The Sixth Sense

Hey Little Buddy!

It's been half a year, and I have a sneaking suspicion that things aren't slowing down any time soon. You certainly aren't as you are becoming quite the little mover. You've got the "push-up" nailed down and have started pulling those knees in and rocking back and forth. It seems that you just can't wait to keep up with your big brother and snag his toys.

Speaking of W--no one lights up your face quite like he does. You give genuine baby belly laughs for him all the time as you watch him play around the room, and when he stops to talk to you, you give such a great giggle that I can't help but stop what I'm doing to watch you two interact. 

You roll across the room and "crawfish" around, leaving me little time to quickly run here or there around the house. You are fast, little man!

I almost don't want to type it, but you are giving us a bit more sleep at night, and we love it! Thank you, thank you, thank you! 

You've mostly mastered this sitting up business, but you would much prefer wandering around on your belly or back. We'll give it time.

While you were all about "solids" when we started, you have recently turned your nose up to everything which is a bit stressful, but we are pretty sure you will come around. I'm doing my best to make your food, so perhaps you just need more variety more quickly. Perhaps the pesky top teeth you are trying to pop through your gums are just too distracting. Regardless, we will keep plugging along.

You had your second major car trip to LA and let us know that being stuck in the car seat wasn't on your plan. We will blame that again on teething.  Seeing our friends and introducing you to the people that are as family to us kept us going through the tears.

I think you are going to do big things this next month or two so I am just soaking in your baby-hood as long as you'll let me, little blue-eyed boy! You keep us guessing, keep us smiling, keep us loving. I think that's just how you are programmed, and we are so blessed to call you ours.
