My dear sweet Gemma,
You are 6 months, 1/2 a year today! Where does the time go? You are growing so very fast, and each day is so exciting. I can't tell you how much I am enjoying watching you grow and become a beautiful and active little girl.
You certainly don't stay in one place very long anymore. Between rolling and scooting on your belly you move from one side of the room to the other so quickly! You move to get a toy or to even go pet puppy Payton. And Dominic, oh how he loves you! The feeling is mutual and despite his constant tugs and pokes you giggle at everything he does. In fact often I go to yell at him for being too rough only to see you smiling from ear to ear. You are also treated to his songs constantly, most are Dominic originals. Dominic's favorite game to play is "Gemma Monster" where we chase him around the house. You reach your arms out as far as you can hoping to catch him, and when you do, you laugh with delight.
You are quite a talker too! You always have so much to say, especially to daddy. Even if he is on the other side of the room, you don't hesitate to strike up a coversation with him. Your favorite time to vocalize though is when we are in Church for Mass or adoration.
You love being outside also and in general are so content. You have been so easy on mommy with sleep, nursing and growing (unlike your brother). Thank you for 6 wonderful months and I am excited for every day to come! We love you and thank God every day that he trusted us with your precious soul.
