6 months old and just in time for Christmas

Well, we did it. We survived the first 6 months of parenthood and Whitney survived under our care. What an accomplishment considering Andy and I knew nothing about child care. I think she'll keep us, she may want to trade us in for Grandma, but she is stuck with us.
Whitney is 6 months old, WOW.

We had a great Christmas, it was fun and relaxing. Whitney was more concerned and interested with eating the paper than any of her toys, but that is to be expected. She did get lots of great stuff though from friends, neighbors and family. Thank you all so much!!! Lots of new toys that flash and make noise and utterly annoy the crap out of her parents, but she seems to enjoy them so I suppose we'll keep them. We even had to put away the swing, bumbo and playmat since she is now more interested in the big kid toys and not to mention just make room.
We were able to skype with my parents, Andy's Mom and sister and his Grandma. It was great to see them and have them watch her open her gifts. She is sitting so good now we just plopped the computer on the floor in front of her and we were set.

We also had her 6 month check up today and the pediatrician had all good things to say about her. She is healthy and looking perfect, he loves her! She is now 16 lbs 4 oz and 25.5 inches long. She is growing proportionately and he says he has no concerns. It is always so great for him and his nurses to see her. They all know about her rough start and saw her when she was so fragile, and even when she was still connected to the monitor, so they know of her great strides. We are just so blessed to have her in our life.
Rather than rambling, I'm just going to let the pictures do the talking (since I know that's what everyone is interested in anyway!)
