6 Months- A Half A Year...

Wow, I can't believe that Lauren is 6 months old as of Sunday! A half of a year sounds even older! She has officially outgrown that "infant" feeling and is pretty sturdy. She loves James and when he talks to her she usually just laughs. She goes after everything and can move pretty easily, so that is opening a whole new set of "rules." She goes after the books James is reading and toys he has. I have to just laugh at the look on James' face. He's like, "Um, excuse me!" We will be starting baby food in the next couple of days, so I'm sure I will have some pictures to share of that! She props herself up on her knees which is quite scary to me. I am not really interested in having her crawling anytime soon! I think she will just so she can follow me around! :)
Her big issue is she is still entirely too attached to me. And until you've been around us to experience first hand what this "attachment" is like, you can't imagine! I need to talk to the doctor to come up with a possible solution. It's pretty bad. I can't set her down which means I have difficulty getting things done around the house and when I do put her down she screams, and screams, and screams louder. She doesn't go to other people normally, not even Luke. I'm afraid I have a spoiled child, but not sure how to break her of it.
And she hates the car more now than ever, so I have to decide how badly I need to get out of the house because I know I am going to endure an entire car ride of high-pitched shrills. I am going to have to get a pair of ear plugs for myself soon. I mean, you would think she was being tortured!!! People are always looking at me in the parking lot. I'm sure they think I'm hurting her. Anyway, we do truly love our little Lou-Lou, but are ready for her to spread her wings so to speak and get used to other people. We are looking forward to the next several months when we can enjoy her even more. Luke always says, "I know she'll be sweet...someday."
