Balancing out the parental units

Kelli and I care for Natali in very different ways. Much like our personalities differ, so does the way we react to situations.

With me, I use humor and noises to calm Natali down. Kelli is more laid back and uses a cuddling and calm nature. Both work, and we can't switch methods.

I learned a while ago that if I sing/make noises while putting Natali in a car seat, changing a diaper or anything else that sometimes annoys her....it distracts her enough to remain calm or calm down. I can't hold a tune for the life of me, however all my silly noises makes her laugh, smile or just stare long enough to do what I need to do.

We have almost reached six months. I'm looking back at photos and post and am worried that I missed something. Six months? Really?

When I place Natali in her swing her feet hang off the edge. I swear it was just last week I had to place a blanket under her but so she could be strapped in securely.

Solid food is going well. Of course solid food equals solid poops. Yay?

Natali has been really vocal lately. I swear I hear "Da-Da"...Kelli thinks I am wanting to hear it. Maybe I am.

Natali talks the most when she stands up. She really enjoys holding my hand (or hands) and standing up. I can tell she is trying to balance. There are times where she is putting very little pressure on me. Maybe she will just blow away crawling? Time will tell.
