6 Months

Happy Half Birthday, Parker!

I love starting my days with your big smile and gurgles.  I know I can always munch on your big belly or cheekies, and you'll let out that loud, silly laugh.  You brighten this house and every person in it.   

At 6 months you are...

Sitting up independently for 5-10 minutes at a time-- still a little wobbly.

Eating solids!  You are an excellent eater!!!  Seriously, Lucy was so difficult, but you've really enjoyed everything you've tried so far.  Your first food was butternut squash.  We're abiding by the 2-day Wait Rule for introducing new foods.  We haven't had any poop issues yet, and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we'll avoid them completely. 

Ehhhh, what is this??

No longer tooth-less.  (Unfortunately, I haven't been able to get a good picture of the toofer.)

Grabbing EVERYTHING within reach.  OMG.

Having so much fun with Sissy.  You light up whenever you see her.  When I need to make breakfast or lunch, I can put you two in your high chairs facing each other, and she'll show you every toy on the table.

Still drooling like whoa

A can-can dancer in training.  When you get excited or hear singing, you kick one leg up in the air over and over again.

Lovin' yo feet.

Awake for 1.5-2 hours at time and taking 3 naps a day.  Nap length seems to be improving-- usually 1-1.5 hours long.  (Which is just heavenly after months of 30-45 minute naps.)

Sleeping 6:30 pm - 7:00 am, and waking 1-2 times in between.  There was one week that you slept through the night 7 nights in a row...not sure why that was so short lived.

Officially sharing a room with sissy!  It's been a blessing and a nightmare, which I will elaborate on in a separate post...

Approximately 22 lbs.  (not sure on length...)

Still exclusively breastfed.  (Almost had to bust out the formula due to a pumping fail, but we managed to scrape by.)


We love watching you grow, honey.  We are so excited for the next 6 months!  (Momma and Daddy are already taking bets on when you'll start walking.)  You have been so easy, and I am so thankful for that.
