Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: Alyssa Turned 6 Months Old

Alyssa Turned 6 Months Old

As of May 16, Alyssa is now 6 months old.  For those who have been following along, this past weekend was my first Mother's Day, and this same weekend last year is when we announced to our friends and family the news.

She is hitting milestones sooner than most babies.  She's been rolling over since she was 3 ½ months.  She broke her first tooth through on April 30 and her second tooth followed on May 10.  She's also sitting up on her own, which the doctor is amazed by all these things. 


She amazes me everyday!  Boy, how the time has flown by.  Here are some pictures of us and her.

Russ, Thanks.  18 years ago, I was in Junior High and it seems like ages ago!!

Cyndee, Thanks, and I still get questioned about why I did that, but I wore a gas mask!

Barbara, Thank you!

Vickie, I don't think twins is "cheating" as they're much more work than one!  I always wanted twins, and now I'm so glad I didn't have them because some days are much harder than others.

Kathy, Thank you very much!

Patricia, Yes, I'm having a blast.  She's so much fun these days, except when she wants to be held only by me and no one else, and she's giving Grandma (my mom) a huge complex about that.  I know she'll get over it, and hopefully that time will fly too.

Linda, Thank you!

Steve, Personality she definitely has!

Duane, A little fast, yes, but at least I get to enjoy it.  Many half days in daycare and she plays hookie a lot too!

Loreena, Thank you!  I can't really tell yet, but I find it odd when people say she looks like Mike because he has beetie little eyes and a pointed nose, and Alyssa does not.

Missy, Thank you.  No, no news yet.  We should know more by the end of the month.
