Faces of The Lil One: He's 6 Months Old!

Since we [even though I pushed his big little head out without any meds (still can't believe it! although I did think about it ;-)), it was nothing but a team effort] just gave birth to him a few weeks ago, we're not sure how he is 6 months old (on Dec. 11th)! It does not seem like that much time as gone by.

He is such a good baby! Skip over this part if you don't want some proud Mama moosh, feel free to skip straight to the plethora of pictures. Seriously, he is such a good boy. He is the happiest little guy. He is an energetic, smiler, who loves to be held, play on the floor (he lets us know when he's had enough=)), and adores watching his big bro - with wide eyes of admiration. He smiles anytime one of us walks in the room.

What's He Doin'? and 6 Month Picture Overload [we couldn't choose! gotta record all of the memories!]


He has the cutest little babbling conversations. bababa, dadadada, ahhhlalablaaa, ggggu, bbbuuu. It is sweet music to our ears! He passes toys back and forth from hand to hand. He smiles and laughs almost every time we sing to him (BabyBoy included!) and happily grabs for books as we read to him.

He is 17 pounds of chunky sweetness. He is wearing size 3 diapers and knows how to explode any diaper! Yes, you say, try a bigger size? Bigger (out the sides), smaller (out the top), right in the middle (pick one), he's very James Bond, he can find a way=). He's wearing clothes from 6 to 12 months!

He sleeps from about 7:30pm - 7:30 am and takes three naps during the day. He'll occasionally wake up early, but we either go in after a little bit and pat his back in his crib and quietly say, still time for your nap or night night, or just let him fall back asleep completely on his own. That's how we stretched his naps and night time sleep too.




He started solid food! He's had avocado, rice cereal, and sweet potato. We wait four days before starting a new food (we've gone a few more than that so far just because we've been out of town too =)) and we can't wait to add so many more foods to his little rep. He sits in his excersaucer while we eat most of our dinner but is sure to let us know when he has had enough play time and wants to be held and eat too!


He is such a mover. He loves to stand and is sitting like a champ. He tries to crawl and actually is on his way. He moves around his crib like nobody's business. We just put his bumpers back in because he bonks his little head on the bars or an arm pokes through. He gets up on his knees, we rock and say rock rock rock baby, and he starts rocking and smiling. He's taken some knees forward too!! Uh oh =) You cannot put him on any surface and even think about walking away, and changing diapers, oh, he rolls to his side and reaches and grabs for anything he sees. You have to get everything ready... and go, change it quick =).







I just love all of the little expressions in every one of these pics =)!



Happy 6 months sweet love!

He sounds like such a good and happy baby and you are truly blessed! I cannot believe that he is 6 months old already. The story about the diapers is very funny and that is great that he sleeps through the night. The pics of him in the chair with that adorable sweater are so cute. It looks like he will be crawling any day now!
