6 months!

Our life has been all sorts of crazy lately. Our quiet Easter got turned upside down, going through lots of big changes and having to make big decisions doesn’t leave much time for blogging! I don’t want to miss Alex’s 6 month post though!!

I can hardly believe that we have survived 6 months.

We had lots more firsts this month. Your first St. Patrick’s day… your first Easter… and your first cold.

That was one nasty cold. It took our whole family out for 2 weeks. You were a miserable congested baby, Daddy and I took turns sleeping with you in the recliner because that’s the only way you could breathe.

You tried food for the first time this month! You’re still not quite ready for real solid foods but do you ever love your baby safe feeder! You’ve had blackberries, pears, and peas in it so far and you really suck that thing dry. It’s nice to be able to give it to you at dinner and sometimes be able to eat as a family.

You’re still enormous. weighing in at almost 20 lbs and 27 inches.

You’re not sitting up yet but you are *very* close to crawling. You go backwards like a pro and are getting up on your knees and rocking. If you would just let mommy put you down for a while so you could practice you would be moving in no time!

Your siblings remain your favourite people. It doesn’t matter how mad you are, Mary can almost always get a smile.

Your other favourite things are your soother (which makes Mommy SO happy! I always wanted one of my babies to take one and you really loves yours), your wooden teething moose, and your jumperoo.

And of course it goes without saying that these things are all second to being in someone’s arms. That always comes first.

Bath time is sloooowly getting better. If you are in a really good mood, have a full belly, and have your sister near by we can usually get a five minute bath without screaming. That’s progress!!!
