6 whole months? How is that even possible?
Probably the biggest thing this month is that you are full fledged eating baby food and you LOVE it! We’ve even made some progress with the green veggies and you do a pretty good job of eating them without making too many yucky faces. You’re drinking 4 bottles a day and eating 2 meals of food. I think you’ve pretty much figured out what the high chair means. As soon as we put you in it and grab the jar of baby food and spoon, you start kicking your feet and making all kinds of sounds. It’s so cute to watch how excited you get about meals! Sometimes we mix your food with some multi-grain cereal, sometimes its just the food. I’m not gonna lie…it’s kinda nice that you’re no longer drinking as much formula…baby food is much cheaper than your liquid gold formula!
You are a crazy sleeper! You flip and flop all over your bed. We never know where we’ll find you when we go to get you in the mornings or after a nap. I think my favorite time of day with you is in the evenings after you’re out of the bathtub, all pj’d up, and ready for bed. We gather all the bedtime essentials (nu-nu, monkey lovie, and blanket), rock, and sing songs until you’re sound asleep; I kiss you goodnight and you’re down for the night. It’s such a sweet, calm, and peaceful way to end the day and I love it probably more than anything.
We’ve also graduated from the infant bathtub to a bath seat in the big bathtub. I don’t know that its your favorite thing in the world, but it sure it easier than having you almost push yourself out of the other one. Hopefully as you get stronger in the next few weeks and months, you’ll enjoy the bath seat.
you started making this face last week…we think it’s so you can chew on your bottom teeth. I know we’ll all be relieved when those bottom teeth finally cut through.
You are rolling all over the place now! It’s adorable! You’ve become so much more observant and interactive in the last month. And you’re definitely starting to realize when you’re being held by someone you don’t see very often. You get a panicked look on your face and frantically start looking around for me or your daddy. I know its sad for our family that doesn’t see you very often, but it makes me feel good…haha! You also get really upset if we put you down and walk away from you…spoiled rotten!
You love riding in your strollers. When we’re out shopping, you love to ride in the stroller and look all around at the lights and colors and when we go walking, you love relaxing in the jogging stroller. No more being stuck in that carseat everywhere we go!
We discovered the other night that you hate the vacuum cleaner. As soon as I turned it on, you stuck out your bottom lip and started crying…I guess the noise was scary to you. I tried to finish vacuuming the living a few more times and each time got the same response. Darn…I’ll have to finish vacuuming later! You’ve also started screaming every time we put you in the carseat. You don’t cry for more than a few seconds, but you definitely let us know that you are not happy with being placed in there. I think we might be moving you out of the infant carseat/carrier in the next couple of days. The only downside is that there’s no way to attach toys for you to play with on the big carseat and if you fall asleep in the car, we have to wake you up to get you out. (You pretty much wake up as soon as the doors automatically unlock when we park the car though.)
you and daddy looking too cool in your sunglasses!
Parker, you are such a blessing to your daddy and me. You have completely changed our lives and our family forever and we couldn’t be more thankful for you. I love you so much!
