6 months

On November 20th, my little boy turned 6 months old. I can't believe it's already been that long since he joined our family. He has come such a long way and is a lot of fun to have in our family. He can now sit on his own, stand for a few seconds by holding onto something, and get into crawling position. He's growing really well and his length is starting to catch up. At his 6 month appointment we were told that he can't quite yet start on regular baby food as he is only developmentally a 5 month old. We haven't even started with cereals, because we hardly did it with Lila and will probably just skip it. 

His statistics are:
Length: 26 in. (23%ile)
Weight: 17 lbs. 9 oz. (53%ile)
Head: 17.75 in. (93 %ile- big one! :) )

At 6 months he loves:
rolling- he will roll EVERYWHERE, it's his mode of transportation :)
toys- he really likes having something in his hands
his exersaucer- it's still one of his favorite things, but I don't think it's going to last much longer
cooing- he will coo with you all day if he could, but still no repeated syllables
being on his tummy- if he's on the floor and hasn't chosen to roll, then he wants to be on his tummy
being walked around- sometimes this is the only way to get him to be content
people- he doesn't have any stranger anxiety yet
being cuddled- I love this, because Lila wasn't a huge fan of this at this age
HIS SISTER- She'll run around his exersaucer and he'll try and "catch" her. Heaven for him!
stuffed animals- just like his sister

He doesn't love:
being alone- as soon as you leave the room, he starts to cry, or when we're all eating dinner at the kitchen table and he's in the living room
not being mobile- this little boy wants so badly to crawl, he can get up on all fours and has been able to scoot forward, but crawling is definitely a ways off

I love this little boy so much! He has the cutest smile, the sweetest spirit, the warmest love, the best giggle, and the handsomest features. We love you Brighton!

What a blessing children are! I feel so grateful to have such sweet spirits in my home.
