Six Month Update

Dear Reed,

Happy six months!!  It is SO hard for me to believe that you have been with us for 1/2 of a year!  It just seems like yesterday that you arrived and now you are already such a big boy.

You were 16 pounds and 4 oz at your appointment.  You are 27 inches tall.  You had your shots and were such a big boy!  You didn't even cry.  You are still wearing your 3-6 months clothes and are in size 2 diapers.

You are ready to crawl any day now.  You do some sort of downward dog face plant crawl so far.  You get up on your knees and rock back and forth all day long.  You have started sitting up independently and somehow get around the room by sitting up, laying on your belly, turning over and then sitting up again!  It is comical to watch.

You are still so happy all of the time.  Your smile is addicting and your laugh!  Your laugh is adorable. I love to tickle you just to hear your laugh.  Your little dimples light up a room.

We've started solid foods and so far you seem to like most things we've given you.  It has helped a little bit with your sleeping habits but you are still waking up at least once and sometimes twice a night to eat.  It's a little frustrating to me because I'm not sure what to do to help you sleep better.  But so far you  go back to bed easily so I can't complain.  You typically take a short nap in the morning and then a 2 hour nap in the afternoon.

You always seem to only have 1 sock on.  Often I'll look down and you have one sock on and one in your mouth.  Other times I can't find the second sock anywhere.  I don't know what you do with them!

You love to play with toys but your favorite thing is cords.  You immediately work your way over to the side of the room where the cords are as soon as we put you down.  

We love love love being your Mama and Daddy.  You are so sweet and you just make us happy!  We can't wait to see what the next six months brings.  I just hope it goes a little slower than the first!

Mama & Daddy
