Allie Jane Reaches 6-Month Milestone

This little munchkin has an announcement to make. She is six months old! Allie Jane Webster was born on her due date--April 11th, 2015--to John Webster and Alyssa (Bates) Webster.

Alyssa delivered at a birthing center. Her labor was so quick that grandparents Gil and Kelly Bates, who left their home in Tennessee as soon as they found out Allie was on her way, barely had time to make it to the local airport before receiving a picture of their newest grandchild.

  1. When did people start marking every few months?! When the baby is one year old then you mark it with a birthday. Not even 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, whatever. A year.

    2. This is pretty standard with families and has been for decades. It helps to mark milestones as far as development and it is far easier than saying 12 weeks, 24 weeks or 36 weeks old.

    3. I did for all for of my children and they range from 26 to 33. Quite common actually.

    4. I agree that counting so many months as a milestone has gone too far. In China they would think we are crazy for counting months. They say the baby is zero until one year old. Then they have a big birthday party and give the child a red egg for long life.

  2. Can you post more pictures of Bates? I want to know them really well. Especially their kiddos. Right now i just knew Bates' grandchildren. Not the other Bates. Thanks

  3. I happen to think it's really nice to see the monthly photos. I always enjoyed taking lots of photos of my sons when they were growing up. I recently went to a first birthday party where they made a nice photo collage showing each month leading up to the first birthday. It's just amazing how these little ones change so much during the first year. That time is precious. Allie is really cute!

  4. She's adorable & as far as "marking" the babies milestones, I say go for it. There are so many changes month to month as an infant. Thanks for posting Lily & Ellie.
