Six Months

With all of the excitement of big brother turning two, we didn't forget about our sweet baby turning six months on the very same day!

You're 16.11lbs and 26in, which puts you in the 20th% for both weight and length- our sweet, petite little guy!

You started solid foods and typically eat three meals a day and still nurse five times. Since four months, you have refused anything resembling a bottle. Since I stay at home, it's not a huge issue, but it does make getting out of the house a challenge at times. You're a good sleeper- not as great as your brother, but we can't complain! You sleep from about 7pm-5:30am. On a good night, you'll fall back asleep on your own and make it until around 6:30am. Your morning nap is less than consistent as it really just depends on what we're doing that day or where we are. You take a great afternoon nap with your brother so I can usually get 2-3 hours to myself in the afternoon (!)

You're such a happy little guy and stay content most of the time. You are loud and like making your voice known to compete with your big, busy brother. You constantly have a gummy smile and giggle at us a lot. You can balance enough to sit up for a couple seconds. You're rolling across the floor and reaching for anything you can get in your mouth. You're still not the biggest fan of your car seat, but thankfully we don't have any more long trips planned anytime soon. One of your biggest milestones for this month is your first tooth! It broke through on Sept. 11 and the second one is on its way in too.

We have now entered into mommy's absolute favorite time of year! We have so many fun things planned for the rest of 2015 and are enjoying every minute with our little family of four- from pumpkin picking to fall festivals to everything Christmas, we are soaking up these cooler days of Fall!
 We went to the lake for Labor Day weekend and the first Clemson game and you got to ride on a boat for the very first time. You were less than thrilled.

 If you look closely, you can still see the wispy strands of your baby mullet.
 You got to meet your newest cousin, Hartley.
 You love your Opa!
You started your very first solid food! You ate squash just like your big brother did. While we started out with a baby led weaning approach to solids, we've been doing spoon-fed baby food for the last week or so. You are just a hungry boy and needed some more food in your stomach than you were getting with the finger foods that are more meant for playing at this point.
 You went to your first Friday night football game at Westminster, although, you slept through most all of it.
 You are our second little blue-eyed boy with blonde hair like your daddy.
 You are our happy, content, go with the flow little guy.

 Most days, you're up by 5:30 AM. After you eat, I get the sweetest snuggles and it makes the early mornings a million times better.

You started using the jumper and as long as we can keep your big brother from swinging it, you seem to like it.
Your giggles warm my heart.
