6 months!

Thomas, you turned 6 months old on August 23rd!

Your daddy and I can not believe that you are half of a year old!!! 

You weighed 15 lbs & 8 oz, and you were 27 3/4 inches long!
Your new pediatrician described you as long, lean, and strong!

You were wearing size 6 months and some 6-9 months clothes and size 2 diapers (I don't think you will be wearing these much longer though!)

You still eat 6 ounces every 3-4 hours during the day and rice cereal 2-3 times a day.  You still sleep through the night the majority of the time (Yeah)!

You take 2 naps a day the majority of the time. You usually take one long nap (1-3 hours) and a short nap (30-40 minutes). 

Developmentally: You are able to spin around on your tummy. You can do little baby push ups and tuck your knees under your belly (but not at the same time yet). You are sitting up for longer periods by yourself (when you want to) but you still need some support the majority of the time. You are able to move your blanket or burp rag up and down by yourself while playing peek-a-boo. You love to talk, make sounds, and squeal (we love the sound of your voice!).

Favorite things: You still love your johnny jumper, exersaucer, and rolling around on our bed.  You love going for walks in your stroller (since the weather is much cooler now!).  You love to play with our faces and pat our shoulders and faces while we are holding you. 

Three words that describe your personality: happy, determined, talkative.

We think the sound of your laugh is the BEST sound in the world!

Thomas-You were laughing at your daddy in all of these pictures!

Check out our growing baby boy!

We love you so much sweet baby boy, and we are thankful to be your mommy and daddy!

Keep the faith,
