Happy 6 Month Birthday

Hello Sweet Bean,

Today you are 6 months old! You are rolling over from your belly to your back and have ALMOST rolled from your back to your belly (you're about 1/2 way there)! You are such a happy baby. Everyone who sees you comments on how you are always in a good mood. You are now eating solid foods and you are getting better and better at chewing and getting used to the spoon. Also, you can almost sit up on your own, this is so exciting! You are seriously LOVING the cats. You try and lunge at them when they pass by you and your squeal in delight when you touch them or look at them. Nittany will only let you look at him, but the Baby Kitty lets you pet her alot, even though you always come back with chunks of fur in your hand. This is something we will have to work on. We celebrated your 1st valentine's day by going to dinner. It was a fun time and of course you were loved and gushed at by everyone who saw you. You are such an awesome baby and we love being your parents. We love you more than words can express!

Love your mommy and daddy.

In My Daughters Eyes...

In my daughter's eyes I am a hero
I am strong and wise and I know no fear
But the truth is plain to see
She was sent to rescue me
I see who I wanna be
In my daughter's eyes

In my daughter's eyes everyone is equal
Darkness turns to light and the
world is at peace
This miracle God gave to me gives me
strength when I am weak
I find reason to believe
In my daughter's eyes

And when she wraps her hand
around my finger
Oh it puts a smile in my heart
Everything becomes a little clearer
I realize what life is all about

It's hangin' on when your heart
has had enough
It's giving more when you feel like giving up
I've seen the light
It's in my daughter's eyes

In my daughter's eyes I can see the future
A reflection of who I am and what will be
Though she'll grow and someday leave
Maybe raise a family
When I'm gone I hope you see how happy
she made me
For I'll be there
In my daughter's eyes

I loved this and it made me cry, so I am posting it.

Leilani tries cereal...

It was a momentous event in the Powers household today. Leilani tried rice cereal!! She kind of liked it...I think it was so fun for Chris and I to just watch her faces after each bite! Here are some pictures:
