Piera turned six-months today. She had an appointment with her pediatrician and weighed in at 19 lbs and 6 oz and 27 inches long—95th percentile. She barely flinched during her immunization shots. It's hard to believe this tough cookie was once a newborn.
Happy six-month birthday, Piera Lily (and nice ruffled leggings)!

In honor of Father's Day, here are some pictures of Piera's daddy, Michael, when he was small.
These are some things you may not know about Michael: He excelled at baseball as a child, especially pitching. He once studied acting with Mike Nichols. His middle name is Raymond, after his own father. He hates dressing up, especially wearing ties. He once worked for Lehman Brothers. Although he was born and raised in Vermont, the first time he tried downhill skiing (snowboarding) was with Mommy in 2007. He drives a black Jeep Liberty. Countries he has visited include Costa Rica, Italy and the Dominican Republic. He liked the book, The Unbearable Lightness of Being and he thinks The Godfather is an excellent movie. He's the youngest of four kids and has so many cousins that Mommy dare not try and count them up here. He is a very good dancer. He is good at a lot of things but refuses to brag.

Because Mommy slacked on taking pictures this week, there's not much new to report. Here's a photo of Mama when she was Piera's age and of Auntie Dana around the same age. As you will notice, there's a strong resemblance. Piera definitely has her mother and aunt beat in the chubbiness department though.

Lately, Piera has discovered the joys of the swingset. We are lucky to live near two playgrounds that have baby swings. Unfortunately, one park gets invaded by big kids after school. Yesterday Mama saw two girls, both taller than her, hanging from the same swing that Piera is in. Reader service announcement: If you're old enough to read this, stay off the baby swings!

Piera is an Exersaucer enthusiast. Until this past weekend, this meant she could play on one at Molly's or when visiting Oma in Vermont. But on a chance trip to Babies R Us this weekend, Piera could not contain her excitement when Mama wheeled her down the Exersaucer aisle. Guilt overcame Mommy. The Exersaucer jumped into the shopping cart.
End of story.
