6 months

You are 6 months old! It looks like your bunny shrunk! Or did you really grow that much? Your hair is coming in thicker and a little darker and your eyes are most definitely blue. You are wearing some 3-6 month clothes and some 6-12 month things. You still wear a size 2 diaper but I think we will move up to 3's the next time I buy them. You weigh about 18lb and are solid! You have some fat on you for sure but you aren't nearly as fluffy as Will was. It is funny to put you in some outfits that he filled out in the middle and they look baggy on you. The star onesie in you are wearing here was Will's and he wore it in his 4 months pictures.

I could only get a couple of pics before you would knock your bunny down. You are very active with your arms and legs now! You aren't quite sitting up yet but you roll over really well now. One night you got me up several times because you kept rolling to your back and waking up. I can usually tell on the monitor if you are on your back or belly by the way you babble.

So far you have had rice cereal, carrots and sweet potatoes. You didn't care for the rice cereal at first but tolerated it with apple juice mixed in. You really like the carrots and sweet potatoes but you don't seem psyched about eating baby food in general. We are trying, though!

You found your feet! You love to grab them and have brought them up to your mouth a couple of times! You mostly do this when I put you on the changing table. It is definitely one of the cutest things I've ever seen.

You have also found your tongue and your voice! You love to stick your tongue out. You have quite a long tongue! One day when I came to pick you up, Ms. Honey and Aubrey's momma were sitting there laughing at you because you were touching the bottom of your chin with the tip of your tongue. It looks so funny! You love to shriek now and blow bubbles and make noises. I have started taking you to the nursery at church because you are too noisy to make it if you are awake.
You love your brother and he loves you. You are always watching him in apparent awe. I hope you don't learn his bad habits! Whenever I have you in your crib taking your picture, Will throws a fit to get in there with you. Sometimes I let him, but I didn't this time so he resorted to climbing to see you.
You bring so much joy to our lives! Before you were born I couldn't imagine how you would fit in. Everything seemed so perfect with just me, daddy and Will. BUT the moment you were born I fell instantly in love with you and each day I love you more and more.

That little precious boy is growing way too fast. :) He is darling!

Isn't that funny how different kids are "built" differently, even to the point their weight doesn't tell you much? Pearl is so stocky and solid somehow, even though the numbers and charts would describe her as tall and thin. She's like a brick, meanwhile her sister is very....wispy? Their passed on clothes fit them each differently too. Fascinates me to see the individualities in kids.

Happy 6 months, Reed!
