The Baby Is Six Months

Six months. Wow. 

We celebrated your half birthday on November 14. Our fifth month together was just tons of fun and filled with giggles! You are making all sorts of happy noises these days and we love it. 

In your fifth month, you mastered flipping from your belly to your back, and BAM -- sleeping through the night happened. I fully attribute that amazing feat to you not getting "stuck" on your belly in your crib. You still are doing a bath from 6:15-6:30 most nights, a bottle and snuggles from 6:30-7, and now sleeping from 7 until 6:45-7:00am. Hallelujah.

You are a lot more interested in Drake these days, and the feeling is quite mutual.


You love having things in your mouth -- a rattle, Sophie, your hands, your toes.

Playtime in the gym is still a favorite way to pass time, and you are sitting up better and better on your own this month!

We noticed you getting really interested in what we were eating and drinking. At my mom's prompting, I even gave you a sip of water ... you loved it!

You enjoy being read to. :) This is important to us, for you to love books.

Just such a happy baby, that gummy grin is one I'll never tire seeing.

You had your first Halloween and dressed as Dorothy. Daddy surprised you with your own little Toto.

You had a wonderful visit from your Great Aunt, who loves you very much.

And you had your first hike! We went as a family to Crowder's Mountain one Saturday.


Your fifth month was your last one of being on milk alone. Big changes ahead starting in month six! You are almost 17 pounds, you are wearing a good amount of size 6 month clothes now, and you're in size 2 diapers (and size 3 overnight diapers).

Look at you, growing growing growing!
Love you, dear baby.
