6 months.

Half a year already. Geez!

Well, Betti is working on sitting up now and almost has the hang of it. She first attempted it at the park the other day. She has since gotten much better.

This is a full two months before her sister was sitting up. Does that mean she'll walk sooner? Oh boy.

Despite only rolling from her back to her belly and only on her left side, Betti is trying her hardest to scoot and crawl by pulling her knees up under her body.

She is also constantly looking for Marion and wants to be with her. I wonder how long that will last?

In other news, I'm going to attempt to feed her solids any day now. I'm a little hesitant for several reasons:

1. I enjoy making baby food but that takes time and money. It will be cheaper than purchasing baby food in Switzerland, but it will still be more out of my pocket at the grocery store.

2. The mess. Oh the mess. At the beginning it isn't so bad but it goes downhill pretty fast from there.

3. The diapers that result from eating solid foods are nasty. Ugh, Brian may be on diaper duty soon.

Despite my hesitation, Betti is ready. So full steam ahead!

And to celebrate the half year mark, another comparison.
Betti at six months.

Marion at six months.

What a wonderfully beautiful little girl!!!! Can't believe how much Betti and Marion look like each other.

She is so adorable. I love her smiles. Her smiling face just makes me laugh. What a cutie pie.

Marion and Betti are the happiest
2 little angels ever.

Good Job Megs & Brian...

Love and Hugs to all,

Wow, how precious! I was just asking Shannon and Amy the other night if they'd seen her pics lately (Amy had). She sure is growing fast. And they most definitely look like sisters. Betti looks a little bigger, maybe that's why she's doing stuff sooner. That and she has Marion as a role model.

Keep up the good work!

It was great to meet you yesterday as well. The girls are even more adorable in person. I saw you won some money on the pigs and then we lost sight of you. I hope you had a great day - we did!
