My Sweet Boy,
You are 6 months old and I just can't wrap my head around that. You are at such a FUN age and we see more of your personality come out every single day. So far, you are a sweet boy who is soooo well behaved. You are interested in everything around you and since day one, you stop to listen to every word spoken to you. I get asked if you're a mama's boy. At times yes but to be honest, Daddy can make you melt the same way I can. It's very rare that you just want me over your daddy. Speaking of your daddy, you know this more than anyone but when you're older (and rebellious) I want you to look back at this and be reminded of just how amazing he is. I have never met a man like him. He is so hands on and will drop anything for us. When he walks in the door after a long day at work he does two things. He runs to the sink to wash his hands and then says your name to get your attention. The way his face lights up for you and the way you return the love and expressions... it turns me to mush every time. How on earth? What did I do to deserve this wonderful family? I ask myself that often.
You are my heart. And Daddy's too. Please, never forget that.
Even though this started about 2 months ago, this month you really got crazy with scooting and last night.... You crawled! It was only about 2 inches but YOU CRAWLED YOU CRAWLED!
You continue to sleep so well through the night. We struggled with this around 2-3 months of age but the hard work paid off.
You take 2-3 naps a day about 2 hours long.
You started rice cereal 2 weeks ago. It was not easy getting you to eat it but the last few days have been a different story. You open WIDE and you love it.
Your uncle got married on Sunday. It was beautiful but... it started at 7:20pm. We were nervous with how you would do since you normally go to sleep at 8:30. You surprised us all by sticking to your schedule. You fell asleep in your stroller at 8:30. We didn't leave til 10:30 and we walked into mima's house at 11:30 but you just slept through it all.
Sitting! You are improving although this is not something you like to do. You want everything around you so unless I hold a toy in the air for you, you throw yourself into every direction.
