25 weeks old!!!

So as Mia approaches the 6 month mark, I can't believe how much she is changing. The funniest part is, it's only been 6 months, not years since her birth and yet in those few short (okay, sometimes, very long) months, she has grown and changed so much. Just for a reference her is our little bean at almost 4 weeks old. She is just so tiny laying there in that big huge tub.
Well this was Mia just a couple of days ago, she barely fits in her tub anymore!! Can you believe how much has changed in her 25 weeks of life. I know I say this every week, but I am astounded and amazed at what an amazing baby she is in so many ways.

Her other amazing thing she is doing is starting to sit up. Here she is leaning against the ottoman, but she is trying very hard to sit up "like a big girl". She still likes to throw herself backwards every once in awhile. She is also in LOVE with Comiskey, she will just sit and giggle while Comiskey just lies on the floor. It is so funny. We have to start putting Miskey outside while Mia eats, otherwise she just sits there and laughs the whole time!!
Well, we took our first "family Holiday outing" this weekend. We went to the Pride of the Wapsi Pumpkin Patch. It was so much fun to a "family" activity. I almost cried on the way home, just thinking about how far we have come in the past couple of years, and how amazingly blessed I have been. So here are the pictures from the pumpkin patch.
Here is Daddy holding Mia in the Pumpkin Heads.

The 2 pumpkins we picked out...the big one weighed 30 pounds!! haha!!

Here is Mia in her jean skirt. I had to take a picture because her belly is too big and she probably won't get to wear it again!!
And here she is...25 weeks. Can you believe it! She is almost 6 months old already. She is towering over her little bear now.
And here are 2 pictures of her sitting up SO BIG!!!! I just stare at her and can't believe this little being who just 6 short months ago couldn't even hold her head up, is now sitting on her own. Wow, what an amazing journey this is and will continue to be.

So sweet! It really is amazing how quickly they grow. I still haven't figured out where the last 6 years have gone! I know it will be the same thing with this next baby.

Mia is absolutely adorable and I love that you are capturing her so well in pictures. Of course you'll always have your memories, but I absolutely LOVE to look back at all of the snap shots I have of my children when they were small and the memories come rushing back even stronger. You'll be so happy that you have all of those pictures someday!!


looks like you guys are having a fun fall....we have that same tub...the bubble bath picture makes me laugh...so cute!!!!
