Six Months

Baby boy, where has the time gone?? It feels like just yesterday that you were the tiniest of little guys hooked up to a ventilator in the NICU. Now you are our sweet smiling, giggling, squirmy little man that wants so desperately to be on the move. You are definitely not content with sitting still and once you start to crawl, I have a feeling that you are going to keep mommy and daddy on our toes. Speaking of toes- your new found fascination has been your pudgy little feet. You have been staring at them for some time now, wondering how you were going to reach those sweet toes at the end of your chunky legs. Well this is the month. You cannot. Get. Enough. of them. and you constantly sound like you are doing baby crunches to reach them. Another favorite from this month- eating real food. And lots of it. Squash, sweet potatoes, green beans, pears, peaches, bananas and rice cereal- we haven't found anything you don't eagerly scarf down. I have a feeling this may be a preview of your teenage years. You have become a champ at rolling from your front to your back and have just started to roll back to your front. You love to laugh and we will do just about anything to make you laugh. Sometimes you just burst into giggles when you look at daddy. It's OK- a lot of people do that. You love to bounce in your jumper and throw all of the toys off your play mat. You are mesmerized by music of all kinds- even mommy and daddy's singing. You really do have the sweetest of temperaments and are content just to look around the room and take it all in. Yes, this has certainly been a big month for you, little man. Here are some of our favorite highlights:

You went to your first Clemson basketball game and your face in this pic pretty much sums it up.

You passed out in daddy's arms once he took you out of the loud arena.

You woke up just in time for your first experience in downtown Clemson.

We have been spending more and more time outside as it warms up. It has literally been cold for your entire life and you seem to really like the much-needed sunshine.

You celebrated your first St. Patrick's Day.

And went to the gym for the first time with mommy. Can we say cankles?

You are so happy to see us each and every time you wake up- whether it's in the morning or from a nap. This was taken on your actual six month birthday before I left for work. I am so incredibly thankful that I only have to work out of the house two days a week. We have a very sweet nanny that comes over on Tuesdays and Wednesdays are days with daddy.

Here is an example what you get to do on your days with daddy...

We participated in the baby dedication service at our hometown church- the same church where mommy and daddy got married.

Here is a pic we snapped while trying to keep you entertained at your six month doctor's appointment. You are now 17lbs 1 oz and 26in long! This puts you in the 50% for both weight and height, but sweet boy, you are anything but average to us.

This seems a lifetime away from where you started six short months ago...

Yes, baby boy, we love you so incredibly much and are so blessed that we get to be your parents. We are going to soak up these precious months as they are starting to fly by faster and faster.
