Noah, I can't believe that you are already half a year old. These past six months have literally flown by and already I can catch glimpses of the little boy you will become.
You are still an incredibly happy baby, and it is such a joy to be around you. You are constantly laughing, smiling and cooing. This month you started "talking" and making the funniest noises. It was almost as if you were trying to have a conversation with us.
You are constantly moving and this month you learned to roll over and it is something that you love to do. You can roll tummy to back and back to tummy. We can no longer leave you on your activity mat without you moving somewhere else. You haven't learned how to crawl, but you wiggle your way to wherever you want to go. I wasn't quite ready for you to be so mobile so quickly. You still can't sit up yet, but we are working on it, and I'm not in any rush to have you grow up so fast.
|So we meet again...|
You also love to grab onto anything and everything that you can get your hands on. You found your feet this month, and they have become your new favorite play thing.
You are still nursing, and we did it. We made it six months. There is still no rhythm between us but I am so proud that we were able to make it this long.
We also started you on solids this months. Truth be told, we started last month, but I wasn't quite ready to have you grow up so quickly so we put it on hold until this month. You love to eat. LOVE. You open your mouth anxiously and get extremely upset when the food is all gone. What was supposed to be only a couple of spoonfuls, turned almost into full meals. You are now eating four meals of solids a day, and nursing four times a day.
We have worked our way through most fruits and vegetables and we are now working our way through all possible combinations. You hated, hated, avocados. It leaves me to wonder if you are truly my son.
You are still sleeping through the night and you no longer wake up crying. Every morning I hear you "talking" and "babbling" only to find you happy and smiling in your crib. While I am ecstatic at all of the sleep I have been able to get, part of me is missing out on our late night snuggles.
I look forward to watching you grow more and more everyday.
