6 months

My sweet boy.  I can't believe you're already 6 months old!  It seems like we waited for so long to meet you and now the time is flying by.  I want it to slow down but I love each new stage you enter. I feel like I'm in a constant battle between bitter and sweet.  But you...you're sweet.  So sweet.  So happy, so smiley.  All.the.time. Especially in the middle of the night when you wake us up!  You cry, we come get you, you giggle and smile.  And we can't help but smile back.  How could we even be a little bit mad about holding and snuggling you?!?  Oh wait.  You don't like to snuggle.  You just want to stand and bounce.  Yep.  You stopped snuggling in January {insert sad face}.  When we hold you on our laps, you just want to stand and bounce and face the world....smiling and drooling the entire time. If you're not standing on someones lap, you're chewing on their finger(s) or hand.  You've been teething for awhile.  I don't see any teeth yet, but I think they're coming.  You're so curious about Coco the Pup.  And you smile when she licks your face and toes.  You think the word "poop" is hilarious.  You like to play on your belly for a little bit and then you're over it.  You started rolling over about 1 month ago.  You are the.most.ticklish.  Every time I change your clothes you crack up!  

A few of your favorite things:
Person: Daddy.
Activity: bouncing. and putting things in your mouth.
Time to sleep: never.  you're a major cat-napper.  and you still wake up 2(ish) times a night.
Place to sleep: in your swing.
Food: milk & cereal.
Noise to make: high pitched squealing sounds. especially in the middle of the night. 
Activity with Sister Bear: when she reads to you (melts Mommy's heart).

We're so thankful for you, little chicken!  We love you so much.  It's hard to remember what life was like before you were here.  You're still so fresh and new, but it seems like you've just always been here.  You're the perfect addition to our family!  Happy 1/2 birthday little monkey.

He is just the cutest little man!! I cannot believe 6 months has passed already....my goodness!! It's so hard, to want so badly for them to grow up in some ways so you know what they're trying to say to you, so you can see what their personalities are going to be like...and yet to not want them to grow up and change at all!!
