[belated] six months old!

You’re six months old!

Ok, you’ve been six months old for ten days now BUT this momma has been a super-slacker so here we are. You’re a baby. You don’t care.
You are a whopping 17lbs! We just started putting you in nine-month clothes, but the twelve-month clothes are on standby. I have a feeling this chunky monkey stuff will be a thing of the past as soon as you start crawling…
…which you are desperate to do! You’re starting to notice // get into everything, and if it’s out of your reach, your little world falls apart. You haven’t figured out how to coordinate your arms into crawling, so you kind of just kick and roll at whatever it is you want. Sometimes you’ll try to move your little chunky body forward, which usually results in a face-plant.

You’ve been sleeping in your big boy bed (the pack and play) for a while, and now you’re officially eating at the table in your big boy booster seat! We used to feed you in the bouncer, but felt like it was time to take the next step and you’re all about it. You’re SO CLOSE to sitting up on your own! Hoping the support from the booster seat helps you reach this milestone.

You eat baby food and cereal three times a day, and we’ve started throwing in some puffs as well. You really like them, but prefer that momma or daddy feed them to you  because you haven’t quite figured out the pincher grip. When you try to pick them up, you get a bunch in your fist and can’t figure out how to get them out of your fist and into your mouth. They usually just end up all over the floor, but that’s okay. Molly is your new BFF, and lurks around while you eat to lick up whatever you drop =]  We gave you a real banana for the first time, too, and you weren’t sure what to think! It kept slipping out of your little hands, so it made you pretty angry after a while. I can’t wait to give you more new foods!

We’ve had the jumperoo for a while now, but you had a breakthrough at the end of this month– you can JUMP in the JUMPEROO! Until now, you kind of just sat in it and stared at all the toys. And then, out of nowhere, you discovered that you can jump and bounce and be a wild man in there! It’s so awesome watching you grow and learn new things.

All dressed up for Thanksgiving!

This month marked your first Thanksgiving, but it didn’t phase you in the least. You slept through the festivities at Aunt Nickkey’s house, and played in your walker at Gigi’s. It will be so awesome next year when you can sit at the table with us and slobber on all the yummy food! So thankful for you, my sweet little man!

We’re only ten days in, but your seventh month is already full of baby milestones! I can’t believe how big you’re getting. As much as I loved those first few days of your little life, there is nothing better than watching you grow. Love you, Stinky Cheese!
