropriate.
i was cleaning out my camera and found these pics of us.  we hardly ever get pictures together so even though i'm a hot mess, have multiple chins and your hand is in your mouth i pretty much treasure these.  i'll do a whole post on all the new, fun things that 6 months has brought but that will wait.  for now we'll just be present to witness all your 'big-girl-ness' away from the computer, but probably with a camera still in front of my face.  sorry, i can't help it.  just look at you!
