Miss Eisley,

You are officially a half a year old...that's just plain crazy to me.  Being born a whole month early, I kind of still look at you as a 5 month old.  You're small, not as steady at sitting, and you just mastered your roll from stomach to back, but the fact of the matter is you are still 6 months old.  Grandma Tiede is 100% certain you are the sweetest most perfect baby she's ever seen. That might be because she's around your crazy brother and sister all day as well, but really you are a sweet little piece of heaven.

A couple of weeks ago you started waking up around 5:30 for your morning feeding.  That has been a bit hard on me, but just these past few days you started sleeping back in until 7.  I'm completely ok with that if you want to keep it up.

You've really taken to eating solid foods.  At first you would suck on the spoon like a bottle to swallow the food, but have taken off since then.  It's been fun watching you discover the new world of flavor!

In the past two weeks as well you dethroned as the youngest grandchild/niece.  You have two brand new girl cousins which we couldn't be more thrilled about.  It makes me happy for you to have cousins that will be close in age.

Besides eating solids and rolling over, the big thing that happened this month was your trip up to Primary Children's Hospital.  When you were born you had a few signs that you possibly could Cystic Fibrosis.  They did the Newborn screening, and that came back fine, but the only way they can really eliminate the suspicion is by doing a chloride sweat test at 6 months.  So they wrapped you up like a baked potato and let you sweat it out for a half an hour.
You barely made a peep the entire time we were up there, and were so patient with the nurses as they splinted your arms and wrapped you.  We haven't heard back on the test results, but I figure no news is good news.

Eisley, you continue to bring joy beyond measure to our family.  I hope you know and feel all the love that is had for you!
