For Shannon by request

Often times in the Robert's household we stop our day to take a dance break. This usually means Cambry has requested her favorite song "Low" (yes, I know I'm a bad mom) and wants to shake what her mama gave her. I dance with her while holding Colbie - who will probably try to set up a secret videotape one day to turn me in to CPS for Shaken Baby Syndrome. I think dancing is one of Cambry's favorite activities and she is pretty great at it, and not shy to share her moves with others. When bible study is held at our house she has no fear of dancing in the middle of a circle of adults who are all just standing around being entertained by our little entertainer. She changes up her dance moves frequently, so I captured what I could this time and I think I caught some pretty good ones. Please excuse the shaky video camera as I was laughing while taping. Enjoy.

Colbie

My sweet Colbie had her 6 month check-up this week. With the exception of the shots it went really well. I'm just struggling to come to grips with the fact that my baby is 6 months old!!! It's gone by so fast and in 6 more months she will be a year!! I'm just trying to soak up every moment with my sweet Colbie that I can. Here are her stats from the appointment: height 25 3/4" which puts her in the 50 percentile, 89 % for weight at 18lbs 1oz (Corban don't let this scare you, we will work on it before she is of dating age) and her head is in the 96th percentile at 44.7cm (we are starting to look into extra large pillows). She is still a big babe, but very healthy. She seems to be losing some of the height that she was born with, but she makes up for it in weight and head size. She is also getting two bottom teeth that she is handling very well. I call her my sack of potatoes because she doesn't roll over yet she just lays around and smiles. She is still rocking her mohawk, but now we can get it to lay down for a while for a more sophisticated look until it starts to spring back up. She is a very content baby and loves watching what's going on around her and just taking it all in. She has a wonderful belly laugh that comes out when she is being tickled or laughing at whatever Cambry is doing to try to get a rise out of her sister. She has been the perfect addition to our family and I feel so blessed to have those cheeks to kiss every day.
