6 months

I don’t even understand how its been half of a year already!  Fastest 6 months ever.  I love this little baby.  I could look at him all day (not night!).  He has the cutest face and smiles instantly.  He is in love with his siblings and loves being right in the mix with them.  He likes to eat all the baby foods but is sometimes fussy during eating.  I haven’t figured out if that means he wants it come faster or if he’s done.  I have tried giving him puffs and graham crackers.  He does pretty well but gets frustrated easily with the chewing process.  He is getting better with the sippy cup.  We still breast feed about 6 times in 24 hours.  And in the last month he has really taken a turn for the worse at night.  He is starting to wake up more frequently.  I have tried not to cave in and just feed him so he’ll go back to sleep.  But I have not been perfect at it because I know that if I just nurse him he will fall back asleep and then I won’t have to listen to crying.  So anyway…he has been spoiled a few times.  But I am trying to be strong!!  He is starting to scoot backwards a little bit on his belly and he is super fast and pivoting in a circle now.  We are working on sitting up.  He is no where near perfect, but with the boppy propped around him he can last for 5-10 minutes.  He is getting so big.  He grabs at everything and is getting quite hard to hold because he is always reaching for something.  He loves when I sing in his ear and is starting to like looking through books.  He is now sleeping unswaddled which is a big deal because he loved it so much!  We took him get his pictures taken and he was the smiliest baby ever.  Our photographer said they usually get 20 good shots of babies…he had 56.  He is just that cute and I sure love him.

  1. Oh man! I just love these!!! I have also been so bad about being consistent with sleep training. It’s hard to listen to crying when you’re so tired and can easily stop it and be back asleep in 5 minutes. Hurray for no swaddle, that’s always a tough hurdle.

  2. He really is the cutest and happiest baby around. All dome on that kid! Stop growing up so fast little Luker Tooder!
