Holy cow, I have a six month old!

My little man,

Holy cow! You are six months old. Six!! I cannot believe this time has gone so fast. Every day you are changing and learning and growing. It makes mommy's heart smile to see you try new things and understand the world around you.

My baby bear is not so little anymore. You weigh more than 20 lbs! You are wearing nine month clothes, but not for long. You rock your tiny chuck taylors and you have a smile on your face almost every minute you are awake.

The last two weeks have been pretty exciting. You are saying mamamamama, squealing with delight, and boy do you giggle at everything. You just started army crawling, well, backwards any way. You reach for toys and you can sit up for a bit!

Fresh baby food!
Avocado was your first food. You were not impressed. You even shuddered and made the funniest face when it was on your tongue. This morning you tried bananas and it was equally as funny. Mommy enjoys making your baby food and knowing how safe the ingredients are. It makes her happy to take care of her little man.

Yesterday, you grabbed my pump tubing and pulled really hard. Mommy's pump is now a toy. It won't be long and I will be explaining what a pump is and I am not quite sure how to approach the subject yet, but I know it will be okay. You are such a smart boy and you will know it helps mommy be with you.

I cannot believe your life is going so quickly. It makes me not want to leave your side for even a single minute. Not. One. Minute.

I love you to the moon and back, my sweet baby bear.


My little man!

Wow! I can't believe he is that old! Such a cute little man. Also very jealous that he is saying mama! I can't get a peep out of Abilene.

Thanks, Amber! I talk so much, I don't think B had a choice!
