Happy half-birthday! I can't believe it has already been half a year. I know I say each month that the time is just flying by, but it really is!
You are such a happy boy! I love when I pick you up at the end of the day and you are just all smiles and your cute squeaky laugh. It is the best sound!
You are now officially sitting up. You started sitting up a bit more about 2 weeks ago while leaning on your hands, but last week, you decided you were just going to sit straight up and didn't need the support any more. You also are a pro at rolling both ways (front to back took awhile for you!) and you also love to spin yourself in circles. Your daycare teacher tell me that they think you are going to crawl very soon!
You do not have any teeth yet, but I expect to see some soon. You have begun to put EVERYTHING into your mouth lately. We have had to be really on top of your sister to make sure she doesn't hand you anything as you just immediately put anything you get into your mouth. We have started some foods and so far you have loved everything. You are getting oatmeal almost every day. We have also done homemade applesauce that Daddy makes for you as well as homemade sweet potatoes. You have gobbled it all up! I don't think you will be a picky eater!
Your sleep is still a bit all over the place. You wake anywhere from 1-3 times at night. There were a couple weeks this past month where you would wake up and then be WIDE AWAKE and not want to go back down. It would take us 2+ hours to get you back to sleep! Luckily, that has passed and hopefully does not come back! The past week you seem to wake between 1-2 and then again between 3-5am and then up around 6:30-7 for the day. We are going to start working on stretching that first wake up to be not until 3 and then only wake up again at morning.
You already had your well appointment and are coming in at 17.5 pounds! My little chunky monkey! You are also 26.5 inches, though you were very squiggly when they tried to take the measurement, so they don't think it was quite right. We will see what our measurement says when we measure you tomorrow on our wall :)
I love you my little dinosaur! You bring me such joy and happiness! I love watching you interact with the world and begin to figure things out. This week we handed you a tambourine and you thought it was the best thing ever! You also LOVE your sister and she LOVES you! And I love watching you both together. It is so sweet.
I love you always and forever!
