In an attempt to refresh my mood I decided to try a homemade face mask meant to energize your skin. The original recipe seemed to make a slumber party size quantity so I cut it in half and still have enough for two more masks {one for me, one for Jordan?}. Here's exactly what I did:

2 T. ground coffee
2T. cocoa powder
1 T. Lemon juice (they said use honey if you have dry skin, lj if you have oily skin)
2 T. milk (I used 2% bc it's what I had, they said use more or less depending on how thick you like your mask)

I applied it, let it dry (about 20 min) and then with a hot washcloth wiped it all off...It was lovely, made my skin kind of glow and felt smoother, thanks to the grit in the coffee grounds...I give it two thumbs up!

6 months stats

*This month I weigh 17 pounds and am 27 in. (50% for weight, 75% for height)
*I am sprouting one bottom tooth, that is causing me to be a hot mess
* Took my first swim and was less than thrilled about it
*I love to grab everything, especially Charlie's pigtails
*My mama forgot my half-birthday. Thanks, Grammie, for reminding her ;)
*I also took a trip to the Phx Zoo and a Rockies Spring Training game
*I am sitting up, with a little help

Poor guy has had a few really rough days, trying to push that first tooth through...he has taken teething so much harder than Charlie ever did, which reminds me that no two babes are the same! LOVE ME SOME TEDDY!
