June is 6 Months!

November 10, 2010

It’s impossible to believe, but Flora June Blair turned 6 months old on Sunday.

I snapped these photos of her this morning. Isn’t she a sweetheart?

Things I know about June at 6 months old:
- She likes to delicately place her hand over her eye while she nurses. It’s so sweet! I have yet to get a photo of it, because I’m always nursing when it happens. : )
- She loves to stand up. With assistance, of course. She really enjoys using her legs.
- She suddenly dislikes baths. Currently, they are cry-filled and consequently, super short.
- She loves to eat! If it’s pureed, she’ll try it and probably love it.
- She lights up anytime she catches her dad’s eye.
- She’s happiest in the afternoons when all the kids are home and she’s getting tons of attention.

I love these little crocheted maryjane slippers. They are hand-me-downs from Betty, originally from Target. The dress is from Target too — purchased in the spring in anticipation of June’s arrival.

She is gorgeous! I can’t believe she’s already 6 months – hasn’t it flown by?

Love the slippers!

she is perfect. I am impressed that those slippers are from Target! They look like someone handmade them or you got them on Etsy. Love that first picture.

Very pretty! I have a picture of my daughter at about 5 months in that same dress from last spring. I LOVED that dress!! Have to share a picture of her in it. :)

What a doll! Its ridiculous how fast it goes, huh! Mine recently turned 6 months too and I can see infancy slipping away…

My 3 year old is convinced that we are going to have a new baby soon and that it will be a girl named Eva. As I was reading this post he climbed up on my lap and said, “Oh, it looks like Eva, Mom. Except Eva will have butterflies on her dress.”

As far as I know there is no baby on the way, but he can’t stop talking about her!

What a beautiful, sweet baby… Happy Birthday to June! Time goes by so fast. My youngest, my “baby” will be 6 years old this week and while we are enjoying seeing all of our kids grow up into lovely young people, I really miss the baby days.

Oh my gosh she is darling! Our first little one just turned one week old yesterday. I can’t wait til he’s as big and playful as June!

21 Erin November 10, 2010 at 1:36 pm

Isn’t that the truth? I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seriously debated how I could both nurse and take a picture of whatever cute thing my baby is doing at the same time. It’s silly how many times I have thought about this–because, of course, there’s no good way for this to happen.

Smart shopping to buy that dress ahead of time–I would not have guessed Target, but something much more boutique-y. It must still be quite warm in Colorado; here in Minnesota, the babe’s in tights on Sundays.

Happy six months to June! Love those cheeks.

Oh she is precious! Just perfect. My youngest sucks her two middle fingers a well, only on her left hand instead. The older girls call them her “sleepy fingers.”

I love June.

25 Rachel November 10, 2010 at 2:22 pm

Oh my twin girls each have that dress! But they outgrew them a few months ago. Shame… they only got to wear them a handful of times. :)

I’ve taken some pics with my iPhone of Wren nursing. They’re a bit on the blurry side, but I treasure them. Happy half-year, June! BTW, those booties? A-door-bell!

we are expecting our little girl in March – and I’m so excited!!

I just love how much your children all look like siblings…AND how they look like the perfect harmony of you and your hubby. My sisters and I look ridiculously different – often people don’t believe we are related at all!!

Gabby,
She is perfect. My little one just turned 3 months and was a little squirt at birth like June. I am looking at June and wondering how she might look with a little more meat on her at 6 months. She is lovely.

That picture with her fingers in her mouth is simply adorable. I love those eyes and those cheeks. I loved the story about her covering her eye while nursing. Macy reaches up and covers my mouth. I just love it and want it on picture, but haven’t caught it yet.

Your daughter is SO precious, and you posting these sweet finger-slurping photos is giving me serious baby nostalgia. My son’s finger-sucking was adorable back in the day (six years ago); the current and persistent booger-digging-and-eating, well, not so much… ;-) Happy 6-months birthday, Baby June!

I love the finger sucking one! My kids both sucked those fingers as well! One stopped, the other one is…well….8 now and still does it. She has a whole system down and has to rub her eyelashes with her index finger :) Enjoy her while she’s young!

Adorable. My Ruby also used to cover her eyes whilst nursing. She would place the back of her hand over both eyes, and when she was just tired she’d do the same, and pop two fingers in her mouth. The cutest thing.
