six months...what?!?! that's crazy.

Our little Henry is just bursting with personality these days! Other moms have told me that this is a really fun age. They're right!
  • With his clothes and diaper on, he's 18 pounds
  • He loves to make big up and down motions with his arms. Looks like he wants to direct the band!
  • "Da-da-da-da-da-da" is his favorite thing to say. I think it's cuz he gets such a big reaction out of us when he does it.
  • He loves to watch Rufus run around and gets quite a kick out of him.
  • He eats rice cereal once a day and seems to think it's okay. No big reaction or anything.
  • He has lots of new hair growing in and it is much lighter than the color he was born with. Not sure if he'll be light like me or dark like Daddy.
  • Eyes are still blue. I think they're here to stay. The blue, not the eyes, that is. :)
  • He rolls over every whichway
  • He likes to read books and pays attention to the pictures. YAY!
  • He made it to and from northern Minnesota without fussing until the last hour. (see previous post.)
  • It seems like he's close to sitting up. He can do a tri-pod with a little help.
  • He doesn't much care for his binky anymore. Fine by me.
  • He can reach and grab things with intention.
  • He likes to watch other babies or little kids. So cute!
  • He has come very close to sleeping through the night, but not quite. I'm okay with that.
  • Still gets mistaken for a girl on a daily basis. The other night I dressed him in a blue onesie, blue pants and a blue bib before we went on our walk. As we were leaving, I told him that someone would still think he was a girl. I was right.
  • He takes all his baths in the big bathtub.
  • He is starting to catch on to Peek-A-Boo
  • Has figured out how to loudly smack his lips and does it all the time.
  • Continues to be the happiest little guy!!
